The Toronto Raptors center, Chris Bosh turned 25 yesterday and received a gift that I have never received. The gift was he learned that on the same day news has surfaced about a lawsuit that was filed throwing deadbeat dad accusation. I wonder if this was listed on his Amazon.com wish list.
According to a lawsuit that was filed in Maryland, Bosh and his ex-girlfriend, Allison Mathis, were shacking up in ’08 and they decided that Bosh would be her baby’s daddy. Mathis states everything was fine until he returned from that CGI hell on earth known as Beijing where he participated in the Olympics last August. By the time she was seven months preggers he dumped her ass. She is claiming for the stress that this situation has brought along with the refusal to support her, caused complications with the pregnancy. Mathis gave birth in November via C-section and Bosh has only been in the same room with her twice.
Somebody call Maury and make sure this is legit… Judging by the “bigger the hoop, the bigger the ho” principle, a paternity test is necessary.
Working from a Oliver Stone conspiracy angle, the Toronto Star equates Bosh’s poor on court performance since the lawsuit was filed:
“But Mathis filed suit on Nov. 26, 2008, and, not long after, Bosh and the Raptors fell into an abyss. Bosh, who averaged 26 points a game on 54 per cent shooting in November, averaged 21 points a game on 44 per cent shooting in December, and the team he leads, after putting together a win-loss record of 8-8 in October and November, went 4-12 for December, a stretch of abysmal play that saw coach Sam Mitchell fired and a hotly anticipated season began to disintegrate into its current tatters.”
It’s nice when the injuries excuse runs out to be able to latch on to the personal-issues angle.
Naturally Bosh has responded and says he will take care of his responsibilities. Interestingly enough back in December Bosh had a curious choice for his movie viewing pleasure. I wonder if he chose this movie for its entertainment value or if it was some sick prelude of what the future held. After all nobody but Bosh could have predicted this.
