‘I Know What You Been Doing’: Alleged Baby Mama Of LHH’s Rich Dollaz Threatens To Expose Him For His Criminal Dealings
It seems that “Love & Hip Hop” star Rich Dollaz has once again found himself in hot water. And this time it appears to be far more serious than simply not keeping it real with his current love interest Erica Mena. According to The YBF, Richard has been involved in a very ugly paternity dispute for the last twelve years with model Chaundrea Nicole. The way that Chaundrea told the story almost one year ago, Rich has basically been skipping out on court dates and avoiding a paternity test in an effort to avoid taking responsibility for the child that he helped to create. He is even reported to have been arrested for failing to appear in court for a paternity test. Richard had since come forth to claim that all issues between he and Chaundrea have been settled, but she recently came out saying that couldn’t be further from the truth.
“I just wanted to let you know once again that he has LIED! It’s not “straightened out” he should either have had to take the DNA test while in jail (which I don’t think he did) or they gave him a court date, either way I’m not going to play with him at this point about my daughter because this effects her,” she told The YBF.
She also threatened to expose Rich for his criminal dealings if he doesn’t quit lying and start doing right by his daughter.
“If you keep on, you’re going to be in more trouble than just taking a DNA and child support. I know what you been doing and how you actually came to Memphis illegally and I know what else you did so if you keep on defaming my character, not only will I will be hitting you for child support I will be suing you as well, not to mention the felonies that you have committed!”
Chaundrea didn’t spare Erica Mena in her tongue lashing either. She went on to say that she is determined to teach her daughter about women like Erica who deal with men that fail to handle their responsibilities.
“I don’t want her to think that it’s ok to be like people like Erica because it’s not ok to be whorish to come up and get attention (like she did when she posted that old pic like he is with her when his A$$ was here in a club). I know I will be judged all types of ways but at this point I don’t care, I know what I am doing and I know who I am.”
What is more horrifying than any of the above-mentioned details is the fact that the child involved in all of this is old enough to understand what’s going on. We have got to do better.
Check out an image of the actual court document on the next page. What do you make of this? Does Rich strike you as the type that would try to completely bail on raising his child?
Yesterday, 106 & Park Host Shad “Bow Wow” Moss appeared on daytime talk show “Anderson Live” to discuss fatherhood and a couple of other topics with Anderson and his co-host Snooki of “Jersey Shore.” Of course parenting and baby talk was the most popular subject as Snooki and Bow Wow are both new-ish parents.
During the interview, Bow Wow lit up when discussing his daughter Shai and wasted no time chiming in with Snooki as she discussed the joys of being a parent and even shared that he loves fathering Shai. It’s always good to see a young black male own up to his responsibilities and obligations as a father; however, there will always be skeptics giving the side-eye and wondering if it’s all for show. The fact that Bow Wow’s been called out by his daughter’s mother and her sister several times for being a deadbeat dad doesn’t help his Father of the Year case.
If you recall, back when little Shai was born her mom Joie Chavis shared that she refused to put the rapper’s name on her daughter’s birth certificate because he was not a father. Joie’s younger sister, Naja Chavis later on echoed these claims by going at the 106 & Park host on Twitter.
“You publicly announced that Shai was your daughter, when are you going to publicly announce that you’re a DEADBEAT? @bowwow Shai deserves better.”
That tweet was accompanied by a slew of other accusatory tweets hurled at Moss and his mother. Many were easily able to write him off as a deadbeat due to accusations made by the Chavis women; however, now that he’s more out in the open discussing his daughter some are unsure of what to believe.
Back in October we reported that Shad and Joie had been in court trying to work out how much he should pay in child support. While Shad agreed to pay $3,000 per month,stating that he only made $4,000 a month as a Cash Money Records employee, after the court hearing, he was named the new host of 106 and Park, which means his monthly income probably increased drastically. Consequently, Shad and Joie will return to court for a permanent hearing this December. It will be interesting to see how he proves how much he loves his daughter then.
Check out the video of Bow Wow on Anderson. Do you think he’s being totally honest regarding his involvement in his daughter’s life?

Remember when the sister of Bow Wow’s baby mama asked him when he was going to publicly announce he’s a deadbeat dad? Well I think he just did. Yesterday, we were all happy for little Shad Moss after learning he got a full-time gig on “106&Park” but some of that excitement dimmed, for me at least, when word of his child support situation became public.
Before Bow Wow officially became a BET employee Monday he was handling some legal business, attending a court hearing with the mother of his 1-year-old daughter, Joie Chavis, to determine how much child support he should pay. Eventually, TMZ says, Bow Wow volunteered to pay $3,000 a month in child support which sounds awfully admirable, but when you look at this situation a little more closely, something is a bit fishy.
Bow Wow told the judge … he makes $4,000 a month working as an employee at Cash Money Records, and that’s it. He testified he leases a Jeep and has a grand total of $1,500 in his checking account.
So here’s the question — if he makes $4,000 a month before taxes, how can he afford to pay $3,000 a month in child support?
We’ll here’s an answer … After the court hearing was concluded, Bow Wow was officially named host of BET’s long-running and influential hip hop show, “106 & Park.” Bow Wow made no mention of this in court.
The judge will have some tough questions for Bow Wow in December, when the court rules on a permanent child support order.
In the meantime, the judge also ordered Bow Wow to pay $11,500 in back child support.
Now there’s no way a baby needs more than $3,000 a month to survive, but for Bow Wow to volunteer such a large amount means he’s likely about to rake in some silly money for his new hosting gig and those stacks are nothing to him. I’m not mad at him for that, but what judge thought it made sense that a man claiming to only bring in $4,000 in income each month, with only $1,500 supposedly in the bank, would openly volunteer to pay $3,000 of that to his baby mama? C’mon now. Bow Wow is clearly protecting some of his assets, which is cool, but I am concerned about that $11,500 in back support he’s been ordered to pay. It sounds like little sister Najah might have been telling the truth about how Bow Wow ”aint never bought a wipe, diaper, or formula.”#NoBueno.
What do you think about how Bow Wow handled his child support situation?

Sister Of Bow Wow’s Baby Mama Puts Him On Blast: “When Are You Gonna Publicly Announce You’re A Deadbeat?”
Najah Chavis, the little sister of Joie Chavis who is the mother of Bow Wow’s daughter, is not afraid to get e-buck—much like her big sis. There was already controversy over Bow Wow’s parenting–or lack thereof–last summer when Joie said she didn’t put his name on their child’s birth certificate because, well, he wasn’t a father, and now her little sister is pulling a Christina Milian and calling Bow Wow a deadbeat all over the Internet.
The YBF caught the trail of tweets where Najah essentially says Bow Wow fronts for the public, posting pics with his daughter like he’s father of the year, when neither he nor his mother sees Shai on a regular basis. Here are just a few of the messages she sent out:
Najah may be right about Bow Wow but Shai is not her baby, nor is that her situation to expose on the Internet. Perhaps she should scroll through the e-rolodex of men who have been put on blast for failing at fatherhood and see how quickly that made them change their ways—it doesn’t. You can’t make any man be a father and if Bow Wow really isn’t providing any type of financial assistance for his child as she alleged in other tweets she needs to spend her free time helping her big sis fill out child support paperwork not being messy on Twitter. Thoughts?

I’m sure we’ve all heard the term “Daddy’s Girl” – you know…that “Princess” who was spoiled rotten by her father and has him wrapped around her little finger. Most women fortunate enough to have a special relationship with their father wear that title as a badge of honor.
But for others who weren’t as fortunate, they carry a different badge that reads: “Daddy Issues.” They say a woman has “daddy issues” when her behavior or mindset indicates that her father was either absent in her life completely, or physically present but emotionally unavailable. These issues can plague a young girl into adulthood, especially if she’s trying to compensate for the attention she may not have received from her father in her relationships. While a woman may seem to have it all together at first glance, there are certain characteristics women with daddy issues display – and if you’re not sure, the following may be a few of the signs.
