Latrell Sprewell, a former NBA player, never married but became the father of five kids, including Tiffany, Tryee, and Jarett.
As reported, he rejected a 3-year $24 million contract from the Timberwolves, citing it was not enough to feed his family.
Sprewell’s family began to tear apart in the mid-2000s after he got stuck in financial problems and allegedly abused his girlfriend (his baby mama).
Sprewell’s then-girlfriend sued him for $200 million after an alleged assault and breaking the terms of the agreement. Furthermore, for endangering the welfare of his children, he was barred from seeing them.
Latrell Fontaine Sprewell played for the NBA teams: the Warriors (1992-98), Knicks (1999-2003), and Timberwolves (2003-05).
Despite 13 NBA seasons, his controversies and legal issues overshadow his accomplishments.
For instance, Sprewell received a 68-game suspension in 1997 after he choked and punched then-Warriors coach P. J. Carlesimo during practice. In 2007, after he failed $1.3 million payments and insurance.
Latrell Sprewell Kids: Tiffany, Tyree, And Jarett
The former Golden State Warriors shooting guard, Sprewell, has five kids: four with his then-girlfriend, Cadance Cabbil, and one daughter named Page from his previous relationship.
Among four, only three of his kids with Cabbil (Jarett, Tiffany, and Tyree) are known. Latrell and Candance’s youngest child (name not disclosed) was three years old in 2007.
But after their lawsuit drama in 2004, all his children turned low-key.
Candace (Latrell’s baby mama) probably wanted her kids to be away from the commotion of the media after their father’s mismanaged financials got him in trouble.
As reported, Cabbil also took over guardianship of Sprewell’s daughter Page after they met in 1989 at the University of Alabama.
She was the one who saved then-4-year-old Page when their pet dogs attacked her in their backyard in October 1994.
According to the New York Times, she sustained injuries on her lips, forehead, and nose. Also, one of her ears was bitten off.
The retired NBA player’s children are all grown-ups now but barely appear in the media.
His eldest child, Page, is 33 years old.
Back in January 2007, in her lawsuit against her boyfriend Sprewell, Candace mentioned that her kids, Jarett, Tiffany, Tyree, and the youngest, were 11, 8, 7, and 3, respectively.
As of 2023, they are 28, 24, 23, and 19, years old.
Latrell Sprewell’s Girlfriend Sued Him For $200 Million
On January 30, 2007, Sprewell’s then-girlfriend, Candace Cabbil, sued the former basketball star for $200 million in the District Court in Manhattan.
In the lawsuit, she stated that Latrell broke their long-term “cohabitation” agreement- to share his fortune and look after their children.
He even convinced her to quit her job at a hospital after they had their first child.
Also, he promised her not to worry about being taken care of despite not getting married or putting her name on his property.
However, Sprewell lived away in his Yacht in Wisconsin instead of their home in Purchase, New York. And he was not paying enough for children and household expenses.
In the suit, Candace also charged him with domestic violence. On December 11, 2006, the retired NBA star reportedly grabbed her and dragged her down a flight of stairs by her feet.
As a result, in May 2007, the judge barred him from seeing his girlfriend or kids. Afterward, the update of the case was never in the media.
