Chicago rapper Chief Keef is earning some bad press as an ex-girlfriend is reportedly calling him out over not following through on child support payments.
According to reports, the 17-year-old rapper’s baby’s mother has sought out legal action over not being paid.
17-year-old Rapper Chief Keef has been stiffing his middle school-aged baby mama on child support … or so she claims, which is crazy ironic considering the guy rolls around with STACKS of cash in his pocket. As we reported, Keef allegedly fathered the child when he was just 15 and the mother was still in middle school … and he was subsequently ordered to pay $2,600 per month in child support (plus $500 for daycare) based on his income of $13,000 per month. But the mother has now filed legal docs, claiming Keef hasn’t been paying his child support bills. (TMZ)
An arrest warrant could be next for Keef if he does not make a scheduled September court appearance to address the child support issue.
The girl says Keef was supposed to start paying up in May, but so far he’s only paid $1,900 … meaning he’s already way behind … which is mindblowing if it’s true because Keef regularly carries THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN CASH. Like that time he was arrested with $8,000 in his pocket, or that time he left LAX with stacks of stacks. The girl claims she can’t afford to support herself without Keef’s money and he needs to pay up stat.A judge has since ordered the rapper to appear in court in September to explain why he hasn’t paid. If he doesn’t show up, an arrest warrant could be issued. Calls to Keef’s camp weren’t returned. (TMZ)
Earlier this year, reports surfaced and claimed Keef’s ex 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”)
Initial buzz behind the legal battle heated up the Internet in mid-January.
Keef, whose actual name is Keith Cozart, is named as the defendant is a suit that reportedly seeks day care expenses, health insurance, out-of-pocket health expenses, retroactive child support and the payment of legal fees that were incurred by the child’s mother, who had to have been around 12 or 13-years-old when she conceived the baby.
