Jail Time for Flavor Flav? Rapper Reportedly Not Paying Child Support
William Jonathan Drayton, Jr. (better known as Flavor Flav) is facing jail time for failing to come up with $111,186 in child support payments for three of his seven kids, according to the New York Daily News.
Flav is required to pay $837.72 a week to Angie Parker of Albany, N.Y. Parker is the mother of the three children noted in this case. A court official said Flav's failure to pay child support was declared "a willful violation."
An Albany County magistrate recommended a 180-day jail sentence. After the Public Enemy and Surreal Life star failed to show up for a hearing this week, the revocation of his driver’s license and passport was also recommended.
Unfortunately, this isn't the first time Flav has had trouble in this area; in 2010, Parker took her kids' father to court, asking for the $63,458 he owed at the time. In 2009, Karen Ross-Fortunate, the mother of three of Flav's other children, accused him publicly of failing to pay child support.
