Dr. J, wife divorcing after nearly 29 years

Associated Press

Sanford, Fla. -- Basketball Hall of Famer Julius Erving and his wife of nearly 29 years are divorcing.

Turquoise Erving, 52, filed a petition for divorce in Seminole County, citing irreconcilable differences.

Julius Erving, also 52, currently a vice president with the Orlando Magic, acknowledged in ongoing divorce proceedings that he has accepted responsibility for a second out-of-wedlock child. In 1999, he admitted that he was the father of women's tennis pro Alexandra Stevenson

Erving said in a personal financial affidavit filed with the Circuit Court of Seminole County last November that he is paying $2,000 a month in child support for a son. Turquoise Erving contends in the public court records that the mother of the boy lives in Orlando.

The divorce petition was filed in May.

This is sooooo sad. I don't blame Turquoise at all. She should clean him out for cheating on her TWO times with kids.

Dr. J was my hero growing up. It goes to show that to err is to be human.
