NFL Star's Baby Mama

Give Me Back Our Kid!!!

1/5/2012 1:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown ran off with his child and is refusing to give the kid back to his mother ... so says Antonio's baby mama -- but the NFL player claims she's flat out LYING in a soulless scheme to make a quick buck. 

Shameika Brailsford filed docs in Miami, claiming Antonio has had custody of their 4-year-old son in Pennsylvania for months, while he plays with the Steelers -- and she's worried to death he's not being taken care of.

Shameika says 23-year-old Antonio took the child -- also named Antonio -- without her permission, and she hasn't had contact with the kid since Antonio took him away.

Now, Shameika's asking the court for an emergency child pick-up order -- which would require law enforcement to pick up her child and bring him back to her in Florida ... asap.

But Antonio's lawyer Jason Marks says Shameika is lying through her teeth -- telling us, "None of that is true. The mother consented to the child living with Mr. Brown back in February."

The lawyer adds, "The mother obviously knew where the child was the entire time and, in fact, Mr. Brown recently arranged for the mother to visit with the child in Pittsburgh. This is nothing more than a classic attempt to shake down a professional athlete for money."

A judge is expected to rule on Shameika's request in the near future.

Story doesn't smell right. But then, neither does the latest Courthouse murder-suicide.

This sounds fishy. She waits damned near a year to "file docs"? So we can assume the money ran out so she wants her little mealticket back? I call BS on this one.

It's a court order to bring the child back, not to give her money. So how is it that this is about money.

"Sham"-me-ka is straight up lying. No decent mother would let her kid endure MONTHS of bad care. You know she was popping $$$ child support so no excuse she didn't get off her butt and get her kid if the situation was truly what she says. The real deal is the child support $$$ stopped since the kid is living with Daddy.

In reference to my mistake in my first comment, it should now read:

"Black female. There's your problem."

Thanks goes out to BIGLarry for recognizing my error, and all those that support my correct opinions on race.

Boy oh boy I sure hope his attorney is smart enough to file on his behalf for custody...after a certain period of time if the child is primarily in his custoday consistently-he is entitled to full custody...I believe she probably did agree to it and not only that..she didn't want the responsibility of caring for the child - sort of like wanting a break...but, when her money ran out (the exorbitant amount of child support she, and other athletes BM's receive) she wants the kids back.....big sigh...and this comment is coming from a young black single mother who raises her child on her own and yes I do receive a good amount of child support as well...but I despise when Rats or Birds for that matter use the court system for their own selfish indulgences....and "how bout that?"

Some baby-mama's ought to hire a "hit man" business that takes out men who run from their responsibilities & dont pay their court ordered child support. How bout that?

Ok ladies let's get serious and look at this from a mother point of view!no child should be taking away from there mother Ab wasn't around from what I'm reading and all of a sudden he wants to take the child away from his mother ab is not and never was on child support so if it was really a money issue then why didn't she put Him on papers from day one.Antonio walking around like his **** don't stink but i can smell it thru this computer screen I don't approve of this but just like the rest of u our thoughts or comments don't matter abj is now 4 and were now hearing and seeing this child that's fishy to me where is his other child why is he hiding her/him antonio is just a stupid black man with money and that's the problem with black ppl!We always blaming other ppl for our mistake I don't think she's a bad parent nor money hungry.because if he wasn't around in the begin well then he owes her money and much more for being a single hard working teen parent!
