Damian Lillard is still adjusting to life in Milwaukee after the Bucks acquired him from the Portland Trail Blazers via a three-team trade last month. Lillard was in Portland for 11 seasons, and it will be a tough situation for his family.

It’s also worth mentioning that he’s in the process of divorcing from his wife Kay’La. Lillard recently spoke with Sportskeeda’s Mark Medina in an exclusive interview regarding his trade to the Bucks.

He opened up about being in the moment, and there were times he could not believe that he now plays in Milwaukee. It has been an unreal situation for Lillard, who said that his kids are still in Portland.

“There are some days where I sit there and I think, ‘Man, I live here now. I’m not going back home,'” Lillard said. “That’s the reason I keep saying I try to stay present and be where my feet are. If you start to think too much, your mind will start going all over the place.”My kids are still in Portland right now because it was such an abrupt transition. But I try not to think about all of those things. I know it’ll all pass, and everything will be as it should be. That’s what I focus on – being in the moment.”

Damian Lillard has three children with his wife Kay’La, a son named Damian Jr. and twins, Kali and Kalii. The kids were all born in Portland, and the family lived in the West Linn neighborhood in Oregon.

Milwaukee Bucks Star Dealing With Ugly Divorce

Just days after his move to the Bucks, Lillard filed for divorce against his estranged wife, Kay’La Lillard. The seven-time All-Star cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason behind their split.

Kay’La has now fired back and he’s hitting Dame where it hurts the most. According to a report by Whitney Vasquez of RadarOnline, Kay’La is now demanding full custody of their three kids:

“It is in the children’s best interests that I be awarded sole custody. I am best positioned to address the ongoing needs of our minor children. I have been responsible for the children’s care since their birth,” her declaration filed on October 6 read.

Kay’La has been a stay-at-home mom since she gave birth to their oldest child, Damian Jr., who is now five years old. The couple also share twins, Kali and Kalii, who will both turn three in January.

It did not stop there for Kay’La. Naturally, she had to cite a compelling reason as to why the court should grant her full custody of their children. It was at this point that Kay’La revealed that Lillard is actually an absentee father.

She alleges that Dame has “never been the sole parent responsible for the care of all three of our children, for any hours-long period of time without the help of nannies, assistants, and/or family members.”

Moreover, Kay’La argues that Lillard’s recent move away from Portland, where their kids reside, will force him to spend even less time with his children:

“Father has recently relocated to Wisconsin to play for the Milwaukee Bucks,” read the declaration.

“… I understand he is busy and has many commitments he must attend to. I also understand that the brand ‘Damian Lillard’ needs to continue with an image of a family-man. Despite our separation for several months, I have continued to support that image to the public.”
