Misfortune has struck Miami’s Heat star Chris Bosh’s 3-year-old daughter, Trinity.
Little Trinity lives with her mother Allison Matthis in Florida and due to her mother’s recent job loss at a construction company and her home being up to foreclosure, she’s been forced to apply for food stamps. Having a child with such a well known star, one would usually suspect there was no need to apply for food stamps; she should be getting enough from him in child support. In fact, according to the state guidelines, a person in Bosh’s status, whose yearly salary is around $18 million, should be paying around $30,000 monthly in child support. So what has happened?
Matthis’s lawyer, Jane Carey speaks out about her ordeal. “Believe it or not, Bosh pays her a mere $2,600-a-month in child support!” she exclaims. “My client just lost her job and applied for food stamps for her and Mr. Bosh’s daughter. She’s about to be foreclosed on, he won’t help her and all he wants to do is go to London with his daughter. Are (you) kidding?”
Like typically estranged parents, both Bosh and Matthis have been in and out of court for everything, from child support to time spent with the child. The recent debate has been about Bosh wanting to take 3-year-old Trinity with him to London in order to watch the Summer Olympics with her. Florida judge ruled against Bosh’s request however to take his child out of the country.
Carey has now returned back the courts and is asking an adjustment be made on the child support due to its ridiculously low amount for a man with his type of salary. A judgment has yet to be made for this adjustment so in the mean time, Matthis has taken the alternative route of asking for help while she awaits the judges decision.
