Chris Bosh’s Ex Makes Accusation of Abandonment

The Raptors all-star forward, on his 25th birthday, refused to comment on the specifics of a lawsuit filed by a former lover but said he would honour any commitments.

"All I can say is that I’m going to take care of my responsibilities like I’ve been doing in the past and in the future and keep respecting everyone," Bosh told reporters. "I love my daughter, I love myself and I respect her mother and I’ll leave it at that."

In court papers filed in her native Maryland, Allison Mathis has accused Bosh of abandoning her and her unborn child when she was seven months pregnant and denying her financial support, even when she became ill late in the pregnancy. The suit, which has not been proven in court, asks for unspecified child support and sole custody of Trinity Meyers Mathis, now just over 4 months old.
