Chris Bosh’s Side of the Story

by March 27, 2009

Bosh wants the world to know that he’s no deadbeat father: “In the immediate aftermath of the lawsuit being made public on Tuesday, Bosh would only say he loved his daughter, loved himself and respected his daughter’s mother. His attorneys, meanwhile, said earlier this week they will respond to the Mathis filing ‘within the next week or so.’ It was revealed yesterday in another Toronto publication that Bosh had in fact filed a petition in Dallas before his daughter was even born, and six weeks after he split up with Mathis, to begin arranging custody and financial support for the child. ‘I love my daughter,’ Bosh said in a statement delivered by a team spokesman following practice. ‘Of course I am financially supporting her.'”
