The Chris Bosh baby mama drama continues. As we recently reported, Miami Heat star Bosh has been heavily involved in a nasty child support battle with his ex girlfriend Allison Mathis. Allison has been fighting hard in the court to get an increase in her $2600 a month child support payments, and Chris Bosh caught a break and was able to get the judge to agree the monthly payment would remain the same and was deemed enough for Allison to take care of their daughter. Of course Allison’s lawyer has requested an appeal on the court’s decision, especially since Bosh won only because he was able to prove his Texas residency, a claim he may have weakened since he just claimed several days ago that Miami will always be his home.

It now appears Bosh plans to fight back against an increase in child support by challenging the custody arrangements. According to TMZ, he has now filed paperwork to request primary custody of their 4-year-old daughter. The website reports:

Bosh has filed legal docs asking a judge to strip his ex, Allison Mathis, of primary physical custody of Trinity.

Bosh claims Mathis has been trying to alienate the kid from him … blocking contact, refusing to let them travel together, and poisoning their daughter against him.

Bosh wants primary physical custody, but says he’s more than willing to give Mathis her fair share of mother-daughter time in the form of visitation.

Mathis has fired back in her own legal docs, saying his complaints are BS.

    That’s what’s up Chris. I see not a single thing wrong with this. I sincerely hope that you can get full custody.

  2. So I guess Bosh got some advice D Wade. These “men” make me sick. Using the court system to get even with their exes. Smh.

    1. Wanting to have full custody of your child is getting “even with their exes”? Please elaborate on that. Is there something wrong with a man wanting full custody of his child?

      1. These are men who only want their kids when their ex ask for more money to help support their child. Most of the nba players are trying to get custody of their kids to save money but let the nanny raise them and clam it is them to the media. I hope that the court let the mother keep the little girl. Usher did it D Wade and not Bosh these men are trying to save money and stick it to their baby mamas at the same time just to say that they want to be the best dad but you are just hiring a nanny

        1. How exactly do you know this ma’am. Do you know his motivation for doing any of this? You’re making a TON of assumptions in a very small space. Do you have any proof to bolster these accusations? Do you understand what this man does for his child outside of the court ordered support? Please research what this young man does on top of the court ordered support. I understand #teamwoman, I really do. However it’s misguided in this instance. Is it not possible that these this woman is not the best possible parent for their child?

          1. great response Uncontainable spirit! I agree if he is the more stable parent, why not? why should he have to pay her to do what she is supposed to do. Child support should be to take care of the children. not give the other parent a new lifestyle- if they were never married!!!

  3. Another house kneegrow marries a non black woman and now strives to make his black baby momma childless. Piece of sh-t.

    1. Wait a minute… just rereading this… House negro? lol! Incredible. That’s HEEE-LARIOUS!
      There is nothing that Chris Bosh can do to make the child’s mother ‘childless’… she will ALWAYS be the mother of the child.

      If what you are stating is fact then Chris Bosh not having custody of the child as the mother does makes Chris Bosh ‘childless’…. but oops, that cannot be the case for were it the case there would be no need for child support from Mr. Bosh because he would be ‘childless’…

      Care to reposition your argument? 🙂

  4. I’m not taking a side. And I refuse to because common sense tells me I shouldn’t. I think Chris and Allison are both acting childish and in the end, the kid is who will suffer the most from their actions. Children don’t want to see their parents hate each other. This little girl will grow up and be screwed up. Grown people need to get it together.

  5. This is why I can’t stand Bosh this sounds like BS and he is trying to get out of paying more child support. He disgust me but his wife Adrienne always over dressed to impress like a million bucks and the gold digger she is. Only thing I can say is if his BM is doing what he says she better get over being bitter because she going to end up just like Siovaughn losing her kids. And I have a feeling Adrienne going to take him for all he has in the end Ha!!!!

    1. Is it an impossibility that Chris Bosh simply wants to be more of a part if the life of his child and the mother of his child is not allowing that to happen? There is DOCUMENTED proof that the mother of his child has not been the most responsible person on the planet.

  6. What? This is so stupid. I’m so over these athletes and their baby mama drama. People need to start wearing condoms and using birth control.

    1. I AGREE. Quick, fast and in a hurry. Unfortunately S*x & Children are being used as a meal ticket or a free ride, especially females who date athletes and entertainers. Bosh is shady… God don’t like ugly.

  7. Gay Chris Bosh and his Oompa Loompa wife are back at it I see. Adrienne will do whatever it takes to make sure she can keep dressing tacky and faking like she has class.

    1. How do you know that his actions are simply to not pay child support? Do you know what is documented that Chris Bosh does for his daughter? You ladies are talking about karma…. well for the mother ‘this’ is karma.

      Did you all forget this:

      (Link removed)

      This was in 2011… what about this:

      (Link removed)

      This was in 2012.

      Let’s look at the things that Chris Bosh does ON TOP OF the $2,600.00 a month in ‘child support shall we:

      1. He handles all medical expenses.
      2. He handles all insurance (Medical and Dental and NOT court ordered)
      3. He has created and contributes to the child’s college fund.
      4. He pays for all extra curricular activities.
      5. He has created and funds the child’s trust fund.
      6. He pays for all preschool expenses (of the mother’s choice no less)
      7. He pays for all transportation to and from the visits that he is allowed.

      So what is Allison paying for? What is there left? Rent (she spent the lump sum that Bosh provided initially for housing to take vacations), Utilities and Food… I’m quite certain that $2,600.00 can cover food and utilities for both of them per month.

      Also… She failed to mention the $250k Bosh gave her of his own free will (the lump sum I was referring to earlier).

  8. So Bosh wants his old heaux (who smashed Lil Wayne) to raise his DAUGHTER. I’m sure she’ll teach her how to properly gold dig.

  9. Another getting ready to lose her child because athletes are paying off the judges. I wouldn’t want Adrienne raising my child.

    1. Do you have any evidence that Chris Bosh has been paying off judges? Please share this evidence. I’m certain that the courts would greatly appreciate you bringing to light such a miscarriage of justice. Thank you.

  10. I hate when parents pull this stupid mess. Kids need BOTH of their parents. In fact, they want both of their parents. Chris and Allison need to bury the hatchet and co-parent like adults! Sheesh.

  11. So she’s an unfit mom because she wants more in child support? Wow. F-k Chris Bosh and dumb azz fans.

  12. He won’t get it. He has to have proof that Allison is unfit. And by looks of the court documents, he doesn’t have any. I think he’s just trying to buy time for the child support case coming back up.

    1. In the words of Mr. Bosh’s attorney:

      Allow me to be abundantly clear – If Ms. Mathis believes that she will force Mr. Bosh’s hand by continuing to engage in a media campaign, she is indeed misguided. Instead, with each false statement (and willful omission) Ms. Mathis makes to the media, she makes it less and less likely that Mr. Bosh will, at any time, afford her assistance that he isn’t legally obligated to provide.

      Mr. Bosh will not extend his hand while Ms. Mathis clenches her fist. Please understand that Mr. Bosh has a very healthy sense of his responsibility to Trinity. However just as Allison Mathis has no responsibility whatsoever to take care of Christopher Bosh, Christopher Bosh has no responsibility to take care of Allison Mathis.

      Mr. Bosh works tirelessly at his career as an NBA Player in order to provide financial stability for he and his children (including Trinity). We suggest that Ms. Mathis begin to work tirelessly at a career of her choosing in order to assist, in some way, in providing financial stability for Trinity.

      Ms. Mathis is not Mr. Bosh’s wife and, unlike Trinity, will not benefit from the fruits of his labor.

  13. These women better take note. What these famous men are doing now is paying off judges for full custody. They will do whatever it takes to avoid paying child support. What I won’t do is support these clowns. I can’t imagine being a mom and someone taking my baby away just because they have the fame to do it. Chris, his wife, and his fans who support this better hope that nasty bout of karma coming their way decides to skip them.

    1. That’s the thing… it’s not YOUR baby. The baby was created by BOTH parents. lol! I sincerely hope that he gets full custody of their child because by all accounts it seems that he’s the best person suited to have her. I’m certain that he will allow the mother to have visitation unlike she behaved toward him.

      1. What exactly is a ‘Real Man’? I’m interested in hearing your definition of the term.

  14. Lil Wayne, come get your old jumpoff…this bish is putting together plans to take kids from their moms.

  15. This is so stupid to me. I hope the judge throws out his paperwork and tells both of them to get over themselves. Increase the child support slightly and make sure Chris is seeing his child on a continuous basis. Problem solved.

    1. Shayla, you actually have sense. The course of action that you’ve described would be the best for all parties. HOWEVER the rest of the individuals involved here want to make sure that this man is paying 30K a month in CS as well as being a 4 day a month parent. They don’t care one whit about the child. They simply want to see the man be punished.

    1. I think it’s a beautiful thing. Children need their fathers as well. Fathers matter too.

  16. Visitation? LOL. Chris is a dirty bastard. He better watch that beard of his. She will be divorcing him in a few years and she’ll take all that money with her. That was the whole plan. She’ll pull an Allison but will actually get away with it because she’s not a black woman. And that’s the thing with Adrienne. She doesn’t want Allison to pull the same move she plans to pull before she does. But black athletes don’t have a problem with non black women taking their money, just the black ones.

    1. Fathers get visitation ALL THE TIME. Is there something so wrong with visitation that it’s a bad things for mothers and not fathers? Please elaborate on your position. Also… Exactly what race/nationality is Adrienne Williams?

  17. I don’t have a problem with a man stepping up and wanting to be the primary parent of his kids. But I just don’t think it should be done out of spite and as a way to get out of paying child support. That’s actually a cowardly move in my book.

    1. How do you know that it’s being done out of spite? Hmmmm? Do you know the mother’s history here?

      1. @Pam: How do you know that it’s being done out of spite? Hmmmm? Do you know the mother’s history here?

  18. There is no proof that Allison is a bad mother. This is about not paying child support anymore. But hey, this is the new thing these famous men are pulling in court.

    1. Lets be honest here, Allison created this situation by even letting it get to a point where she could lose custody. Feel free to correct me where I’m wrong:

      -She has already unwisely spent that initial lump sum of $$ Bosh gave her.
      -Allison refused Bosh’s offer to help her further her education.
      -She hasn’t found employment in how many years? Honestly was she actually looking?
      -Her house is on the verge of foreclosure.

      Didn’t Allison take 13+ vacations in under a year? Who’s funding that?
      Doesn’t she have 3+ able bodied adults living under her roof? Who’s funding that?

      There are extenuating circumstances here.

      1. I don’t know what I was doing to miss this long debate. But I must know one thing here — what did Allison spend that lump sum of $250,000 on? I heard from her camp that she is now unemployed and I am suspecting she used that money to buy a house that she may be underwater on.

        Either way, I would hope Chris and Allison could reach a settlement and get this mess out of the public eye.

        1. Not for nothing… The issue is simple to resolve. $2,600.00 a month is not enough in my opinion. I get that. The issue is the adversarial Child Support system. I’m almost positive that if they were asking for $7,000.00 to $10,000.00 a month ($10,000.00 is a nice round figure) it would not be as much of an issue but $30,000.00 is entirely too much to raise any child. The position he is being placed in is either pay $2,600.00 or $30,000.00. What would either of you do if faced with that option?

          Exactly… you’d fight for $2,600 too because while you’re making 16M per annum today, you only have another 7 or so years in the NBA then those amounts disappear. $30,000.00 a month is 360K a year. That’s a lot of money for a child.

          It should DEFINITELY be increased but because the increase is so drastic it forces a man who by all accounts is a decent guy overall to be an arse because the alternative is to pay an amount that while currently manageable will be unwieldy in 10 years. Neither Chris nor his ex are at fault, it’s the adversarial Child Support system that pits mothers and fathers against one another at the expense of the child.

          It would be beautiful if they could both behave with maturity and respect and come to a mutual understanding.

  19. Been following this whole thing for a while now. So much has happened, but I know how it is to go up against a rich athlete over your kids. I hope everything works out for Allison! Much love sweetheart, keep your head up!

  20. Oh wow! I’m definitely praying for Allison!!! She’s a friend of a friend. Very sweet girl & she’s been going through it. I know the things Bosh put her through. Praying for her!

  21. You know… this is the wrong site for healthy debate it seems. The regular posters here simply don’t have the energy or the effort or the desire to defend their positions. It’s like you guys simply say things, true or not, logical or not. Sensical or not, and let it stand as fact. lol! What’s up with that?

  22. Awwwwww… Moderators PRETTY PLEASE… you removed my Tour De Force argument. Take the TMZ links out as I am assuming that’s the reason that it was removed. PLEASE… PRETTY PLEASE… with SUGAR ON TOP!

    1. I absolutely LOVE this site. Just wanted to say that out loud. Thank you moderators. I’d kiss you if I could. Assuming you’re women of course.

      Disclaimer: In no way does the above statement constitute anything other than appreciation to the moderators for acts that were above and beyond the call of duty. 🙂

  23. Hopefully these two will be able to work it out. I hate to see people fight like this just because the relationship didn’t work out.

  24. I hope that Chris Bosh gets his mind right very soon. Not too long ago he was paying medical expenses to impregnate Allison Mathis… he wanted this child…. but as soon as he found a piece of arm candy that was contrary to what he had, he bounced! Im not sure if the surces are correct but I believe them as they have pictures… Adrienne plannd to get with Chris Bosh based on reports on Lipstick Alley, she wanted his salary, contract, dating info and all! Allison was still pregnant or recently gave birth to Trinity when Adrienne and Chris got together…. Adrienne is vapid, I have read articles when she was trying to model where she was quoted as saying her goals is to be famous and that people always ask if she is Venezuelan because she is so beautiful and Venezuelans are the most beautiful people, and that was a direct quote. Everyday is a photoshoot. It bothers me that Chris Bosh does not want to increase his child support to possibly place his child in private school, dance class, music class, foreign language courses, etc, but Adrienne can photgraph herself in thousand dollar costume jewelry, thousand dollar purses, thousand dollar shoes, thousand dollar clothes… No he should not pay for Allison’s lifestlye, but Trinity should be able have the same luxuries as her FATHER!!! You can not provide more for your wife than your child, who was here first…When I saw the pictures of Adrienne that surfaced after Lil’ Wayne called her out, I already knew… All of these rappers came out the wood work with stories and pictures of Adrienne about who she really is… its sad. Allison needs to stop talking to the media and hire a private investigator to get history on both Arienne and Chris and with the information she can use it to mediate an agreement. I always see pictures, thanks to Adrienne of Trinity with her dad and that baby loves that man, its in her eyes, they sparkle when shes with him in the pictures I see. So I highly doubt Allison is speaking badly about him to her to pin her against her dad. They all need to grow up, and Chris needs to man up, he has another child on the way and he needs to send the message that Trinity will have everything she could ever dream of as long as he can afford it, so that some punk cant come along and show her differentky when shes older. On another note, lol, if he really wanted primary custody, he should have applied when she was born not when he has to fight child support. This is crazy, Allison also should have seen that Chris was trifling when she was with him, and dipped out and not agreed to a child with him. Again this is crazy, and this poor baby will be hurt in the end. ADULTS get it together…. Sorry for my essay lol but this situation angers me, I work in the courts and I see this stuff all the time, on top of false allegations to win custody.

    1. I hope that Chris Bosh gets his mind right very soon.

      What leads you to believe that his mind isn’t ‘right’? In fact, define ‘right’. It seems to me that he knows exactly what he is doing and the actions of his child’s mother are going a long way in assisting him.

      Not too long ago he was paying medical expenses to impregnate Allison Mathis… he wanted this child….

      This is true. They BOTH wanted this child. They lived together for 2 years when he played in Toronto.

      but as soon as he found a piece of arm candy that was contrary to what he had, he bounced!

      This is pure speculation and conjecture. The only individuals who know what happened between them are Chris and Allison.

      I’m not sure if the sources are correct but I believe them as they have pictures… Adrienne planned to get with Chris Bosh based on reports on Lipstick Alley, she wanted his salary, contract, dating info and all!

      Please elaborate on what this information has to do with the child support/custody case? This seems like extraneous information not germane to the topic.

      Allison was still pregnant or recently gave birth to Trinity when Adrienne and Chris got together….

      Again… Please elaborate on what this information has to do with the child support/custody case? This seems like extraneous information not germane to the topic.

      Adrienne is vapid, I have read articles when she was trying to model where she was quoted as saying her goals is to be famous and that people always ask if she is Venezuelan because she is so beautiful and Venezuelans are the most beautiful people, and that was a direct quote. Everyday is a photo-shoot.

      Yet again… Please elaborate on what this information has to do with the child support/custody case? This seems like extraneous information not germane to the topic.

      It bothers me that Chris Bosh does not want to increase his child support to possibly place his child in private school, dance class, music class, foreign language courses, etc,

      Let’s look at the things that Chris Bosh does ON TOP OF the $2,600.00 a month in ‘child support
      shall we:
      1. He handles all medical expenses.
      2. He handles all insurance (Medical and Dental and NOT court ordered)
      3. He has created and contributes to the child’s college fund.
      4. He pays for all extra curricular activities.
      5. He has created and funds the child’s trust fund.
      6. He pays for all preschool expenses (of the mother’s choice no less)
      7. He pays for all transportation to and from the visits that he is allowed.

      So what is Allison paying for? What is there left? Rent (she spent the lump sum that Bosh provided initially for housing to take vacations), Utilities and Food… I’m quite certain that $2,600.00 can cover food and utilities for both of them per month.

      but Adrienne can photograph herself in thousand dollar costume jewelry, thousand dollar purses, thousand dollar shoes, thousand dollar clothes…

      The above has rendered this position void. What this woman does or doesn’t do doesn’t have any bearing on the case at hand.

      No he should not pay for Allison’s lifestyle, but Trinity should be able have the same luxuries as her FATHER!!!

      I agree… this is why it is best that the child LIVE with the person who has the lifestyle that you’re advocating for the child IF luxuries are the objective here (this seems to be what you’re advocating).

      You cannot provide more for your wife than your child, who was here first…

      Huh? Is that a law? Where is this codified?

      When I saw the pictures of Adrienne that surfaced after Lil’ Wayne called her out, I already knew… All of these rappers came out the wood work with stories and pictures of Adrienne about who she really is… it’s sad.

      Please elaborate on what this information has to do with the child support/custody case? This seems like extraneous information not germane to the topic.

      Allison needs to stop talking to the media and hire a private investigator to get history on both Adrienne and Chris and with the information she can use it to mediate an agreement.

      Always pretty solid advice. However based on the amount of investigation that has happened thus far I seriously doubt that there is more information to be had.

      I always see pictures, thanks to Adrienne of Trinity with her dad and that baby loves that man, it’s in her eyes, they sparkle when she’s with him in the pictures I see. So I highly doubt Allison is speaking badly about him to her to pin her against her dad.

      Operative words… Highly Doubt.

      They all need to grow up, and Chris needs to man up,

      Groan. lol! Really? Man Up? smh…

      he has another child on the way and he needs to send the message that Trinity will have everything she could ever dream of as long as he can afford it,

      No, no, no, no… that’s the WRONG message. That’s part of the issue now. The child needs the message that mommy and daddy love her and will take care of her needs and will teach her to the best of their abilities to be a productive member of society. That and the fact that she has worth and value and self-respect are the important lessons. Anything else is superfluous.

      so that some punk can’t come along and show her differently when she’s older.

      If they impart the above message no ‘punk’ will be able to dislodge that.

      On another note, lol, if he really wanted primary custody, he should have applied when she was born not
      when he has to fight child support.

      What? Really? Where is this written? That’s a fallacious argument all around in my opinion. If the mother wanted more money in child support she should have applied for the amount that she wanted when the child was born… or wait… things change. Indeed. Things do change… on both sides of the equation.

      This is crazy, Allison also should have seen that Chris was trifling when she was with him, and dipped out and not agreed to a child with him.

      Maybe… this is probably the most logical point I’ve heard.

      Again this is crazy, and this poor baby will be hurt in the end.

      The child will be just fine.

      ADULTS get it together…. Sorry for my essay lol but this situation angers me, I work in the courts and I see this stuff all the time, on top of false allegations to win custody.

      I pray that you see the venom and vitriol on the other side of the coin as well.

      1. Adrienne, you’re pregnant. Stop writing on the blogs and sending people after Allison you evil wench.

        1. Tasha;

          I apologize for being as vociferous as I’ve been in this particular debate. I understand that the mother of their child is close to you and at the end of the day I want win-win resolutions for all parties. I mean you nor anyone else any harm. While our opinions may differ, I ultimately want what’s best for everyone. That road may be painful but I believe that it can be traversed with patience, faith and maturity and that ultimately it will be worth it. I wish you and your friend well.

          Uncontainable Spirit

  25. I’m not one to believe everything the media reports, nor what lawyers say. The only people who know the truth are Chris and Allison. And honestly, who really cares who is right and who is wrong here? That little girl loves both of her parents. Look at her sweet little face. They need to drop these court battles, and agree to terms that will be fair to the both of them. Kids hate to see their parents fight. My mom’s parents divorced when she was grown and she’s still not over it. Neither are her siblings. The fights stick with your kids. That little girl deserves more. Good luck to them all.

    1. You, IJS, are a breath of fresh air. I personally agree. I believe that they should each stop all court proceedings WITH PREJUDICE (this means that they cannot go back to court again over this issue) and that Chris Bosh should have joint custody of his daughter and that he should pay child support in the amount of 10K per month PLUS handle all of the expenses that he’s currently handling. After he retires from the NBA the amount for child support should drop to 7K a month.

      I want a win win situation for ALL parties including the child. So many people here only want the father to pay. That’s not fair to the mother, the father or the child. Thank you for coming into the discussion with an open mind and with compassion in your heart.

  26. Before you decide to have a child with someone you have to address how they will be raised and what will happen if you choose to go separate ways. One thing that I don’t like that I heard is that Chris Bosh left Allison when she was pregnant. I think that is being a coward because pregnant women already go through enough carrying a life. Unless his life was in danger he should have stayed at least 6 months after she had the baby. But on to the issue at hand; If Allison is an unfit mother and Chris has proof I don’t see anything wrong with going for primary custody better safe than sorry. If and that is a big if Allison is down talking Chris around their child or denying him visiting rights that is not right. In my opinion though if Allison is not an unfit mother Chris shouldn’t be going for primary custody out of spite because with his schedule as a NBA player he is on the road a lot and wouldn’t be able to spend a lot of quality time wit her. I think the reason that Allison is getting that amount is because she was never married to Chris. I think with the money that Chris is making that it could be increased. If he is indeed paying for medical, dental, and extracurricular activities for his daughter I commend him. The best thing to do is never have a baby without a ring. I never see a reason why a child should be taken away his or her mother unless they are an unfit parent and neglecting and abusing the child. There have been several celebrity cases in the past couple of years where the father was rewarded primary custody of their child and in most cases the man was the breadwinner. Steve Harvey, D. Wayde, and Usher all have primary custody of their children they have with their ex-wives. I still can’t fathom how Usher got primary custody of his two children with his ex-wife Tameka.

  27. My thing is, depending on why she’s asking for increased child support, I’d want custody of my child too. There comes an issue of being used here, and even for men, there’s only so much they can take. I understand he’s a celebrity, but beyond all that, he’s human, and I’m sure he has limits. I agree that co-parenting is very much the better solution. However, when that’s unrealistic, or rather, impossible at the moment, then what? I just don’t think it’s fair to assume he’s doing this out of spite, or even that he’s going to pay the judge off. Yes, children belong with their mothers. But they also belong with their fathers. And just as there are fathers out here that don’t live up to the role of being a parent, there are mothers that fit that bill just as well. No good results can come from bad intentions, and that is applicable to them both. For the child’s sake, I hope this situation gets resolved quickly and respectfully.

    1. I think I’m about to have a heart attack. Someone else here with objectivity? Wow! Thank you for your fair minded and balanced approach to this issue.

      1. Shut up Adrienne Bosh. You have been busted. I knew it was something too familiar about your font! Don’t you get tired of writing on blogs?

        And how are you fair minded and balanced? Oh that’s right. You’re not. You’re a selfish groupie who lucked up with a gay athlete. What? You scared someone will take away your funds for your in house photographer?

        Leave Allison alone and stop spreading lies! You have picked on the wrong woman! Keep on writing on here you trifling poor excuse of a woman!
