After 14 years of marriage, Kevin Garnett separated from his wife, Brandi Padilla, yet that never stopped him from being the best father he can be.

A little less than a year ago, Brandi Padilla filed for divorce from her husband, NBA superstar Kevin Garnett, with whom she shares two children.

GARNETT’S PRIDE AND JOY

Garnett dominated the NBA for two decades and became one of the legends in the league, yet with all his success, his greatest achievement remains to be his two kids.

The former couple’s daughters, Kapri and Kavalli, often appear to be the subject of the former athlete’s Instagram profile, exhibiting his immense love for the two.

The Boston Celtics’ power forward welcomed his eldest daughter Kapri in 2008, followed by Kavalli in 2013. In his many years as a star, Garnett always separated family from fame and chose to live a private life.

The three are in their first year of eligibility to be recognized in the great basketball memorial, all having played their last game in the NBA three years ago.

The father-of-two reportedly had monikers for both his kids, “Peanut” and “Boo Boo,” which he believes is a sweet way of keeping their bond personal.

MARRIAGE AND DIVORCE STORY

Garnett and Padilla tied the knot in 2004 at an intimate ceremony in California, years after being together. Their wedding was the reason behind the NBA legend’s decision to skip the 2004 Summer Olympics in Greece.

For years, the pair kept their relationship private, bringing it much success. However, they met their end in 2019 after the mother-of-two filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences.

According to court documents, Padilla sought physical custody of their children with joint legal custody and spousal support.

JOINING THE HALL OF FAME

Garnett was inducted to the Hall of Fame in 2020, along with Tim Duncan, and the late Kobe Bryant, who recently passed away.

The three are in their first year of eligibility to be recognized in the great basketball memorial, all having played their last game in the NBA three years ago.

Certainly, there is a dent felt to the 2020 draft class with the absence of a five-time NBA Champion, the Black Mamba.

The late Lakers legend’s wife expresses immense gratitude for her husband’s induction, calling the moment the peak of his career.
