One word: WOW! An Atlanta judge has ordered famed attorney Willie Gary to $28,000 a month to the children he conceived with his mistress (a.k.a. jumpoff). That's a lot of damn money! And I'm a bit surprised about it all. A couple of years ago, as a public relations specialist at Jacksonville's number one successful black PR firm, I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Gary when he chose that particular firm to orchestrate the first Willie Gary Football Classic between Edward Waters College and Shaw University at Alltel Stadium. And I must say the man is all about his business. Now, I just can't understand how he could be stupid as to put himself in the position he's currently in.

When Atlanta resident Diana Gowins gave birth to twins fathered by a married multimillionaire, she felt her children deserved the finer things in life. The father, high-profile Florida-based attorney Willie Gary, gave his former lover money for the twins, but when he felt she was misusing the child support, he took her to court in November 2005. Gary convinced Fulton County Superior Court Judge Cynthia Wright to reduce his payments from $28,000 a month to $5,000.

However, the Georgia Court of Appeals issued a decision Friday siding with the mother, tossing out the judge's order to reduce the father's payments.

"It's a big decision," Gowins' attorney, Randy Kessler, said Tuesday after receiving a copy of the appellate court's ruling. Kessler said he faxed a letter to Gary on Tuesday afternoon demanding that he pay about $300,000 to Gowins by Friday to get caught up and then resume monthly payments of $28,000, the amount he initially agreed to pay. Although $28,000 a month may sound high, Kessler said, Gary makes more than $13 million a year, so his payments are comparable to a man with an annual salary of $130,000 paying $280 a month for their twins.

"He agreed to it," Kessler said. "He can afford it. He can't just change his mind."
