Who is Feby Torres? Meet 'Basketball Wives' star who allegedly sued NBA star Lance Stephenson for child support
Feby Torres may just be a season old but she has been serving drama much before 'Basketball Wives' happened to her. The reality TV star was once Lance Stephenson's girlfriend. The couple started off well and share two kids together. And that is the only connection they have at this point, given that the romance is out of the picture.
She moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in rap music but before she can get on with that, there are a lot of loose ends she must first make an effort to tie up on the show.
Feby was introduced as Evelyn Lozada's friend. While she got along with her, the equations with the rest of the cast is up in the air. We'll see what happens to that when the new season premieres. For now, let's focus on what her relationship has been like with the former NBA star.

A lot has been written and speculated about Feby's relationship with Lance. But she's more than that. According to a Married Biography report, Feby is a model and fitness fanatic. So far, she has modeled for Miss Circle and Fenty Beauty. The publication further shared that her estimated net worth is $500,000. Apart from steady paychecks from 'BBW', she earns her money as an influencer. She poses with fitness products and clothing on Instagram. As a model, she reportedly gets paid roughly $20,000.
As we mentioned earlier, the relationship between Feby and Lance started off smoothly. While we don't know what broke them apart, we have information on what exactly went wrong six years ago when Feby allegedly sued Lance for child support.
In 2015, Feby was receiving $6,000 as child support every month, Distractify reported, and added that she had asked the number to be doubled. A year later, Feby's lawyer stated at the Brooklyn Family Court: "Raising two children in Brooklyn there's obvious expenses involved ... expenses increase. Our client is asking for support for her child's needs."
During one of the court sessions, Feby stated that she would like to move out of their $1,800 per month apartment in Bedford-Stuyvesant due to gun violence in that area. Lance, who was present and on the witness stand, confirmed that it was Feby who picked the neighborhood. "I want my kids to be happy," he had said and added: "I want them to be in the best possible position. She picked that place. I didn’t pick that place."
The couple has since moved on. While Lance welcomed a baby girl, Leya, in 2017, Feby has not been going on many dates. It appears she wants to be known beyond her relationships.
