Fails to Disclose BET Deal

In Child Support Case

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.

I just have one question do judges who award child support ever get solid evidece such as Tax Returns to decide what kind of income the person really has, Lets face it This guy claims he makes $4000 dollars a month with paying no taxes and no living cost no expese for living he gives up $3000 a month in child support is this judge just a eneducated moron,

If you lay with out protection, then you pay . But the baby mama should be happy for the $3000. a month because this is a child made out side of marriage that should not have full entitlement as do legitimate babies. Nobody force the baby mama to open her legs!!!

How would Bow Wow know he would officially host BET? I know for a fact that they were searching for hosts for quite a while. There is no way that he would have known. My best friend's son's girlfriend tried out and it was a whole month for her of going back and forth after she submitted a video.
