Mother’s Day will not have the same meaning in the Bosh household.
Former Miami Heat star Chris Bosh is being sued by his mother, according to The Blast, for taking away her home.
Freida Bosh claims she thought documents she signed 13 years ago related to her divorce and transferred the deed to the family home in DeSoto, Texas, to her while removing the name of Noel Bosh, Chris’ father.
Instead, the documents handed over the home to Chris and now the 11-time NBA All-Star is attempting to evict her. Freida is seeking unspecified damages and asking the courts to void the deed transfer.
Freida, who claims Chris promised her she could remain in the home for the rest of her life, learned in August 2017 she didn’t own the home when she was contacted by Chris’ lawyer.
Chris Bosh denies the allegations and is trying to get the case thrown out of court.
Freida Bosh was arrested in December for allegedly allowing drugs to be trafficked out of the same home. DeSoto police raided the house and reportedly found large amounts of drug paraphernalia while executing the search warrant.
The case is pending.
Bosh, 34, spends most of his time in Los Angeles and is trying sell his Miami Beach home. Bosh recently dropped the price of the 12,368-square foot home more than $2 million, according to the Miami Herald. Originally listed at $18 million it now can be had for $15.95 million.
The home, built in 2009, includes six bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, and a guest house. Bosh purchased the home for $12.33 million in 2010, after he and LeBron James joined up with Dwyane Wade and led the Heat to four consecutive NBA Finals appearances and two titles, 2012, 2013.
Bosh has not played a game since Feb. 9, 2016, after developing blood clot issues a year earlier. He was waived by the Heat last July after an NBA doctor ruled in the Heat’s favor, agreeing with the organization that Bosh’s blood clot issues are considered a career-ending illness. This move was the final step for Miami in receiving cap relief from Bosh’s contract.
In December, Bosh said on The Full 48 podcast hosted by Bleacher Report that he had not ruled out playing again and won’t until “I’m officially done.” He would have to be cleared medically by the league to return and so far there has been no indication that will happen.
Bosh continues to draw on his five-year, $118 million contract he signed with the Heat in 2014. He made $25.3 million this past season and will make $26.8 million next season. The Heat are paying part of that salary while insurance is covering more than half. Bosh’s money no longer counts towards the Heat salary cap.
