'Real Housewives' Star

$75k Win in Child Support

War with Ex-NFL Star

10/22/2012 3:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

True Fact: The Falcons cut him after 3 years, which means half of the salary on the contract was voided. He signed with the Giants for the NFL minimum and limped to the end of his career. He hasn't played in 6 years.

Funny how the wife was there when he was making millions. I wonder how much of those millions were spent on her and her lifestyle. He's broke, and I'm sure she contributed to that. Still, yes, he does need to support his family. But the inclusion of the "Fun Fact" was only to exaggerate how much money made and stir up anger that "average joes" and low-women normally have toward athletes and celebrities who make a lot of money. Most NFL players go bankrupt. He hasn't made big money since 2003. Of course he is broke. Yeah, most of us could say if we ever made millions we would keep it, but we also probably think we wouldn't marry gold diggers either.

Get a life whore. Seriously. These women marry these athletes for a payday, but when you divorce, it's time to get a frickin' job. Isn't she on a realty tv show? Are they not paying her or something? have some self-respect
