Chad Johnson

I Make No $$$

Can't Pay My Baby Mama

5/19/2013 9:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0519-chad-johnson-tmz"At least you're not Chad Johnson" might be something people say soon ... because on top of being a wanted man, TMZ has learned the former NFL star's finances are sinking faster than his career.

Chad filed new court docs as part of an ongoing battle with one of his baby mamas, Andrea Pearson, asking a judge to lower his $5,420 per month child support payments because he claims can't afford it.

In the docs, Chad says he agreed to that number back in March 2012, when he was a successful NFL star. He says he now "finds himself without a contract and without a team. Simply [I am] unemployed."

He also says, at such a late stage in his career, it is CERTAIN he will never make the kind of cash he once did.

The news is a far cry from his money days ... in 2012, Chad claimed he raked in $66k per month​. But he got released from the Dolphins in August after his head butting arrest and his endorsement deals dropped like flies.

As TMZ first reported, a warrant was issued for Chad's arrest on May for an alleged probation violation, also stemming from the domestic violence case.

Hmmm ... where'd it all go wrong?

You can bet this bstrd has some $$ stashed someplace. If he can't pay the court ordered support, slam his useless butt in jail with the rest of the dead beats. I am sure he has $$ for anything else he wants to do except take care of his children with those stupid desperate baby mamas.

So let me get this straight, he made a fortune, fathered babies and now claims he can't afford to support his litter? Sounds about standard to me for his ilk. Get the money, knock his woman, lose the money, find excises you're no longer responsible. I guess he just can't figure out which head should be doing the thinking.

Money runs out faster than you'd think when you don't have any coming in. The way this guy spends, it doesn't surprise me that there's nothing left. He was arrogant enough to think he'd get another team to sign him and now he's going to have to face the cold hard reality of the unemployed. As for the people saying "Oh, he just needs to get a job". How is he supposed to do that? All he knows how to do at this point is play football. He has no real-world work skills. Sure, he can get a job at McDonald's or whatever, but he's still not going to be able to afford the child support on those wages. And what good would throwing him in jail do? Then it would be up to the taxpayers to take care of him. Honestly, I don't know what the right thing to do in this situation would be.
