Lemon’s ex-wife and younger son are suing him for $250,000 in child support. The basketball player’s former wife says he left her buried in bills and with little money to support her children. When the couple divorced in 1977, Lemon claimed he no longer had the income to pay court-ordered child support because he had left the Globetrotters. Lemon, who is now a motivational speaker in Arizona, said he will contest the matter in Connecticut court.
I don’t know what they are doing. John is 48 years old now. I don’t know if he is running out of money, but if that is so he ought to get out and get a job. My former wife was a good wife.
