Damon Wayans Jr. Taking ‘Basketball Wives’ Star Aja Metoyer to Court for Primary Custody of Daughters

*According to The Blast, “Happy Together” star Damon Wayans Jr. claims his reality star baby mama, Aja Metoyer, isn’t taking their daughters’ education seriously and questions how she spends the money she receives in child support from him and NBA star Dwyane Wade.

Wayans filed documents Friday in Los Angeles asking a judge to change the current custody orders with the “Basketball Wives” star. The former couple were once childhood sweethearts, and have two daughters ages 13 and 15. She also has a child with D-Wade, 4-year-old Xavier, who was conceived back in 2013 while the baller was reportedly on a break with Gabrielle Union.

Up until now, Metoyer had primary physical custody of the girls and both parents had joint legal custody. Wayans now wants primary custody during the week, claiming the girls are “suffering scholastically” because of their mom’s “inability to prioritize their education.”

He also claims his daughters are “habitually absent” or tardy to class, among a host of other issues he says are negatively affecting their education and home life.

The actor brings up Wade in his documents, alleging Metoyer is irresponsibly spending child support money: “I do not know how [Metoyer] spends the child support money she receives from me or the father of [Metoyer’s] other child, a 4-year-old whose father is basketball star Dwayne [sic] Wade.”

Wayans argues that Metoyer constantly “puts her own needs before those” of the children, and claims his daughters are routinely left alone to care of Xavier.

According to the court order, Metoyer must attend a child custody mediation with Wayans on October 31.
