Phillips was in court Thursday morning against Danielle Dalusio, with whom he fathered a child in 2006. Dalusio is asking for more child support -- receiving $5,000 a month -- and stricter visitation rights. This is because, as Dalusio alleges, Phillips has seen his four-year-old daughter a total of five days.
A judge set a child-support hearing for August and custody hearing for November to determine daughter Micole's future with Phillips.
Phillips has one more year left on his four-year, $27 million contract with the Reds and is hitting .294/.351/.469 with 12 home runs in 405 plate appearances. The 29-year-old was named to his first All-Star Game, which takes place Tuesday.
