'Real Housewives' Star

$75k Win in Child Support

War with Ex-NFL Star

1021_Bob-Whitfield_sheree_getty
Former NFL star Bob Whitfield has 21 days to fork over $75,000 to his reality star ex-wife Sheree Whitfield for overdue child support ... or else. 

According to legal docs obtained by TMZ ... Bob admits he failed to make 38 monthly child support payments of $2,142 to the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star ... more than $81k.

Bob claimed he simply didn't have the money -- and had asked the court to lower his obligation ... but that was denied.

Now, the two sides have struck a deal in which Bob has agreed to hand over $75k before Nov. 11 ... or face the consequences in court.

In addition to the $75k, Bob has also agreed to pay $1,000 per month for the next 12 months -- before reverting back to the original $2,142.

Fun Fact -- Back in 2000, Whitfield signed a 6-year contract with the Atlanta Falcons in the neighborhood of $30 million.

just my opinion    

even though i despise sheree's character on the real housewives, im glad that this guy is being forced to man up....but here's the catch...sheree is NOT going to use that money for her kids...shes going to use it to keep building that monstrosity of a house and buy more handbags. when she was crying about getting no support she was still out shopping and doing other frivolous things.

i felt bad for her, the other ladies made fun of her being broke (since they all had money). and this guy just wouldnt pay a dime of support for his kids with her and told her he wouldnt. she alone supported these kids, for years. she deserves to be paid.

I'd be cross eyed if I had to fork over 75k in a lump sum too.

Pony up! Or lock him up. Almst 3 years? What he thinks his kids can live without eating or a roof over their heads? Kids need all kinds of stuff. Why should she have to take custody and foot the bill. Take care of your kids.

YAY! She can finally finish her "Chez Sheree" now. LOL! I hope he fights it; spend twice that to keep her grubby claws off of it. I don't think his kids want for anything. That $81K? That'll go for Loubatin shoes and Vuitton handbags...we ALL know it. She's gotta look the part to try and get back on reality tv.

He has wonky eyes and she looks like Joe Camel's tranny brother. Those kids sure did lose the genetic lottery.

I have dealt with type of situation for the last 20 years trust me when I tell you i know how Sheree feels . Bob has no excuse.He has the money. At this point no matter what she does with the money It will go to the kids in the long run. Look how much money she put on the table to support her family when he did not
