Theballerlife.com has learned that NBA star turned New York Knicks coach Derek Fisher has filed for divorce from his wife of 10 years, Candace Fisher.
Just one month after they celebrated their 10 year anniversary, Fisher filed the divorce docs in Los Angeles…citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the the divorce.
Fisher issued a statement saying, “This is a difficult time for me personally. For the sake of our children, I ask that everyone respects our privacy during this process.”
The Fishers were married Feb. 19th, 2005, and have two children together: twins Tatum and Drew. They each also have another child from a previous relationship.
Tatum has recovered from retinoblastoma, a rare form of eye cancer for which she was treated in 2007.
The divorce seems to be as amicable as these things get — with Fisher asking for joint legal and physical custody of the children.
He also wants to split the legal costs.
