According to the San-Antonio Express-News, Judge David A. Canales formally granted the decree in a secret hearing held at the offices of Duncan’s attorney’s office on Tuesday. Details about a split of the couple’s assets and how their two children will spend their time with each parent remain under wraps.
Amy Duncan filed for divorce from Duncan, her college sweetheart, in March of this year arguing the couple’s marriage was “unsupportable because of discord and conflict.” Duncan later countered by filing a counter petition. At the height of the proceedings, rumors flew Amy Duncan has long suspected her NBA All-Star husband might be gay or at least bisexual.
She later also claimed that during their first two years of a marriage another man he befriended while at Wake Forest actually lived under the same roof with them. Attorneys for countered those allegations by requesting a gag order of all subsequent proceedings and court filings.
Reports also surfaced that Tim Duncan hired a private investigator to begin tailing his wife as far back as a year ago. Throughout the proceedings, Duncan’s attorneys indicated he planned to strictly enforce the terms of 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.
Late last month, teammate Danny Green appeared on an episode of the Power 105.1 Breakfast Club Show in New York where he was asked about rumors of his star teammate’s sexuality. “Timmy is Tim,” said Green, adding “I definitely haven’t seen or suspected anything. I’m not going to look at him any differently. He’s going through some stuff and that’s what happens when you go through a divorce. It gets ugly.”
