It only took four seasons, and probably an even longer time than we know, for Sheree Whitfield to finally go after her ex-husband, former NFL star Bob Whitfield, for child support money owed to her. Now, the former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” reality star is finally getting what’s due to her children because according to TMZ, Bob has just 21 days to pay her the $75,000 owed in overdue child support.
According to legal docs obtained by TMZ … Bob admits he failed to make 38 monthly child support payments of $2,142 to the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star … more than $81k.
Bob claimed he simply didn’t have the money — and had asked the court to lower his obligation … but that was denied.
Now, the two sides have struck a deal in which Bob has agreed to hand over $75k before Nov. 11 … or face the consequences in court.
In addition to the $75k, Bob has also agreed to pay $1,000 per month for the next 12 months — before reverting back to the original $2,142.
In TMZ’s snarky fashion, they added a little “fun fact” at the end of their report noting that back in 2000, Bob signed a six-year, approximately $30 million contract with the Atlanta Falcons. Read between the lines: there’s no reason he should be anywhere near broke as he claims 12 years later. Ah well, at least Sheree’s children will finally get the money they’re due and hopefully he’ll keep up with future payments. It also sounds like she made a good move, passing on Phaedra’s legal counsel and getting a new lawyer.
