Chief Keef Sued For Child Support
Add baby mama drama to the list of things Chief Keef doesn't like.
The mother of the teen gangster rap star's 14-month-old daughter filed a lawsuit seeking child support to cover the cost of day care, health insurance and living expenses, court papers show.
Chief Keef, whose real name is Keith Farrelle Shantique Cozart, acknowledged in court documents that he is the girl's father. The toddler, who Chief Keef calls "Kay Kay," makes a cameo appearance in the rapper's YouTube video, "They Know."
The initial lawsuit, which sought "retroactive" child support payments, called Chief Keef a "well-known musical artist" who "earns a substantial income."
On Jan. 16, the mother's attorney, George Sanders, filed a motion for temporary support aimed at getting the rapper to immediately provide "health insurance and some support so she can take care of her child."
Although some reports said the toddler's mother is a "middle-school student," court papers show that the girl was 16 years old — two months younger than Chief Keef — when the child was born. The mother of the girl is now 17 years old and a student at Olive-Harvey College.
Last week, a Cook County judge sentenced Chief Keef to 60 days in juvenile detention for violating probation on charges he pointed a gun at Chicago police officers.
