NBA great Damian Lillard slammed his wife Kay'La with divorce papers on October 2, 2023.

“(Respondent) should be restored her former name of Kay’La Hanson,” Lillard, 33, stated in court documents he filed days after being traded from the Portland Trail Blazers to the Milwaukee Bucks.

Citing “irreconcilable difference,” the 7-time NBA All-Star also wants Kay’La, 31, to dish out the cash for what could be a bruising battle over his estimated $100 million fortune, as predetermined by a premarital agreement.

“Each party should be required to pay his or her respective attorney fees and costs in this dissolution action,” stated the documents filed in Oregon’s Clackamas County Circuit Court.

The couple met and fell in love while attending Weber State University in Utah. Kay’La dutifully helped Lillard become an NBA superstar for 10 years before getting hitched in Santa Barbara, California, on Sept. 4, 2021.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, it is unknown if Kay’La plans to challenge the ironclad prenup she signed on August 30, 2021 – romantically just five days before their wedding.

The court records also showed the couple began living apart just five days before Christmas 2022 – with Lillard ditching his wife to live about seven miles away in a $7.7 million, 5-bedroom spread in West Linn Oregon.

Meanwhile, Kay’La was left behind in a much more modest $2.6 million, 5-bedroom home in the same town.

Even though Kay’La has not responded to the divorce filing, renowned attorney Laurel P. Hook submitted court documents on October 5 stating that she will represent Kay’La's interest in the big buck’s divorce.
