Miami Heat star Chris Bosh desperately asked a Maryland court last week to temporarily modify its custody judgment so that his two-year-old daughter can watch him play in the NBA Finals.
Bosh and his ex-girlfriend, Allison Mathis, are engaged in an on-going custody battle but have a temporary custody order pending resolution of the case. Pursuant to the temporary order, they share custody of the little girl.
Bosh’s motion asks the court to modify its temporary order so “[Bosh’s daughter] is able to share in what, to date, is the pinnacle of Bosh’s professional career, and possibly a once in a lifetime opportunity.” Attached to his motion, Bosh included an email he had previously sent to Mathis, stating, “If we can make this happen please respond asap and I will set up the arrangements for pick up/drop off without you even having to lift a finger.”
According to his motion, Mathis never responded. She reportedly is not willing to consent to any modification. Bosh is reportedly supposed to get custody of his daughter again on June 11 under the terms of the existing order. Game 6 of the NBA Finals will be played on June 12.
