According to, Lakers guard Steve Nash is involved in a “bizarre custody fight.”

Alejandra Amarilla, Nash’s former wife, wants to move with their three children to Los Angeles, but Nash wants them to continue living in Phoenix, TMZ reports.


Divorce lawyer Lance Spiegel acknowledged to TMZ that he is representing Amarilla, but he wouldn’t elaborate on the record to what end.

Nash is sidelined with a leg injury and hasn’t played since the second game of the season. The Lakers hope to have him back in a matter of weeks.


Nash announced in 2010 that he and Amarilla were divorcing.
