Evander Holyfield has reportedly requested an Atlanta-based court alter his child support payments to ex-wife Dr. Janice Itson. T.K Stewart of BoxingScene.com has background:
Itson was Holyfield’s second wife. The couple had one child together, a son, Elijah Jedidiah Holyfield. But during the time they were married, Holyfield fathered two other children out of wedlock with two different women.
The pair went through a very messy divorce and Holyfield, despite his own marital infidelity, requested a paternity test be administered to prove that Elijah was indeed his child. At the time of their divorce, Holyfield’s net worth was estimated to be $90 million.
The couple was married in 1996 and divorced less than four years later.
Stewart reports today on the alleged “spending habits by Ms. Itson” that led to Holyfield attempting to renegotiate his 2000 divorce settlement with Itson. The claims, according to Stewart, came from a, “source close to the Holyfield family.” (So consider the source.)
