"Bosh family pf"

Chris with wife Adrienne and daughter Trinity (Johnny Louis/WENN)

“Chris Bosh, you just won another NBA championship! What are you going to do now?

“I’m going back to court to fight with my daughter’s mother!”

Yes, the ongoing battle between Bosh and Allison Mathis continues to roll on. According to TMZ, the Miami Heat forward has filed papers for primary physical custody of their daughter, Trinity.

Seriously, we just told you on Friday that she was filing papers saying he lied under oath about his residency.

The former couple has been fighting over child support, custody and anything else you can think of since Mathis was six months pregnant.

In his documents, Bosh says Mathis has been doing everything in her power to alienate him from Trinity, including blocking contact, not allowing her to travel with his family and smearing his name to their daughter.

Last year, Mathis did an interview where she stated Bosh was not a good provider and that she faced foreclosure on her home and was going to have to get on welfare because his $2,600 a month child support payments weren’t good enough. Bosh’s team fired back with documentation stating that not only does he pay child support and gives as much physical and emotional attention to Trinity as he can under the circumstances, but he also pays for schooling, extracurricular activities, medical expenses and more. They also provided proof that he gave her $250,000 in 2010.

Bosh, who married his wife Adrienne in 2011, also has a son and another baby on the way.

Mathis and her team have filed their own documents stating that Bosh’s claims are untrue.

This ongoing fight between Chris and Allison is really ridiculous and in the end, Trinity is the one who is really losing. Hopefully, they can one day find a resolution.

    For him and for her this is about support payments. He doesn’t want to cough up that 30k homegirl is hauling his azz back to court for.

  • hi-liter

    Chile, I bet a dime to a dollor that’s Adrienne Bosh’s mess, trying to take that child so she can keep all of Chris’s money to herself and her family. He looks like a simp.

    • MLS2698

      I hate to blame the wife. But I want to know how this turns out in a couple of years. Bosh’s wife seems like she is a baby factory right now, and she just looks suspect to me. I hope this guy isn’t being played then years later finds out he married a groupie who wanted to crank out babies so she could cash in later.

      • For women’s right

        Hope Allison wins, take care of your daughter and put the rest of the money in a college fund. Good luck to you.

      • http://www.yourtango.com/users/cheekee-baby cheekee baby

        His wife is an industry jump-off. She’s got a rep taller than Chris’ lanky a**. She’s “known” pretty well in that circle.

    • Monique McLaughlin

      Y’all should hear about what a young lady, by the name of Madonna Elder, has to say about her experience with Mrs. Bosh. This would not be surprising.

  • juanita

    that girl looks so much like him. an you cant even tell she is half white she looks as dark as her father is.

    • Bishop

      You sound crazy both her parents are black…wow. Reading comprehension is not one of your strong points.

    • MLS2698

      Who is half-white, his daughter’s mother?

  • Rochelle

    A lot of you guys saying that $2500 a month is enough…..you are crazy! Yeah it is enough if you are Keisha working as a secretary (if Keisha even gets that much) but Bosh is a sports superstar that can afford way more than 2g’s a month to support his child. Child support is awarded on THE AMOUNT OF MONEY THAT IS COMING IN FROM THE NON CUSTODIAL PARENT. It doesn’t mater if it is “enough.” If the man (in this case) gets an increase in salary the custodial parent gets an increase in support. I think that is why the former is taking him to court for more support. It just makes sense. A lot of you don’t know what you are talking about, or your just jealous. This woman should get as much support as possible. I hope she gets the best lawyers to raise that child support. None of you would say “no I have enough” to more support if your ex was making a sh—t load more income. None.

    • MLS2698

      In my state you can ask for a raise in child support every three years. And seriously, she doesn’t need $30,000 a month, but $2,600 seems pretty low when Bosh is a superstar who just won a championship ( he gon’ get a raise). Women who have never received child support or alimony will never agree to these facts, but if their ex was making real money they wouldn’t want ” keisha ” type of pay, either.

      • http://www.yourtango.com/users/cheekee-baby cheekee baby

        Amen! Frankly I think Chris’s wife is the one pushing this agenda. She sure in the hell don’t want 30K walking out of her household each month.

        • Lisa

          I wouldn’t either!

  • kang trill ♚

    me looking from the outside on in , its seems his daughters mother wants more child support . $2500 ? thats a lot of money . and the mother says its because she wants her daughter to live the same lifestyle as chris . i call bs on that one . she wont have the fancy cars and clothes , but if the money was actually going to her daughter , then she would be well taken care of . my opinion :)

  • Guest360

    Im sorry but $2500 is more than enough support for a child. Not to mention his paying for her schooling and extra curriculars. If she can’t make that work then maybe he does need to get custody over her. If she wants her daughter to have the same financial benefits as her siblings then the logical step is to let her live with her dad. Money is a horrible thing to focus your efforts on and for the life of me I don’t know why some women do it. It only hurts you and your child in the end.

    • Drew

      Another person! Where the heck have you been?!?!

  • Nia

    I think he’s an azzzhole. I also think the mother is an azzzhole. They need to stop being azzzholes and focus on coparenting the child. He should pay child support just like all the rest of people who make what he makes and stop being petty. She should stop acting like she is living a deprived life off because he doesn’t pay $30,000 a month. Good parents are not all in the media arguing over money.

  • Trisha_B

    Everybody kept saying in the last post that she needs to have the same lifestyle as her dad & brother, well she’ll get it 24/7 now. If Allyson is struggling, why not have Trinity stay w/ daddy until you get back on your feet? She says she wants her daughter to live like Chris reason she wants more money, but that also means the money will allow Allyson & whoever she lives w/ have a lifestyle like Chris. All from child support payments. Thats not fair. Once she gets on her feet, have a stable job & housing then Trinity could go back w/ her & they share equal time w/ the kid.

  • Kaila P

    2600 is a looooooot of money to support a normal child, no she does not need a 500 dollar barbie play range rover, no she does not have to go to the mosttttt expensive school in the state. focus on the child’s needs and not on getting lots and lots of money. Her other also seems very bitter about the relatiosnhip and is trying to hurt him, I never get why women who have a man willing to support the child act so crazy,

  • Dee

    He needs to leave his daughter with her mother.

    • Pivyque

      Why? If she can’t afford to support her and the child, why shouldn’t he have custody until she is able to get back on her feet or even keep custody and let her visit her mother the way she visits him now? At least while she lives with him, she will have siblings to play with, a (hopefully healthy) two parent home and the same luxuries as the children with his wife. He will be taking care of his daughter and all of her needs. Isn’t that what she wants?

      • http://www.yourtango.com/users/cheekee-baby cheekee baby

        His wife would be raising her. He’s gone several months out of the year. No court is going for that without just cause. The court places a lot of weight on keeping the child with their biological parents. He should certainly get more time with her during the off season.

        • Pivyque

          I don’t see the problem with that. My brother has a child from a previous relationship that he has custody of and his wife raises him like her own. His mother can see him whenever she wants.

          • Pivyque

            I’m not sure why someone would thumbs down my post. When a couple is married, they should accept any children from previous relationships as their own. Would you prefer my sister in law treat my nephew differently from the her own children? That’s ridiculous, especially since the female is usually the primary caretaker, regardless of the man’s job.

            • http://www.yourtango.com/users/cheekee-baby cheekee baby

              Your sister in law treating your nephew “the same” has nothing to do with your nephew being raised by his actual mother when his father is unavailable. That’s the point. Should your brother and his current wife get divorced I can guarantee you she won’t be paying him child support for your nephew. They won’t be negotiating visitation and she won’t be chipping in on half his college tuition, medical, car etc.

              She will return to being an unrelated person who was in his life and he will still need his mother.

              • Pivyque

                My point is that there is nothing wrong with the step mom assisting in raising the child if the father has custody. You made it seem like it is such a terrible thing for his wife to be taking care of his child while he is working. There is nothing wrong with that as long as she is well taken care of.

                • http://www.yourtango.com/users/cheekee-baby cheekee baby

                  She can’t be better taken care of than by the woman who carried and birthed and raised her since she took her first breath. It simply doesn’t make any sense to give him full custody and then have him gone for 1/2 the year. She should be with her mother and when her dad is off with her father and his family. That just makes sense.

                  Children need stability more than anything. 3 years down the road we don’t know whether Chris will still be married to his current wife. Stats say there’s less than a 50% chance that he will. We do know no matter what that child has one mother and one father. She ought to be in their care whenever possible.

                  • Pivyque

                    Well, I don’t know either woman, so I can’t say whether or not his wife can take care of the child better than her mother. I’ve seen biological mothers be horrible to their kids, so I am not going to automatically assume a child is better off with its biological mother than with the step mother. At any rate, I get your point. Hopefully, they can work something out.

          • http://www.yourtango.com/users/cheekee-baby cheekee baby

            No sane court is going to take a child from their biological mother to be raised by her step-mom. Not unless mommy is a drug user and presents a danger.

            I know it sounds crazy but our court system for some weird reason believes the best interest of the child whenever possible is to have them in the care of their biological parents . Not when daddy wants to save some scratch.

            • Pivyque

              It doesn’t sound crazy. My entire basis for saying that is because I read that she doesn’t have a job and can’t financially support herself and a child. If that is the case, the child should be with the biological parent that CAN support them.

              • http://www.yourtango.com/users/cheekee-baby cheekee baby

                Yes biological parent. And when that parent is working the child ought to be with the other biological parent.

                • Pivyque

                  I think you missed my point. lol If she cannot support herself and a child, why should she have custody at this time? Because he is working? That’s not a valid reason. He is working so that he can take care of his family. He should not be able to have custody of his child just because he is out working in order to pay the bills.

                • Pivyque

    • anonymouse

      exactly, how is he gonna be a full-time parent when he’s on the road for most of the year??

      • Pivyque

        You can be a full time parent no matter where you are. My father was deployed quite a few times and during each deployment he was still a full time parent. Just because someone is home all the time, doesn’t make them any more of a parent than someone that has a job to do that keeps them away from home.

        • anonymouse

          good for you. i just don’t think that a person whose job keeps them away from home for over half of the year should take primary custody away from the person that the child has been with since birth.If he wants joint custody, that’s fine and more than reasonable but to take the child away from her permanent residence is wrong.

          • Pivyque

            Joint custody is more reasonable, but $2,500 a month is also reasonable, especially when he is covering all other outside experiences. If she can’t take care of a child with that, maybe he should get custody. No need to keep dragging each other to court.

            • anonymouse

              I think it’s more about him trying to be slick and claiming Texas residency so that he doesn’t have to pay according to his income. 2500 is not that much money and if he doesn’t want to cough up the support that equivalent to his 18 million a yr salary, maybe he should just get a regular job.

              • Pivyque

                Maybe he should get a regular job, or he could just get custody…

  • Ms_Sunshine9898

    and he should too. People forget it takes two to make a baby and mothers aren’t the end all be all. If everything above is true, then he should have custody since the mother isn’t in the financial position to raise her child. . . .

    • Coco black

      Are you crazy!!! A child needs it Mother. I’m sure she had enough to feed, clothe and love her child…she prob can’t afford a new Merc or regular LV bags. Just cos the patents are crazy, doesn’t mean a child has to be up rooted.

      • Pivyque

        This child also needs her father. Just because he has custody does not mean that she will never see her mother.

        • inessa

          you don’t understand! You can’t understand! To some of these women, a good father is the one who is there to pick the baby up week ends so that she can enjoy herself and have “rest” , keep a low profile in decisions surrounding her education and of course GIVE THAT MONEY! If he dares want custody then he has to just want to avoid child support or he’s spiteful.

          • Drew

            Stop it. You’re coming off as unequivocally ridiculous.

      • Guest360

        A child also needs her father and a stable home. There is no law or child psychologist out there that states a child can ONLY live with their mother in order to have a stable home.

      • Ms_Sunshine9898

        If that’s the case, then maybe all fathers good and bad should give up paternal rights to their children since some mothers feel they are the only ones capable of raising their children. Women scream and holler for child support while in the same breath deny their child access or custody to their fathers because the fathers don’t want to support a baby mama’s life style. You just proved my point where fathers essentially have no rights to their children other than child support. We holler and scream we want men to stick by our families and then tell them I can do bad all by myself when it comes to the kids *confused*
