Sheree Whitfield is getting all of her due in child support as a family court has ruled in her favor. TMZ reported that the former ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ star was awarded $75,000 in back pay for support that estranged husband Bob Whitfield failed to give in the course of 38 months. Bob was ordered by a judge to pay Sheree all $75,000 before November 11, 2012 or face harsh consequences.
Bob previously asked the courts to lower his child support payments from $2,142 per month to an undisclosed amount due to his inability to pay his ex-wife just over $25,000 annually for their child. The NFL player was denied such adjustment and ordered to pay Sheree the amount originally agreed upon.
In addition to paying Sheree a lump sum for missed payments, Bob will also be required to give his ex-wife $1,000 per month in child support for one year. Thereafter, the support payments will be $2,142.
Sheree and Bob are parents to son Kairo,16, and daughter Kaleigh,13. Ms. Whitfield also has an older daughter named Tierra Fuller.
