Theballerlife.com has learned that Anita Scott, the estranged wife of former NBA star turned coach Byron Scott, has told a divorce judge that he needs to hurry and pay her spousal support so she can continue to live her same lifestyle she has been accustomed to living for years.
Last year, TMZ Sports broke the story that Byron filed for divorce from his college sweetheart Anita Scott after 29 years of marriage — right before he signed a $17 million contract with the Lakers.
But Anita says they were living large way before the Lakers gig — and in new court docs obtained by TMZ Sports, she spells out why she needs spousal support asap, since she doesn’t have a job and is living in a cramped 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom condo in Culver City which is “not comparable to the lavish and spacious homes we purchased during the marriage.”
Here’s a sample of the life Anita says she was accustomed to during her marriage to Byron:
— Anita says the couple lived in several insane cribs over the years (8 bedroom pad in NJ, 7 bedroom house in New Orleans, swanky 4 bedroom penthouse in Cleveland).

— Anita says she “regularly” bought clothes from Chanel, Gucci, Prada and Louis Vuitton … with no specific dollar limit.
— Anita says she dropped at least $600 every six weeks for hair upkeep … and $500-per-month on manis, pedis and massages. Plus another $400-per-month on facials and “other personal maintenance.”
— The Bahamas. Once a year. First class airfare. Suites at top-rated resorts. Oh, and they’d often pay for additional family members to join along.
Scott and his wife, Anita, have three children together: Thomas, LonDen and DaRon.
On June 2013, Byron and Anita separated and on March 2014, Byron filed for divorce after 29 years of marriage due to irreconcilable differences.
