The Associated Press reports that R&B star Jermaine Dupri, an ex of Janet Jackson, is being sued by his baby mama! An Atlanta-area woman is suing the producer, who has created songs for Usher and Mariah Carey over the years, over missed child support payments!
In March, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Margaret Dorsey told Dupri to pay $2,500 a month and an additional $7,500 to Sarai Jones, based on the results of a paternity test.
Jones' attorney, Randy Kessler, said Jones hopes that she and Dupri "can work together to co-parent their beautiful baby girl," who is 7 months old. Dupri's lawyer, James Kane, declined to comment.
Here's the ugly financial nitty gritty: The lawsuit was filed at a time when Dupri is facing some incredible financial troubles. His mansion was up for foreclosure and set to be auctioned last week, but that sale was canceled last minute. WSB-TV obtained records from the Georgia Department of Revenue, saying that Dupri owes the state more than $493,000 in back taxes for 2007.
In 2006, Forbes.com listed Dupri as one of hip-hop scenes richest players, earning $12 million that year. My, how things have unfortunately changed.
