Chad Ochocinco has had a lot of ups and downs over the past few years.
The former NFL star is not only known for his humor, but for his many kids and baby mamas. As Chad was leaving his son’s middle school graduation in California, he was confronted by his ex’s mother, who demanded the NFL star pay the $38,000 in child support he owes her.
In the video, the woman can be seen trying to serve Chad with court documents in which he’s accused of not paying the mother of his 14-year-old son the nearly $40K in back child support. But Chad says he’s not trying to screw anyone over, he simply can’t afford to make the high monthly payment that was established back when he had an NFL income.
He told TMZ, “I haven’t had an NFL paycheck since 2011.”
According to his ex, Chad was ordered to pay $6,000 per month in support plus another $1,000 per month to be contributed to the child’s college fund – but he hasn’t paid since December 2015.
Chad says he kept up with the payments for years after his NFL career was over, but his financial situation has changed. He told TMZ, “I have a nugget, but I have to make the cash last with all 6 kids for the next 18 years. We have to scale back.”
Ochocinco and his ex are due back in court on August 2nd. Check out the video of him being served above.
