You don’t see this happen very often, but it is always a curious case when it does.
Charlie Bell hasn’t played in the NBA for awhile, while his soon to be Ex-Wife Kenya Bell has been making a good living having Evelyn throw bottles at her on Basketball Wives and dropping R&B singles.
If you believe Charlie and Kenya is making more money than him, should she have to pay spousal support?
‘Basketball Wives’ might have ruffled a lot of feathers recently but the stars of the show are profiting big time! Especially newcomer Kenya Bell, who just signed on this season and is reportedly making $300,000 from the show plus sales from a new single that she released on Itunes. Now, her estranged hubby Charlie Bell has his hand out and he wants his cut.
Last year, Charlie was dropped from the NBA and now Kenya is making three times the amount of money he’s bringing in as a baller over in Italy. The tables have definitely turned. Although he has at least a million in the bank, he recently filed for spousal support in hopes that Kenya will now have to pay him in the divorce settlement after years of him having to support her and the kids.
Kenya, on other hand, is denying that she makes that much from the show but she would definitely like a piece of that million he has sitting in the bank.
If fair is fair, whoever is making the most money should pay the spousal support or at minimum if the salaries are close no spousal support should be given. The question is how much money is Kenya making? Hypothetically speaking if she is making close to $300k a year why would should need spousal support, as that would be plenty of money to live off of? I can understand asking for a lump settlement based off the years they have been married, but why the continued monthly support if she is doing fine on her own and the goal is being independent of Charlie.
Just something to ponder.
