EVANDER HOLYFIELD BEHIND IN CHILD SUPPORT PAYMENTS;HOUSE UNDER FORECLOSURE
The mother of Evander Holyfield’s 10-year-old son — one of 11 children he’s fathered — says the boxing icon has missed two child-support payments, filing a petition for contempt in the Fayette County Superior Court.Toi Irvin, who lives in Clayton County, said she was told by Holyfield’s representatives not to expect the payments — $6,000 total — for May and June.
“It wasn’t so much that he didn’t pay,” said Irvin’s attorney, Randy Kessler. “She was told they didn’t know if she would be paid at all.”
The former heavyweight champion appears to be in serious financial trouble. His palatial estate in Fayette County is under foreclosure, according to a legal notice that appeared in a local newspaper, and is set to be auctioned by Washington Mutual Bank on July 1. The home is worth an estimated $10 million.
Holyfield, 45, declined to comment on the child-support allegations and the foreclosure. He is also being sued by a Utah consulting company for failing to repay a $550,000 loan.
