Trick Says He Needs To Travel Outside U.S. To Make Money; Singer Filed For Bankruptcy Earlier This Year
Trick Daddy has headed back to court in his bankruptcy case to plead with a federal court judge to issue him a passport – so he can travel outside America to perform and make some cash because it’s his only hope to pay off his debts and his child support.
The rapper filed for bankruptcy on September 18th saying he had $430,420 in assets but a total of $644,613 in liabilities.
Trick Daddy listed his assets as his Miramar, FL home, ZERO dollars in his bank accounts, $2,500 in household goods, $150 in wearing apparel, $400 in jewelry and $10,000 stock in his music publishing company Trick-N-Rick.
However, his liabilities include $280,000 on his first mortgage, $1,200 in home maintenance, $34,837 in back child support to one mother, another $22,282 in more late child support, $290,000 to the IRS in back taxes, $1,308 to DirecTV, more than $3,000 in credit card debt, more than $500 to a collection agency for an AT&T bill and various other unpaid debts.
The bankruptcy was a tad confusing given the fact that Trick Daddy had assets that were close to the amount he owed in liabilities. However, it appears that the rapper may have filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy to avoid being put out on the streets.
Then on December 11th, Trick Daddy filed docs in his bankruptcy case pleading with the court to order the Florida Department of Revenue to grant him a passport to travel outside the U.S.
He explained that his bankruptcy deal states he has to pay back child support and stay current with his monthly support payments … and he needs the passport to travel so he can perform and make some cash overseas.
The judge has yet to make a decision on Trick Daddy’s plea.
