TMZ is reporting this morning that an arrest warrant has been issued for rapper Chief Keef, whose real name is Keith Cozart, for failing to appear in court for a child support hearing.
The rapper was due in court last Thursday to answer for his over $20k deficit in child support payments to the mother of his children; however, Keef never made it to court.
As is usually the case in these circumstances, the judge issued an arrest warrant for the 18 year old rapper.
Should he be picked up by police for any reason, he could reasonably end up in jail until he pays about 1/5 of his child support debt.
What I don’t understand is how he got into this situation in the first place. I mean, let’s be honest here…a rapper like Chief Keef clearly has enough money to fund child support payments. We are talking about the person who is notorious for flashing stacks of cash in public.
So what is really going on here? Did he simply forget? Is he withholding the money for some greater purpose? I guess the only way we are going to find out is when the police track him down and he finally appears in front of the judge.
According to TMZ, their attempts to reach the rapper for comment were not returned.
