(AllHipHop News) Another day, another artist is ordered to cough up cash for their offspring. However, this time the artist in question wanted it.
Singer/producer/writer Akon filed a paternity test against one of his many baby mamas asking the court to establish custody, child support and legally recognize him as the two boys biological father.
After the tests proved that Akon was the father, he had to submit docs proving his monthly income — a whooping $40,000.
Based off of that the judge ordered him to pay $5,000/month for the two boys. That may not seem like much but considering that Mr. “Locked Up” has six other children the system didn’t want him going broke.
