Actress Jennifer Freeman And Estranged Husband At War Over Financial Support; He Claims She Hasn’t Worked Since “My Wife & Kids”
Every time you turn around, someone is battling over some form of money. This week’s dueling duo is actress Jennifer Freeman and estranged husband (and former NBA player), Earl Watson. The couple tied the knot in 2009 and had quite the tumultuous union, including a violent confrontation where Freeman attacked Watson with an iron after allegedly seeing some suspicious text messages in his phone. They managed to reconcile, but found themselves at odds again later. Now they’re in court fighting over child support. She wants him to pay more to take care of their 5-year-old daughter, and he wants her to do more to provide for herself and their child.
According to TMZ, she is looking for a lot more than the $2,500 the courts have ordered him to pay per month. She says that the former NBA player has real estate worth millions, so he can afford to pay more for his daughter’s schooling, her extracurricular activities, etc.
However, Watson says Freeman needs to pump her breaks. He retired from the NBA after the 2013-2014 NBA season and allegedly only makes $30,000 a year as a coach for the NBA’s D-League, so he claims that there’s not much more he can offer her aside from the ordered $2,500.
And on top of that, Watson claims that Freeman is just trying to live off of his dime. In court papers filed at LA County Superior Court, he says that she hasn’t had steady acting work since finishing “My Wife and Kids,” which ended in 2005.
“She has not been employed on a full-time basis since appearing in the early 2000s on the television show ‘My Wife and Kids.’ She has secured sporadic acting roles for which she has received nominal remuneration. Her last paying job was in Nov. 2014 when she appeared on the Real Husbands of Hollywood.”
However, Freeman blames her lack of work on what she calls a holding deal with BET (meaning, she has to work exclusively with the network on TV projects for however long their contract is valid). But no matter what’s going on with her and her funds, since she’s the primary caretaker, she believes that could step up and do more financially. A judge has yet to rule.
But what do you think? Is $2,500 per month enough considering that he only makes $30,000 a year?

Bow Wow’s daughter, Shai, and the Harris family aren’t the only ones getting cute this week.

And my eyes could be tweaking, but I think she’s pushing around a child-size cart. Isn’t she adorable?
Speaking of adorable kids, Bow Wow (who received a lot of heat last week for child support issues and his financial situation) and Joie Chavis’s daughter, Shai, was seen having fun with her grandmother, Teresa Caldwell, this past weekend The little one in her floral dress and bow headband was in vogue with her granny, and Teresa even put her pic side-to-side with her son’s baby picture.
