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.

Yet another brilliant rapper. WHat the hell kid of upbringingdo these kids have. Where the hell are his parents and what kid of moral compass does this freekin moron have. Hopefully the attach all of his earnings so this poor kid gets brought up right. Then when this class A D65chebag loses all his moeny and is washed up career wise and flippin burgers for a living maybe he will have learnbed a lesson. I doubt it. It is a pathetic comemntary on society.

Since this "rapper" is so "rich," what are the odds he will pay up in full?"
Fairly long I think.
