T.I's Baby Mama, 7K Short



Rap star T.I. won a child support dispute today against the mother of two of his kids. The rapper will now be ordered to pay $3,000 a month for child support as opposed to the original $10,000 requested. 

The mother, 29-year-old Lashon Dixon, is currently getting $2,000 a month, TMZ reports. Dixon, who filed suit in early September, claimed she wasn’t able to afford to take care of their two sons off the $2,000 she was receiving, and wanted to raise the stipend to reflect what the rapper was receiving as a highly-paid entertainer. 

Quick to respond, T.I. said that Dixon was simply trying to get over on him. “She has chosen not to work and to live 100 percent from her child support receipts,” he said. “This is the reason for her difficulties in making ends meet for herself… I should only be judged for my actions and not Lashon’s conscience decision not to work and not to contribute to the financial support of our boys.” 

Soon after the suit was filed, the rapper posted a statement on his website defending himself. 

“To clarify the recent reports, in addition to the $2000 per month I pay in cash to Lashon Dixon, the mother of my sons Domani and Messiah, I also pay for their private schooling, medical insurance, clothing, food, gifts, birthdays and extracurricular activities. Their extra-curricular activities have included football, basketball, baseball, acting lessons, summer camp, and any other activities that they express a desire to be involved in that will contribute to them leading balanced lives and developing into well rounded individuals.

"I have also made an attempt to help Lashon with additional payments that have included a down payment to purchase her home, purchase of an automobile for her transportation and other financial obligations. These expenses are documented and are far in excess of the $2000 cash payment that is being paid direct to Lashon.” 

VIBE.com reached out to T.I.’s rep regarding today’s settlement. The rapper has no comment.
