The mother of NBA star Chris Bosh’s 3-year-old daughter, Allison Mathis, 32, has finally broken her silence and is speaking out about some people’s belief that she’s just another professional athlete’s “baby mama” who got pregnant for the sole purpose of child support.
In her first interview since their daughter Trinity was born three years ago, Mathis says she doesn’t understand why Bosh is ignoring her pleas for help after she lost her job last month, placing her on the edge of foreclosure and public assistance.
Worse: She says Bosh has spent upward of $2 million on a coterie of lawyers to keep his child support payment at $2,600 a month – millions that even the Orange County judge handling their case said would be better spent on his daughter.
“Chris really wanted us to have a baby, that why he had me go to a fertility doctor,” Mathis exclusively told Gossip Extra at the downtown Orlando office of her lawyer, Jane E. Carey.
“I followed the treatment and we eventually became pregnant. He was very happy when Trinity was born.”

Mathis believed Bosh would marry her when Trinity was born. But she and Bosh broke up when she was six months pregnant, and she eventually moved to Orlando to be with her family.
But Bosh married Adrienne Williams last year, and the couple had their first child last month.
