Shad Moss, a.k.a. Bow Wow, may have major child support woes in the future. The rapper recently agreed to pay $3,000 per month out of his monthly $4,000 earned from employment with Cash Records to Joie Chavis, mother of Shai Moss. In addition, the judge ordered Bow Wow to pay $11,500 in back pay for all the support missed during these past few months.
Although Shad’s consignment to give over 50% of his income plus back pay seems admirable at first glance, some media outlets are claiming that Bow Wow played the system and won. According to TMZ, Moss scored a major gig in being named host of BET’s ‘106 & Park’ shortly after the hearing. Bow Wow’s new job will bring in hundreds more than $4,000 per month, making his actions in court questionable.
The judge will definitely have questions for Moss when the final decision on child support payments is made in December. Shai is Shad and Joi’s only child together.
