Chris Bosh's Ex Won't Let His Daughter Watch Her Dad in the Finals

Custody and child support disputes between Chris Bosh and his ex-girlfriend Allison Mathis concerning their 2-year-old daughter Trinity are nothing new, but even Mathis' lawyers have said she hopes their daughter can have a good relationship with her dad. Oddly, however, TMZ is reporting that Bosh is now begging a judge to allow Trinity to attend an NBA Finals game over Mathis' objections.

The estranged pair split custody of their daughter, but right now she's in Mathis' care. Bosh, understandably, wants his daughter present during the Finals and according to TMZ is asking the judge in their on-going custody dispute to allow Trinity to attend the remaining games.

TMZ obtained an emergency motion Bosh filed with a Maryland court last week -- asking the judge to temporarily alter their agreement so "[Bosh's daughter] is able to share in what, to date, is the pinnacle of Bosh's professional career, and possibly a once in a lifetime opportunity."
TMZ also obtained an email Bosh had written to Mathis asking for more visits with his daughter before the Finals. It's pretty personal stuff, but you can read it here. TMZ's sources say Mathis doesn't want to alter the agreement, regardless of Bosh's trip to the Finals. However, regardless of the legal wrangling, Bosh is scheduled to take custody of Trinity on June 11, just a day before Game 6. So, Trinity will at least be present for one of her father's games.
