Default Travis Henry - NFL Father Of The Year

More good PR for the NFL for Goodell to deal with.

Travis Henry just got tackled by a $3,000-a-month child support judgment.

Sure, the Denver Broncos running back has a $25 million contract and a base monthly salary approaching $50,000, but that kind of bill can still crimp your style when you're accustomed to expensive cars and fancy jewelry ? and lots of other child support payments.

Henry, 28, has fathered nine children by nine women in at least four Southern states and has been ordered by various judges to provide child support for seven of them, according to court records involving one child living in DeKalb County

DeKalb Superior Court Judge Clarence Seeliger this week ordered Henry to provide $3,000 a month for the Lithonia boy he fathered out of wedlock three years ago with Jameshia Beacham, now 29....

Beacham could not be reached for comment. Her lawyer, Robert Wellon, said he asked that the trust be set up because Henry rarely made the payments mandated by an earlier order, though they were $800 less a month. Wellon said there was testimony establishing that Henry received a $1 million bonus earlier this year but quickly spent most of it, buying, among other things, a Mercedes and gold jewelry.

"My argument was, if he makes wise investments, other than in gold chains, then he should be able to make the payments," Wellon said.

Edlin, though, said Henry collected much less than $1 million after taxes, and he said much of it went to debts. "He doesn't have any money," Edlin said. "The guy has significant financial issues."

Records show that Henry's children are scattered across both the American and National Football Conferences ? including Florida, North Carolina, Tennessee and Georgia. Wellon said Henry talked about gathering them together to watch him at training camp

Wow, I didn't think anybody would beat Shawn Kemp's 7 kids with 5 different mothers.

That is absolute ignorance.

How can guy just travel the country impregnating women left, right and centre - especially a guy as high profile as Henry?

It amazes me that this is the first we have heard of this.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

We are just being judgmental.. My excerpts omitted this line that ended the story:

Edlin said Henry wants to be a good parent. "I know these are a lot of kids, and there might be some questions about it," he said, "but he's a really committed father."

Plus those kids could follow in their father's footsteps and make their mom some serious money.

Well, of course 'protection' is the duty of both halves of the consenting couple.

But its possible (although maybe not likely) that all these women only have a single child and its Henry's.

I would like to chime in about cultural differences, but I'd be branded a racist.

Then again, give Tom Brady a few years and he might make a run at Henry and Kemp's records.

I too would like to chime in, but I would be considered old-fashioned.

Then again, if he kept his pants zipped, he WOULDNT HAVE FINANCIAL DIFFICULTY.
