Reality Star Now Current On Child Support
“Black Ink’s” Caesar has escaped serving jail time in his back child support case.
Last week, a Manhattan Family Court judge spared Caesar – who was born David Emmanuel – from serving six months in jail after he was able to prove that he was up to date on his child support payments after owing more than $7,000 in support for his tween daughter.
But Judge Susan Knipps warned the tattoo shop owner turned reality star that if he fell behind on his payments again, she’d make him serve the original sentence of six months of weekends in the city jail.
Cops arrested Caesar last year for owing more than $15,000 in back child support after apparently ignoring the court order that requires him to hand over $360 a week for his daughter. Two weeks ago, the judge ripped Caesar for still owing $7,239.62 in back child support, and told him he’d be jailed if he didn’t pay off the full amount by May 6.
His baby mama, Crystal Torres, complained to the judge last month that Caesar hadn’t been making regular payments. But Ceasar’s lawyer, Andrew Plasse, said they’ve put it all behind them.
“He’s paid up to date and he’s two weeks ahead,” Plasse told BOSSIP. “He’s a good father and he loves his daughter very much. Everything is resolved.”
