First we had the news drop in earlier in the week that Matt Leinart was a deadbeat dad — if you can believe his former girlfriend and baby’s mother, Brynn Cameron. But then again, after hearing what this chick reportedly wants, she just might be out to make him look bad. Because this report is just insane. From the always reliable TMZ:
TMZ has learned that the NFL pretty boy is locked in a raging legal fight with his ex-girlfriend, Brynn Cameron, over the couple’s 9-month-old son Cole. According to sources close to the case, Brynn wants Matt to hand over more than $30,000 per month! That’s a ton of jack for a 21-year-old living with her parents! According to sources close to the case, Leinart’s pissed — having already bought her a car, as well as voluntarily giving her around six grand a month.
Sources tell TMZ that the former USC star already “comes back to L.A. once a week, every week, to see the baby,” but he wants a schedule where he can see the kid in Arizona as well. Unlike most pro athlete dads who have kids out of wedlock, we’re told Matt is an engaged father who wants to be in his son’s life.
Hey, I’ll be first to say that Leinart screwed up big time by letting one slip past the goalie, but $30,000/month is just highway robbery. Think about it. 30 grand a month? That’s 360,000 bucks a year just to be some kids mom. And she was in college eating top ramen and dorm food when they were dating; the argument that she grew accustomed to a lifestyle would be a joke. Like my buddy Andy says, if this chick is trying to make a comeback to the basketball courts, collegiate athletics shouldn’t allow it based on the type of income she’ll be pulling. This could be absolute robbery.
