Chief Keef has been ordered to pay child support after a DNA test confirmed that he is the father of a 10-month-old baby.
The Chicago rapper is currently in a drug rehab facility in California for the next three months to address his marijuana addiction. His attorney appeared before Bridgeview Judge Russell Hartigan to review the results of the DNA test, according to Cook County state’s attorney spokeswoman Lisa Gordon.
“An order was entered finding him to be the father,” Gordon said.
As reported by the Chicago Tribune, Hartigan ordered Chief Keef, whose real name is Keith Cozart, to pay $2,500 a month beginning December 1 for the next 10 months, as well as a lump sum of $25,000 by December 31. He must also obtain medical and life insurance for the baby, Gordon said. Chief Keef is due in court on January 27. Apparently, Chief Keef never denied that the child was his.
The 18-year-old has been served with two paternity cases in less than a year. In January, a middle school student who said Chief Keef impregnated her in 2011 sued him for child support, health insurance, and other medical expenses. The girl gave birth to a daughter, Kayden Kash (Kay Kay), that same year. Kayden turned two on November 28, but the mother’s age is currently unknown. A judge ordered Chief Keef to pay $2,600 a month in child support, plus $500 for daycare expenses, payments he repeatedly failed to make.
A judge sentenced Chief Keef to jail in September for failing to show up for a child support hearing. On October 21, Chief Keef was ordered to pay $11,000, which he did last week, managing to avoid jail time. He is due back in court on December 10 to address his failure to show up for multiple court dates.
Chief Keef is currently expecting a son, Mon’e, with another woman. According to his Instagram, the child is due in January. When the rapper finishes his stint in rehab, which he has to pay for himself, he will head back to Illinois to work at a horse therapy facility for disabled patients.
