Akon has been ordered by a judge to pay $5,000 in child supports for two of his six children by three different mothers.
Akon has reportedly been told to pay $5,000 per month in child support.
The music artist was ordered to give out the sum 12 times each year after he declared his income of more than $40,000 per month.
Akon has previously filed a paternity case against Rozina Negusei because he wanted the court to legally recognise him as father to their two young sons, according to TMZ.
The agreement was to establish custody and child support of the mother of his children, who is not his current partner.
The singer listed his income in the paperwork as $40,708 per month.
Based on that amount a judge demanded him to pay what the system deemed appropriate for the kids’ mother to look after them.
Apparently the judge took into consideration that Akon makes six other child support payments.
Ultimately the other parent of Akon’s offspring received sole physical custody, according to the website.
The two will allegedly share legal custody and Akon additionally gets a say in all major decisions concerning the youngsters.
His income will cover health insurance for the two boys.
A source close to the 39-year-old star previously insisted that “Akon has been a father to the boys since they were born, and this is just a necessary step to make sure he is legally recognised as such.”
The R&B star allegedly also requested that the boys be eligible to inherit from him. He asked that the boys born in 2008 and 2009 keep his surname Thiam.
Akon has previously claimed that he has multiple children with three different women, maintaining he has healthy relationships with them all.
He also stated and that he wishes to keep his family protected from the media.
