See the report from @hoopsbank on Twitter below.
According to the Tweet, PJ Washington will be dishing out $200,000 every month to support his child for the next 18 years. While athletes and celebrities paying child support to exes in large sums has happened for a long time, there are certain circumstances in this particular case that has drawn attention from the internet world.
Social media was quick to scrutinize the news and add context that included clips and comments from Washington's baby-mother and ex-wife, Brittany Renner.
See some responses with a video of Renner speaking and a comment from her account on Instagram below.
In the video, Renner is apparently saying, "So if y'all really wanna try to come up off a check, off a man - you could just f*%! an athlete. They're really down" as she chuckles. A response to an Instagram comment also shows Renner recognizing the sentiment provided on a post.
Take what you will from what Renner said and commented here, but Twitter wasn't done voicing their thoughts.
While the description of Renner's auto-biography details a journey along her own life, the above Twitter user described it as, "... a book, on how to sleep with famous athletes and rappers". Another Twitter user pointed out that Renner has been involved with other famous athletes in the past.

Not to get off-track with her past relationships, the back-story for Renner and Washington's own relationship adds to social media's reason for scrutinizing the child-support payments. Many online pointed out that Washington was 18-years-old, while Renner was 27-years-old when the two first got together.
Aside from the circumstances of the two forming a relationship, there are massive financial implications for both parties involved. One Twitter user broke down the numbers on how the payments would affect the NBA player's income.
