#HotTopics: Evander Holyfield’s Allegedly owes nearly $375,000 in Back Child Support and is Facing (Jail Time)
It is being reported that Evander Holyfield is facing jail for not paying child support. Allegedly the former boxer has not paid in more than two years and owes nearly $375,000. Holyfield is also facing wage garnishment. He is far from the only man to have trouble related to child support. Here is a look at some other boxers and wrestlers who have been arrested or faced significant penalties for their alleged failure to pay the mandated child support and who made headlines.
The AJC reports that back in 2000, when Emani was 7 years old and living in Los Angeles with her mother, a California state appeal ruled at the time that Holyfield must pay $19,270 a month in support for the child, which had been ordered by a state Superior Court judge.
In recent years, the aging boxing champ has faced severe financial difficulties including foreclosure on his property, and has been sued on several occassions for thousands of dollars in lapsed child support payments.
According to an Artilce last year, Holyfield owes “cumulative child support payments in the $500,000 range.”
Holyfield reportedly made over $230 million during his boxing career but with child support cases in Georgia, Texas and California, the amount he retained quickly dwindled. He has often fought to renegotiate the payments, arguing that his income since he left the ring, although he had attempted a comeback on more than one occasion.
This is Really Sad.When will people learn its not how much money you make,its how much money you KEEP.
