Fame and success has its costs. For Chief Keef, being a teenaged father is biting into his bottom line. The Chicago rapper is getting hit with thousands of dollars in monthly child support fees.
17-year-old rap prodigy Chief Keef is making bank off his music — GREAT NEWS — except he knocked up a girl and now has to pay a TON in child support based off his budding income.
TMZ broke the story, Keef — real name Keith Cozart — was sued for child support by his middle-school-aged baby mama earlier this year. She claimed Keef fathered her kid — born in 2011 — when he was only 15.
According to court docs, the teenage rapper pulls in about $13,000 A MONTH!!! Pretty baller considering his age.
As a result, a judge ordered Keef to pony up $2,600 a month in child support — based on his lucrative career — plus $500 in day care expenses and $10,400 in previously unpaid support. A hearing is set for next month to finalize the amount.
Congrats Keef, you’ve arrived.
Although there is that $10K in unpaid child support, Keef doesn’t seem to be a deadbeat dad. Followers of his Instagram know he is always posting pictures of his daughter, KayKay, who was there when he was released from juvenile detention earlier this year. Back in December 2012, he shared photos of his child support paperwork online.
Last week, Gucci Mane revealed that Keef now a member of Brick Squad, and their two respective teams combined are known as 1017 Glo Gang.
