Trevor Ariza was a solid player in the NBA that made over $115 million in nearly 20 years of playing professional basketball. Things have surely changed for him since retirement.

Ariza, who retired from the NBA in 2022, can no longer afford to pay for his once-lavish lifestyle and is pleading for lower child support payments, according to RadarOnline. The 37-year-old is in the midst of a heated divorce with estranged wife Bree Anderson, who is demanding that child support be enough to maintain the fancy life he gave her while married.
“Ex-Lakers star Trevor Ariza told the court he is in the process of reducing his monthly expenses — because he can no longer afford his once lavish lifestyle after retiring from the NBA, has learned,” wrote Ryan Naumann of

“According to court documents obtained by, Ariza, who retired in 2022, said he currently has no average monthly income.

“Trevor played in the league for over a decade and made over $116 million with his salary alone.

“Ariza and his estranged wife Bree Anderson are in the middle of a nasty divorce. She has demanded he pays her monthly child support for their two kids.

“Bree said the support should be sufficient so that she could maintain the extravagant life she had while married.

“She said during the marriage they had private chefs, a household staff, Rolls Royce vehicles, real estate and business holdings, and a massive 5-bedroom, 7-bathroom residence in Playa Vista.”
Ariza claimed his income has dried up, but Anderson exposed him for the millions of dollars that he has saved up as well as property that could be liquidated.

The former NBA forward also claims he brings in about an average of $4,000 a month in income from rental properties, and that he recently got a one-time payment from the NBA of just over $400,000.

Ariza’s monthly expenses include $13 thousand for the mortgage, $13 thousand in child support for his other son, $14 thousand on several vehicles, and $19 thousand on “other” stuff. The “other” stuff consists of what he pays his personal assistant, basketball training for his children, massages, boxing classes, self-care, and $2,500 to his girlfriend.

Ariza hopes that providing his monthly expenses to the judge will help him settle the child support payments at a much lower number.

“‘I am in the process of reducing my monthly expenses as I am now unemployed & cannot maintain my former lifestyle,’ Trevor wrote in his declaration.”
Anderson recently got a restraining order against Ariza after she alleged he had abused her when they were together while stating he has shown up to her home announced several times. Ariza denies all the accusations and states she was the abusive partner in their relationship. They’ll face each other in court later this month.

In his final NBA season, Ariza averaged a career-low 4.0 points per game while shooting just 33.3 percent from the field and 27.0 percent from 3-point range. The defense he was once known for was virtually non-existent.
