Clearly we’re balling on a budget here?
Miami Heat baller Chris Bosh might be a few games away from an NBA championship ring and the Olympic Games but his baby mama Allison Mathis and his daughter are one step closer to food stamps!
It has been revealed by Mathis’ lawyer, Jane Carey, that Bosh’ first baby mama has applied for food stamps after recently losing her job. According to lawyer Carey, Bosh only pays child support in the amount of $2,600 a month, when he should be paying at least $30,000.
Carey talked publicly about the case for the first time today because, she says, she’s tired of the 28-year-old Bosh — who got married last year to Adrienne Bosh and recently celebrated the birth of their son.
For two years, the ball player has been battling Matthis in courts in Orange County (Florida), California and Texas on anything from child support to banning her appearance from VH-1’s Basketball Wives to how much time he spends with the child.
Things, however, have changed since Matthis lost her job.
According to state guidelines, someone like Bosh whose yearly salary is in the $18 million-range should be paying about $30,000-a-month. So Carey asked a judge to adjust the child support.
Meanwhile, she says, Bosh shouldn’t be allowed to take a three-year-old to London for three weeks.
“My client just lost her job and applied for food stamps for her and Mr. Bosh’s daughter. She’s about to be foreclosed on, he won’t help her and all he wants to do is go to London with his daughter. Are (you) kidding?”
Honestly, I feel $30,000 is a bit much to pay a month for child support, but what do I know, I wasn’t impregnated by a basketball player.
On the other hand, I feel the flashy/excessive life that Bosh’s wife Adrienne lives is simply ridiculous if Mathis indeed has to go on food stamps and is about to have her home foreclosed on.
I’m not an expert in baby mama drama, but shouldn’t you want to ensure your only daughter and your first child is comfortable?
P.S. Doesn’t Allison and Adrienne resemble each other a little?
