A Miami-Dade County judge issued a warrant for the arrest of the ex-NFL star Antonio Brown for allegedly failing to pay child support for one of his six children.
According to information from court documents published by TMZ, the former football star evaded payments he was supposed to make to his ex-partner, Wiltrice Jackson. However, the report indicates that the athlete would only have to pay $30,000 to be released, which he apparently has already done.

Brown makes the receipt public
After the news came to light, Brown used his official Instagram account to show that he already made the child support payment. The photo showed that he paid the exact amount of $33,260.58 to Florida Child Support.
"Everyone want to see me fail that’s why I have to be Great!!!" he commented underneath the image of the payment.
Other legal issues
The 34-year-old has already faced several legal problems. In recent years he has had three allegations of sexual assault by his trainer, all of which were settled out of court.
In 2022, a warrant was also issued for Brown's arrest for allegedly being involved in a domestic violence incident with the mother of his children in Tampa. However, the order was withdrawn after the victim recanted her story.
