This time the culprit is the late Gerald Levert’s brother Sean:

The brother of late crooner Gerald Levert sentenced to prison for not paying child support. Sean Levert will spend the next 22-months behind bars. Levert owes $85,427.68 in back child support for his three children – ages 11, 15 and 17. Levert was sentenced Monday by Judge Nancy Margaret Russo. He did not speak at his sentencing.

That’s a lot of paper to owe, especially since those checks from being in the group LeVert stopped coming in in the late 80’s.

    22 Months? I’m speechless, but this is how more and more men should be treated….PAY UP!!

  • bree

    22 months? $85,427.68 for three children?..LMAO!..with that kinda money he probably owed a payment and was NEVER able to catch up again..so when he gets out of jail will he still owe the money? or will he owe more?

    BTW. Is it wrong for a rich and successful woman to have a sugar baby?? It is an absolutely extramarital relationship, but more and more services come out on Internet focusing on this kind of relationship, such as SugarmommaMatch.com

    That’s what Im saying. He will still owe too much for 3 kids.

    Im sorry, but when did kids become expensive? He should pay something but that is a lot and he hasn’t really been working to pay this amount.

    Does anybody else have a vision of Mr. Kool-Aid looking at this picture?

    Good Morning yall! Hey Lauren girl!

    Well, he should have paid up! These musicians need to swallow that pride and get real jobs once those checks stop coming in. Especially if you have kids to take care of.

  • NotoriousOne

    Wassup Lauren?

    Hey Ms. Sugar Walls.

    Good morning Kompton’s Kutie.

    That is DEFINITELY a lot of cheese but I can see it. My 2 year old’s care cost is close to $40K a year. We’re not talking about food, clothing or anything else…JUST the care cost. Brahs should just man up if they gonna be out there having kids.

    @ Sweet Diva…

    “Does anybody else have a vision of Mr. Kool-Aid looking at this picture?”

    ^^^DEAAAD^^^

    SOUTHERN BELLLLLE, what’s good? Hope you’re having a good one…so far.

  • Lauren

    Notorious One….Hey Sir!

  • Lauren

    @ Southern Belle, whats good mamma?

  • Kompton's Kutie

    @NotoriousOne

    GoodMorning!

  • Lady Architect

    Dag my question is does he have that kinda money? If so then he should go to jail for abandoning his duties. If he doesn’t have the money I don’t see how going to jail suddenly make 85grand appear in his hand so I’m a bit confused.

  • Lauren

    @ Lasy Arch, Morning! They probably been haslting him for a while now, I’m sure he knew his kids are too old, so he probably NEVER paid child support.

    “I don’t see how going to jail suddenly make 85grand appear in his hand so I’m a bit confused.”

    These cats might not have $85K on hand (like MJB has $12 million in cash) but they do have royalty checks coming in and assets that can be liquidated. The jail thing is just to get them to do just that, liquidate some assets and show good faith in paying child support. Doesn’t necessarily have to be the whole $85K at once.

  • Lauren

    @ Notorious One, thats what I’m saying it seems to me like he never gave them a penny if they’re sending him to jail for that long….smdh!

  • NotoriousOne

    @ Lauren…

    Yeah I’m thinking that he’s probably missed a few of the hearings and ignored the judgment on previous decisions. The sentencing is at the discretion of the judge and if Sean has blatantly ignored the judge’s request he WILL get stuck. Those judges don’t play!

    I HATE the child support laws in our country. Child support goes both ways. Whatever the court decides in terms of payments should be split 50/50.

  • Detroit Hummingbirdee

    Dubya,

    I feel you & I am a woman. Why have the baby when the man didn’t want it & you know you couldn’t afford it and now you expect him to pay?. I made the decision to have my baby because I knew that with or without the daddy I could support her. Child support laws are unfair in this country. For example, if the woman is on Medicaid, why does the MAN have to pay the whole cost for the birth (at least $6,000) when TWO people laid down to make the baby? I think 22 months is a long time to spend it jail becuase they kids are going to now miss out on 2 years without their father which is more important.

    I don’t know what kind of “care” you are talking about that costs $40k but daycare for my 4 year old is $100 a week or $5200 a year at most.

  • NotoriousOne

    @ Skoopes-Da Original…

    “And to the person that is paying 40K a year for a child… YOU NEED TO STOP LYING OR HAVE YOUR ASS WHOOPED! I don’t spend 40K on mydamnself and I work everyday!!!”

    I don’t know in what backwards town YOU live in playa or what type of minimum wage job you got but I live in the NYC and it is NOT cheap. Check Craigslist for nannies and you’ll see that the going rate is $600-$700 a week (so let’s say, on the low end, $31,200 a year) add to that $650 a month for day care (2-3 days a week for 4 hours…considered half days) and you get $7,800. Add ‘em up! Maybe YOU wanna be cheap w/ the care of your child but I don’t play that. Factor in the fact that between his mother and I we make close to half a million a year and $40K is a drop in the bucket for something as vital as our son’s everyday care.

    “I don’t know what kind of “care” you are talking about that costs $40k but daycare for my 4 year old is $100 a week or $5200 a year at most.”

    Again, we pay for a nanny to come to our house and for him to go to day care to interact w/ other kids. The NYC is NOT cheap and I’m talking about a professional nanny, not cousin Ray-Ray or my neighbor down the hall (not saying that this is you but yeah some peeps here in the NYC go that route). And like I said, I make enough money where I’m not gonna go budget on my son’s care just to save a dollar.
