If you haven’t heard by now, Shad Moss aka Bow Wow has got himself a job!
The YMCMB rapper has been declared as one of the new hosts of BET’s 106 & Park (watch video).
While that should be great news for the ‘gangsta’ rapper who recently survived a scandal of epidemic proportions when a vicious umor spread that he was boo’d up with another dude, it’s way better news for his baby mama.
A judge is now making Bow Wow pay the back child support for his 1-year-old daughter Shai. Monies that he originally claimed he couldn’t afford as an “employee of Cash Money Records”…
Bow Wow has just been ordered to pay child support and according to TMZ, he withheld some critical financial information from the judge.
Bow Wow and baby mama Joie Chavis were in court Monday, fighting over exactly how much Bow Wow is worth and how much he has to pay. After some haggling, Bow Wow voluntarily agreed to shell out $3,000 a month in support for baby Shai.
So here’s the question — if he makes $4,000 a month before taxes, how can he afford to pay $3,000 a month in child support?
We’ll here’s an answer … After the court hearing was concluded, Bow Wow was officially named host of BET’s long-running and influential hip hop show, “106 & Park.”
Bow Wow conveniently forgot to mention his new gig during court yesterday and now he’ll have to answer some tough questions in December, when he returns to court for the permanent child support order.
In the meantime, the judge ordered Bow Wow to pay $11,500 in back child support.
