Juvenile Arrested in New Orleans for Failing to Pay Child Support
It looks like Juvenile may need some cash money. On Saturday (June 17), the rap vet was arrested and booked in New Orleans for failing to pay child support, reports NOLA.com.
Apparently, the 42-year-old rapper owes 154,000 to his baby’s mother, Dionne Williams, for support of their teenage son. Juvie is currently being held at the Orleans Justice Center Jail on $150,000 bond.
Documents revealed that Juvenile, whose real name is Terius Gray, has owed $155,000 since 2012. He is credited for paying $20,000 in 2017. A judge told Juvie that if he doesn't catch up on child support payments she will sentence him to 90 days in jail.
Juvenile's arrest on Saturday comes at a big inconvenience for the rapper. The former Hot Boys member is scheduled to perform a rap show with fellow Louisiana rapper Mystikal in Houston tonight. He might have to call Jay Z to help him with the bail. We are just saying.
Reps for Juvenile had no comment on the matter.
