NFL Star Ray Lewis Child Support Drama: Mother Hires Investigator to Find Hidden Money

ray-lewisThere is an old saying that is prominent in hip hop: “More money, more problems.”  No one knows this statement better than NFL superstar Ray Lewis.

Lewis has been fighting with the mother of his child to stop her from from digging deeper into his bank account.   Sharnika Kelly feels that Ray is hiding his money in order to keep the courts from taking it.  The woman even went to the trouble of hiring a forensic investigator to dig deeply into his finances.

Kelly is asking the court to dismiss the original child support agreement that she signed back in 2001 because she says that Ray never told the court exactly how much money he actually makes.  She is only getting $3500 per month, which does seem like a pittance relative to the multimillion dollar salary that NFL players are given every year.

At the age of 37, Lewis doesn’t have many years left in the NFL, but did make nearly $5 million dollars last year.   Some of us might expect that a man bringing home over $400,000 per month before taxes could spend a little bit more to take care of his child. But Sharnika might also want to learn that Ray’s money is not her money and child support is not mean to give her a lavish lifestyle that she never earned herself.

Stop having kids out of wedlock.
