Wife of ex-NBA player Antonio Davis wants divorce, says hubby’s a thief

antonio-davisKendra Rae Davis is calling it quits from her 19-year marriage with former All-Star NBA player Antonio Davis, according to TMZ.

And she’s had it with the ex-Toronto Raptors player blowing through hundreds of thousands of dollars from their joint account.

Kendra, a former interior designer for Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Kim Zolciak, filed for divorce back in June. It was in July, Kendra claims, that Antonio pulled out $133,510 from their joint funds. Antonio also allegedly took out $563,041 to buy himself a new house.

According to TMZ, Antonio rebuffed Kendra’s claims of theft in a letter,  essentially saying, “… the house purchase was in the works before divorce papers were filed, so tough.”

Nonetheless, Kendra expects Antonio to return the loot and pay her legal bills.

According to a source from Forbes, a spouse can withdraw any amount of cash from the joint account only prior to any legal proceedings. But after the divorce papers are filed, “certain restraining orders kick into place,” Kelly Chang, an LA divorce attorney, said.

“As to the amount it is wise to withdraw [after legal proceedings], Chang notes that ‘technically, if it’s community [property], then you can withdraw up to 50%… the problem is, the other spouse may have reimbursement claims, etc., and because there is a restraining order, you may run into problems if you have a vindictive ex,’” the magazine says.

Chang would’ve told Antonio to “withdraw any and all funds you deem necessary prior to filing a divorce. That way you don’t run into any problems with violating court orders and such.” If Antonio blew more than half of their joint funds, Kendra may have a case here.

Antonio Davis played 15 seasons in the NBA, for Indiana Pacers, Toronto Raptors, Chicago Bulls and New York Knicks.

He appeared in total of 903 NBA games (524 started), averaging 10.0 ppg, 7.5 rpg and 1 block per game in 28.9 mpg. David was named NBA All-Star in 2001, while playing for the Toronto Raptors.
