Rapper T.I. has been ordered by a judge in Georgia to pay more child support to the mother of his two older sons:

A judge on Tuesday ordered rapper T.I. to pay more child support to the mother of two of his children after she claimed he wasn’t providing enough money.Superior Court Judge Bensonetta Tipton Lane told the two-time Grammy winner, whose real name is Clifford Harris, to pay just over $3,000 a month to LaShon Dixon. He had been paying about $2,000 per month.

The judge also said the 27-year-old performer must continue to pay for the boys to attend private school, uninsured medical bills and expenses related to the children’s extracurricular activities.Tipton Lane also awarded the couple on Tuesday joint custody of the boys, ages 7 and 8. Dixon, 28, was granted primary physical custody. The children previously spent about 40 percent of their time with the rapper.

Dixon’s attorney, Randy Kessler, said his client is still unsatisfied with the amount the judge ordered T.I. to pay but is happy to receive more child support.

“Every little bit helps,” Kessler said. “She was just getting by with the children, while they lived a different life with their father. It can’t be complete opposites on the other side.”

An e-mail to one of T.I.’s lawyers was not immediately returned Tuesday.

He also has two sons with his fiancee, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, of the defunct R&B group Xscape.

  1. if ti take care of his kids and her to he just need to stop taking care of her keep take care of the kids no matter what he get them anyway right that all she would get is the 3,000. he got to take care of his kids and wife to be not her she can get her a real man she’s not spending 3,000 on her 2 boys and ti spending on them too she should pay her own bills I LOVE YOU T.I YOUR SEXXY

  2. ALL I WANT TO KNOW IS IF SHE IS SUPPORTING HER SONS ON $2000 A MONTH, HOW IS SHE SUPPORTING HERSELF?? I READ HE PAYED FOR A DOWN PAYMENT ON A HOUSE, SHE HAS TO PAY THE BILLS, HE BOUGHT A CAR FOR TRANSPORTATION, SHE HAS TO GET GAS AND INSURANCE. MOST SOURCES SAY SHE DOESNT WORK..WHERE IS THE MONEY COMING FROM??…JUST SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT I PERSONALLY THINK HE OWES “HER” NOTHING. WHAT IT COMES DOWN TO IS SOME OF YOU ARE SAYING THAT BECAUSE HE GOT HER PREGNANT HE SHOULD TAKE CARE OF HER AND GIVE HER THE LIFESTYLE SHE WANTS. LET ME ASK U SOMETHING IF YOU GOT PREGNANT BY A GUY AND LATER ON DOWN THE LINE IT DIDNT. HE FOUND SOMEONE NEW AND THEY HAD A FAMILY. YOU WANT HIM TO TAKE CARE OF HIS FAMILY AND YOURS?? NA..ITS JUST HIS POSITION AS A CELEB WITH MONEY. YOU THINK BECAUSE HE GOT IT YOU DESERVE SOME OR HE OWE YOU SOMETHING. THATS BULL!! AND THE THING ABOUT EQUAL HOUSEHOLDS..PLEASE..ARE U SERIOUS? I AM PRETTY SURE HIS SONS UNDERSTAND WHY MAMA CANT GET EVERYTHING DADDY CAN. THE HOUSEHOLDS WILL NEVER BE EQUAL NOT WITH HIS LIFESTYLE. ALRIGHT I AM FINISHED..JMHO!!

  3. It doesn’t cost $3,000 a month to raise two children. many families raise kids on much less. some people have more fortune that others, but regardless, it does not take that much money a month for kids. i have children of my own and am lucky to bring in about $1400 a month. but my bills are paid, my kids are well fed and clothed, they have a roof over their heads, medical insurance and they get what they need and some of the things they want. mr harris should help and i put emphasis on this (HELP) in the financial needs of his children. But to not be satisfied with $3000 a month, this woman is obviously money hungry and wants mr harris to support her lifestyle not her children! greed is one of the seven deadly sins, i hope she doesnt teach greed to her children!

    Why should there be a fair experience between the two homes if the mother is not working and not the father’s wife? While I agree that a father should take responsibility for his children no matter what, my home reflects MY income.

    If my mate makes a contribution to my lifestyle during a relationship, then I was lucky; no more, no less. Once that relationship is over, it’s OVER, and from then on it’s up to me to finance the lifestyle I want for myself and – in this case – my children.

    If T.I. is paying her $3,000 plus all the extras that I’ve read about in the press, then he’s doing his job imho. If she wants more, then she needs to get one (a job that is!).

    If she wanted more access to the assets he accrued during their relationship, she should have held out for her M.R.S. before she dropped the B.A.B.Y.

  5. I know most of the story because I’ve talked to his baby mama a couple times on myspace. She’s really nice and is genuinely a good person. Of course Ti is going to try to protray the “GOOD MAN” image. People he just got arrested for Felony gun charges… Let’s NOT forget that

  6. All men lie when they say they have not paid for Pu**y. Because they pay for it one way or the other. It’s just life.

  7. Ladies, ladies, calm down! I love it! Freedom of speech at its best!! And today is Will Smith’s birthday, we should all rejoice!!
    Anyway, I’m not a babymama or a mother or a wife but I know all 3 and for her to say she still wasn’t satisfied, well all I’m saying is that she needs to take that up with the courts who she sought in the 1st place. Ya’ll making me not want to have kids!!

  8. He’s in the situation because she’s greedy and want to live the glamorous life. She needs a job so that she can contribute

  10. Just saying, sorry that you’re unhappy!! It is you’re not your, so who’s the stupid one? I’m just saying. All that matters is the man is taking care of his kids. Next!! You have made my day because I’m for sure your keys on the keyboard are screaming from how hard you’re hitting them. I will not entertain your ignorance any more!! LMAO at Just Sayin!!

  12. HappyGoLucky If he knew this his ass wouldn’t be in the situation
    he is in now, so that means that your stupid and your comments are stupid.

  13. Just sayin you’re the jackass because yes you did say you were not agreeing or disagreeing but at the end you’re trying to give TI advice on something he already knows. Well we know you’re not intelligent!

  14. Jaymele, she is so right girl I mean those broads want someone to struggle with them. I agree Black men need to step up and say baby I am going to take care of you and the kids. It has nothing to do with being lazy, it has more to do with comfort.

  15. Jaymele, don’t even waist your breath on them. They have the crabs in a barrel mentality. They,re all struggling babymamas and so they wanna see T.I.s babymom struggle like they do

  16. Excuse me I have never been refered to as a babymama… I have a son name Christain who refers to me as his Mother I have a husband named Sayvion whom refers to me as his wife and I have never recieved child support b/c we are MARRIED. And as far as Lazy I do work (by choice of course) as a media buyer for a very successful Advertising agency…Therefore I am not on a Lazy babymama tip as you so call it…Just thinks she is entitled to her share as well as her childrens Having kids these days are to hard and she might even need a little more as far a I am concern $3000 aint nothing but my bills in one month that is not living nice by any means you ladies act like she is get 300,000 a month

  17. I thought this was freedom of speech. I never read the respondes that anyone on here acted like they were paying the money. All hail to the real mothers out there holding it down.Rhaheem Davaugh Said it best.

  18. BABYMnM keep my name off the tip of your figures….I am entitled to my own opinon and I think he should have to pay taking care of two kids is a Job and hell everyone knows that black women are capable of raising kids and working but it about time we didnt have to a mans place is to be a provider that is THE WORD…If she dont wanna work she dont have to as long as the best interest of those kids are in her heart she can be unemployeed to they grown

  19. its funny people are acting like the judge told them to pay this money, stop calling this girl names if she work or dont she went to court got the money the END.

  20. Jaymele no one is hating it’s the fact that the mother does not work and wants to live off those boys money. That just like my husband has a project chick for a baby mamma and she is jealous of how we live that thing doesn’t want to work. If you want to live how we live get a job. Before I met my husband I had a house and my daughter goes to private school. She has sickel cell I was taking care of her own my own. Jealous Oh please Hating Oh please.

  21. OMG I need to move out of Florida to GA if it is like that. Because we don’t have judges like that here. Dang who wants to sit on their ass and not work because that money will run out one day. I am truly blessed to be able to take care of my daughter without the chump change I have been getting from her father.By the time my daughter gets ready to go to college in 7years her bank account will be FAT. So since she is not working I hope she is putting some of that money away NOT. By the time they get 18 they not going to have anything since they have a lazy ass mother.

  22. I agree with U he is taken care of them money wise while she just sits and get paid. Get off your lazy butt and go get a job so U can help take care of the children. There are a lot of us that don’t get hardly any more for support that make it work. I get 85 a week for my 5 year old and that’s nothing. And she crying about getting only $3000. Woman that have these kids by the rich boys should really think about the affect that it’s having on the child.

  23. Ms.Dixon is very ungrateful, TI could be like these other deadbeat fathers with money, and he put a downpayment on her car and house she needs to count her blessings, But He should get Physical custody of them!

  24. Oh I’m sorry let me add Ms Dixon also has to pay rent, electric, water, house maintenance as well oh but wait she would have to pay them if she lived on her own anyway!

  25. I’m not going to go off and call Ms Dixon names BUT I’m just curious, if T.I. is paying for education, extracurricular activities, medical insurance and in a previous article claimed to also pay for her car and the down payment on her home then if my calculations are correct all she has to pay is for their food and clothes, right? Maybe its me but that’s not bad considering mothers with 1-3 kids do all that anyway so how is $3K not enough? I mean I know she won’t respond but inquiring minds want to know. And let me just say for the record I’m not saying he shouldn’t pay this amount because it is what the judge awarded based on income but the “she’s still unsatisfied” quote threw me for a loop!

  26. I think I’ve pretty much been Team TI during this whole thing. But the truth is, even though TI had an statement issued telling us some of the details, we don’t know the entire story. Still, from what we know, I think this woman should have been grateful to have a father that not only spent a great deal of time with his children but also greatly supported his children without the courts involvment and was helping her with things that benefited her too like the house and car. Being there physically 40% of the time and being there financially almost 100% is not an even balance. But anyway, even the decision is unfair, look at this way… TI was ordered to pay an extra $1,000 a month. That’s $12,000 a year. To TI, that’s not a lot of money. I hope that this doesn’t affect their parenting. It may be unfair, but $12,000 to a man who is worth millions shouldn’t be worth the drama. I hope he pays it and just keeps it moving. His kids will not be able to say one day that wasn’t there and didn’t care.

  27. HappyGoLucky – you need to read before commiting next time
    I said that “I’m not agreeing or disagreeing with the situation”
    jack ass

  28. I wouldn’t say she should have to work if the kids were under 5, but her kids are older and in school most of the day so yes she does need to work. She doesn’t have to get a traditional 9 to 5, but she does need to do something to supplement what T.I. is already giving her. I think her problem is that she’s looking at the Kim Porters, and Shaniqua Thompkins and probably even Tiny and she’s envying their lifestyle. Never live your life watching the next woman. She has no idea what those women have to deal with. She has a sweet situation so she better learn to appreciate it before it’s too late. It’s been said that people riding in first class aren’t happy because they’d rather be riding in private jets….WE FORGET TO COUNT OUR BLESSINGS.

  29. This is a good thing for both parents and the boys. The kids will continue to benefit from the lifestyle they’ve been accustomed to via TI. He now has joint custody and that’s important to a man that really like spending time with his kids. The mother gets a support increase. Everything is now finalized and documented.

  30. I’m a single mom with absolutely no support and I can honestly say this is shady as all get out. One thing if he wasn’t taking care of his kids but he’s playing $2000 plus (if I’m reading correctly) having to take care of other expenses that’s crazy even if he’s a celebrity and would be a bit differnet if he wasn’t in their lives.

    She has a responsibility for the “lifestyle” she wants for her son’s when they’re not in his care. That’s crazy if they’re strugging in her care it’s a reflection of what she’s doing with their money….at least from me being on the outside looking in.

  31. Just sayin if you read his statement before going to court, he stated that he pays for everything else already. He even pay her car note every month and gave her the down payment for her new home so he is doing for his boys. Lashon needs to get a dang job!! Make sure you read every thing before commenting next time.

  32. I’m not agreeing or disagreeing with the situation, but I’m a single mother of one and its hard as hell to raise just my one child and I have been doing it by myself since day one, children require alot of time and money if they are into sports, extra things at school etc. just getting clothes and shoes is a big deal. I have 2 jobs and I have learned to go with out just so my son can play sports and all of the extra things kids like to do.

    T I – just a bit of advice, your a celeb and like the finer things in life for your family get custody of your boys and you will see that it will cost you MORE than 3,000 a month to take care of these boys in your home.

  33. Her lawyer said she was just getting by maybe if she had a job she would have her own money. She should have been ordered to get a job. She is so wrong and she’s still not happy. That tells me she’s thinking of herself not her kids.
