America’s Next Top BabyMama Releases Statement About Deadbeat NFL Dad

- By Bossip Staff Categories: ANTM, Babies, Baby Mama Drama

Last month we told you about ANTM alum Nik Pace’s love child with NFL player Braylon Edwards… now Nik has released a statement claiming she’s not just a golddigger looking for 70K in child support

This sh*t is long, so we hope you got your reading glasses on… Geez.

“It is unfortunate that Mr. Braylon Edwards and his legal counsel have gone beyond the scope of addressing a very personal matter privately and professionally and have released false statements about Ms. Nik Pace to members of the media. It has been very upsetting for Ms. Pace to have to defend her character against the deliberately false allegations brought against her.

The fact of the matter is that Mr. Edwards and Ms. Pace shared an intimate relationship for over two years. Over this time the relationship involved meaningful times spent with friends and family and resulted in the birth of their son. Mr. Edwards’ recent actions do not speak to the positive image he has portrayed in recent media reports. Contrary to statements released by Mr. Edwards and his attorney on December 18, 2009, he has not acted in the best interest of his child. In reality, Mr. Edwards has barely acknowledged the birth of his son or his upbringing.

At no time was Mr. Edwards refused the right to attend the birth of his son. Ms. Pace encouraged him to do so. Additionally, Mr. Edwards has yet to sign his son’s birth certificate making it impossible for his son to have his last name, Edwards as Georgia law requires. It is also completely and unequivocally false that Ms. Pace has ever requested a specified settlement from Mr. Edwards in the amount of up to $70,000.00 per month. As it relates to Ms. Pace’s residency, she is a legal resident of the state of New York and has resided and worked as a professional model in the tri-state area since 2006. Reports that she resides in Georgia are false. Ms. Pace gave birth where she received family support, just as many women do.

In closing, Ms. Pace truly preferred for she and Mr. Edwards to come to an amicable agreement regarding the care of their child without the involvement of attorneys, but it is Mr. Edwards who opted otherwise by initiating a legal process. Ms. Pace has and will continue to limit the disclosure of personal and sensitive information in the best interest of her child and asks that the media takes into account the facts regarding the situation before drawing hurtful conclusions that further support the disingenuous statements. Ms. Pace’s only wish is that Mr. Edwards accepts the shared responsibility of raising their son and chooses to become the loving father his son deserves.”

Y’all had a relationship ON THE LOW for TWO years — and now you expect him to change and have a REAL relationship with the baby he probably thinks you only had to keep him and his money in the first place? Good luck with that.

    And she got pregnant for…

    i guess Braylon didn’t know where babies came from

  • FiveStarish

    Duh, you should never get pregnant without being married. He didn’t want anyone to know he was with you…because? He thinks that you are not good enough. These broads have no self-esteem.

    i WOULD LOVE TO SEE THINGS CHANGE AND GO BACK TO THE WAY THEY WERE A LONG TIME AGO. I WOULD LOVE “BABY MAMA” TO BE A RAIRETY AND “WIFE AND MOTHER” BE MORE POPULAR. I WOULD LOVE TO SEE MORE WOMEN OPT FOR MARRIAGE BEFORE BRINGING CHILDREN INTO THE WORLD. I KNOW THAT PEOPLE CAN SEPERATE AFTER MARRIAGE, BUT AT LEAST THE CHILD WOULD KNOW THAT AT SOME POINT MY MOM AND DAD LOVED EACH OTHER ENOUGH TO COMIT. MY MOM SLEPT WITH SOMEONE WHO THOUGHT ENOUGH OF HER TO COMIT. MORALS ARE DEAD. 😦

    What I don’t get is (and I’m not saying its this situation) when a female tells a man that she is preggers and they discussed having a baby with her and he let her know that he doesn’t have a child, why does a guy have to be legally obligated to that child.

    She is the one that decided to have the child, after he explicatively told her that he doesn’t to have any kids. Sometimes, guys wear condoms, they break, and the chick has the baby, although he told her that he doesn’t want it and then have the nerve to put him on child support.

    I believe, if a chick decides to have a baby on her own she should be able to take care of that child on her own. I’m a female and I don’t agree with this child support B S and all these birds putting holes in condoms and getting preggers so that they can live off of another person’s hard work.

    co-sign with you
    Although I am not married yet with my son’s father, we are engaged to be married soon.

  • better than that

    Regardless of the origin of the relationship he’s a grown man and knew what the consequences could lead to if you lay down unprotected. So, i think he’s to full responsilblity for the results of his on the low, on the top, or however you to describe it relationship…peace!

  • KeepNit2Real

    who cares about some wannabee chic airing out her dirty laundry?

    That’s what’s wrong with the black community….forever keeping some nonsense started.

    Braylon is a cool dude.

  • tb

    Another thing I don’t understand, it women saying that a person should be married to have a child and be a family with a man, huband and wife.

    My thing is, if he is your husband and he feels like cheating is it going to stop him that he is married? If he is your husband and he feels like leaving, is he going to stay because he is your husband? If a man wants to leave or cheat, he will no matter if you are married or just dating. Likewise a woman to a man. So that “marriage before baby” thing, uuum, what difference does it make if you guys are married and he still doesn’t want to be there for the child?

  • You Smell Me??

    Some of these women are a trip! WHAT GOES IN YOUR MIND TO LET A NFL PLAYER GO RAW DOG UP IN YOU?! WHAT GOES THROUGH YOUR MIND NOT TO BE ON BIRTH CONTROL WITH SAID PLAYER!?

    Im starting to believe these women look at children like checks, and an EASY PAYROLL!

    @ tb

    I feel that if 2 ppl engage in a sexual relationship, then they should bear the responsibility that goes behind it..
    Babies are a serious matter and should never be taken lightly..
    But to abort or have to raise a child alone only because the other party wasn’t ready to be a parent is just as bad…
    It’s a known fact that even if you prepare yourself to be a parent, you can never really be prepared for what goes behind it…

    The truth is every action has a reaction.

  • FiveStarish

    I hope he loses some money, because that sounds like the only thing he cares about. Why would any man deny their own son, let alone a man with money to take care of him. He’s a sicko

  • FiveStarish

    @You smell me
    They are both adults. He shouldv’e used a condom, since he’s the one scared like a lil B*#^! of growing up. It is not ONLY the womans job.

  • MistaO

    Fab, you said it all.

    But trust, most of these people today have no inclination towards doing things the “right way”. They just don’t. I mean what, we’ve been living and seeing the results of broken/non-existent families for the past 20-30 years and people STILL make decisions to bring children into the world in these situations???

    Just plain stupid…

  • Kigali- I will check you

    @tb

    Youre an idiot. First of all most divorces are initiated by women not by men. While marriage will not prevent a man from cheating he is far more likely to cheat, leave, not come back, and never see his children if he was never married to the mother of his kids. So statistically speaking (and I know black females hate statistics) you are safer and your children are safer if you are married.

    Why does a mother stay with a “baby mama”label for life,why is she still a baby mama when the child is not a a baby anymore?just askin’….just askin’…

  • Rated R

    WHY DOES THE MEDIA (INCLUDING THE IDIOTS THAT RUN THIS IGNORANT SITE DESIGNED TO TEAR OUR PEOPLE DOWN)ALWAYS TRYNA FIND A WAY FOR THE FEMALE TO LOOK LIKE THE BAD PERSON? AND PEOPLE WHY BLACK MEN ARE SUCH COWARDS..

  • tb

    @ living life with no regrets

    How do you know it was unprotected? How do you know she just didn’t put a hole in the condom? How do you know it didn’t break? I believe I said that in my comment.

  • Kigali- I will check you

    BTW

    Dam this man is fine.

  • butter26

    exactly. men know what theyre doing when they lay down also and “not wanting” a child is not a good reason to abort. its covering sin with sin.

  • LaDiva

    @ Rated R

    Unfortunatley there have been a number of women (worldwide) who have resorted to getting pregnant to either entrap a man or for financial gain..
    Not all women are like that but sadly we seem to all get pigeon-holded in that manner.
    Now as far as blk men are concerned, that is also another falsehood.
    There are still some exceptional men out there from all races who will be a husband, father,protector and provider to their significant other…
    I have faith in men that despite all the bad history they have had, there are still some outstanding real men in this world.

  • living life with no regrets

    It’s sad that she has to raise her son alone. You would think a black man with his status would want to be a good role model but i guess it’s not the case. Whether he wanted kids or not the child is his and thats the price you pay when you lay down with someone unprotected.

    “It’s sad that she has to raise her son alone. You would think a black man with his status would want to be a good role model but i guess it’s not the case. Whether he wanted kids or not the child is his and thats the price you pay when you lay down with someone unprotected.”

    BIBLE! Another poster and I were just discussing how in this Obama age the black man should be flourishing and taking advantage of his new “status” in a positive way but he just continues to disappoint!

    And I agree with the person who said if a woman doesn’t want to be a mother then birth control is her responsibility as with a man who doesn’t want to be a father. I mean come on, posters like Kigali always want to act like a man should never have to use a condom for anything. Thats the reason why the black race holds the highest STD stats right now. All she seeks to do is put the black woman down to the fault of sounding like an idiot suggesting that black men do not need to use condoms in any situation. SMH!
