Kyrie Irving is faced with more drama shortly after the Kehlani cheating rumors surfaced on the Internet. Apparently, the mother of his child, Andrea Wilson, is upset over their financial agreement.
She recently told a judge that she wants to change the terms of her child support agreement with Kyrie Irving. Wilson revealed that she wants sole responsibility for how the child support money is handled without any input from the Cleveland Cavaliers star.
According to Bossip, Kyrie Irving isn’t sold on this new agreement.
“Andrea filed court papers asking a judge to enforce a new paternity agreement between the pair, which would give her sole control over how baby Azurie’s $4,500 a month in child support is spent. Andrea’s new proposed paternity agreement would also require the NBA to take the $4,500 a month child support directly out of his salary, according court docs filed in Tarrant County, Tx. District Court. It also puts it in writing that Kyrie is solely responsible for the child support,” the report revealed.
The parents previously signed an agreement back in 2015, stating that Irving would pay $4,500 per month for the child. They also agreed to have Irving pay for additional expenses related to their child such as doctor visits, health insurance, extracurricular activities, and schooling. Understandably, Irving doesn’t want to help cover any of Wilson’s bills unrelated to the baby.
But Andrea Wilson is not done. She also wants the payments to come directly out of the basketball player’s paycheck. Kyrie reportedly made $17 million this year.
Irving is not agreeing with this new settlement, though. He believes that it violates his relationship with his daughter.
“The mediated settlement agreement offends Kyrie Irving’s constitutional right to a relationship with his child, and should be set aside,” Kyrie’s lawyer said in court documents.
The professional athlete was already involved in online drama with former girlfriend Kehlani. The R&B singer became a hot topic on Twitter when fans assumed that she was cheating on Irving with her ex-boyfriend PartyNextDoor.
Just days after the Grammy-nominated singer revealed that she attempted suicide; the NBA star took to Twitter to address the cheating rumors. In a series of now-deleted tweets captured by The Shade Room in the Instagram post below, Irving claimed that he and Kehlani were not dating when PartyNextDoor posted a photo on Instagram of himself and the singer in bed together.
On Tuesday, March 29, Kyrie had nothing but “love and compassion” for his ex and her family, and hoped that they will recover from the stressful situation. He also told his fans that his main focus is the game he’s been playing all season.
“It’s been hard to see what’s been going on and not address the truth. I do not justify the picture or what dude did to try and spark all of this nonsense that could have been avoided, but me and Kehlani were not dating when the picture came out,” the 24-year-old basketball player wrote.
“It’s unfortunate that it’s received so much attention but it’s become bigger but of a post that was misunderstood,” he added.
Now it looks like Kyrie Irving is going to sit out the Cavaliers’ regular-season finale. According to reports, both Irving and teammate LeBron James will sit the regular-season finale against Detroit.
Kyrie also took full responsibility for the Cleveland Cavaliers’ struggles in a disappointing 105-102 loss to the Chicago Bulls last Saturday night. He was reportedly upset that he caused four turnovers, and only made five out of his 17 shots that he even texted LeBron to express concern over his recent performance. Going forward, fans can only hope Kyrie’s personal life won’t affect his professional life.
