Ray Lewis Doesn’t Trust Baby Mama Sharnika Kelly With Child Support Money


I think more athletes and men in general should do this. Lewis has several children by several different women. This isn’t an uncommon situation with athletes and while Lewis is taking responsibility for all of his kids, he wants to make sure that his money is being used for the child, not so the mother can go make it rain.

TMZ has the details.

According to court documents filed in Florida, Lewis has an ongoing paternity case over his son with a woman named Sharnika Kelly. In court papers, Lewis acknowledges being the father, but the issue of support is slightly more contentious.

According to the docs, Lewis is hesitant to fork over money to Kelly because he says she has an outstanding judgment against her in a civil case … totaling over $1,000,000.

In the docs, Lewis says he has “grave concerns about the Mother’s character” and feels she’ll siphon off money meant for his son … either to pay off her debt or support her other child … not Ray’s.

Lewis wants a guardianship put in place to make sure his money is going to the proper place.

If the mother is sincere about doing what is best for the child I don’t know why she would have a problem with this, do you?


  1. Ray Lewis, Baltimore Ravens linebacker, is facing a fight over the child support paid to his son’s mother Sharnika Kelly. Kelly is seeking to increase the $3,500.00 per month support paid for the benefit of the parties’ child, stating that when she signed the agreement in 2001, Lewis failed to disclose some of his financial assets. Lewis counters that Kelly was represented when she signed and should have contested the agreement at that time. Kelly has asked a judge to allow a forensic accountant to review Lewis’ assets to determine his exact income. Lewis has filed objections. In Virginia, the items relevant to a child support determination would be the parents’ incomes, payments made toward the child’s health insurance, and work-related child care expenses. Certainly Lewis’ income is relevant for child support purposes, but a judge will have to decide if the extreme measure of forensic investigation is warranted in this case.

  2. I love Ray, however he has managed to make babies 6 times with 4 different women. He claims he is heavily with God but the last two were with different women in Baltimore 6 and four years ago. Ray get a vasectomy. A lot of pro athletes should ala Mr. Cromartie. I didn’t like this article stating it is a norm for athletes. Anyway I understand him wanting to check on this, but he looked fine with her on the Documentary Ray Lewis: A football life.
