After failing to appear in court earlier this week and answer to charges he's fallen behind on child support payments, rapper and reality TV star Flavor Flav faces 180 days in jail, TMZ reports.

The Public Enemy legend reportedly owes $111,186 to Albany, N.Y., resident Angie Parker, who gave birth to three of his children. Flav has a total of seven kids, and in 2009, another of his baby mamas, Karen Ross-Fortunate, made similar claims, telling the press that she'd been shortchanged on support payments.

Flav, whose real name is William Jonathan Drayton Jr., is under court orders to pay Parker $837.72 per week. When he didn't show up earlier this week, a judge recommended taking away his driver's license and throwing him in the slammer for 180 days.

"It was declared a willful violation," an official said.

Flav has a long history of legal woes, and if wants to avoid another trip to the clink, he'll need to put together a strong defense by June 19, when he's due back in Albany Family Court.
