Former Death Row Records head Suge Knight finds himself back in court. This time, it’s for failing to make child support payments.
According to TMZ, Tammy Renell Hawkins filed papers in Los Angeles County Superior Court seeking support for their 4-year-old, Taz Maree Knight.
But, it doesn’t look like Hawkins will be getting much from the fallen music executive.
Here’s why: by California law, support is based on the presumed income of the person paying … and according to documents, Suge’s net income is only about $1,200 a month.
Of that $1,200 a month, the most Hawkins can request is $302 on a monthly basis.
Knight was the founder of the once powerful Death Row Records, one of the first black-owned labels to own its own master recordings. At one time, the label boasted a roster of artists such as Snoop Dogg, Tupac, Dr. Dre and the Dogg Pound, and grossed over $100 million annually.
