There is a certain perception of what the life of a rapper might be like. Some people in Florida might believe that a successful rapper has all the money in the world, with a large house and fancy cars to go with it. However, rappers, such as Future, are not immune to legal problems, including child support issues. Future, who has four children by four different women, has been accused of hiding his true income from the court.
The rapper and the mother of one of his children previously came to an agreement that he would pay $1,662 a month to support his child. This amount was determined based on his assertion that he made approximately $16,500 a month. However, the woman has filed new papers claiming that he was less than honest with the court.
In fact, she claims that he makes approximately $50,000 a month. As a result of the recent court activity, Future will now have to pay $2,800 each month, in addition to almost $4,000 in back payments. The new child support amount will now be garnished from his paycheck. He is reportedly still trying to come to agreements regarding support for two of his other children and their mothers.
This case shows Florida parents that anyone can experience difficulties regarding child support. However, being open and honest with the family court can help those who may legitimately be struggling with such payments. For those who may choose not to make payments, there could be serious ramifications, such as wage garnishment and even the loss of licenses. Most importantly, a parent’s relationship with his or her child could deteriorate in certain circumstances.
