Rick Ross And Tia Kemp Locked In Child Support Battle
Rick Ross’ baby mama has asked a judge to force the rapper to reveal how much money he makes as part of their child support case after she reported that she makes less than $500 a month.
Tia Kemp filed a motion July 1 to have the court force Ross, real name William Leonard Roberts, to list his income in a financial affidavit after she said he ignored her requests to come up with the evidence as part of their acrimonious child support case.
“Father has not filed a response to the request to produce, nor has he provided any responsive documents to the mother,” Kemp’s court papers, obtained by BOSSIP, state.
Kemp wants Ross to up her child support payments from the current $2,800 a month to pay for things for her son like counseling, tutoring and extracurricular activities. She has said in court papers that he can afford an increase, because his own income has shot up from his music sales and owning Wingstop franchises.
Kemp said she works as a real estate agent, but is only bringing in $485 a month because she works on commission. She also said that she has just $20 in cash on hand.
However, her monthly expenses totaled more than $15,000 for things like a $2,200 mortgage or rental payment and $1,350 on her car. She said she needs $1,000 a month for vacations because she’d like to take their son on two holidays – one to learn, and one for fun – as well as $1,500 a month on the boy’s clothing, $200 on grooming, $120 on pet expenses and $200 on books.
The news comes as a judge ruled last month that Ross would have to pay the $2,100 a month tuition for his son’s six week summer camp, and could have his son for a two week visit when summer camp gets out.
