The Chicago rapper, who was sentenced to juvenile detention on Jan. 17, is now facing a lawsuit by a middle school student who claims she got impregnated by Chief Keef back in 2011! Read on for more of the shocking details.
The legal trouble is never ending for Chicago rapper Chief Keef, whose real name is Keith Cozart. A woman who claims to be Chief’s baby mama says he fathered a baby girl with her back in 2011 — when he was 15 years old, TMZ is reporting.
Even though the girls’ age is unclear, she is currently still a middle school student — which means she was in 8th grade (at most) when she welcomed her child, but most likely in 6th or 7th grade.
Chief Keef Facing Possible Sexual Abuse Charges For Underage Relationship
In Illinois, where Chief Keef lives, it’s a misdemeanor for two people under the age of 17 to have a sexual relationship, even if it is consensual. Under the law, the older person commits “criminal sexual abuse” when both parties are between the ages of 9 and 17.
The maximum punishment for the crime is one year in jail and being forced to register as a sex offender for 10 years. But luckily for the rapper — who has worked with Kanye West, Young Jeezy, and Rick Ross — these cases are rarely prosecuted. And since Chief Keef’s alleged baby mama’s parents haven’t filed sex abuse charges against him yet, they probably won’t.
But the girl is still suing the rapper for child support, health insurance and other medical expenses — although the amount of child support was not disclosed.
On Jan. 17, Chief Keef was sentenced to 60 days in a juvenile detention facility for violating probation stemming from gun charges.
