Ray Lewis to Judge

Don't Let My Baby Mama

CSI My Bank Accounts!!!

12/16/2012 12:57 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Baltimore Ravens
linebacker Ray Lewis is going for the block ... against his baby mama who's trying to hire a forensic investigator to comb through his finances -- all in an attempt to squeeze more child support out of him.

You'll recall ... Lewis and his baby mama Sharnika Kelly are in a nasty battle over child support for their young son -- and earlier this year Sharnika asked a judge to throw out their current agreement, claiming when she signed the deal back in 2001, Ray never disclosed his full income.

Sharnika even asked to have a forensic investigator come in and determine how much the NFL star is actually worth -- in hopes to have the current $3,500-a-month order increased.

Now Ray is putting his foot down -- and recently filed legal docs in Florida asking a judge to bar his baby mama from looking through his finances.

In docs, Ray argues the order established in 2001 is totally legit -- and says that Sharnika had a lawyer when she signed, so if she wanted to fight it ... she should have done so WAY back then.

A judge has yet to rule.

Ray Lewis, Baltimore Ravens linebacker, is facing a fight over the child support paid to his son’s mother Sharnika Kelly. Kelly is seeking to increase the $3,500.00 per month support paid for the benefit of the parties’ child, stating that when she signed the agreement in 2001, Lewis failed to disclose some of his financial assets. Lewis counters that Kelly was represented when she signed and should have contested the agreement at that time. Kelly has asked a judge to allow a forensic accountant to review Lewis’ assets to determine his exact income. Lewis has filed objections. In Virginia, the items relevant to a child support determination would be the parents’ incomes, payments made toward the child’s health insurance, and work-related child care expenses. Certainly Lewis’ income is relevant for child support purposes, but a judge will have to decide if the extreme measure of forensic investigation is warranted in this case.

A mere $150 per month in child support for 2 children. Taxpayers are tired of fund WIC/TANF/SNAP/Medicaid babies while you give baby Daddy a break. Baby Mama's get all you can for yours!

Ray Lewis pays an estimated $300k in child support. Ray, I hope all those baby mama's raise you some doctors, lawyers and at least a viable pro .....good luck with that.
