Former Basketball Wives Star Meeka Claxton Files For Divorce

Meeka Claxton, star of season three of Basketball Wives, announced in Pynk Magazine that she and husband Speedy have filed for divorce.

In article she penned for the magazine entitled “My Next Chapter,” she explained:

After 16 years together, 8 years of marriage, living in 7 different cities, 2 beautiful daughters and a championship, unfortunately, Speedy and I have decided to separate.

But not because we didn’t try or because we didn’t want our family to work. If you know me even a little bit, then you know that my family means more to me than anything else.

For the last 10 months I have fought hard for my family because I didn’t get married to get divorced. I love Craig (aka Speedy) and our family more than anything. I believe in the bond of family and the positive effect a two parent household can have on children because that’s how I was raised. It’s #FOE…Family Over Everything and that’s what I have been instilling in my kids since Day 1.

She continues, saying that she and Speedy will co-parent their two daughters and adds “Our next chapter will be our best chapter…” We wish Meeka and her family the best in this new chapter.
