Unfortunately, another couple is throwing in the towel.
Derek Fisher recently filed for divorce in Los Angeles, TMZ Sports reports. The New York Knicks coach and his wife Candace Fisher recently celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary. It’s unclear why Derek wants out after spending more than a decade with Candace because he only cited irreconcilable differences as a reason for the breakup in his filing.
If Candace doesn’t put up a fight, it appears that this will be a fairly smooth divorce. He is asking that they split legal costs and share joint legal and physical custody of their twins, Tatum and Drew. They each have a child from a previous relationship. In 2007, their daughter Tatum was treated for retinoblastoma. Thankfully, she recovered from the rare form of eye cancer.
“This is a difficult time for me personally. For the sake of our children, I ask that everyone respects our privacy during this process,” Derek said of the split.
The estranged couple tied the knot on February 19, 2005.
