Hearts are aflutter for hunky The Bachelor star Juan Pablo Galavis as he begins to hand out roses to hopeful wives-to-be, but documents obtained by The National Enquirer expose that the single father who touts his strong relationship with his daughter is actually a deadbeat dad.
According to his official Bachelor bio, Juan Pablo, 32, resigned from his professional soccer career with Miami FC in 2008 after receiving the life-changing news that his then-girlfriend, Latina actress Carla Rodriguez, was pregnant.
But The Enquirer has uncovered court documents that show the blue-eyed heartthrob was ordered by a judge to pay back child support in May 2011 – more than two years after his daughter was born!
The Florida Department of Revenue’s Child Support Enforcement Program slapped Juan Pablo with an income deduction order, requiring employers to automatically deduct $243.94 per month for child support, plus $49.00 per month for retroactive child support until the outstanding balance of $3,574.57 was paid.
“Juan Pablo has been hoping that news of his court-ordered child support didn’t get out because he doesn’t want ‘Bachelor’ fans finding out he’s not the perfect father he portrays himself to be,” a source revealed.
For more exclusive details about the documents and what they show Juan Pablo owed pick up the latest issue of the National Enquirer on newsstands Thursday.
