Following his split from fitness model Brittany Renner, Charlotte Hornets player PJ Washington is putting some rumors regarding child support to rest.

The two only confirmed their relationship sometime last year, before revealing that they had a baby on the way in March. Their baby boy arrived in May, but rumors that they had split started to circulate as recently as last month. Their pregnancy reveal photoshoot has since been removed from their Instagrams, and in the wake of their presumed split, Washington wrote in a since-deleted tweet, “You was faking it along.”

TMZ points out that rumors have since circulated that Washington is expected to pay around $200,000 per month in child support to Renner. 

In a very simple tweet, Washington appeared to address the situation. “Stop the [cap emoji],” he wrote.

Stop the 🧢

Washington, who was the No. 12 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, has reportedly brought in $7.8 million in his NBA career so far and is expected to make $14 million over the next two seasons, per TMZ. If the rumors were true, which Washington seems to claim is not the case, he would be expected to give up $2.4 million of his salary each year, over 30 percent of his expected annual salary.

For what it’s worth, Renner has yet to comment on their breakup or the rumors regarding child support payments. All posts featuring Washington have since been scrubbed from her Instagram account.
