San Antonio Spurs forward Danny Green told a popular New York radio station he doesn’t believe the rumors about All-Star teammate Tim Duncan being gay or bisexual and even if he were "Timmy is Tim. I'm not going to look at him any differently."
Rumors about Duncan’s sexuality have swirled ever since his wife alleged in divorce papers she has long suspected her husband of 12 years was bisexual and that during the first two years of their marriage another man he befriended while an All American at Wake Forest even lived under the same roof as them.
Appearing on Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club Show, Green added “I definitely haven't suspected anything. He's going through some stuff and that's what happens when you go through a divorce. It gets ugly."
Through it all, even as proceedings have grown more contentious, Duncan has remained mum--- short of successfully having his attorneys seek and gain a gag order against his soon to be ex. Amy Duncan formally filed for divorce from her husband back in March, stating that the couple's marriage was "insupportable" because of discord and conflict.
The pair are expected back in court sometime this summer, as at the time of her filing lawyers for Duncan successfully petitioned the court to have proceedings delayed until at least 30 days after the end of his NBA season.
According to news reports, the couple’s relationship has long been on the rocks because both of them have been cheating on one another.
"Amy treated Tim like a b*** throughout their marriage because she knew he was f**** his BFF.,” a source close to the couple previously told the media. “Tim knows Amy was cheating on him but he's willing to give her whatever she wants, because he doesn't want Amy to tell the world that he's bisexual."
Other news reports have indicated that Tim Duncan hired a private investigator to begin tailing his wife as far back as a year ago. Duncan’s attorney have indicated he plans to enforce the prenuptial agreement the couple signed at the time of their union, which came four years after he was selected as the first pick in the 1997 NBA draft. Just last year, Duncan inked a 3-year, $36 million extension with the team.
