Evander Holyfield In Contempt For Defaulting On More Than $500,000 In Child Support
It’s hard to keep track when you have 12 children with 6 different women.
The Georgia Department of Human Services filed a lawsuit against the retired pugilist on behalf of his 18-year-old daughter, Emani, whom he had originally owed nearly $373,000 in child support.
But according to court documents cited by TMZ, that amount has increased to just under $564,000. After being held in contempt by a Georgia judge, the 49-year-old was ordered to immediately start paying $2,950 a month.
In response to the order, Holyfield shelled out $17,700 up front, reducing his total debt to $546,201.
But that was not the end of Holyfield’s troubles. According to the TMZ report, the judge also ordered that a percentage of the boxing great’s income be earmarked to pay down his debt.
