Rapper T.I. Ordered To Pay More Child Support
by Staff

Rapper T.I. has been ordered to increase child support payments to his ex-girlfriend to provide for their two young sons.

The Whatever You Like hitmaker, 27, was taken to court by LaShon Dixon, the mother of his seven and eight year old boys.

She claimed the monthly installments of $2,000 (£1,080) she receives from the star - real name Clifford Harris - was inadequate to raise the children. Dixon filed her lawsuit in Georgia's
Fulton County Superior Court earlier this month (Sep08).

And during a court hearing on Tuesday (23Sep08), Superior Court Judge Bensonetta Tipton Lane ruled T.I. must pay an extra $1,000 (£540) to Dixon, bringing her total monthly allowance to $3,000 (£1,620).

T.I. had previously insisted he had never failed to provide for his children, and that he has always paid his sons' school fees and given them additional cash for other needs.

Judge Lane noted this, and told T.I. he must continue to pay for their education and medical bills, as well as other expenses related to the children's extracurricular activities.

Lane also awarded the former couple joint custody of the boys, with Dixon having primary physical custody.

But Dixon is still unhappy with the amount of child support their mother is receiving.

Her attorney, Randy Kessler, says, "Every bit helps. She was just getting by with the children, while they lived a different life with their father. It can't be complete opposites on the other side."

T.I. is a father to three other children from different relationships, including the two young sons he shares with longtime girlfriend Tameka 'Tiny' Cottle, formerly of R&B group Xscape. (c) WENN
