With fame and fortune, athletes will often find themselves surrounded by women. Most of the time, athletes live a life that is centered around their sport, but many athletes also find the time to make the most of their celebrity status. Throughout sports, there are some athletes that have had a shocking amount of children and frequently by many different women. This ability to score both on and off the field of play does not always work out best for the athlete, however, as many of them find their fortune diminishing with monthly child support payments for their offspring.
10. Shawn Kemp – 7 Children With 6 Women
Shawn Kemp was as famous for his off-court antics as he was for the ferocious dunks he’d throw down on hapless defenders, and these off-court antics include a reported seven children with six different women. His eldest son, Shawn Kemp Jr., currently plays for the University of Washington, and it is hoped that he possesses the same on-court skills as his father, but perhaps not the off-court issues that plagued much of his career. Kemp had all kinds of legal trouble throughout his career, including investigation for drug possession, having a firearm, and being arrested for misdemeanor marijuana possession in 2006. The six-time NBA All-Star attempted numerous times to make it back into the NBA, perhaps because of a struggle to make so many child support payments each month.
