Kanika Coleman Said She’ll Be Evicted; Started Go Fund Me Account To Raise Money
The mother of former Memphis Grizzlies player Andre Brown’s two daughters blasted the man as a deadbeat daddy who emotionally and financially abandoned his girls to the tune of $44,000.
Kanika Coleman said Andre, who was her boyfriend for 10 years, hasn’t fully paid the court ordered $1,300 a month in child support for the girls, aged 14 and 10 since 2013, and the mom of two said she’s about to be evicted and has been forced to start a Go Fund Me page to help get her back on her feet.
Kanika said her pride made her try and go it alone in supporting the girls, but as a full time student it’s been very difficult to do. She said she is now at her wits end, and was supposed to be tossed out of her home Sept. 20. She said she’s called him over and over and has left messages informing him about her and their children’s dire straits, but he has refused to acknowledge her.
“He just doesn’t care,” Kanika told BOSSIP. “There’s really no explanation.”
Records obtained by BOSSIP show Andre last made a payment of $250 in child support more than a year ago. As of Sept. 20, Andre owed a total of $43,660.33. Andre now plays in Mongolia and lives in Florida during the off season with his new wife and their child, Kanika said.
“It’s not derogatory. It’s not negative. I’m just asking for help,” Kanika told us. “It’s not about me being bitter. It’s about giving my kids a quality of life.”
