A judge recently ordered Denver Broncos running back Travis Henry to pay a $3,000-a-month child support payment on top of orders to provide child support to several children he fathered in other states, according to a report.
With a $25 million contract and a base monthly salary around $50,000, the payment isn't a huge hit, but it is to Henry's lifestyle and other child support payments, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Saturday.
Henry, 28, has fathered nine children by nine women in at least four Southern states and has been ordered by various judges to provide child support for seven of them, according to court records.
DeKalb Superior Court Judge Clarence Seeliger ordered the payment for a Georgia boy he fathered out of wedlock three years ago with Jameshia Beacham, now 29. Seeliger also ordered Henry to establish a $250,000 trust by next spring, according to the Journal-Constitution.
Shiel Edlin, Henry's lawyer, told the Journal-Constitution that to his knowledge the trust would be without precedent in Georgia. A quarter-million dollars is a lot of money, even for Henry, Edlin said. "He has some concerns and he's weighing his options."
Edlin said Henry wants to be a good parent. "I know these are a lot of kids, and there might be some questions about it," he said, "but he's a really committed father."
