@ TrollSmasher: Can we just stick to the discussion (or end it, if you so choose) instead of insinuating that I'm a "Troll" or under some fake name. I'm guessing by your name that exposing Trolls is your schtick on here? I dont know. I'm a regular old person like you. I check this site every day and I never post here, in fact I opened my account today to comment. Why? b/c I felt like it. Probably the same as the day you decided to open your account whenever that was. What benefit would I have going around pretending to be 10 different people. I'm bored and have a little free time on my hands but not that bored and don't have that much time. I've been labeled a Troll, a *** ***, a gold digging baby mama, Allisons lackey, a mental midget etc etc b/c I don't agree with what you and some others say. I'm just on here like you and everyone else reading celebrity gossip and posting my opinion like you and everyone else!
Again, for what seems like the millionth time, $2700 is ADEQUATE to raise a child on, I know plenty of people who raise a child on less, way less. I NEVER said it wasn't, in fact I said in about each of my posts that is was. I'm sure his daughter is fine, not starving, not cold, loved and healthy. So if that's the main objective then it's all covered. My only point is that if he is living a certain way and CAN AFFORD for her to live the same way and still have MILLIONS left over I personally don't see why he wouldn't do that. That is all. Is he obligated to do that under the agreement he has now? NO. Is his child suffereing right now b/c he isn't? probably not. All I know is that If it was my kid and I was a multimillionaire I would still want my kid living in the same style I was (again, assuming that all that materialistic stuff is on my radar. Obviously it's on Chris Boshes). That is just me. Some people feel that they are satisfying their obligation by covering the basics, that's fine. I don't agree with that mentality when it's well within your means to give more. I believe it should be proportionate to ones income, particularly once we get out of the realm of the every day hard working person (be it a lawyer, construction worker, taxi driver) and into the realm of big/gross,huge money. Again, my opinion.
You stated "yea with that kind of money being dropped.....whats a poor child to do ***......they might actually have to stop eating at gourmet Che Maritz..and start eating grilled 50 dollar surf and turf entrees at Rays Steakhouse in ATL.......BLANK STARE...0_o" This comment actually speaks to my point in that while both options are probably ridiculous to the average person (including myself) why should Chris Bosh's son be eating at Che Martiz while his daughter is eating at Rays. That's all. Again, some see it as she has more than average and in that I agree. But I see it as his son is going to grow up one way and his daughter is going to grow up another. We're not talking about the average Joe who's getting raked for 30% of his income and cant even pay for his own apartment b/c he's spending so much on child support. We're talking about a man who is a multi-millionaire. I don't classify these two separate situations as the same. Again, my opinion.
I've stated several times I don't agree with women who actively seek out rich men in order to get pregnant and then collect a check. But those women are out there, no Baller is so stupid that they dont know about gold diggers. So they need to really take the responsibility to not knock these women up b/c in the end they have more (financially) to lose. Whether his ex is one of those woman I have no idea. From what Ive read from these comments they were in a long term relationship and planned to have the baby and then he left her. In either case, gold digger or not, I believe that once a baby is brought into the world the motive for having said baby is no longer relevant as far as the childs financial obligation to the child. It becomes a matter of the kids being provided for at the same level as the other children who live with the child support paying parent. You pay a percentage of your income. Plenty of courts across the US agree with me, imagine that!
@proverbial hater: by Minimum I mean paying what the courts or in this case the mediator have told him what needs to be paid. If you go to court and they tell you you need to pay 300 per week and you pay 300 per week that is considered the minimum payment and you have satisfied your court ordered obligation. If they order you to pay 300 and you pay 600 then you're paying above the 300 minimum. If you pay less then you open yourself up to a whole bunch of legal consequences. In this case Chris is paying the minimum, and in my opinion it's the BARE minimum when you look at how much he rakes in per year.
Again, Allison can go to school and get 10 BS, 3 MS, and 2 PhD but someone please tell me in what world she is going to bring in the same amount of money as CB? She won't. And of this fact he was well aware BEFORE he chose to knock her up and get her pregnant. And she was aware of that fact as well. I'm saying if you choose to give your sperm to a woman who will never have as much financially as you then to me you are saying "I'm willing to make up the difference to ensure that my child has everything that they would have if they were living with me". That is MY OPINION. You don't have to agree with it and my opinion has no bearing on on any of this in reality anyway. Neither does yours.
