The judge said that Shaw would need to work three or four full-time jobs to even come close to paying the child support he owes. Shaw says his criminal record prevents him from finding a job. When a reporter from WTVF-TV Nashville asked him how he plans on earning money, he said good luck could save him someday.
“I’m just hoping one day I might get lucky,” Shaw said. “I might scratch off the numbers or something. I play the hell out of Tennessee lottery. I mean, I literally do. I play the number tickets, scratch-offs. I don’t block my blessing. Somebody out there may be like, ‘Listen. This is a guy that has really changed his life.’ Somebody will give me a chance.”
As for having more kids, Shaw says he’s done; he plans of getting a vasectomy. But he speaks with no shame when discussing his large family.
“I love my kids and I can care less about what anyone thinks about it,” he said. He added that they will help his legacy live on. “I’ll be sure we’ll be here for years and years to come.”
Let’s just hope their future does not reflect that of their father’s current state of affairs.
