Public Enemy hypeman and reality show star Flavor Flav reportedly owes more than $63,000 in unpaid child support.
According to the New York Post, the 50-year-old hip-hop legend (real name: William Jonathan Drayton Jr.) owes $63,458 in back child support to Mary Parker, whom with he has three children with.
Parker filed to amended her child-support agreement in July 2008 since the one drafted in 1996 covered just two of their kids.
In January, she won an appeal that would increase Flav’s payments from $117 to $837.72 a week in support, plus tuition for the kids’ private school, retroactive to the 2008 filing.
“The judgment is recent, as I was just made aware of it,” Flav told the paper. “I’ll certainly be addressing it. However, I’ve made payments on my children’s tuition, and have made direct payment to the mother outside of the court order.”
This was not the first time he’s been accused of falling behind on child support payments. According to TheBoomBox.com, his daughter made similar claims in January 2009, and another woman with whom he has three kids, Karen Ross-Fortunate, has also made similar allegations.
Flav has seven children in all.
