Former NBA Star's Ex

He's a Deadbeat Dad

THROW HIM IN JAIL

EXCLUSIVE

0408_Mark-Blount_getty
Former NBA star Mark Blount belongs behind bars ... for missing ONE measly child support payment -- this according to the guy's baby mama.

It's pretty strange ... considering most pro athlete child support actions are over tens of thousands of dollars in unpaid support -- Dennis Rodman, anyone? -- but Blount's ex says he merely owes $2,619.

The ex -- a woman named Sifika Mayfield -- filed a motion for contempt and enforcement, claiming Blount dropped the ball on a recent child support payment for their two sons, Mark and Mark (no joke).

According to Mayfield, Mark is supposed to pay $5,119 a month -- but in January, he only paid $2,500. Now, Mayfield wants a judge to throw Blount in jail and revoke his driver's license.

Mark filed his own docs soon after, claiming the reason he paid less is because one of his sons now lives with him ... and Blount personally pays for his schooling. Mark now wants the support order modified given the new living arrangements.

A judge has yet to rule.

Mark Blount played many years in the NBA and somehow got many NBA GM's to pay him millions, but he was NEVER ... EVER a STAR!

Correct me here but he was paying for 2 children living with her, Now that one is living with him don't that mean he shouldn't have to pay her a dime since then she would owe HIM support for the child living with him, Just common sense?

Men need to learn how to wrap it up and when sleeping with "these" kind of women, wear your OWN condom and flush it down the toilet afterwards yourself. Trust no one.

My dad owes my mother and I $804,879. This bitch can cry me a river. My dad has made no effort, at least this guy gave her what he could. My dad took away our house and took the proceeds, doesn't pay a dime of child support and borrowed money from our family.
