Flavor Flav Said to Owe $63K in Child Support

For the past few years, Flavor Flav has been looking for love but now he might be in search of a good lawyer. The Public Enemy hype man, born William Drayton, Jr., is said to owe over $63,000 in unpaid child support.

Mary Parker, the mother to three of Flav’s seven children, is seeking a reported $63,439 in owed monies. Back in 1996, Parker and Flav came to an agreement where the rapper-turned-reality star would financially support their then-two children. In 2008 Parker gave birth to a third child by Flav and she moved to have the agreement modified to a larger sum.

Last month a judge ruled in Parker’s favor, increasing Flav’s weekly payments to $837.72, along with covering the children’s private school tuition. Flav, however, is contesting the allegations saying that he has provided for his children and their mother beyond the court’s requirements.

“The judgment is recent as I was just made aware of it,” Flav said in an interview with the New York Post. “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.”

At press time, a court date had yet to be set. Stay tuned to XXLMag.com for more on this case. —Amber Mckynzie

    This is why i don’t like leaving comments cause somebody else who thinks what they have to say has holds more weight or value or they’re feeling jealous so they feel like they need that 15 min fame shit. Now I don’t think all ATL Rappers are crap just the majority of them & I will swallow my words Donnis’s track Gone I rechecked it & it was ok, not great but ok. Sure I’ll admit it cause I know when im wrong. An (VoiceofATL & JTM) get off my internet balls, shit riding me over some words, it was an opinion for all you simple minded fucks. I appreciate that raw rap like it used to be not this bubble/pop dance my & snap bullshit. An lets not turn this into some internet beef cause you only going to be beefing with yourself, cause the fuck beefs while typing lmfao.

    63k shouldn’t be a problem for Flav, what with all of that “Flavor of Love” money in the bank. Seems like nowadays you have to write a check (NO cash) if you’re giving money to the babymoms so that there’s a papertrail to prove you paid.

    I still don’t see how NaS got hit with that big ass bill!

    Nas got with a big ass bill, because he makes more money than Flavor Flav….simply put….theres no way Flav can go sell out a 15-20,000 seat venue like Nas could…and there is no way he gets paid much for that show even! Dudes broke!

    I was just talking to my brother about this. He recently got jacked by New York State for Child Support in the sum of…. well let’s say 5 figures and I repeatedly told him to simply file for Child Support immediately after his son was born so he wouldn’t fall into these situations. Now the girl didn’t take him to court but she is on gov’t assistance so NYS thinks he’s ducking when he’s been paying but with no paper trail to prove otherwise…. he’s more than likely to get fu@ked. No matter what you have to cover your bases now days as a man otherwise you could end up in situations like this. Hand to hand transactions are many times impossible to prove in court. The best thing to do is write a check and keep it filed in case such cases do arise & hope it proves your case.
