And so it should come as no surprise that the woman formerly identified as Roddy White's girlfriend Stacey Hott would expect Roddy to cough up some change to take care of their child. While their relationship didn't really work out, the two did have a child together, and a child support negotiation took place. White filed papers in December, 2011 acknowledging paternity to the child, but was not prepared to pay the full amount Hott demanded in her court request.
in December, 2011, Hott filed legal documents against White to request child support stating that White "is a professional athlete capable of providing generous support for the minor child commensurate with his earnings.' In February, 2012, the support suit was settled for $3,200 a month, as well as White paying for Hott's legal fees and taking out a significant life insurance policy naming their son as the beneficiary.
Stacey Hott has been working for a national bank chain in Atlanta since 2006 and originally hails from San Leandro, California. While she's probably doing pretty well for herself, White is also making roughly $695,000 a month (back of the napkin math based on his 6 year $50M deal - and yes I know all about guaranteed, incentives, and bonuses), so $3,200 seems like a very conservative support figure. I guess you can hand it to Hott for not chasing every cent, and simply ensuring her son is provided for.
When doing "research" on Asante Samuel's wife Jeniva Barrett I stumbled onto (ok, maybe I stalked) her facebook page and came across an interesting tidbit. Mrs. Samuel, Jeniva is friends with someone name Suge Knight. After immediately clicking on his page to see if it was the Suge Knight I was saddened to learn it was not the one and only Suge Knight, but another one and only Suge Knight who had nothing to do with TuPac's murder (allegedly). Seriously though can you image having that name. What type of street cred do you think comes with having the name Suge Knight? I want to friend the guy just to have him on my list of friends.
What were we talking about? Oh yeah, Asante - almost picked off the game clincher from Eli in 42 - Samuel and his wife Jeniva. Asante and Jeniva were married in 2012, most likely during the spring/summer when Asante wasn't playing. The now corner for the Atlanta Falcons has four kids although we are not positive they are all with Jeniva (but we believe that to be the case). The earliest picture we have of the couple goes back to 2009 but we think they have been together a lot longer than that.
For those that did not know Asante has a record company called Deepside Entertainment. If you don't think this label is going somewhere then my friend you have not seen this video.
There seems to be a developing trend of reality TV contestants (is that what they're called?) jumping from one star or athlete to another. A woman who only goes by the name Cashmere, originally earned her fame by being on the VH1 show, For The Love of Ray-J, which we're assuming is a poor man's version of Flavor of Love. Cashmere apparently liked her time with a famous guy as shortly after the show ended, she was rumored to have been hooking up with San Francisco 49er's Tight End Vernon Davis.
The two split earlier in 2012, and Cashmere did what she did best,... made a quick jump to another superstar. This time, we're hearing that it's Falcons DE John Abraham who might be calling Cashmere his girlfriend. Rumors are flying that Abraham and Cashmere hooked up earlier this fall, but have no further information if they're still together (or honestly ever were)
We'll admit upfront that this story has virtually nothing to do with John Abrham's girlfriend Cashmere, but it's interesting nonetheless. The NFL's active leader in career sacks had a strange arrest in September of 2012 when he was arrested for refusing to leave the scene that had been roped off by police. Atlanta PD had sectioned off an area where a woman was threatening suicide by jumping from a building when Abraham was asked to leave. After refusing to leave the scene, he was arrested, booked and released on $7,000 bond.
