Amar’e Side Chick Sues Him For More Child Support Because She’s Unemployed & Doesn’t Want To Work
Former NBA player Amar’e Stoudemire, who retired in 2016 and currently plays for Hapoel Jerusalem of the Israeli Basketball Premier League and the EuroCup, is being sued by a Miami woman who claims that he is the father of her child.
It wouldn’t be such a big issue if Stoudemire wasn’t already married with four kids.
Stoudemire has reportedly been paying off his side-chick for months to keep her quiet, but she recently blew the top off his secret because she wants more money.
“Quynn Lovett, 36, wants a Broward County family court judge to affirm Stoudemire’s paternity of her 1-year-old daughter, Zoe Renee, and she wants permanent child support as well as full custody.
Stoudemire, meanwhile, claims in court papers he has been doing the standup thing by shelling out $4,333 a month in temporary child support.
Calling Lovett’s lawsuit ‘frivolous,’ the 6-foot-10 Lake Wales native says in court papers he was “informed of his paternity several months after the child was born.”
Lovett, who’s from Massachusetts and is a major Celtics fan, says Stoudemire hasn’t been involved with little Zoe’s day-to-day life and didn’t pick up any of her $11,000-plus maternity bills.
Stoudemire countered that, in addition to the voluntary child support payments, he has paid her $22,500.
According to court documents, Lovett is unemployed and not seeking employment because she wants to focus on raising the child. Her 2016 income was $2,983, until Stoudemire started sending her money.”
Stoudemire earned an estimated $160 million during his NBA career.
