Former New York Knicks Player Stoudemire Player Accused Of Fathering Daughter With Florida Woman
The woman who is suing Amar’e Stoudemire for paternity and child support apparently has a thing for New York Knicks players.
That’s because Quynn Lovett did the exact same thing to another baller who also played for the New York sports franchise, BOSSIP has learned.
Lovett, 36, sued former pro point guard Chris Duhon in 2009 for paternity and child support for her son, Jeremy Sterling Duhon. Duhon eventually admitted they’d had a relationship and agreed to pay Lovett $5,000 a month – with an extra $1,000 if she attended community college – plus $43,000 in back support for their son, Jeremy Duhon, who is now nine years old, according to court papers.
Their son was born right in the middle of Duhon courting his college sweetheart turned wife, Andrea, who he married in 2010.
In court papers, Duhon characterized Lovett as a work-shy gold digger who used their son to extract as much money as possible from him. Duhon said Lovett lied to him about attending college in order to get extra money, was constantly bugging him to advance her child support even though their son didn’t have furniture, and also said she asked for more money to pay for after-school care even though she was unemployed. Duhon contended that Lovett worked while they were together but totally stopped working once their son was born.
Four years later, Duhon successfully argued to have the $5,000 a month child support amount reduced to $1,302 a month, contending that his playing days were over because of an injury, and his new job as an assistant basketball coach brought in $4,583 a month – much less than his NBA wages.
Lovett meanwhile said she’d made no income in 2013, despite having more than $4,100 in expenses. She said her only assets were a 2003 Infiniti worth $3,000 and $4,000 in furniture.
Stay at home mom Lovett said Stoudemire sired her one-year-old daughter Zoe Renee last year, while he was married to Alexis Welch, his wife of five years and the mother of his four children. The pro athlete, who now plays in Israel, has called the suit “frivolous,” but acknowledged that he could be Zoe’s dad and agreed to pay $4,333 in child support each month.
Duhon, 34, was a point guard in the NBA from 2004 through 2013, and besides the Knicks, he played for teams including the Chicago Bulls and the Orlando Magic.
