Eric Williams Goes M.I.A. While Owing Over $24,000 In Child Support
Here’s a character we haven’t heard from in a while.
Eric Williams has been going through paternity drama for some time now. Over the summer we told you that a judge issued a warrant for the retired NBA player’s arrest after he refused to submit a DNA sample to establish paternity in a child support suit brought against him by a woman claiming to be the mother of his son. It was never really revealed what became of that issue, but it looks like Eric still has on his track shoes—and this time it’s in regard to his teenage son.
According to TMZ, the 41-year-old former “Basketball Wives” star currently owes $24, 434.45 in child support to the mother of his 13-year-old son. The way the story is being told, back in November a Colorado judge ordered Eric to pay his son’s mother the aforementioned amount, but she hasn’t been able to collect because she can’t find him—neither can anyone else.
“Efforts to locate [Williams] have been exhausting,” said the woman’s attorney.
It’s believed that the woman’s legal team is prepared to take things a step further if Eric continues this game of hide-and-seek and we hear that prison time is a potential consequence. While there may be more to this story, it’s beginning to look more and more like those deadbeat dad rumors are true.
Get it together, Eric!
