It seems to be the year for sports stars to make their debut at New York Fashion Week. Serena Williams recently unveiled her HSN line on the influential runway, now basketball star Chris Boch just headed to NYFW to launch his new line of neckties.
Bosh teamed up with men’s accessories company Armstrong & Wilson to create Mr. Nice Tie. And it didn’t take long for the line to get a following; items from the line have been worn by Swaggy P, Rachel Johnson and Tyson Chandler’s wife, reports EURWeb. Yes, it seems women are sporting them as well.
According to the New York Post, Bosh came up with the idea for the line after losing a game.
“I was on the team plane after a game. I think we lost, and that’s when I get lost in my thoughts a little bit, so I was taking my mind off basketball and it just came to me — Mr. Nice Tie,” he said.
He added, “I wear ties almost every day anyway so it seemed like the logical choice.”
He also told Vibe, that his father was the inspiration behind the line. “Designs are always the result of and stem from inspirations and my father was one of them. He always dressed up and that’s the kind of mentality he passed down to me. When you’re a kid, you look up to what your parents do and it was something I saw a lot. I think I wanted to do ties because I had a difficult time tying them at first, but it was special when I learned how,” he said.
Bosh says he’s very hands on with the line, actually doing the designing, which took some getting accustomed to. “There was a learning curve, but I also had to play catchup,” he admitted, but added. “Learning to design was a beast but eventually we worked it out and things came out great.”
A nine-time All-Star, Bosh is looking for the line to be a success and add to the $19.1 million he collected from his contract last season year, plus another $255,000 for the Heat’s 2013 NBA title. He also racked in more than $2 million from memorabilia, appearances and endorsement deals with Nike and Phiten.
Well, apparently the custodial war over Chris Bosh’s 5-year-old daughter, Trinity, is still on. According to The Jasmine Brand, Chris’ ex, Allison Mathis, recently filed documents expressing that she wants little Trinity to take the stand at their ongoing child custody trial and testify on her behalf.
As you may recall, Chris and Allison have been back and forth to court battling over custodial rights and child support since Allison was six months pregnant with the kindergartner. In the past, Chris has accused Allison of doing everything in her power to alienate him from Trinity. At the same time, Allison has accused Chris of failing to be a good provider.
In my opinion, it’s a terrible idea to drag a 5-year-old into a courtroom to testify because her parents are unable to sort their issues out. It will be interesting to see whether or not a judge will grant Allison’s request. The ex-lovers have been at it for years now and Trinity is at an age where she is probably beginning to understand what’s going on between her parents. Hopefully, the two can reach some sort of amicable agreement soon for their daughter’s sake.

“Why Are They All Messing With Me?”: Chris Bosh Speaks On People Online Constantly Questioning His Sexuality
I’m sure you’ve seen one of those memes about Chris Bosh, where he’s caught looking quite crazy in a photo, and people use it say that he’s possibly gay. Unfortunately, they’re everywhere these days.
Like this one:
Or this one…
Yep, some folks can’t seem to give him a break. But what they didn’t realize is that Bosh has seen some of these memes and comments on the Internet, and while he can deal with a lot a criticism, he doesn’t take too kindly to individuals questioning his sexuality. This is what he said in an interview with ESPN:
“I read it all…For a while, they were questioning my sexuality. They still do. They were questioning my sexuality, questioning my game. And I’m like, ‘Why are they all messing with me?’ I didn’t do anything to anybody. I didn’t do nothing. I just came here to play basketball. And they’re like, ‘Oh, he’s not a real superstar.’ I never cared about being a superstar.”
When it comes to people calling him “Christina Bosh” and taking further jabs at his masculinity, Bosh had this to say:
“What am I supposed to do? You want me to have cornrows and tats on my neck and just punch somebody in the face when they score on me? It’s crazy. It’s impossible. I can’t do that and play. That’s never been who I am.
I’m just going to be myself. I shouldn’t have to apologize for that. If people don’t understand that, then they don’t understand it. I’m not going to try to be somebody I’m not.”
As we always knew, these individuals in the public eye, just like us regular folks, don’t like being attacked about trivial things, and people really do come very hard for Bosh online. But what he can always remind himself is that he’s playing for the NBA championship, again, making millions per year, while those same critics are watching him from behind the computer.
What do you think of what he had to say about people’s crude remarks and memes about his sexuality?
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.

The year 2013 has definitely been one for the babies. So many famous folks announced pregnancies or gave birth, and that includes Adrienne and Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat. Already the proud parents of baby Jackson (born in 2012), the couple welcomed their second child together into the world, baby girl Dylan Skye Bosh, on November 4. Now more than a month old, Adrienne had photos taken of her baby girl (just as she did with Jackson, and some were taken right after Dylan’s birth) and shared all the adorable pics on Instagram. A sleepy baby Dylan snapped photos with her brother, as well as cutie patootie sister Trinity, Chris Bosh’s daughter from his relationship with ex-girlfriend Allison Mathis. Check out all the cuteness overload below and share your thoughts.
Back in June we told you that Miami Heat star Chris Bosh and his wife, Adrienne, were expecting their second child together. The couple announced their upcoming birth with an adorable photo shoot starring their son Jack and Chris’ daughter from a previous relationship, Trinity. Last month Adrienne celebrated her pregnancy with Gabrielle Union and fellow basketball wives during a Parisian princess-themed baby shower. After much anticipation and tons of celebrating, Chris and Adrienne welcomed their new baby girl into the world yesterday. Adrienne made the birth announcement to fans via her Instagram page.
“What a perfect day to witness a miracle and be humbled by the beautiful process of Life and Love We appreciate all the well wishes, positivity, and words of support we have received! To my husband…you continue to bring life to my dreams and joy to my world. I Thank You for helping me welcome this perfect little angel #PrincessDylan #BoshFamily,” she captioned the above photograph.
Chris also took to Instagram with photos of his family’s latest addition.
“I’m a father again! I can’t believe it!!!” he exclaimed.
They seem like such a happy family! And check out that little smile Dylan serving up. She’s already camera ready, which is great, because y’all know her mama loves a good photo shoot.
Adrienne Bosh had a baby shower fit for a queen over the weekend — or make that a Parisian princess — which is the nickname the wife of Miami Heat baller Chris Bosh is giving their little expectant one.
In May, we found out in the most adorable way possible that Chris and Adrienne were going to have another baby. At the time, the couple’s son, Jackson was just 1 year old, but the little cutie pie and Chris’s daughter, Trinity, from a previous relationship broke, the news in a super cute photo shoot. A month later, the siblings spilled the beans that the new baby was going to be a girl and this past Saturday we got a sneak peek into how spoiled this little “Parisian Princess” is going to be.
From elaborate flower arrangements to Chanel placards and gold cake pops, it’s clear no expense was spared for the celebration which brought out a slew of celebs, like Adrienne’s “basketball wife” in crime, Gabrielle Union. Check out all the pics from the baby shower in the shots below and on the next couple of pages. What do you think?
Chris Bosh is seeking full custody of his daughter, Trinity, with his ex, Allison Mathis, who happens to be close friends with ex-“Basketball Wives” reality star, Royce Reed, who we already know is constantly in the headlines for “speaking her mind.” TMZ reported that Bosh is seeking custody because he feels Mathis is trying to alienate him from his child, keeping her from traveling with him and turning her against him, and upon hearing that news, Royce went off on Adrienne — on Twitter, mind you — on her alleged “exploitation” of little Trinity, airing out the Boshes dirty laundry and calling foul on the way they are going about trying to keep Trinity from her mother.
In her tweets to Adrienne Bosh, Royce said:
“if it was abt Trinity y do u exploit her all the time like she’s never w/her mother when she is most of the time”
“why not mention the reason Trinity can’t travel overseas is bcuz she has chronic ear infections, & her DOCTOR denied travel”
“allison has repeatedly asked 4 a sit down w/ur new parenting coordinator. y yall keep canceling? oh and ur residence is tx? Ok “
While it is reasonable to want to support your friends, it seems that Reed is being a bit too messy. Isn’t this a fight that the lawyers should be having? If she’s as grown as she has claimed to be throughout her time on Basketball Wives it seems that she should give the public arguments a rest and and speak face-to-face, if it’s even necessary.
We previously reported on Chris Bosh claiming Texas to be his permanent residence, despite the fact that he is employed by the Miami Heat with a permanent address in Miami. The reason is as clear as day: child support payment is much less for Texas residents.
The Boshes story IS fishy at best but do you think Royce had a right to publicly speak out on an issue that doesn’t directly involve her?
The Fight For Trinity Continues: Chris Bosh Files Legal Documents Against Ex For Physical Custody Of Daughter
“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.
After a very long child support legal battle between Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh and the mother of his 3-year-old child, Allison Mathis, it seems like Bosh might be facing even more legal trouble. The two-time playoffs champion soothed murmurs that he would be traded from Miami by stating that he loved Miami and wanted to retire there. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on who’s side you’re on) this statement directly conflicts with statements he made to be considered a Texas resident in earlier legal battles with his baby’s mother.
As we previously reported, Bosh claims Texas residency despite the fact that he both plays for the Miami Heat and lives there. Why? Simply put: Texas only requires $2,600 in monthly child support payment whereas Florida requires about $30,000.
We see what you did there Boshie, but it looks like it’ll all come back to bite you in the rear. According to the Miami Herald, Mathis’s attorney, Jane Carey, fully intends to use his declaration of Miami retirement against him:
“You can’t be a resident of Texas and retire in Florida.”
Carey plans to show and prove to the court that Bosh did, in fact, lie to lessen his support payments and she believes that the original lower court decision will be rescinded when it is all made clear.
I can’t imagine why Bosh wouldn’t want to supply the funds for his own child to live even a smidgen of how luxuriously he is living himself, but it looks like he might have to bite the bullet and pay up for running his mouth.
Do you think the original ruling will be overthrown? Should he have to pay $30,000 in child support for a toddler?
