7/16/2008 12:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

King Baby Daddy, er former NBA star Jason Caffey, just cost himself a ton of dough. The ex baller had a case against his one of eight baby mama's dismissed -- because he didn't bother to show up to court!
Jason Caffey: Click to launch!
The former Chicago Bull had asked a Georgia judge to reduce his $4,250 a month child support payments, but didn't follow through and provide the court with the necessary documents to prove his financial status and income.

Then Caffey was a no-show to a hearing today to discuss his suit. So the judge not only dismissed Caffey's case, he rubbed a lil' salt in his wound and awarded ex Lorunda Brown over $17,000 in attorney's fees to boot.

Brown's lawyer says Caffey still owes over $100,000 in past due child support. Pay ya bills!

Why is it the only time TMZ runs a story on a black person it's either when they get arrested or have to pay their spouse child support? Racist much. Never any other time doing usual things. Like when they show Britney Spears going to Starbucks. Why can't they show Gabrielle Union doing the same?

Calling him an NBA star is a huge stretch. The dude scored less points per game (7.3) than his baby momma total (8).

just looked up
this baller's stats;

he made $28 million
over a 10 year career.

L.A.M. ( lawyers, agents & managers )
take 20% right off the TOP.

that left him with $22 million.

taxes took half of that, so left
him with about $10 million.

now, an average lifestyle of roughly $80 a month
over 10 years, tells you this late 80's baller is BROKE !!

he hasn't made a dime in the last 5 years and
STILL has to pay up on SEVERAL babies ?

If Caffey has no money after grossing $28M, it is another example of players getting too much money and not having proper education or financial advise to make sure that they don't go broke by buying gold chains, diamonds, big cars etc.
Then he has 8 kids ......what a moron!! YOY!
If you made $75,000 per year for 40 years, you would have grossed $3M. An amount that most Americans would love to have.
Caffey makes 9 times this amount and he has no money?? Double YOY!!
I have no sympathy for him, just the 8 kids that probably have an absent father figure, if you want to call him that
