Coolio's Baby Mama: Help Me Get Insurance

Coolio's baby mama called in the government to force the rapper to cough up child support -- but what she really wants is health insurance.

A local child support agency in Los Angeles filed documents recently asking a court to order the "Gangsta's Paradise" rapper to pay $300 in monthly child support for his one-year-old son, Christopher Kal El Ivey Bellesi. Who knew Coolio was such a big fan of Nic Cage?

But his baby mama, Anabella Bellesi, tells TMZ the child support crackdown is a necessary requirement.  She says in order to apply for Medi-Cal for their son -- she must prove to the state that she has exhausted all her options.

It's a good thing she has a backup plan. According to the filed docs, Coolio only earns $1,387 a month.

So far no word from Coolio's people.
