The ex-wife of the famous Harlem Globetrotters basketball player, Meadowlark Lemon, has filed a lawsuit against him, alleging that he failed to pay child support. Missouri readers may be interested to know that the basketball player is 83 years old, and the son which he reportedly failed to financially support is now 48. The son and his mother are seeking $250,000 in missed child support payments.
Meadowlark Lemon and his ex-wife divorced in 1977. She claims that he left her with overwhelming debt and meager financial means. The lawsuit states that the basketball star never complied with the original terms of their divorce, but it is not clear what those terms required. The son claims that the mother's post-divorce financial troubles are to blame for a series of misfortunes in his own life.
