An Atlanta woman is taking rapper Yung Joc to court for back payment of child support. Yung Joc’s baby mama, Fatimah Jester, broke down during a taped segment on the Channel 2 Action News tonight. She discussed her failed efforts to collect late child support payments from the rapper.
Jester said she didn’t want to sue Yung Joc but she needed money to raise their son. She dabbed at her eyes with tissue as she sat with her attorney, Randall M. Kessler, in the living room of her tidy suburban Atlanta home.
“I never would have thought he would be putting me through some of the stuff that I’m going through now,” she cried. “I can’t even get in contact with him when I need the things that I need for my baby. It’s just hard.”
Jester is suing Joc for unpaid child support. She said he only paid $500 of the court ordered $2,000 monthly payments last month. According to Jester, Joc is always late with his payments. “For the type of money that he makes, $2,000 is nothing,”. She reeled off the list of luxury vehicles Yung Joc owns or leases: “Bentleys, Ferraris, Mercedes Benzes, two Range Rovers.”
Her attorney added, “She wants him to know, ‘if you pay what you’re supposed to pay, you’ll never hear from me again… But as soon as you stop, I’m going to be there protecting my kid.’”
Jester noted it’s especially hard on a young boy who rarely gets to see his famous father. “When you have a child that you - when you look in their eyes and they ask ‘mama, can you call daddy?’ and when you try to call daddy and we can never get in contact with him, that hurts.”
