This seems to be hustling backwards from Christina Lockhart. If Gordon can’t play in the NFL, then how does she think she is going to be able to pay child support?
Gordon at first didn’t believe the kid was his, but a paternity test proved he was the father and they have been battling in court ever since.
Here are the details.
Browns receiver Josh Gordon was in the midst of a heated and protracted child custody dispute in the days leading up to his abrupt departure from the team, court records obtained by WKYC.com show.
Those same court records allege an attorney representing the child’s mother threatened “to air sensitive information to the public in an effort to embarrass [Gordon],” who has been embroiled in the support dispute since 2015.
The latest dispute came during a hearing held July 18 as the child’s mother continued to pursue Gordon for child support for their 3-year-old daughter.
Two days later on July 20, a Cuyahoga County judge issued a temporary order requiring Gordon to begin making monthly support payments of $6,765 beginning Aug. 1.
The figure was derived by Gordon’s $800,000 salary and the woman’s $16,952 annual income, court records show.
In court papers, Holecek wrote of Gordon’s inability to make the Aug. 1 payment.
“In fact, [Gordon] is not working, and according to his contract with the Cleveland Browns, he would not receive his first regular paycheck of the season until Sept. 9, 2018, if everything goes as planned.”
Holecek noted that Gordon would have been due a per diem, had he appeared with the team during training camp.
“However, because [Gordon] is missing training camp to pursue treatment, such income is in doubt.”
No word on if this is why Gordon decided to stay away from Browns training camp, but I am sure it doesn’t help. The judge is considering putting Gordon in jail if he doesn’t pay.
