Court Declined to Hear Diddy's Appeal



The state's highest court declined Tuesday to hear Diddy's appeal of a lower court decision ordering him to pay more than $19,000 a month in child sup

The New York Supreme Court has on Tuesday declined to hear the appeal brought by Diddy through which he demanded for a lower court decision ordering him to pay more than $19,000 a month in child support payments.

The hip hop star's ex-girlfriend Misa Hylton-Brim won a family court decision in Westchester County in October 2004, causing Diddy to pay for more than $35,000 a month to care for their 12-year-old son, Justin. The fashion stylist had sought to up the original $2,795 Diddy was originally ordered to pay in 1996. Besides, she also wanted to collect nearly $400,000 in back support.

Complaining the $35,000 monthly amount was the highest court-mandated child-support payment in U.S. history, Diddy then appealed. Soon thereafter, an appellate judge initially dropped the monthly payments to $21,782 and then reduced it further to $19,000.

But now, as the court declines to hear his appeal, Diddy will have to ready his checks.
