The Chris Bosh child support drama continues? Miami Heat star Chris Bosh might possibly be one game away from nabbing yet another Championship ring with his teammates, but his recent victory in the court over child support might be short-lived. As we recently reported, the NBA star’s ex girlfriend Allison Mathis went through the courts to fight for the child support payments to be increased because Bosh was paying her $2600 a month. The athlete’s baby mama claimed she recently lost her administrative assistant job and home, and the money Bosh was paying just wasn’t enough to stay afloat. Despite all of her attorney’s efforts, Allison lost the case and Chris Bosh was able to use his mansion in Texas to claim Texas residency, and the state’s laws surrounding child support aren’t necessarily in a woman’s advantage. Allison’s lawyer tried to prove Chris was lying about his residency, but she failed. However, Chris Bosh’s recent admission of his loyalty in Miami and his public claim that Miami will “always” be his home might have just hurt his recent court win. Gossip Extra reports:
Baby mama Allison Mathis sued Bosh to force him to pay higher Florida child support rates, about $30,000-a-month instead of the $2,600-a-month that a court in Texas told Bosh to pay.
Orlando Judge Robert Evans ruled in favor of Bosh — but with the case now in appeals court, Mathis’ lawyer says she’ll use Bosh’s new-found love for Miami to show how Bosh lied to Evans.
“Chris Bosh’s testimony in court about his being a Florida resident is exactly opposite of what he recently told the media,” said attorney Jane Carey. “He now says he intends to retire here after playing for the Heat.
“You can’t be a resident of Texas and retire in Florida.
“Chris Bosh fooled the trial judge, but we believe that the Appellate Court will reverse the lower court decision.”
