Just a few months ago, Stevie J. was caught on camera with a lil ‘white powder’ on his nose… (CLICK HERE if you missed that), so it’s really not a shock that he failed his court ordered drug test recently… that was a sure bet.
Suge Knight is in child support hell…. again! Last year, the larger than life music mogul got hemmed up in court by former death row singer, Michel’le Toussaint, who happens to be his ex-wife and the mother of his 7 year old daughter, Bailei. Michel’le was after Suge for failing to pay over $40,000 in unpaid court-ordered spousal and child support. (click HERE if you missed it).
Now Suge’s being sued my his other baby mama but according to his bank account…she waited too late. Continue Reading…
An Atlanta judge has ordered T.I. to increase the child support payments received by the mother of his two sons, LaShon Dixon. Tip had originally been paying about $3,000 per month to support his two sons, ages 7 and 9 but Dixon sought to increase those payments when she felt that her sons needed “to be equal” in both households (her words…peep the video), asking the court to raise the payments to $10,000 per month. Yesterday the judge ordered T.I. to increase his payments to $5,000 per month:
T.I., who was originally ordered to pay for the boys to attend private school, is no longer required to make that payment. The judge, Bensonetta Tipton Lane, also ordered the performer to pay half of the children’s extracurricular activities and all their medical expenses.
The judge ordered joint custody of the boys to continue, with Dixon granted primary physical custody. He’ll have visitation every other weekend.
Dixon’s attorney, Randy Kessler, says the woman is “very grateful” for the judge’s decision and called it “a complete victory.” (Source)
T.I. faced his children’s mother, LaShon Dixon, in court today to dispute charges that he doesn’t adequately support his children. Tip appeared perturbed on the witness stand when asked about the size of his home as Dixon’s attorneys attempted to show the court that his income could accomodate an increase. The news reported that Dixon makes about $20,000 per year and is seeking an increase so that the kids can have the same benefits at her home as they do at T.I.’s. I’m usually on the woman’s side, but this time I’ll have to side with Tip. He argued on the stand that he works hard to support his kids and they want for NOTHING, so why should he give her extra:
“When they are with me…they have the standard of living that I have created for MY household due to all of my hard work, all of my sacrifices, all of the things that I have been able to provide. Now…if that’s not available at LaShon’s house that’s because LaShon has failed to provide…”
