PHOENIX (AP) - An Arizona appellate court says Los Angeles Lakers star Steve Nash may have to pay additional child support for his three children and that he and his ex-wife can't say bad things about each other through social media.
A Court of Appeals panel's ruling Tuesday says a judge must consider ordering Nash to pay more than the children's ``basic needs.''
The court also upheld a judge's order barring the couple from disparaging each other through social media.
It said Alejandra Amarilla Nash used her Twitter account to make a ``biting criticism'' of Nash after their divorce was granted.
The ruling says the order doesn't violate her free-speech rights because both agreed to limit their speech under their joint custody agreement.
The couple divorced in 2011. They have a son and two daughters.
