Holyfield's Baby Mama

Does a Legal K.O.

7/2/2008 7:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Evander Holyfield better get back in the ring and make some money -- because according to court documents the boxer hasn't paid child support for his 10-year-old son Evan in three months!

Holyfield
Holyfield's baby Mama, Toi Jenese Irvin, is demanding Holyfield either pay his $9000 debt in full -- or go straight to the pokey. Irvin also says Holyfield dropped their son's health insurance -- something he's required to do by a judge.

In addition to Evan, Holyfield has ten other children.

Hey, why shouldn't this woman make $36k a year for having a child? *sarcasm*

This is absurd! I'll bet $36k a year is more then she makes at whatever it is she does. Why should she double her annual salary for getting knocked up?

What a broken legal system we have.

"Holyfield dropped their son's health insurance -- something he's required to do by a judge."

So he's required by a judge NOT to have health insurance for his child? It's funny that TMZ considers themselves the IQ police when they seem to have such trouble forming a sentence correctly.

When Obama becomes President can we than begin the open and honest dialouge on Race? And why so many of his own Race choose not to be Fathers to the children they bring into this world? If we're not going to be honest about what is going on here within his own Race, especially about parental responsibilities, how will we ever get anywhere?

This Holyfield is the perfect example of a well known personality in that Race who perpetuates the image of boys having babies but not being man enough to be a Father to them, or in his case, pay for them.

Uh, no. It means Holyfield is the one required to pay for it as opposed to the kid's mother, The custody/paternity/whatever agreement species who pays for it. It's not about having insurance in general.

To Father Figure Please

Nope! Not going to happen. There could be a 20 year run of African American presidents and we STILL cannot point out that many black men father children then abandon them. If YOU so much as try, you will be branded a racist and castigated for mentioning anything negative about the black community. You'll probably be fired after the reverends Al Sharpen and Jesse Jackson get wind of you.

Remember all non-blacks in America are racists. Any time a black doesn’t get a job or is not promoted it is because they were discriminated against. Anytime there are not enough blacks on television or in movies it is because of racism. Anytime a black is pulled over by the police it is because every single police officer is the world is a racists…and those officers that are black are uncle Toms. Anytime a black gets cut off in traffic or a light turns red on them it is because of racism. Bird poops on their car…it’s white aint it? And remember this, it is ESPECIALLY racist anytime somebody mentions any negative perception of the black community. Those that do are the biggest racists of them all…they are the grand wizards of the klu klux klan.

Oh and one more thing. I for sure will be called racist for writting this.

Isn't he a Christian minister? (doot doot doot, another one bites the dust). Most people in that kind of position use it as a social coverup.

Ten kids? ever hear of a little thing call birth control? And how about the women who have children with these men, no matter what colour they are, they don't know about birth control either? And the cycle continues. As for child support that is something that has got to go the way of the dinosaur. I'm pretty sure women have choices these days and if you can't support them you have no business having them, both sexes are responsible. Yes, the fathers should take responsibility but dragging men into court and taking their money is not the answer. People need to plan their kids and no one needs to have more than two. A child is not a monthly payment.

I don't care what color he is, he's still a jackass to not use a condom and instead, father 10 kids by different women. These women are also stupid to screw a man and get pregnant just to have him support them.

Leela, are you really that stupid? Umm, taking men into court to pay for the children they produced isn't the answer. Let me guess, how many babies you got running around by baby daddies/???? If you are not holding the fathers accountable for the children, then who, would you have support them??? Really??

We know what it's SUPPOSED to mean, Lizard . . . it's whatever the
agreement SPECIFIES (what species lizard are you, anyway?)

What Katie is pointing out is that the way the sentence is written,
it's saying that he's required by a judge to drop his son's health
insurance.

Once again, TMZ has proven that its writers must have all flunked English.

You know what gets me? Judges and the media are quick to enforce child support orders when it involves celebrities but what about the rest of us? I was married for 12 years, had 4 children in that marriage. Been divorced since 1999. Child support was ordered for $280.00 per week for the 4 children PLUS he is suppose to carry health insurance for the kids. My ex has never carried insurance on the kids. We have an autistic son. I've never asked for an increase in support. Here we are, 9 years later, and we are owed $22, 776.76 in back child support. I couldn't tell you the last time we received any child support. I've filed a UIFSA in NC, Fl and NJ (he has a nasty habit of quitting jobs and hiding in other states to avoid paying). Where is our justice? There is a bench warrant for my ex's arrest in NJ for non-payment. When are the police going to go pick him up? Why won't the judge force him to pay? Make him max out his credit cards, turn over his 401K, take his bank accounts, cars, etc. Or keep him in jail until he comes up with the money. I can't make him be a father to our children (he hasn't seen them since 2000) but the laws allow me to make him financially support them....the problem is getting the police and judges to enforce the court order. That's what the laws are for...so enforce them already!

Children are a blessing "we're owed $22,776.76 in back child support". You should be thankful that you are able to spend as much time as you do with your children and stop whining about not getting paid to be a Mother.

Think of the joy your ex is missing out on by being away from his children. Appreciate the fact that while he is away you can raise them to be the best that they can be without the interference from a guy that sounds pretty flakey. Forget the back child support. It seems to cause you nothing but grief and anger, both of which you transfer unto your children. Forgive him for not paying and simply be the best Mother you can be and be thankful you have the opportunity to be that.
