This might be the pettiest thing you’ll read about in 2018.

Last week, the mother of Addison Russell’s daughter said the MLB star paid his child support with quarters and dollars bills despite him bringing in
$4.3 million in 2017.

Russell, who will miss the first month of the season in 2019 after accepting a 40-game suspension late in 2018 after his ex-wife Melisa Reidy accused him of domestic abuse in a blog post, now is dealing with another post from the mother of his child who is accusing him of being a deadbeat that pays her child support in insane ways to spite her.

Mallory Engstrom, the mother of Russell’s three-year-old daughter, has also accused the Chicago Cubs star of being absent from his child’s life.

“Since he abandoned us, thinking the grass was greener, about 4½ years ago, I’ve never once been able to rely on my daughter’s father to care for her in a time of need or while I am working,” she wrote in an Instagram post on Tuesday.

She also posted a picture of a few rolls of quarters that accused Russell of giving $600 of his child support payment with the coins and dollar bills.

Mallory also accused Russell of blocking her from social media “as an attempt to silence her.”

2018 has not been good to Addison Russell.
