NFL free agent Cam Newton is being accused by his ex-girlfriend Kia Proctor of not paying the utility bill for the home where she lives with their four kids. And now she’s taking him to court.
According to Radar, Proctor has filed court papers accusing the former ex-Patriots player of being in contempt of a court order.
The quarterback is currently a free agent. He is the NFL’s leader in quarterback rushing touchdowns and second in quarterback rushing yards.
He is one of four African-American quarterbacks to win NFL MVP. Newton has a net worth of $75 million, plus lucrative endorsements with companies like Gatorade, Under Armour, Dannon and Beats by Dre. He also owns Fellaship in Atlanta, an exclusive intimate lounge and restaurant.
Newton and Proctor were together for about seven years; they split when Newton had a baby with Instagram model La Reina Shaw.
The two went public with their split in March 2021, and since then have been in and out of court over child support issues, among other things.
They share sons Camidas, Chosen Sebastian, and Cashmere Saint Newton, along with daughter Sovereign-Dior Cambella. (Proctor has another daughter named Shakira from a previous relationship.)
Now Proctor has asked a judge to find the football player in contempt of court because he has not delivered on the temporary child support agreement under which he has to maintain the household and the bills associated with the household. He is ordered to pay $14,268 monthly in support and cover the power, water and cable bills.
According to Proctor, from September 2020 to July 2022, she incurred $5,500 in cable expenses, $6,600 for the Internet, $4,725 in power charges and another $4,532 for gas. This all totals $21,357. She wants him to pay up as well as add on an additional $2,000 for her legal expenses.
Also, Proctor said Cam hasn’t produced all records in their custody case and failed to pay utilities for her home as he had agreed to in their temporary agreement, according to court filings.
The former couple has been battling over a permanent child support and custody agreement.
Proctor even hired a forensic expert, whom she said found that Cam had two new entities that he failed to inform the court about.
For his part, Newton filed a lawsuit in 2019 against his ex for paternity and asked for child support and custody to be set by the court.
Cam also wants joint custody with visitation, while Proctor has sought primary custody of their four kids.
