Rapper Chief Keef

17 Years Old ... With HUGE Child Support Bills

EXCLUSIVE

0509-chief-keef-getty17-year-old rap prodigy Chief Keef is making bank off his music -- GREAT NEWS -- except he knocked up a girl and now has to pay a TON in child support based off his budding income.

TMZ broke the story, Keef -- real name Keith Cozart -- was sued for child support​ by his middle-school-aged baby mama earlier this year. She claimed Keef fathered her kid -- born in 2011 -- when he was only 15.

According to court docs, the teenage rapper pulls in about $13,000 A MONTH!!! Pretty baller considering his age.

As a result, a judge ordered Keef to pony up $2,600 a month in child support -- based on his lucrative career -- plus $500 in day care expenses and $10,400 in previously unpaid support. A hearing is set for next month to finalize the amount.

Congrats Keef, you've arrived.

Off to a great start. I mean having rapper;s and athletes as role model's this is what you get. I'm sure the baby's Momma is the salt of the earth. i wouldn't be betting on that horse getting pregnant at 15.

Any one who thinks that $260......0 a month is a lot should never have kids. That's only $30,000 a year. In some cities you would be lucky to get an apartment in a safe neighborhood for that. Add food, transportation, child care, clothes and supplies and you just might cover the bills. When the mother is older and able to work the judge might reduce it. But right now he is able to pay and he should. ******* spends more than $260......0 on weed.
