Holy child support payments Ross!
According to new legal documents obtained by TMZ, rapper and franchise owner Rick Ross is expected to start paying Briana Singleton $11,000 a month in child support for their three kids. (Ross has one other child from another relationship.) The documents say Ross also needs to pay for his kids’ health insurance and extracurricular activities, figures estimated to be around $7,560 a month. The Maybach Music mogul might be required to provide additional annual payments for up to $3,000 per child. Rick also agreed to pay Brianna’s attorney around $25,000, an expense he can afford according to the documents, which list his monthly income at around $585,000. (Singleton’s is apparently listed as $142.)
The previous year, a DNA test confirmed that Ross was the father of Singleton’s children Berkeley and Billion. At the time, Singleton was also pregnant with the former couple’s third child. She sued Ross for paternity and child support. If you have a claim for child support, it is likely Rick Ross was avoiding any financial paternal responsibilities. However, it is also possible Singleton was looking for a more reliable flow of financial support from Ross. In California, you pay child support until the age of 18 or 19 if the child is unmarried and still attending high school full time.
Do you think Ross should be paying child support?
