Rapper Beanie Sigel was briefly jailed Thursday until he paid about $27,000 in child support
It costs more than $26,000 cash to get famous rapper Beanie Sigel out from the prison. The singer, who has sold more than a million records, was sent to six months in prison Wednesday for failing to appear at a child support hearing.
A Philadelphia Family Court judge, however, said the rapper could get out if he pays $26,000 in child support to children by two different mothers and $2,000 in fines. Thus, the deal reached and Siegel was freed Thursday. Name and age of the mothers and children remain secret.
