As a former contestant on America's Next Top Model, Nik Pace had to deal with the self-serving, obnoxious attitude of Tyra Banks.
But that's nothing compared to her battle with New York Jets wide receiver Braylon Edwards. Both sides acknowledge the NFL star is the father of Pace's young son - but Pace is suing Edwards for $70,000 per month in child support payments.
Sounds like Edwards could use some fatherly advice from fellow wideout Hank Baskett.
Upon learning he knocked Pace up, Edwards filed in Atlanta to be recognized as the father. However, she has taken the case to New York. Said her lawyer to The New York Post:
"Braylon had tried to get the case litigated in Georgia because they are traditionally less generous with child support payments. It's a cold, calculated act to pay less money.
"But we had the case dismissed in Georgia and moved [it] to New York because this is where Nik lives. We served Braylon in the past week. He can run, but he can't hide."
Based on his NFL-leading number of drops in 2008, Edwards also can't catch.
According to the player's lawyer, Pace is the greedy one. Randy Kessler told the newspaper:
"Braylon is a proud father who has loved and supported his child since before he was born. He filed in June to declare himself the legal father and she objected."
Meanwhile, Edwards is focused on a different kind of berth: as the year comes to an end, he and the Jets are fighting for their playoff lives.
