theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reports, Steve Francis has been ordered to not drink or use mind altering drugs before he gets visitation with his children. A Texas judge presiding over his divorce hit the ex NBA star with a permanent injunction also prohibiting him abusing substances around his kids.
Here’s the latest: Shelby and Steve Francis recently worked out an agreement to bring the divorce to an end. According to court docs, the judge signed off on the divorce officially, stating the marriage between the two is dissolved on the grounds of insupportability.
He granted Shelby the exclusive right to make the final decision for their kids related to their education, the primary residence and medical treatments.
Further, the judge hit Francis with a permanent injunction that bans him from consuming alcohol or mind-altering drugs within the twelve hours before he gets time with his kids.
The former NBA star will pay $2,137 a month in child support to his ex-wife. The two settled all issues related to their assets and property. The settlement brings the divorce to a close after several months of nasty back and forth.
Here’s the backstory: Last February, Shelby Francis filed for divorce from her husband following 10 years of marriage. The couple were married on September 9th, 2006 and have ceased to live together as a husband and wife on October 1st, 2014.
Shelby accused Steve of committing adultery and being guilty of cruel treatment toward her that renders further living together insupportable.
She demanded the court order Steve to pay child support for their 2 minor children, noting he
should have to put the money in a trust, since his wages can’t be garnished –due to him not playing in the NBA since 2008. During his NBA career, he pulled in over $100 million dollars playing for the Houston Rockets, Orlando Magic and New York Knicks.
According to the docs, she blasted her ex for wasting their money and said he committing fraud against their community estate and asked the judge to award her a bigger cut of their estate as a result.
Shelby even said her soon-to-be ex-husband was abusing drugs and alcohol and demanded he submit to a drug test in the case before custody was determined.
