NFL Star Antonio Brown

Ordered to Fork Over

Money to Baby Mama

11/11/2012 5:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1104_antonio-brown_gettyPittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown can put his new $42-million-contract to good use and finally pay his baby mama all the money he owes her ... which is what a judge has ordered him to to.

In legal docs filed in Florida, Shameika Brailsford -- who had a child with Brown back in 2007 -- claimed the NFL star failed to cough up child support for the last eight months ... to the tune of $6,000. Despite Brown's big payday, his child support obligation is only $750 a month

After reviewing the case, a judge came back last month and sided with Shameika. Brown was ordered to fork over the cash. He was also ordered to follow the custody rules ... i.e. let Shameika see her kid. 

As TMZ first reported, Brailsford claimed back in January that AB took their kid to live in Pittsburgh without her permission and was preventing her from making contact.

A permanent solution for custody has yet to be reached.

A lawyer for Antonio Brown tells TMZ the NFL star will be current on his child support this week.

Wow ...    

Wow, what a dad. All that money and won't support his child.Good grief, I have a friend who pays more than that every month, but doesn't make the money this NFL player does. Shame on him.

He needs to be made to fork over money to be sterilized...along with the millions of others.

Wait. The kid lives with HIM! Did you read that far into the story WOWSOSAD? Guess not. So he's paying child support even though HE has custody and the mother doesn't actually need the money BECAUSE HE'S GOT THE KID.

A black athlete and a baby mama, this is a story we NEVER hear about. Someone should invent something that a man can use during sex to help stop a woman from getting pregnant.

Brown's 4 year old boy has lived with him for the past 9 months. Brown was required, because of the child support agreement, to pay for the past 8 months, even though his son was not living with the mother. Until there is a formal custody agreement in place, and until child support is re-negotiated, Brown will continue to pay the child's mother while the child lives with him.

So to those saying he doesn't support his child, he does.

hmm. let's see. do you think MAYBE it's possible he's not paying child support because the child lives with him? then you might say, "well she claims he took the kid." if you've read the article about the original custody claim, you'd see that Brailsford didn't file the custody claim until 3 months after Brown left with their son--during that time frame Brown was signed to a new big contract. oh but, i'm sure she's not trying to make a buck or two off of a multimillionaire football player. not a chance in the world, right?...

TMZ should rename itself "stories about minorities in legal and/or financial trouble dot com" because that makes up about 80% of the stories on here these days. Seriously. Look for yourself.

Let's get this straight...$42,000,000.00 the guy makes and he pays $750.00/month in child support???? This baby momma must take this man to court for proper child support.I'm all being fair be it man or woman...and clearly this is NOT right or fair.Support is based on income and someone was on crack here.

ohhh yah    

Brown has been trying to get custody of his son. That's why his son now lives with him. Ive seen pictures of them, his son looks like such a happy sweet kid.
