Apparently, Damian Lillard said, “New Team…New Me,” because the NBA baller filed for divorce from his wife, Kay’La Lillard, five days after being traded from the Portland Trailblazers to the Milwaukee Bucks.

Kay’La & Damian Lillard Relationship Timeline

Damian and Kay’La (Hanson) were college sweethearts, who met and fell in love while attending Weber State University in Utah.

The NBA baller gushed to Ebony Magazine about how Kay’La took care of him.

She had the car, an apartment, and bent over backwards for me. Kay’La accepted me with all my flaws as a young man.

During their 10 years together, Damian Lillard and Kay’La welcomed three beautiful children, son Damian Jr., 5, and 2-year-old twins Kalii and Kali.

Damian proposed to Kay’La during NBA All-Star weekend in Chicago in 2020.

I told her we were attending a new Valentine’s Day event the NBA was hosting.

We showed up to the venue where I had a wall full of roses designed with ‘Will You Marry Me?’

Damian and Kay’La eventually tied the knot in September 2021 in Santa Barbara, California. 

On October 2, Damian filed for divorce citing “irreconcilable differences” that “caused the irremediable breakdown of their marriage.” 

According to the divorce petition, things began to fall apart in December 2022, when Kay’La Lillard moved into a $2.7 million home in West Linn and while Damian remained in the family’s $7.7 million mansion in West Linn. 

In September, Damian relocated to a home in Tualatin, Oregon.

As the news of his divorce filing goes public, Damian Lillard, is settling in with the Milwaukee Bucks

A recent video, posted on Instagram, shows the city welcoming the rapper, Dame D.O.L.L.A, and NBA baller to the Mill.

Meanwhile, Kay’La has deactivated her social media accounts to protect her peace. 

It’s sad to see another marriage come to an end, but I wish Kay’La and Damian Lillard the very best as they begin new (and separate) chapters in their lives.
