Former Chargers cornerback Antonio Cromartie has paid past-due child-support obligations and no longer will have to appear in a San Diego court next week to answer questions about his financial situation. The appearance was taken off the court calendar yesterday after Cromartie paid support owed one of the mothers of his seven children, her attorney said. “Everything’s fine,” attorney Steven Bishop said. Cromartie, 25, has seven children by six women in five states. He had been past due on his support of them by around $25,000 to $50,000, Bishop said. Cromartie’s financial situation improved after he was traded two weeks ago to the New York Jets, who reportedly advanced him $500,000 to help him meet his obligations. NFL players normally don’t collect their salaries until the season starts, but the Jets gave him the money upfront as part of the $1.7 million owed him next season in the last year of his five-year, $12.5 million contract. Cromartie had been scheduled for a judgment debtor’s exam Tuesday in San Diego. It could have been embarrassing for him because he likely would have faced questions about why he hasn’t paid the support, which assets he owns and where those assets are. — San Diego Union-Tribune
