Ray Lewis

I Don't Trust My Baby Mama

with My Money!

NFL superstar Ray Lewis admits he fathered an 11-year-old boy in Florida ... and he's totally willing to provide support -- with one caveat ... he doesn't want the baby mama to get her hands on the money.

According to court documents filed in Florida, Lewis has an ongoing paternity case over his son with a woman named Sharnika Kelly. In court papers, Lewis acknowledges being the father, but the issue of support is slightly more contentious ...

According to the docs, Lewis is hesitant to fork over money to Kelly because he says she has an outstanding judgment against her in a civil case ... totaling over $1,000,000.

In the docs, Lewis says he has "grave concerns about the Mother's character" and feels she'll siphon off money meant for his son ... either to pay off her debt or support her other child ... not Ray's.

Lewis is asking the court to establish a guardianship for his son to manage any support Lewis eventually pays.

Lewis and Kelly had a hearing scheduled for last month, but Lewis had to reschedule because he had a game in San Diego. The judge has yet to rule on his request.

that's odd. rayray seems so concerned about a child whose life he likely only plays a small role in, but yet he has no hesitation to murder a man in the same year that he fathered this child.

I've love this man since the day I seen him doing a rediculous dance at the super bowl. Y do men sleep around in the industry and end up paying so much child support. My asian uncles dont have this prob but my other side does too funny

Well she did open her legs for you, at least you owe her free money untilt he child turns 18, NOT!

I like what he's doing here, women should work like the rest of us, not just at opening thier legs for money, they can always go into prostitution if that's all they know.

Well, it's been awhile, but once a killer always a killer. It's like falling off a bike.

My Opinion Counts    

ALL OF THESE WOMAN IN THE USA ARE CRAZY! THEY ALL SEEM TO BE GOLDDIGGERS. MEN, BE SMART AND GET YOURSELF A HOOKER AND USE PROTECTION, BECAUSE AT THE END OF THE DAY WE MEN WANT A "HAPPY ENDING" THE ISSUE IS HOW MUCH DO YOU WANT TO PAY FOR IT. YOU CAN CHOOSE OPTION A: GET MARRIED AND LOSE HALF OF YOUR WEALTH TO A WHORE WHO WONT GIVE YOU A "HAPPY ENDING" (COST= $100,000- YOUR LIFE) OR OPTION B: HAPPY HOOKER COMPLETE WITH TROJANS (COST= $100-$400). ITS A NO BRAINER GUYS!!
