Atlanta Falcons star Roddy White is asking a judge to block his baby mama’s move to New York. The superstar has two children with Marangelis Marrero and claims the move would violate their custody agreement according to TMZ.
In court docs obtained by TMZ Sports, White says, “It is not in the children’s best interest that they be allowed to relocate out of state.”
In fact, Roddy’s so upset … he wants the judge to empower him with “final decision-making authority regarding the children.”
One might think the geographical distance is the reason White doesn’t want his kids to move to NYC but according to sources it’s all about money. White who makes $330,000 a month only pays $6000 in child support. That’s a large amount of money but in NYC with more favorable child support laws, Marrero could reportedly receive much more of White’s six figure salary.
Of course Marrero’s attorney denies that is the reason for the move.
But Marrero’s attorneys tell us that’s not the case — she simply wants to move BACK to NYC (where she’s lived in the past) because she likes it there. She also insists the move won’t occur until AFTER the kids complete their current school year.
We’re also told Marrero gave White notice about the move “a while ago” in an effort to be as courteous as possible.
For now the judge has yet to rule but it will be interesting to see what he decides.
