Rap Veteran’s Son Headed To Jail For At Least Three Years, Details Revealed

Rap veteran Coolio’s 22 year-old son is reportedly headed to jail for at least three and a half years after coming to terms with a plea agreement in relation to 2011 felony charges.

According to reports, Grtis Ivey could still get hit with a ten-year jail sentence despite his plea agreement.

Coolio’s son is about to go on the exact opposite of a fantastic voyage — he’s headed to prison for at least 3.5 years … TMZ has learned. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that Ivey agreed to a deal earlier this week in which he agreed to plead guilty to a felony robbery charge … and in exchange, prosecutors would drop the remaining four felony charges. Under the plea agreement, Ivey will serve a minimum of 3.5 years in prison (and a max of 10 years depending on how much time the judge believes he deserves). A judge will formally sentence Ivey on September 12. (TMZ)

The rap vet’s son has remained behind bars since mid-November 2011.

Grtis Ivey, 22, the eldest son of rapper Coolio who appeared on the family reality show Coolio’s Rules, is locked up in a Nevada jail after he and a Vegas hooker allegedly robbed a man at gunpoint. Ivey was arrested on November 14, 2011 for allegedly busting into a Vegas apartment with a gun and forcing the victim into the bathroom, while he and a female prostitute named Shantrice Wilkerson ransacked the place. Ivey is being held without bail and is due to face a judge on Monday. (Global Grind)

Back in 2010, Coolio caught heat for not living up to child support obligations.

A local child support agency in Los Angeles filed documents recently asking a court to order the “Gangsta’s Paradise” rapper to pay $300 in monthly child support for his one-year-old son, Christopher Kal El Ivey Bellesi. But his baby mama, Anabella Bellesi, tells TMZ the child support crackdown is a necessary requirement. She says in order to apply for Medi-Cal for their son — she must prove to the state that she has exhausted all her options. It’s a good thing she has a backup plan. According to the filed docs, Coolio only earns $1,387 a month. (TMZ)

The rapper previously had a $10,000 bench warrant issued after he failed to attend a court hearing.

Rapper Coolio has escaped arrest after turning up for a court hearing on Tuesday – a day after a Los Angeles judge issued a bench warrant to have him detained. However, after showing up for the hearing on Tuesday, Coolio – real name Artis Leon Ivey, Jr. – escaped further action by proving he had adhered to the terms of his probation, including a drug rehab program. The hip-hop star is due back in court on January 18, 2011 for his next progress report. (Canoe News)
