Rapper Accused Of Squiring Secret Daughter; State Attorney General Wants Him To Pay Up
Georgia’s top cop has sued Rocko in order to force him to provide for a little girl that he allegedly fathered, BOSSIP has learned.
The state’s special assistant attorney general sued the “U.O.E.N.O.” rapper in January, naming him as being legally responsible for providing support for the little girl, who BOSSIP is not naming. The attorney general’s office got involved after the girl’s mother, Tinashel Phillips, put her on the Medicaid rolls, according to court papers obtained by BOSSIP.
The mom said in court papers she had a relationship with Rocko, and wasn’t with any other man at the time the child was conceived. The child was born in 2006. She said Rocko has made sporadic child support payments but hasn’t consistently been in her daughter’s life.
But Phillips did say that he has given her $2,000 over the years, and has seen the child at least seven times. The mom also said her daughter looks exactly like Rocko.
The mom said she makes $2,000 a month working as a chef plus receives an extra $250 a month in child support for another kid. She said she needs $650 a month to support the girl, according to her complaint.
The Attorney General’s Office has previously sued Rocko over supporting the child, but a judge dismissed the case in 2016.
Rocko had 30 days to respond to the case but never did, and he’s now in danger of being put into default. A judge has ordered Rocko to appear in court next month in order to explain why the state attorney general’s requests are granted.
The state’s attorney wants the 39-year-old to immediately begin supporting the girl, provide insurance, and if he denies that the girl is hers, to take a DNA test.
Rocko has yet to respond to the case.
