Chad Johnson’s baby mama Andrea Pearson is still battling with the former athlete over child support. Chad Johnson is still enduring the after effects of his failed marriage to “Basketball Wives” star Evelyn Lozada, and as a result of things ending due to him head-butting her; the former NFL star is finding out it’s pretty hard to bounce back when you have a violent past. Chad maintains that he is still working on making sure his incident with Evelyn never happens again and even cites he’s never really gotten in trouble before. But none of that has managed to stop his money from going low. While he’s still hoping another team will give him a chance to play in the NFL again, it’s not looking so good for the former wide receiver. Despite his money being on the decline, his baby mama is still demanding the court requires him to pay more in child support. Chad recently asked the court to lower the payments and his baby mama is not having it. TMZ reports:
Andrea Pearson filed legal docs in FL court — firing back a Chad’s request to reduce his $5,240 / month child support bill. Chad claims he can’t afford it anymore, after getting fired from the NFL and losing his lucrative endorsement deals … circumstances he says that were out of his control.
But Andrea argues in docs … she shouldn’t be punished for Chad’s screw ups, clearly stating that his money problems ARE his fault, explaining, “he sabotaged his own earning ability through his conduct and criminal behavior.”
Translation: The head-butting, domestic violence arrest (the catalyst for his $$$ woes) was Chad’s doing … and Andrea doesn’t want her support cash to be collateral damage.
The site goes on to say Andrea Pearson has asked the court to toss out Chad’s request.
