It's not the kind of court NBA player Steve Nash is used to. The former Phoenix Sun has spent the past two days in a Maricopa County courtroom locked in a bitter legal battle with his ex-wife.
She wants to move their kids to California. He says no way, and legal experts say this is all about child support.
Another day in court and still, no decision made.
Nash's ex-wife Alejandra Amarilla Menrath says she wants their three children relocated to southern California because they miss their dad.
Her attorney claims Nash doesn't want them moved because he would have to pay child support, which he doesn't pay now.
Nash makes $900,000 a month and says he has no problem financially paying child support -- but he wants kids to remain at the home they know in Paradise Valley.
He says he plans to reside in Arizona when his Lakers contract is up.
We spoke to his ex-wife briefly. She said: "This is about the best interest of the children not Steve Nash's."
Nash said he fears if he pays child support his kids could get caught up in materialism and cited his ex-wife's incessant spending as a reason for his divorce.
His attorneys brought on an education consultant who said it would be best for third graders Lola and Bella to stay at their school in Scottsdale. They also have a young son.
