Bow Wow

Fails to Disclose BET Deal

In Child Support Case

10/2/2012 10:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bow Wow
has been ordered to pay child support for his 1-year-old daughter, but we've learned he withheld critical financial information from the judge.

Bow Wow and baby mama Joie Chavis were in court Monday, fighting over exactly how much Bow Wow is worth and how much he has to pay.  After some haggling, Bow Wow voluntarily agreed to shell out $3,000 a month in support for baby Shai.

Bow Wow told the judge ... he makes $4,000 a month working as an employee at Cash Money Records, and that's it.  He testified he leases a Jeep and has a grand total of $1,500 in his checking account.

So here's the question -- if he makes $4,000 a month before taxes, how can he afford to pay $3,000 a month in child support? 

We'll here's an answer ... After the court hearing was concluded, Bow Wow was officially named host of BET's long-running and influential hip hop show, "106 & Park."  Bow Wow made no mention of this in court.

The judge will have some tough questions for Bow Wow in December, when the court rules on a permanent child support order.

In the meantime, the judge also ordered Bow Wow to pay $11,500 in back child support.

Calls to Bow Wow's rep were not immediately returned.

You expected him to disclose something that wasn't finalized?
It's bad enough they would already allow 3 grand in support from someone bringing in 4, but this story is a ****ing mess. Who writes this ****?

A lesson to be learned. Do not have children or become a parent if you KNOW that you are the type of person who isn't comfortable paying a pretty big amount of what you make to someone else every month, that you should honor yourself and never have a kid.

Why y'all acting so stupid? This story is obviously incorect in amounts or scenario. Come on, you all know better than this. TMZ needs to do more research and get facts instead of racing to put out a untruthful story first. But I thought you people were at least a little smarter than to buy this nonsense.

TMZ needs to do some real research. Bow WoW is broke and you probably pay your staff writers more than he will make on 106& Park. Think about it. This is not exactly Nikki Minaj (someone with a relevant career) doing AI to boost her profile. Bow WOW needs the dough.

He made the babies he should help support them.. note, I say HELP support them, not FULLY support them. One child needs $3K a month??? No wonder these women all get pregnant to these idiots.

3k a month is PLENTY to pay for one child's upbringing. He may be grimey for withholding certain info, but an increase in support would be ludicrous.
