I hate to post this story especially after saluting NBA father’s but apparently the mother of Chris Bosh’s first child is now applying for food stamps. Â Read more after the jump.
In her first interview about the legal battle that Bosh and former live-in galpalÂ Allison Matthishave been waging in three states, Matthisâ€™ lawyer tells me Orlando resident Matthis was laid off from her gig as a secretary in a construction company and this week applied for federal foodÂ assistance.
Matthis is alsoÂ expecting to see her home go into foreclosure because the child support Bosh is paying doesnâ€™t coverÂ her mortgage!
Things, however, have changed since Matthis lost her job.
Believe it or not, says Carey, Bosh pays her a mere $2,600-a-month in child support!
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 shouldnâ€™t be allowed to take a three-year-old to London for three weeks.
â€œMy client just lost her job and applied for food stamps for her and Mr. Boshâ€™s daughter. Sheâ€™s about toÂ be foreclosed on, he wonâ€™t help her and all he wants to do is go to London with his daughter. Are kidding?â€
Two lawyers in Orlando who rep Bosh did not return calls and emails requesting comment.
I don’t think $30,000 is necessary to support a child it’s more so to support a lavish lifestyle but I do agree that $2,600 is way too low considering how much money Chris Bosh makes. Â I hope one day these two can settle all of this and think of their beautiful daughter.
