Cam Newton and Kia Proctor have had a hard journey together. The former couple was building a family and seemed to be on their way to happily ever after until things went left. Cam has now moved on, and Kia wants what she is owed after years of living by his side and raising his kids. She is taking him back to court and reporting that Newton has not held up his end of the agreement they set when they split in 2019. What is Kia suing him for, and why is does she want him held in contempt?
Kia Proctor was Cam Newton’s longtime girlfriend. She is also a model, dancer, and influencer. The pair met while she was dancing and began dating. They were first spotted out and about together in 2013 at the Kentucky Derby. Kia already had one child when she met Cam, daughter Shakira, which he began raising as his own. The couple began expanding their family, and between 2013 and 2020, they welcomed Camidas, Chosen Sebastian, Cashmere Saint Newton, and Sovereign-Dior Cambella.
For much of their relationship, Cam seemed to prolong marrying Kia, confessing that he never felt ready. He’s always sung her praises, even calling her the best thing to ever happen to him in a poem for his son. “Your mom is the best thing to happen to me / Yet I have failed in some regards / But I still love her unconditionally,” he said in an IG post. During an interview with Brittany Renner, he said that Kia changed a lot throughout the relationship, and he fell out of love. “We were both young. There was nothing, and still nothing I would never do for her. But at the same time, the person that she was when I met her, it wasn’t the person she was when I left her.” Cam also admits that while he stalled for marriage towards the end, Kia initially did not want to marry him either.

In 2019, Newton fathered a son with an IG model months before his fourth child with Proctor was born.
Cam Newton is part of the 54% of BM who will never marry. He should lead himself to some self control.
Things went south for the pair when Cam Newton fathered a child outside of their relationship with Instagram model La Reina Shaw. Shaw’s pregnancy overlapped with Proctor’s last pregnancy, and she welcomed her first child with Newton in 2020, a boy named Cesar. At the time, Cam says the situation was deeply embarrassing, but he pulled it together because he valued being a father so much and did not want his new son to feel excluded or unloved. “My longtime girlfriend at the time [Proctor], you know, we had a family. And I made a mistake, I hurt her, and I jeopardized our family at that time, and I had a child outside of our relationship,” he confessed during an interview.
Newton did right by Shaw as well, putting her in an apartment above his restaurant and helping her raise Cesar and her son from a previous relationship. “It is embarrassing to talk about, but everybody don’t really wanna talk about real situations in life, and that molded me. I just stopped caring what people thought about it because I come home, and I have a due diligence to be the best father that I can possibly be.”
Unfortunately, Newton is not living up to his end of the bargain. The NFL star was reportedly responsible for Kia Protors bills and utilities and had not been paying for over a year. Proctor is so fed up with it that she has taken him back to court and is holding him in contempt. Proctor is supposed to receive $14,268 per month in support from Cam. Newton has paid none of the bills and has refused to turn over any documentation confirming the status of his finances. This means any taxes, NFL contracts, or documentation regarding new business ventures. Proctor says her lawyers can confirm that Cam has started two new businesses without her knowledge. He also currently owes her $21,357 in utilities. The couple has yet to finalize their custody agreement, and Proctor is seeking full custody of their four children.
To be held in contempt means that Newton is in violation of a court agreement. According to Law sites, “contempt of court is used when an individual intentionally disobeys a court order. In family law, if someone is held in contempt, he/she has violated a child support, spousal support, domestic violence protective order, child custody, and/or visitation order, which must then be enforced.”
