How often do mothers of high profile athletes’ kids have to resort to food stamps? We saw it happen to Basketball Wives’ Tami Roman, now it’s happening to Chris Bosh’s ex, Allison Matthis.


Matthis is the mother of the Miami Heat's 3-year-old daughter, Trinity. According to Matthis, her recent job loss as a secretary at a construction company has caused her Florida home, where she and Trinity live, to be put up for foreclosure and she was forced to apply for food stamps. But how does the ex of an NBA star, who is currently paying child support, turn to food stamps to feed their child? Jane Carey, Matthis’ lawyer, told the press:


“Believe it or not, Bosh pays her a mere $2,600-a-month in child support!  My client just lost her job and applied for food stamps for her and Mr. Bosh’s daughter. She’s about to be foreclosed on, he won’t help her and all he wants to do is go to London with his daughter. Are (you) kidding?”


Carey was referring to Bosh’s request to take Trinity to Long with him for the Summer Olympics. His request was denied by the judge.


Bosh and Matthis will obviously be heading back to the courthouse to battle it out over his current child support wages.


According to Florida state guidelines, a person of Bosh’s status, who’s salary is around $18 million, would be expected to pay around $30,000 a month on child support.


Someone will pay, but who? Bosh? Or taxpayers?
