There are deadbeat dads and then there are major league deadbeat dads: A lawsuit filed in Maryland claims Raptors center and sometime Shaquille O’Neal punching bag Chris Bosh is one of the latter.
In the suit, Bosh’s ex-girlfriend Allison Mathis accuses the NBA star of dumping her while she was seven months pregnant – but this was no normal Travis Henry-style impregnate-and-dash; this was truly dastardly. Mathis says Bosh got her pregnant on purpose, even buying her fertility drugs, then gave every impression of wanting to settle down with her…in a new $1.6 million Texas home that was in both their names. Unfortunately, Chris changed his mind one day, threw Allison out of their house and refused to pay for her and their baby’s medical care. Allison says she developed complications, but didn’t have the money to see an obstetrician, plus the utility companies were hounding her over unpaid bills. She ended up moving into her mother’s two-room apartment in Maryland and had to have the baby by emergency C-section.
Of course, Bosh then did what any responsible young man would do in his situation: he demanded a paternity test. Which came back positive. Now he’s doing the only other thing he can do: deny the allegations. And fight the woman he (intentionally) knocked up and dumped in court even though he’s making $14.4 million/year and could easily afford to keep any number of baby mamas sheltered, clothed and fed.
