Default Bosh Says He'll "Take care of responsibilities."

Bosh is being cast in U.S. court documents as a deadbeat father who broke up with his girlfriend when she was seven months pregnant, leaving her destitute and without medical care even as she fell ill.

Speaking to a crowd of reporters after the team practiced this morning, Bosh, as expected, wouldn't comment specifically on the allegations.

"All I can say is I'm going to take care of my responsibilities," he said.

"I ask everybody to respect my wish to keep everything private," he said.

"I love my daughter, I love myself (and) I respect her mother."

Why is this worse than Kidd? Having a kid is no crime, and he said he's taking care of his responsibilities. The whole thing about leaving her destitute and ill sounds amped up and meant to embarrass, and maybe get Bosh to settle out of court.

WTF is wrong with these guys?
I wish that just once, one of these jerk-offs would actually be the genuine nice guy they make themselves out to be. How could he say the loves his daughter and respects her mother if he's withholding child support? It's obvious that he's not keeping them in the lap of luxury if Ms. Mathis felt the need to sue.
It's time to show CB4 the door.
Couldn't this have come out last week? I just bought my son a Bosh jersey for fuck sakes.

Im not going to judge because no one really knows whats true so far, it does sound like Bosh has done something pretty terrible by not helping the kid. BUT, did she have a job at all when she lived with Chris or was she just riding his fortune?

Reading the court documents - the issue appears to be whether Maryland or Texas decides on what Bosh pays for support, not whether or not he pays support. But they try to make him look like a criminally insane individual. One aspect of that is that he was so callous as to make her completely dependent upon him by paying for everything while they were together. To me that rings some alarm bells on the BS meter at the very least. It could very well be that she is trying to stick the knife into him as much as she can, without taking any responsibility for problems that she could have been a party to herself.

Lets wait a few days and hear both sides before we start making any sort of judgements.
But what we know for sure is Bosh hit up his ex, got her pregnant, and DIPPED!

You guys are only hearing one side of the story and are so quick to judge. Wait till all the facts are out and then decide.

I'm not sure what dipped is - but they could have parted ways for any number of reasons. We know the pregnancy was planned. We know that she lived high on the hog. And then something happened to change all that. And that is what we do not know. He has not tried to avoid support, but rather wants Texas to decide on the parameters rather than Maryland, and again, we do not know why that is an issue with him.

Isn't that just standard procedure in these things?

Just read the whole thing.

I know its one side of the story, but Bosh is a jerk!

So the kid was planned, and I don't care what happened that caused the breakup, but the kid was born on November, (scorpio in the house!) and Bosh has seen her TWICE...both in January!

That's simply FUCKED UP.
