Freida Bosh, the mother of two-time NBA champion Chris Bosh, was arrested in Texas for exploiting a disabled person, reports NBC Miami. Exploiting a disabled person is a third-degree felony.
Police had a warrant to search her house in DeSoto, Texas, a suburb of Dallas, on suspicion of drug distribution activity. The police report states that Bosh and a man named cheap jerseys China Johnathan Brown, who was also arrested, allowed a disabled person to live in the home, which is registered to Chris Bosh, for personal profit or gain.
Bosh allegedly forced the disabled person to pay a portion of his disability check as rent for her and Brown. The victim was also intimidated into participating in Brown’s drug distribution practices, according to the NBC report.
Bosh was reportedly okay with the practice because Brown provided her with free narcotics and marijuana.
Bosh, 33, is an 11-time All-Star who won two championships as a member of the Big Three (with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade) with the Miami Heat. He hasn ot played since the 2015-16 as he’s dealt with blood clots.
NBA star Chris Bosh missed his shot at evicting his mother from his DeSoto home Friday, a week after police raided the house in search of drugs.
He sued his mother in October to get her to leave his property — and he won — but she filed an appeal to flip the final ruling in her favor.
Former Miami Heat star Chris Bosh decided it’s time to let go of his palatial waterfront mansion.
Bosh and his wife, Adrienne, purchased the six-bedroom, 8.5-bathroom house for $12.33 million in 2010, shortly after Bosh (along with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, marking the beginning of the Big Three era) signed with the Heat. This summer, the Heat announced Bosh was waived due to blood clots hindering his ability to play.
The Boshes are selling the Miami Beach home for “personal reasons,” One Sotheby’s International Realty broker Diane Lieberman, who has the $18 million listing, told the Wall Street Journal.

The 11,709-square-foot “resort-style” home was custom built in 2009 and features high ceilings throughout, as well as a rather minimalist aesthetic that includes an entirely all-white décor in the living and entertaining rooms. There’s a sleek gourmet kitchen with white cabinetry and a breakfast island, as well as a formal dining room.
The lavish two-story home is equipped with an elevator and there’s also a guest house located on the 0.5-acre property.
Outside, there’s a courtyard garden, a covered summer kitchen as well as a heated infinity pool and spa.
It’s the end of an era in Miami for three of its most famous basketball players—once Bosh parts ways with this house, Wade will be the last of the Big Three to keep a home in Miami. James (who recently scooped up a second Brentwood mansion) sold his own three-story Florida property in 2015, and while Wade previously listed his own 12,000-square-foot pad, it’s now off the market, so perhaps there’s a chance he’ll be maintaining a presence there.
