Jermaine Dupri Being Sued for Late Child Support Payments
An Atlanta woman named Sarai Jones is suing JD after he failed to make court-ordered child support payments that were appointed in March. At the ruling made by Fulton County Superior Court Judge Margaret Dorsey, Dupri was required to supply Jones with $2,500 monthly, in addition to a base payment of $7,500.
A paternity test has concluded that Dupri fathered Jones' 7-month-old child. Her attorney Randy Kessler says that his client simply wants Dupri to "work together to co-parent their beautiful baby girl."
This latest blow comes on the heels of some serious financial woes for the 'Money Ain't a Thing Rapper.' This week, he managed to delay the auction of his foreclosed Atlanta mansion, which has earned him a $2.5 million dollar debt, in addition to another $493,768 that he has owed in back taxes since 2007 and $14,024 in unpaid property taxes.
In 2006, Forbes cited Jermaine Dupri as earning $12 million for his work in the music industry.
