Compared to how he was living a few years ago, when he was seemingly getting into trouble every other month, Chief Keef has been staying out of the limelight and keeping his personal business off the 'Net. For the most part. So, it was a surprise to many when the rapper recently revealed in court documents that he is now the father of nine children in total.

The documents obtained by TMZ on Sunday (Dec. 9), show that Sosa has admitted to fathering four children with four different women all in the past five years.

The documents confirm the Chicago rapper has a 3-year-old named Kamiah, a 1-year-old named Khalo and two 4-year-old children named Khalil and Kirsten, adding to the five children the 23-year-old rapper already claims. All four of his youngest children's mothers are seeking child support. Starting in January, a judge has ordered Keef to cough up $564 per month to each of them. This is on top of what he is paying in child support for his previous five seeds.

In music-related news, Chief Keef has been active in recent months having put out two projects since November. The first, Back from the Dead 3, features Soulja Boy and Tray Savage. His most recent release, The Leek Vol. 6, dropped on Friday (Dec. 7).

Sosa also recently caught a legal win. Last month, he avoided jail time when the felony DUI charge he got when police pulled him over in his green Lamborghini in Miami was reduced to the lesser crime of a reckless driving.
