Financial info of Bears LB Briggs sought

An attorney says he wants detailed information about Chicago Bears star linebacker Lance Briggs' financial activities.

Attorney Enrico Mirabelli, who is representing Briggs' ex-girlfriend Brittini Tribbett, said the NFL player's personal finance information would offer insights into any child support payments Briggs is making to two other women, the Chicago Sun-Times said Thursday.

Mirabelli said his client would like Briggs to pay additional child support for their 1-year-old daughter, Nariana.

We're looking for Lance to support Nariana as he would if the child were living with him. We want Nariana to enjoy a lifestyle as any child whose father earns a substantial income might enjoy -- certainly nothing less than he provides for his other children, said Mirabelli, who alleges Briggs has two other children with two other women.

The Sun-Times said Briggs is playing under a $36 million, six-year contract with the Bears. The linebacker reportedly pays Tribbett temporary child support in the amount of $1,500 a week.
