Allison Mathis Files For Bankruptcy; Says Bosh, Worth $109 Million, Only Pays $2K A Month In Child Support
I don’t know if you remember, but in 2012, the mother of Chris Bosh’s daughter Trinity, Allison Mathis, was fighting him on a couple of different issues. For one, she wanted a spot on Basketball Wives in 2012, but he blocked that attempt. Because of his intrusion, she claimed that she lost her spot on the show, along with the income she would have brought in for her daughter, and ended up having to petition for food stamps:
“I was offered a job on ‘Basketball Wives’ and I filmed a couple episodes and it leaked that I landed the job and Chris of course did not want me to go on it so he sued me to keep me from going on it. I would have made a hell of a lot of money than with other job offers that I’ve had.”
Secondly, they’ve been fighting over custody of their daughter, and with that, financial support for Trinity AND Allison. As of the middle of last year, he was battling for full custody, and there were allegations that he lied about his residency to keep from having to pay up hefty child support in Florida. Mathis felt that he should help her more with financial support since he’s more than able to.
“I’m not the only one and I don’t expect people to just to feel sorry for me and have pity on me, but I do think that the father of my child, given that he is able to help his child out, should be willing to.”
But he’s not helping Mathis, and since she hasn’t been able to receive more financial assistance for herself, Mathis has had to file for bankruptcy according to Radar Online. Mathis claims to be a part-time research assistant as far as employment, and that brings in a monthly income of $3,985. On top of that she has $320,446 in assets. However, after paying monthly expenses of $1,615, she’s not left with much. Mathis claims to only have $1,250 in her checking account and owes a whopping $286,946 to creditors. According to Radar she also has the following:
$18,000 in her savings account, furniture and jewelry worth $3,700, and a 2007 BMW worth about $15,000 and owes $284,000 on her Windemere, Florida home.
She gets $500 a month from her family to help with her income, and get this, only $2,685 in child support from Bosh, who during this NBA season stands to make $19.07 million from a six-year contract that guarantees him $109 million.
