After months of back-and-forth and public input on how much child support Chris Bosh should have to pay for his first child, the NBA champ won big.
According to Gossip Extra:
Miami Heat superstar Chris Bosh saved millions today — and he didn’t have to lift a finger.
A judge in Orlando sided with Bosh in his attempt to be deemed an official resident of Texas instead of Florida!
Why does Bosh keep claiming he doesn’t live in Florida three years into his contract with the Heat?
A baby mama is getting $2,600-a-month in child support from the baller because of a ruling in Texas, which Bosh claims as his official residence.
Had Bosh been found to be a Florida resident today, he’d be looking at $30,000-a-month in child support for the next 15 years!
Bosh, who was not in court, LeBron James and the rest of the Heat are playing at the Washington Wizards tonight, and he couldn’t be reached for comment.
The ruling comes as part of a three-year battle between Bosh and an ex-girlfriend over their three-year-old daughter. The Heater was married last year to Adrienne Bosh. They have an infant son.
Jane Carey, Mathis’ attorney, called today’s ruling a “miscarriage of justice” and promised to appeal.
“Everybody knows that Texas is rough on horses and women,” Carey said. “Now, I guess that any young man in Florida who makes big money should get a Texas address before they have a baby.
“They’ll save a lot of money that way.”
In August, the Dallas born-and-bred Bosh did appear before Orange County Circuit Court Judge Robert Evans and was grilled for two hours about his current residency. At the time, Carey stopped just short of calling him a liar.
At that hearing, Bosh admitted that, in order to get a mortgage for his $12.5 million-Miami Beach home, he signed an affidavit swearing that the North Bay Road mansion would be his primary residence.
Bosh also fielded questions on why his name was purged from Texas’ voters lists.
But Judge Evans said he based his decision on one set of documents: Bosh’s income-tax filings, sent to the IRS from Texas!
Bosh’s attorney couldn’t be reached for comment.
