Chad Johnson's Baby Mama

Don't Make Me Pay ...

For His Stupid Mistakes!

7/27/2013 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0727-chad-johnson-tmz
Just because Chad Johnson's finances are in the toilet doesn't mean his baby mama should have to suffer from a tighter wallet ... at least according to her.

Andrea Pearson filed legal docs in FL court -- firing back a Chad's request to reduce his $5,240 / month child support bill. Chad claims he can't afford it anymore, after getting fired from the NFL and losing his lucrative endorsement deals ... circumstances he says that were out of his control.

But Andrea argues in docs ... she shouldn't be punished for Chad's screw ups, clearly stating that his money problems ARE his fault, explaining, "he sabotaged his own earning ability through his conduct and criminal behavior."

Translation: The head-butting, domestic violence arrest (the catalyst for his $$$ woes) was Chad's doing ... and Andrea doesn't want her support cash to be collateral damage.

She's asking a judge throw out his request.

Well you can't bleed a turnip. These women cannot go thinking they had a kid by an athlete that the gravy train lasts forever. Chad is a perfect example. We women have got to do better and put ourselves in a situation where we are A. having children with a man who is our husband and B. have our own careers so that if the man dies, loses his job, or just flat out leaves then we are all set. Yes he needs to provide for his offspring, but if he doesn't have that kind of money anymore, then he doesn't have it.

Hey money-grubbing, gold-digging woman! How the hell you gonna get money from someone who doesn't have any? I think you latched on to the wrong athlete. Sorry for your luck, but that 18 year financial plan you pushed out your cootch, just may have blown up in yo face. P.S., Chad, you know you ain't broke, but good on ya for trying to keep this money grubbing hoe's hands off yo stack.

Its child support.... It's for her to care for his child/children. The amount ordered is based on what he was earning at the time the court ordered it. He is responsible for paying it. If the loss of income was beyond his control... Injury, illness, etc. He can ask for a reduction.... But if he causes the change income, he still has to pay. She might have been with him for the money, but he should've covered it up if he didn't want the responsibility of paying for his children. Also, shouldn't have knocked the crap out of his wife. A great athlete does not automatically equal a great man.

OK, if she shouldn't be 'punished' for his mistakes, then she shouldn't 'benefit' from his NFL career either.

The court will reduce the monthly child support. Where does she expect the money to come from? He does'nt have it . I know she thought she was all set, that's the risk you take when your motives are not honorable. Sorry Girlfriend!

obviously none of you guys have ever been in this position. she's taking care of his KIDS. this isn't spousal support. his lost wages are due solely on the account of him being an *******. she shouldn't have to cut back because of stupid mistakes he made. the fact that his kids will have to cut back but im sure he'll still be shopping and living well. his baby mother isn't knows already

Maybe she should have used the money to better herself when it was still a nice amount. Women are disgusting sometimes. A kid is not a means to a paycheck. I'm proud to say I never pursued child support for my daughter. I'm married but I commend the women not chasing support and standing on their own 2 feet to provide for their kids while bettering themselves. Women who do the right thing with their child support and who are not money hungry are awesome too.
