In the words of Flavor Flav, “Wwwwooooooooowwwwww!!!!!!”
Public Enemy hype man turned reality TV star Flavor Flav (real name: William Drayton, Jr.) will soon answer to charges claiming that he owes $63,458 in back child support to the mother of three of his children. Back in 1996, Mary Parker had an agreement of the couple’s former two children being covered by an arranged payment schedule of $117 per week. However, Parker moved to have the agreement amended in July 2008 after the birth of a third child. She was successful with an appeal last month, and a judge ordered Flav’s weekly payment of $117 increased to $837.72, along with requirements to cover private school tuition fees dating back to the original 2008 amendment filing.
Flav, who celebrates his 51st birthday next month, explained that he will contest the order on the grounds that he’s made payments to his children’s mother beyond the court decreed amount.
“The judgment is recent as I was just made aware of it,” Flav stated to the NY Post. “I’ll certainly be addressing it. However, I’ve made payments on my children’s tuition, and have made direct payment to the mother outside of the court order.”
At press time, Flavor Flav’s Albany County child support case does not have a court date.
