First-ever case is a $51K victory for children who never lived with a rich ($60M!) parent


The Kentucky Supreme Court ordered NBA star Kenneth Faried to pay $4,250 a month child support for a daughter he fathered while playing at Morehead State University.

The 26-year-old Denver Nuggets forward has been pulling down $60 million over a four-year contract extension signed in 2014, according to The Courier-Journal. But he argued through his attorney that it was unfair to require him to pay for a lifestyle his daughter does not have.

The CJ says it was the first case of its kind in Kentucky. Faired’s daughter, Kyra, now 5 years old, lives with her mother in Owingsville, Ky., where her mother earns $1,050 a month at a gas station. The verdict, at $4,250 a month, would cost the player $51,000 a year.
