Memphis Rapper, Tela, Wanted for Unpaid Child Support

tela.jpgRapper Tela, a Memphis native, is wanted in his hometown for some $128,000 in unpaid child support. According to a report from Memphis’ Eyewitness News, Tela—whose real name is Winston Rogers—has failed to pay support in over five years. The warrant was issued after he failed to appear in Memphis & Shelby County Juvenile Court to explain the reason for the lapse. “We’ve been looking pretty much everywhere trying to identify where he is or where he might be,” says Mitch Morgan, Child Support Director of the Memphis & Shelby County Juvenile Court. “Even to the extent where we thought he was going be here doing a concert in Memphis.” Tela’s attorney, Arthur Horn, attributes his client’s failure to pay to a lack of income over the last five years due to a dispute with his record label. According to Horn, the issue has now been resolved and Rogers plans to return to Memphis soon and “clear up the mess.”
