Who is Damian Lillard’s estranged wife, Kay’La Hanson?

Kay’La Hanson was born on November 9, 1991, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

She graduated from Legacy High School in 2010.

Hanson started her educational career studying nursing at Webster State University in Utah, where she met Damian Lillard.

She then worked in healthcare for a reported six years.

Now Hanson owns her own nail business DIPPED in Oregon.

As Willamette Week reported, Lillard filed for divorce from Hanson on October 2, 2023, in Clackamas County Circuit Court.


The filing cites “irreconcilable differences” between the former couple that “caused the irremediable breakdown of their marriage,” per the outlet.

Basketball star Lillard’s divorce filing comes less than a week after he was traded from the Portland Trail Blazers to the Milwaukee Bucks.

In February 2024, Lillard opened up to Sports Illustrated about how his life had progressed since leaving Portland.

He said, “Just my whole life was set up perfectly right there. It was a great situation. So just leaving that behind alone is a lot.”

“It’s definitely lonely because I’m such a family guy. My life is my family,” he explained.


“I’m fine because I’m grown. But it’s definitely lonely. I’m filled up by those people.”
