Mos Def Ordered to Pay More on Child Support



A New York judge on Thursday ordered to make good on $10,000-a-month payments to his estranged wife, Maria Yepes-Smith

Rapper Mos Def has been ordered by a New York judge to pay $10,000-a-month payments to ex-wife Maria Yepes-Smith, to care for their seven- and eight-year-old daughters. That is the result of the hip-hop star failing to pay checks to Yepes-Smith as part of their divorce settlement.

Mos actually was supposed to send checks to Yepes-Smith by Jan 1st, but due to financial problems the two checks he has sent so far have fallen short by about $2,000. Things get worse as Def also has three other kids to care for. "It's the best he can do under the circumstances. He has several children. He's always provided for them." So his attorney Steven Goldfeder explained.

In an attempt to defend his client, Goldfeder then asked Judge Sarah Krauss to reduce the payments for Yepes-Smith, claming she reneged on a promise to home school the girls. Though, it takes time for the judge to consider the demand before finally comes to the right decision.
