Mario Chalmers’ Baby Mama Wants More Child Support Now That He Makes More Money
In the wake of new skirmishes between Dwyane Wade and his ex-wife first reported last week by Gossip Extra, Mario Chalmers has become the second Heat star dealing with domestic unpleasantries as the team shoots for its second consecutive championship.
Chalmers was ordered by a Miami-Dade County family judge to give up his financial documents during a hearing on Thursday. Chalmers, 26, has 30 days to make it happen. By then, the team could be in the league finals.
The hearing was called in the re-opening of a 2011 paternity and child support lawsuit brought by Chalmers’ longtime girlfriend when he played for the University of Kansas.
The case was originally closed in January 2012, when Chalmers was found to be the father of a now three-year-old girl named Queen Elizabeth Chalmers. Chalmers signed off on a child support deal with mom Brittany Burrough, whom he currently pays $2,600-a-month.
Now, however, he’s making much more after he received a three-year contract extension.
“Mr. Chalmers has been a gentlemen and has been paying as agreed,” said Burrough’s lawyer, Roger Schindler. “But Mr. Chalmers is also a very talented athlete whose income has substantially grown since that agreement.”
Actually, it grew at least fourfold — to $4 million a year!
“We’re asking for a modification of the child support agreement to something that’s fair to both parties,” Schindler said.
According to the report, Florida has a “good fortune” law that forces a parent making millions to pay an increased amount of child support.
If Mario has been such a “gentleman” and “paying as agreed” doesn’t it seem a little greedy to be asking for more? His baby mama must have her eye on a new Benz or something…smh
