Judge Orders Mario Chalmers Child Support Increase To $10K Per Month


Miami Heat guard Mario Chalmers lifestyle is responsible for his baby’s mama child support upgrade. Brittany Burrough, the mother of Chalmers’ daughter, Queen Elizabeth, filed court documents last year requesting an increase in child support claiming Chalmers’ lifestyle had become “grossly lavish” after signing a new contract in 2011 – 3 years- $12 million – which increased his monthly salary from roughly $70,000 to $400,000.

The judge agreed with her;

Chalmers currently spends roughly $22,000 per month on housing, $10,000 per month on his personal assistant, $5,000 per month on vacations, and $1,600 per month on clothing and various other expenses.

Meanwhile, Burrough, Queen Elizabeth’s primary caregiver, lives with her sister, was recently laid off, and earns only $1,000 a month. Not exactly the same league.

On top of that, Burrough claimed she wanted to get additional education (for her sake as well as for her daughter’s) but she had neither the time nor money to do so. The documents also show Chalmers rarely even sees QE.

Considering all this, the judge ruled it was only fair to give Burrough a massive raise in monthly child support.

Chalmers was also ordered to pay retroactive child support from the date Burrough filed her request for additional child support: a total of $155,000.

Chalmers also has a son, Zachiah A’mario Johnson. It’s good to be Queen.
