Chief Keef Sued For Child Support By Middle School Student
There are more legal problems ahead for Chicago rapper Chief Keef.
The 17-year-old — whose real name is Keith Cozart — is being sued for child support by a middle school student who says Keef impregnated her in 2011 when he was 15.
The girl’s age is unknown at the moment, but documents say she is currently attending a Chicago middle school. She could have been in at least 6th grade or at most 8th grade when she gave birth to her child, a daughter.
In Illinois, Chief Keef’s home state, it is a misdemeanor for two people under 17 to have a sexual relationship, even if the relationship is consensual. When both parties are between 9 and 17, the older party commits “criminal sexual abuse” under the law, according to Hollywood Life.
The maximum punishment for criminal sexual abuse is one year in jail and being forced to register as a sex offender for 10 years. However, it is unlikely that the girl and her parents will pursue the charges if they haven’t done so already.
The girl is suing for an undisclosed amount of child support, as well as health insurance and other medical expenses, according to TMZ.
Chief Keef was recently sentenced to 60 days in a juvenile detention center for violating his probation. He was put on 18-month probation for pointing a gun at a Chicago police officer, and was filmed shooting a gun at a New York gun range last summer. He had also been the subject of a murder investigation when one of his rivals was shot in Chicago.
