Celebrities Who Think Paying Child Support, Taxes, And Other Bills Is Optional

Lawsuits, taxes, divorce settlements, mortgages, whatever reason for the owed funds, these famous folks weren’t hearing it. Check out this list of stingy celebrities who wouldn’t pay up for nothing.

Kordell Stewart

Kordell knows he could have given Porsha something.

Streamline Records

Vincent Herbert’s employeer needs to break him off an advance or something. The brother is supposedly so broke, he couldn’t even finish paying for his Grammy suit. We don’t know about that but he does have a nasty tax situation on his hands.

Sean Combs

It’s cold outside of the kingdom. Apparently, Diddy’s ex Misa Hylton-Brim is having trouble paying the mortgage on the house he bought her. And Diddy won’t help with the $600K she needs to stay out of a foreclosure that will put her and his son on the streets — even though Diddy’s the one who took out a $700,000 mortgage on the property.

Master P

There’s cutting off a gold digger, and there’s leaving the mother of your kids high and dry. We don’t know what went on with Master P and his wife, but it’s never a good look when you’re worth $350 million and the mother of your kids is collecting WIC.

Floyd Mayweather

Floyd’s friends must think he’s stingy for real, because they just won’t stop jacking him for his jewels. First his “girlfriend” Princess Love took him for tens of thousands.

Now he’s accused of setting up a beat down for another dude who took him for even more. We think Floyd needs better friends.

Mona Scott-Young

The folks over at 8th Wonder Entertainment are calling out Mona Scott-Young for not giving over their share of the Love and Hip Hop empire.

They say that they gave Mona the idea for the show, but instead of collaborating, she took the idea and ran. Now they’re suing Mona Scott-Young and her production company Monami for $50 million dollars.

If they win, it will the largest copyright infringement case in Reality TV history!

Universal Republic

Are you ready for Kelly Rowland to stop making records? Because Universal Republic says they’re tired of funding them. After Kelly’s last album only sold 200,000 copies, they say they won’t front the money for her to take a stab at another hit.

Stevie J

Or should we say Steven Jordan. They’re using his government name now that he’s being sued for around a million in back child support. We hope he didn’t spend those babies’ money on that suspicious white substance on his nose.

Brittish Williams

Apparently all you have to do is stay black and die…and pay taxes. British is about to be in some serious financial hot water for holding on to $18,000 of the governments cut from her online business Love of Labels. And they better hurry up and get it, because with an “F” rating with the Better Business Bureau, this business may not be around for long.


Ludacris doesn’t have any problem being cheap — he just doesn’t want people to know. First Ludacris tried to cut his baby’s mother’s child support from $7000 a month to $1800 claiming hard times. Now he wants full custody so he doesn’t have to pay anything at all.

And when his child support struggle went public, he tried to have the court record sealed because they were “making him look bad”. Should he blame that on the records, or his tight pockets?

Kenya Moore

NeNe recently slammed Kenya for being stingy…with the compliments. Kenya keeps talking about NeNe’s career with air quotes, but NeNe says she deserves more than a little respect.

On her Bravo Blog, she blasted:

“If you were in this business, then you would know that as an African American actress not many of us can say that we have worked on two major networks at the same damn time as working on a cable network. That’s amazing within itself!”

You’ve got to give credit where credit is due…

Matthew Knowles

Beyonce may be scandal free, but her daddy is dragging the family name through the dirt. His mistress Alexsandra Wright says Mr. Knowles owes over $31K in child support. And since he wouldn’t pay up, she and his child have been forced to go on food stamps.

You’d think Matthew would pay up just to keep his family’s name out of the mud.


He’s in the middle of a sold out tour so we know he’s making money. But his baby mama Carment Bryant says Nas hasn’t been paying his 19-year-old daughter Destiny’s college tuition and medical bills and he owes over $11K in child support.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye

These two are slated to make untold millions from their televised nuptials — but they don’t want to share that money with any of the guests. They’re confiscating cell phones and requiring confidentiality agreements at the door so no one else gets a cut of their paparazzi check.

Bow Wow

Bow must really not want to pay child support payments. Rumor has it that on his birthday, he ran out of a night club and away from process servers.

We don’t know what was in that envelope, but we have a feeling he’s fallen behind on Joie’s monthly payments again.
