Throughout two decades in NBA, Karl Malone is treated as one of the most famous superstars in basketball. Many people admire his excellent talent as well as the determination in building up his career. However, the way he has treated with his son is very heartless and leads to a serious controversy around his life. From 1985 to 2004, Karl Malone has worked as an official member of Los Angeles Lakers and he spent most of his time contributing to Utah Jazz. The 57-year-old player made a good impression with spectators and achieved many valuable prizes throughout his career. He was the heavy opponent of Michael Jordan- a professional basketball player of all time.
According to the world lists, Karl Malone had totally 14 times taking part in the All-star, two times achieving MVP All-star as well as a full season. These are some shining examples of his individual prizes in his life. Thanks to a great contribution to this sport, Karl Malone was honored a T-shirt with number 32 by Utah Jazz as a special thanks for his loyalty to the basketball team. Unluckily, the nice image that Malone has established for years became meaningless when he had a bad attitude toward his son.
At the end of the 1980s, Malone faced up a serious problem with a woman named Gloria Bell. She informed all of the people that they had a son called Demetress Carte Bell when she was just 13 years old and Karl Malone turned to 20. Gloria Bell said that she felt very depressed because she didn’t have a job to earn a living and she had to bring up the son too. Therefore she hoped that Kark could provide her an amount of money every month which was up to 200 dollars. Although this might be small money in comparison with the high salary of this player, he decided not to support anything for his son at that time.
Gloria Bell couldn’t accept this bad behavior of Karl and she threatened to take legal action against him over his irresponsibility toward his son. The judge asked her whether she wanted to sue him for having sex with a woman under 16 or not, she declined to do that and just wanted to get some benefits from him. The chairman informed that Karl Malone had to support his son about 125 dollars each month, but he seemed not to agree with this decision.
Time is the best way to prove anything. It can also help people forget all the bad things in the past and start doing a better one. Luckily, the relationship between Malone and his son is becoming better as you can see the appearance of Karl Malone in every Demetress Bell’s tournament. “ I know I am wrong. I will try my best to compensate for anything I have done with my son”.
