Braylon Edwards, Nik Pace Child Support Lawsuit

The New York Post reports that New York Jets wide receiver Braylon Edwards is the father of "America's Next Top Model" finalist Nik Pace's child, and that Pace is now suing Edwards for as much as $70,000 in monthly child support payments.

According to the article, when Pace gave birth in July, the Jets receiver filed to be recognized as the father in Georgia, where the child was born. Pace responded by suing Edwards in New York, with her lawyer Raoul Felder claiming that the Georgia filing was a "cold, calculated act to pay less money" because Georgia is "traditionally less generous with child support payments." The Post has more.

Edwards was unexpectedly traded from Cleveland to New York in October, and he has since memorably dropped a pass after it bounced off his face mask. The Jets host the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.
