Chance The Rapper’s Baby Mama Withdraws Court Petition to Set Parenting Schedule
Everything is fine in the household of Chance The Rapper. Kirsten Corley, Chance's girlfriend and the mother of his daughter, withdrew a court petition seeking to set a parenting schedule between the two.
"All is well, and the motion has been withdrawn," Corley's attorney Enrico Mirabelli told the Chicago Tribune Tuesday (Jan. 3).
Lawyers for Chance and Corley were originally scheduled to be in Cook County court in Chicago next week for a status hearing on the case. Court records show that the couple agreed to a parenting plan in June 2016, but Corley filed paperwork seeking a parenting schedule less than three months later since she stopped living with Chance. The petition was taken off the table when Chance and Corley began living together again.
Chance and his girlfriend ending their legal wrangling might be why the rapper was willing to finally share pictures of his daughter, Kensli Bennett. Chance posted a few photos and videos of his child on Instagram earlier this week.
“This is the girl who reintroduced me to God,” he captioned one photo. “She’s the woman who reminded me how to be a man, and taught me how to love. She is everything I am but much better. I can’t wait for her to one day help the world the way she has helped me.”
Now that Chance's family life is back in a good place, he can resume the music grind. The "No Problem" MC is scheduled to headline the 2017 Governors Balls Music Festival, which will take place in June.
