Thompson facing contested divorce

Speculation gives way to facts in the defection of Lance Thompson to Tennessee.

When Thompson bolted to Tennessee he cited personal issues as one of the reasons for making the move. Ian R. Rapoport of the Birmingham News provided this insight into what was going on in Thompson’s life.

“Stacy Lynn Thompson, who has been married to Lance Thompson since 1990, cites irreconcilable differences in the paperwork filed on Jan. 8 with Tuscaloosa County Circuit Court. The couple has three children and lived together in Tuscaloosa until the unspecified time of their separation.”

According to Rapoport’s report, the divorce is contested with a hearing scheduled for February 2.
