We don’t mean to light Andre Rison’s ass on fire but Travis Henry should be glad that Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez isn’t around. She’d have him in her “No Scrubs” sights after hearing his story about being broke cause he’s got nine children by nine different baby mamas.
Talk about baby mama drama. Henry’s child support issues are overtaking his indictment on cocaine trafficking charges. Mike Tierney of the The New York Times refers to Henry’s baby-making skills as “prolific” and indeed they are.
Attending the annual N.F.L. rookie symposium as a 2001 draft pick of the Buffalo Bills, Henry watched a skit that dramatized the repercussions of imprudent sexual activity. It might as well have been geared toward him.
Henry laughed through the sketch. “I thought, ‘That ain’t ever going to happen to me,’ ” he said.
Henry blames his lack of a father figure as well as the gold digger tendencies of the mothers for his situation. He insists that he loves his children but can’t afford to take care of them due to his current situation. He’s looking at 10 to life for the drug case and claims he can’t keep up with the child support payments. Unfortunately for him, the law doesn’t agree. Even Shawn Kemp is breathing a sigh of relief that he’s not in Henry’s situation.
