MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich., Dec. 18 (UPI) -- Detroit Lions center Dominic Raiola owes his former mistress $14,526 in back child support, court records show.

Raiola had a longstanding affair with Andrea Yee, who gave birth to a son in February 2007, an affidavit of parentage shows. Raiola, who signed a four-year extension with the Lions in 2009 worth $20 million with $9 million guaranteed, agreed to pay Yee the $14,526 each month, the Detroit News said Monday. Macomb County Circuit Court documents filed by Yee's attorney allege Raiola hasn't made November or December payments.

Raiola and his wife Yvonne met in high school and she gave birth to their third child shortly after Raiola's son with Yee was born. The News said Raiola has never publicly acknowledged the relationship with Yee or the out-of-wedlock child.

Team officials couldn't be reached to comment and Yee's lawyer declined to comment, the newspaper said.
