We all know that the Queen of England has mad hops, but it still surprises me that an NBA player would have a daughter named after her. But you’ll forgive the Miami Heat’s Mario Chalmers: after all, he just found out he had a daughter. Miami New Times:
According to Jose Lambiet at Gossip Extra, Chalmers recently agreed to pay Queen Elizabeth’s mother $2,600-a-month in child support. The Queen’s mother, whose name is probably not Anne Boleyn, is apparently a student who was only pulling in $800-a-month. That’s not the kind of money to be raising a Queen on.
She’ll also be receiving $12,800 in back paid child support.
But that’s still less than the combined total per month Chalmers pays for a chef ($1,500) and a bodyguard ($2,000).
And let’s not jump to the conclusion that Queen Elizabeth Chalmers was named after the current Queen of England. She could be named after Queen Elizabeth I, who was a total badass in every way. Just ask the Spanish.
