The shock filing comes shortly after Damian and Kay'La's September wedding anniversary — and days after the 7-time All-Star was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks.

In the documents filed in Clackamas County Circuit Court, the athlete cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason behind the split. He said those differences “caused the irremediable breakdown of their marriage.”
