Theballerlife.com has learned that NBA star Tim Duncan’s marriage to his college sweetheart and now ex-wife Amy is officially over.
Mysanantonio.com’s Guillermo Contreras reports:
In an unusual and secret hearing Tuesday that didn’t even occur at the Bexar County Courthouse, state District Judge David A. Canales granted the divorce between Duncan and his college sweetheart, Amy.
The judge later told the San Antonio Express-News that he held the hearing during his lunch hour at the offices of Tim Duncan’s lawyer, Sue Hall, at her request. The couple and their lawyers were present.
Details of the divorce, such as the division of assets and which parent gets custody of their two children, were not immediately released.
Amy Duncan initiated the divorce proceedings March 27. Tim Duncan responded with a counterpetition.
The Duncans were college sweethearts at Wake Forest University, where Tim starred on the Deacons basketball team and Amy was a cheerleader. Tim graduated in 1997 and was the first overall pick in the NBA draft, made by the Spurs.
The couple married July 21, 2001, and have a daughter and a son, records show.
Little explanation is given for the breakup.
In filings on Tim Duncan’s behalf, his lawyers even went as far as seeking information on a San Antonio personal trainer, Gilbert R. Urbano Jr. and used private investigator Robert Pizzurro for that purpose, records show. Attempts to reach Pizzurro were unsuccessful Tuesday.
Urbano told the Express-News he was “unfamiliar” with why his name appeared repeatedly in the Duncan’s divorce proceedings, including why one document asks a judge for an order barring Urbano from being “around the children at any time or at any place, including permitting him to be in the same house or work establishment or school or social function as the children, whether the children are asleep or awake.”
