Troubled teen rap star Chief Keef (pictured) was slapped with a child support lawsuit from an eighth-grader who is alleging that he fathered her 14-month-old baby, TMZ reports.
Keef, whose actual name is Keth Cozart, is named as the defendant is a suit that reportedly seeks day care expenses, health insurance, out-of-pocket health expenses, retroactive child support and the payment of legal fees that were incurred by the child’s mother, who had to have been around 12 or 13-years-old when she conceived the baby.
Though, according to TMZ, criminal action may not be taken on the young rapper:
In Illinois, it is considered a misdemeanor for two people under the age of 17 to have sex … even if they’re in a consensual relationship. When both parties are between 9 and 17 years old, the older person commits a crime called “criminal sexual abuse.”
Punishment for the crime includes a max sentence of one year in jail … and a requirement to register as a sex offender for ten years — but in reality, these cases are almost never prosecuted.
The most likely scenario in which Keef would face a judge is if the girl’s parents press charges — but if that hasn’t already happened, it probably won’t.
