SMH: 17-Year-Old Rapper Chief Keef Sued For Child Support By A Girl In Junior High School
It’s unfortunate that at seventeen years old, rapper Chief Keef aka Keith Cozart makes headlines for being in the midst of trouble and controversy more than he does for his actual music. His most recent drama comes in the form of a child support battle with a girl who still appears to be in middle school. According to TMZ, the unnamed girl filed court documents in Chicago, claiming that Cozart is the father of a baby girl whom she gave birth to back in 2011.
The age of the young woman who filed the petition has not been disclosed; however, according to the filed documents, she still currently attends a Chicago junior high school. She is reported to be taking Cozart to court for an unspecified amount of unpaid child support as well as health insurance costs and other medical expenses.
So far there has been no word as to whether or not a DNA test has been conducted proving whether or not Keith is actually the father of her child. This doesn’t appear to be the only legal battle that the troubled rapper has found himself in recently. According to Complex Magazine, he was just sentenced to two months in a juvenile detention center for probation violation. It seems that he was filmed at a gun range, holding a rifle during an interview from last July and this of course, was in direct violation of his probation.
It’s really sad that a teen his age has to deal with issues that many full grown adults have a hard time handling. But, of course, with pretending to be an adult comes adult responsibilities. Hopefully he utilizes this time to regroup and get his mind right because he appears to be on a pretty destructive path right now.
