Scarface To Remain Locked Up In Atlanta Until He Pays Back $480K
Cops had been looking to arrest deadbeat dad Scarface for back child support for more than TWO YEARS before they nabbed him last week at the BET Hip Hop Awards.
The rapper has had a warrant out for his arrest since 2013 for ignoring a court order for 10 years to pay baby mama Chana Wiley $3,500 a month for their son. That added up to nearly half a million in child support, but cops couldn’t arrest him because no one knew exactly where the Houston rapper was.
But that all changed last week, when Wiley found out he’d be at the BET Awards in Atlanta. A judge signed off on an arrest order, and officers from the Fulton County Sheriffs Department nabbed Scarface – real name Brad Terrance Jordan – just moments after he accepted a “I Am Hip Hop” award at the show. He’s been jailed on “child support contempt,” and he’ll stay there until he coughs up $482,190 for child support, attorney’s fees and interest.
Wiley told BOSSIP she didn’t want to comment on the case, but we’ve learned Scarface’s back child support tally was the result of him not paying any child support to Wiley even though a judge ordered him to back in 2003 when Wiley sued him for paternity and child support. He was court ordered to pay her $3,500 a month for their son.
“I’m not interested in talking to the media or sharing details about our son and our case,” Wiley said in an email to BOSSIP.
In total, Scarface owes Wiley $402,500 in back child support, 12 percent interest, or $48,300, $20,144 in lawyer’s fees and $11,246 for the private investigator she had to hire to track him down.
