Child Support Rears Its Ugly Head

Jason Caffey

Jason Caffey, former NBA player has filed for bankruptcy because he can not keep up with his child support payments. Caffey, who has not been in the NBA since 2003, has yet to pay up for about eight children ranging from ages 3-14 (SMH at them not even knowing exactly how many kids he had):

Former NBA player Jason Caffey had two kids with his wife before she filed for divorce in Fulton County last year. He also has had a slew of children — at least six others — with other women around the country, in and around Atlanta as well as in Alabama, Louisiana and Illinois. Most went to court and got hefty child-support orders from Caffey while he was making millions playing professional basketball. Now he has filed for bankruptcy in Alabama to get the women — and law enforcement — off his back.

Caffey’s attorney in Atlanta says his client agreed to the high payments because he could afford it. In a 10-year career with the Chicago Bulls, Golden State Warriors and Milwaukee Bucks, the 6-foot 8-inch power forward made as much as $5 million a season. “Those days have ended,” lawyer Jim Altman said. “And he’s been saddled by these payments that are absolutely astronomical.” Altman said he doesn’t know what happened to Caffey’s basketball money. Caffey did not return a phone message seeking comment. “He’s a deadbeat,” said another attorney, Clarence Roby Jr., who is representing a Louisiana woman who had two of Caffey’s children. “If you choose to procreate and have children coast to coast and you don’t take care of those children, you’re a deadbeat.”

It’s not clear exactly how many children Caffey has fathered — and his lawyer’s not telling. “It’s more than I have and fewer than what Evander Holyfield has,” said Altman, who has two children, compared to 11 for Holyfield. The attorney for Caffey’s wife, Bebe Caffey of Roswell, said she doesn’t know, either. Neither does her client.

“She didn’t know about all of the children,” lawyer Regina Edwards said. “She knew about a few. She had no idea he was being that disrespectful to her.”

This should be a message for all, damn, man up and take care of your kids…even if it’s a ga-zillion of them. Either that or quit man-whoring…

    Really!!!? But someone saw him on a luxury millionaire club what’s happening??

  • AND...

    Damn. Why not just keep it in your pants? Better yet get a vasectomy they are inexpensive, reversible, and will lessen your likelihood of having a child you can’t or won’t take care of until you’re ready.

    Why cldn’t he have gotten a lawyer, had all the DNA tests and had reasonable payments set up for when he left the NBA!

    Why didn’t he wear a condom?

    Why didn’t he get a vasectomy after child#4?

    Why didn’t he make any investments for after he left the NBA knowing damn well he has at least 8 chldren to feed, cloth and put through school?

    Why did women continue to have unprotected sex with him?

    SMDH, more fuel for the stereo type of dumb black atheletes and black men making all these kids they can’t or don’t take care of!

    The word “disrespectful” doesn’t quite fit this situation.

  • huh


    truer words have never been spoken

  • Mzgapeach


    disrespectful is sort of a mild way of putting it.

    Oppo always trying to promote that damn club!

    I see those women know about the 9 month wealth building plan. I thought it was a secret.

  • Lorna (London Girl)

    I used to date Nigel Benns son who was a world champion boxer and he was the same, his son didn’t even know his father past 2 and he has countless brothers and sisters. He even try to deny him and he is the only one out of his kids so far who actually has followed in his footsteps and become a boxer and is making it on the London circuit and your going to turn around and say he isn’t yours.

    He (the guy i used to see) had a half brother with the same name!

    Athletes are the worse!
