PORTLAND, Ore - After the Portland Trail Blazers finally met Damian Lillard’s request to be traded in a blockbuster move that sent the seven-time All-Star to Milwaukee, it appears he’s dealing with another life-changing event off the court.
The 33-year-old point guard filed for divorce from his wife, Kay’La Lillard, on Oct. 2, according to multiple reports.
In 2021, the two wed in Santa Barbara, Calif. and share three children together – a five-year-old son and two-year-old twins.
Willamette Week reported the divorce was filed in Clackamas County Circuit Court citing "irreconcilable differences" that "caused irremediable breakdown of their marriage."
The publication also reported the two have been living separately since December 2022.
While he wasn't traded to Miami as desired, he now gets to call two-time NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo his teammate. Now, the Milwaukee Bucks are a legitimate threat in the Eastern Conference.

The Oakland native is set to make $45.6 million this season.
