AceShowbiz - Future's son Jakobi Wilburn was reportedly released from jail on Tuesday, March 24. According to a new report, Future bailed the 17-year-old out after he was arrested in January on several charges that included criminal gang activity, criminal trespass and gun possession.
A source confirms to MTO News that Future and Jessica Smith, with whom he shares Jakobi, paid the bail. However, the boyfriend of Lori Harvey is said not to be present to greet his son when he was out from jail.
Back in February, it was reported that in January Kobi was found in possession of a gun with the serial numbers scratched off, leading to him being charged of the altered ID of a gun. Even though he is still a teenager, the state of Georgia considers 17-year-old as adults. Thus, if he's convicted, Kobi is facing five to twenty years in prison on the gang activity charge alone.
"Our son is a minor and to protect his well being in this trying situation, we ask that everyone please respect our privacy at this time," Jessica told TMZ at the time.
Now the teen is being tried as an aduly under Georgia's stringent gang laws, though a trial date has yet to be set.
It seemed like Future and Jessica managed to put their differences aside to work together for Kobi. Back in 2013, she filed a suit against the rapper and accused him of lying about his true net worth to keep his child support payments down. He was paying $1,662 based off his claim he brought in $16,000 a month from work. She said his actual income was in excess of $50,000 and demanded the child support be increased.
Future later blasted his baby mama and demanded her child support request be shut down by the judge. He also said that he never lied about his income and his payments should remain the same. In addition to that, he sought to get joint physical custody of Kobi. After several months of back and forth in court, Future and Jessica finally reached a settlement agreement and the case was closed. Per the deal, the two shared joint custody and Future agreed to pay $2,800 in child support.
