Master P -- Child Support Battle Begins

6/20/2011 4:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Master P was ordered by a court to fork over just $271/month in child support for his FOUR kids ... but TMZ has learned this is only the beginning ... 'cause he probably won't get off that easy. 

0610_masterp_TMZ_ex
According to docs filed back in March, Mr. P (real name Percy Miller) was ordered to pay ex-wife Sonya the minuscule amount (by his standards) based on a monthly income of just $1,387. 

We're told P's ex has been trying to get his real financials, to no avail so far.  So the Dept. of Child Support Services hit him with the minimum until they can assess his true worth.

The Millers have six children, four of whom are minors -- Tytyana, Italy, Hercy and Mercy.

A rep for Master P had no comment. We wish the rep said "Uhh!!! Na, na, na!" ... but it was just a no comment.

What an a**hole! I had to pay $467.oo a month for my son, and I was only making $8.22 per hour at the time. It was hard, but I took care of my son with making my payments and doing anything else I could to take care of him. He should be ashamed of himself and everyone should start to call him Master Pisshead.

I'm not surprised!!! He's been known to "STIFF" people when it comes to money. More than likely, there's no "prenup" in place and Master P doesn't want to "EQUITABLY" divide his assets in order to give his ex-wife what she's entitled to. His wife should hire the "disso queen", Laura Wasser to track down those "conveniently" inaccessible marital assets. GOD DON'T LIKE UGLY!!!

Obviously some of ya'll ain't never paid child support! Why is he a deadbeat because he's not paying enough money? What about spending time with his children? If he wasn't doing that, THEN he would be a deadbeat. That CS check ain't a fuggin meal ticket! She is obviously lookin for a handout. Where I'm from, the more you see and take care of your kids, the lower you pay. LIKE IT SHOULD BE!

Like someone said earlier, He prolly paying for the house they living in, the car they mama drive'n.... What else do the bish need for them besides food and clothes??? Deadbeat. NO! Learn what a true one is.

First of all Master P and Sonya are not divorced, they are still together. He is way out of line due to the fact Cyphonique is not Sonya's daughter which means he committed adultery because Tatayana and Cymphonique are the same age and they were born on the same day 14 years ago. He is file and Sonya will win in the end. He has a lot of outside kids, but all in all he has 7 kids from Sonya and 4 are elgible for child support. So TMZ set the record straight.

Where is Master P's Better Black Televison? I saw where it had launched November 2010. He has a great website for BBT but it does not explain things.

Oh so is that why he turned his company over to his son Romeo, to hide it from his ex wife- Romeo's mother? i was wondering why he was in such a hurry to hand things down so soon as if he was on his deathbed. Master P $1300 per month, you should be embarrassed, he probably spent that much on his grill.
