Days after Chicago rapper Chief Keef caught heat for allegedly getting sued over baby mama drama with a middle school student, new reports claim the teenager is older than reported.
According to reports, the woman seeking child support from Keef is actually in her late teens.
“TMZ is all rumors and I went and checked out the court filings and found out she’s in college now,” Chicago reporter Mark Konkol revealed in an interview. “She’s only two months younger than Chief Keef and it wasn’t as scandalous as everyone said it was. [Was he seeing a girl in middle school?] No, that’s not the situation at all.” (“Morning Riot”)
Earlier in the week, Keef got slammed for his alleged legal issues with a middle school ex-girlfriend.
17-year-old rapper Chief Keef is already getting a head start on his baby mama drama — in fact, he’s so far ahead of the game … he allegedly impregnated a girl who’s STILL IN MIDDLE SCHOOL … and now, she’s suing for child support. The girl filed the petition for child support in Chicago, claiming Keef — real name Keith Cozart — fathered a baby daughter with her back in 2011. The girl’s exact age is unclear, but according to the docs, she currently attends a Chicago middle school — meaning she was .. at MOST … in 8th grade when she conceived the child, but could have been in 6th grade. Cozart — who has since worked with Kanye West, Young Jeezy, and Rick Ross — was 15 at the time. (TMZ)
Despite the newest update, the Interscope Records rapper could reportedly still spend time behind bars just for having sex under the age of 17.
In Illinois, it is considered a misdemeanor for two people under the age of 17 to have sex … even if they’re in a consensual relationship. When both parties are between 9 and 17 years old, the older person commits a crime called “criminal sexual abuse.” Punishment for the crime includes a max sentence of one year in jail … and a requirement to register as a sex offender for ten years — but in reality, these cases are almost never prosecuted. The most likely scenario in which Keef would face a judge is if the girl’s parents press charges — but if that hasn’t already happened, it probably won’t. The girl is suing Keef for an undisclosed amount of child support, including health insurance and other medical expenses. Calls to both Keef’s people and the girl’s family were not returned. (TMZ)
Last week, Chief appeared in court and received 60 days of juvenile detention for a probation violation.
It’s official: 17-year-old Chicago rapper Chief Keef is heading to jail over violating the terms of his parole. According to DNAinfo Chicago, Keef — whose real name is Keith Cozart — was sentenced to 60 days of juvenile detention for his probation violation in St. Charles, Ill., on Wednesday. Idris “Peeda Pan” Abdul Wahid, part of Cozart’s management team, told Complex that, “overall, I think it’s the best decision to satisfy everybody.” (Huffington Post)
