Chris Bosh and his baby mama are still at it. Usher might have had a victory against Tameka Raymond in their nasty child custody and child support battle, but it appears that Chris Bosh may not be so lucky when it comes to his heated battle with former girlfriend and baby mama Allison Mathis. As we previously reported, Allison Mathis is currently seeking an increase in monthly child support payments, as it was revealed that Bosh is only paying his former girlfriend $2,600 a month, despite raking in over 16 million a year with his hefty NBA salary. Allison’s story made headlines recently because she had been laid off from her administrative job, and even lost her home to foreclosure. She even revealed that the NBA player left her for his current wife when she was six months pregnant. Despite that, Chris Bosh has stood firm in refusing to make an increase in the child support payments to his baby mama.
The last thing reported was that Chris Bosh would attempt to claim Texas residency, so the $2600 monthly payment would stick and not be challenged or increased by the courts. Welp, looks like Chris Bosh may need a backup plan and his baby mama might get the upper-hand. According to reports, he’s having a rather harm time swaying the judge into agreeing that he’s a resident of Texas.
Here’s the report:
Miami Heat superstar Chris Bosh was grilled for nearly two hours in an Orlando courtroom this afternoon by lawyers and a judge trying to determine whether the power forward is a Florida resident.
Clad in an impeccable blue blazer and white pants, Dallas native Bosch was contradicted over and over again. And, at times, he was made to look like a liar by the attorney who represents Bosh’s baby mama in what’s been a three-year battle for the custody and financial support of their 3-year-old girl.
At one point, the tall-head was reduced to reading from the mortgage papers he signed for his $12.5 million-Miami Beach home.
After claiming repeatedly that he is a Texas resident, Bosh read out loud an affidavit he signed in 2010 to obtain the mortgage from Deutsche Bank. The affidavit was to swear he had the intention to make his North Bay Road home his primary residence — and therefore become a Florida resident!
So why is Bosh, who’s been playing for the Heat for two seasons, so adamant that he is a Texan through and through?
If baby mama Allison Mathis is able to prove that Bosh really lives in Florida, Orange County Judge Robert Evans could then order Bosh to pay much more in child support.
How much? Try $30,000 a month instead of the $2,600 a month that a Texas judge ordered him to pay three years ago!
In another surprising revelation, voting records admitted as evidence showed Bosh — an ardent supporter of President Barack Obama – did not vote in the 2008 presidential election!
Bosh’s voting because an issue because citizens vote in the state they consider to be their home state.
“I did mail in a ballot,” Bosh told Jane Carey, Mathis’ lawyer.
“How could you,” Carey countered. “They purged your name from the rolls.”
“I guess it was just a mistake,” Bosh replied.
Records showed Bosh, who remained unflappable and patient all afternoon, re-registered to vote in Dallas County two weeks before today’s hearing!
