Juvenile has found himself behind bars in his hometown of New Orleans over missed child support payments.
The rapper was recently busted after majorly falling behind on payments to his teenage son’s mother, Dionne Williams, to the tune of $150,000, reports TMZ. The former Cash Money MC must now cash Williams out or spend the next month in jail.
This isn’t the rapper’s first time dealing with legal repercussions due to child support. Back in 2006, he was arrested in Florida for a child support case after racking up a similar debt.
In other Juvie-related news, the NOLA MC will be participating in Master P’s celebrity basketball game in conjunction with the 2017 Essence Festival, if he gets out of jail in time. The Team Hope NOLA Celebrity Basketball Game is going down at the Xavier University Convocation Center in New Orleans, the same weekend as the famed fest.
Celebrity ballers will also include Trey Songz, Romeo, Curren$y, Silkk The Shocker, Ray J, Terrence J, Trombone Shorty, Doug E. Fresh, Mystical, Anthony Mackie, Raymond Brothers, Kidd Kidd, Scrappy, Jacoby Jones and Yung Joc. Former NBA players Robert Pack, Caron Butler and Ben Gordon will add to the competition. “This is more than a basketball game, this is for the community and I’m happy we can do it in my hometown,” Master P told XXL of the game.
It goes down on June 29.
