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?
