Travis Henry with
nine kids in four states
The Broncos running back
Travis Henry reportedly with nine kids in four different states.
The running back for the Denver Broncos, Travis Henry,
could be the biggest payee of child support in the NFL. Henry
was ordered to pay $3,000 a month in child support for a boy in
Lithonia, Georgia, which he fathered three years ago. Travis and
the mother of his Georgia child have never been married.
The latest child support case of the
Broncos player prompted the AJC to pull out court records
showing that Travis Henry had fathered at least nine children
(by nine women) in four different states in the South. He is
paying child support to seven of them, falling behind on one of
the children and was forced to borrow money from a team mate to
catch-up. According to Henry's lawyer, the football player is
trying hard to be a good father to all of his children.
"A lot of stuff that's been put out
there isn't true, but I'm not going to get into that right now.
The important thing is I want to take care of my kids really and
truly. It's all good. People can judge me all they want, but
only God can judge me," Travis Henry said.
According to the Denver Post, Travis
Henry now holds the new "record", claiming that former NBA star
Shawn Kemp has seven children with six women and Derrick Thomas
of the Kansas City Chiefs, had seven children with five women.

bonuses. He was a third round draft pick in 2006 by the
Tennessee Titans, from which he was released in March. Travis
