The former girlfriend of NBA champion Chris Bosh has stepped forward to speak on her daily struggles since splitting with the Miami Heat player and how he refuses to support their daughter.
According to Allison Mathis, Bosh has changed from the days they were together when he played for the Toronto Raptors.
“I literally do not know, at all, this person,” Mathis said referring to Bosh. “I guess I knew somewhat CB before but the number one guy? I absolutely have no idea who he is. He was always very reserved and very laid back and enjoyed the private life we had. We were always invited to events, especially in Toronto. He was kind of like the king of Toronto and we had the key to the city. We went out quite a bit at that time and were always invited to big events and everything but we kind of took the back door in. We never really wanted to be in the forefront, we just wanted to enjoy our time and enjoy our friends but now it’s like, ‘Please let me know where the red carpet is.'” (Gossip Extra)
She also described how unwilling Bosh is in regard to the well-being of their child.
“Day to day struggles — with him, I was able to eat well every night now it’s my daughter and myself and it’s hard to know where the next meal is going to come from,” Mathis added. “I lost my job, not even a month ago, and this economy is really, really tough. I’m not the only one and I don’t expect people to just feel sorry for me and have pity on me, but I do think the father of my child, given the fact he is able to help his child out should be willing to. … He knows exactly what is going on. He knows that we desperately need his help and he’s just not even offering anything. I think he was quoted saying ‘I’m saddened’ but I think instead of being sad, be glad to help your child. … I have applied for assistance and I’m waiting on my letter back to know if I have been accepted — for food stamps, things of that sort.” (Gossip Extra)
In February, Mathis and Bosh clashed in family court over their daughter’s custody.
The 3-year-old daughter of the Miami Heat’s Chris Bosh will be able to attend her father’s 27th birthday dinner. Bosh and the mother of his daughter, Trinity, were in family court Monday to hammer out a custody schedule for March and April. Bosh had been in Orlando over the weekend to play in the NBA All-Star game. Among the items they agreed on was allowing Trinity to attend Bosh’s birthday dinner with his family on March 27. Bosh’s attorney told Judge Robert Evans that the NBA star wanted consistent and meaningful contact with his daughter. The attorney for Trinity’s mother, Allison Mathis, says Bosh has had that opportunity but that his playing schedule has sometimes made scheduling difficult. (Sports Illustrated)
Last year, he took legal action to have Mathis removed from starring in popular reality show “Basketball Wives.”
Chris Bosh hand-delivered a giant turd sandwich against the Boston Celtics this weekend, shooting three of ten from the field for 7 points. But cut the guy some slack. He may have had other battles on his mind. Bosh filed a lawsuit yesterday against his ex-girlfriend and a TV company in L.A. to prevent Allison Mathis from starring in the next season of the trash-tastic VH1 hit Basketball Wives. Mathis, the mother of Bosh’s young daughter, has apparently been hired to star in the third season of the Miami-based show, at least according to his lawsuit. (Miami New Times)
