According to TMZ, Master P was ordered to pay $271 in child support to his ex-wife Sonya for not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 CHILDREN! Why so little you ask? Well, Master P, real name Percy Miller managed to convince the court that his monthly income is only $1,387. Master P has a total of SIX children and his child support battle with his ex-wife is far from over.
Of course, we all know that Master P brings in waaaayyyyy more than 1400 bucks a month, but this “documented” income strategy is one that is used often among high profile rappers/actors/entertainers. This method has been used to “shield” their income as a means to protect their assets from their “baby mamas.” Sometimes the father is just being greedy, and sometimes there is a concern that the money will not be used to support the child.
Based on what I know of Master P, he’s a pretty stand up guy and I’m sure he’ll do right by his kids. I’ll keep you updated!
