I Can't Afford My Child Support

The Ying Yang Twins haven’t had a hit song in years ... that's why one of the rappers begged a judge to lower his child support payments, and he just got a huge break ... TMZ has learned.

According to docs filed in Georgia, D-Roc -- aka De'Angelo Holmes -- had been paying his ex-wife $2,500 a month in support for their daughter ... an arrangement that was made when he was pulling down more than 19-grand a month.

But the Twins haven’t had a hit since 2005's "Wait (The Whisper Song) --- so D-Roc went back to court ... hat in hand ... and asked for a reduction, claiming he's only making $2,860 a month.

D-Roc hammered out a sweet deal ... 'cause, according to the docs, his child support payments are now just $550 a month -- plus, he got a payment plan for the $45K in back support he owes.

One more reason D-Roc needed a break -- he has 5 other mouths to feed.

This is a ploy from his wife trying to hurt him...She's already cracked his platinum plaques..and is going to try to hurt him any she way can...they are still married, so he's not a deadbeat dad to the kids they have together..they live together....as for the other kids....why is this story coming out now out of nowhere...all this drama in his house just transpired last week..this is his wife trying to make him look bad,nothing more...I have talked to him and he takes care of his kids the best way he can....It might not be the best way to YOUR liking,but he is trying,which is more than I can say for alot of other people...and not all money is spent on weed and booze...he doesn't even smoke weed...but ask his wife...SHE does...and buys it with his money when he is out of town doing shows trying to make money...
