Chris Bosh

Fighting to See His Daughter

Chris Bosh isn't just battling opposing players on the court every night for the Miami Heat -- he's battling his baby mama in court as well ... because he believes she's trying to keep him from seeing his daughter.

According to court docs filed in Bosh's custody case in Maryland, Bosh's baby mama, Allison Mathis, has refused to speak to Bosh directly since April 2011 -- instead communicating only through lawyers.

Bosh alleges Mathis has repeatedly either ignored his requests to see 3-year-old Trinity or only allowed him to see her for fewer days than their custody arrangement dictates. 

Bosh filed docs a few months ago to have Mathis held in contempt and a court date had been set for July 12. But Bosh recently requested to have that date moved up because he says it conflicts with training camp for the U.S. Olympics team. A judge has yet to rule. 

Bosh and Mathis battled over Trinity last June, when Bosh tried to get Mathis to allow their daughter to come see him play in the NBA Finals. Bosh didn't get extra time like he wanted, but the series lasted long enough for Trinity to see him play during one of her regularly-scheduled visits.

Calls to Mathis' lawyers have not been returned.

What he needs is to hire himself a hit man. She's an ignorant sperm receptacle who is collecting welfare from him and NOT letting him see his daughter. Unfortunately, all baby mommas have this gene, for some it's more obvious than others.

Don't know if she has good reason or not, do know she better start getting with the program or a judge is going to fix that for her.

Going through the samething with my ex wife, women act like they are God almighty but hurt the kids in the long run. A child should be able to be around both parents.

with all his money & connections, not to mention his litigiousness, wouldn't bosh have gotten this straight by now? don't fall for this hype. more to the story than meets the eye (or tmz's lowly standards). he sees the baby ALL the time. i know because she misses her dance classes every other week to travel to miami to see him.
