The tall head claims he really lives in Texas.
What about that 12,000-square-foot crib with view on Biscayne Bay bought in 2010 for $12.5 million? You know the one. It’s got seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms and 20-foot ceilings, an infinity pool and an elevator.
Still, Bosh claims in court papers filed recently in Orlando, where he’s fighting a big-money battle with his baby mama, that he really lives in a 1,900-square-foot house in a lower middle class suburb of Dallas – not on fancy North Bay Road in Miami Beach, Florida.
Texas property records show the digs in Desoto, Texas, are worth about $73,000 and located on a zero-lot line property.
Not really the kind of place that someone who makes $18 million a year from playing ball with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade would occupy!
So, what’s going on? Isn’t Bosh proud to be a Floridian?
Bosh, 28, is trying to hold on to an order from a judge in his native Dallas that he pay $2,600-a-month for the little girl he had with former live-in girlfriend Allison Mathis.
Should he be declared a Florida resident, the now-married Bosh could be ordered to pay 3 percent of his monthly take home pay.
That’s about $30,000.
A judge in Orange County, Florida, has scheduled a hearing in late August to determine Bosh’s residency.
Said Mathis’ lawyer, Jane E. Carey: “He’s fighting like a dog to remain a Texas resident. It is just not true that he lives in Texas. Even his son was born (in May) in Miami.”
Bosh’s lawyer did not acknowledge emails requesting comments.
