CNN’s Capone is catching some bad press this week as new reports claim he got arrested in his New Jersey home on charges related to child-support evasion.
Details on his arrest and comments made outside a court have surfaced online.
The rapper Capone was arrested yesterday on a child-support evasion charge after allegedly failing to pay more than $160,000 in support dating back to 2004. Capone, 36, whose real name is Kiam Holley, was released on a $10,000 personal-recognizance bond. He is supposed to pay $1,500 a month until his 12-year-old daughter turns 21. Prosecutors said Capone has made only three payments in eight years totalling just over $144. “It is what it is,” the rapper said outside court. “I know it looks bad on paper, but I take care of my daughter.” Capone was arrested in his Jersey home. Judge Joan Azrack said his travel will be restricted to New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
Last year, Southern rap veteran Scarface served time on a child support charge.
The former Geto Boys leader has since been moved to Harris County Jail as of last week where he is being held for two active child support warrants totaling $123,372. He also faces two other child support charges as well as charges from the federalgovernment. According to police documents obtained by XXLmag.com, bonds have been set on all four cases–one for $93,376, a second one for $50,000, another for $30,000 and the last one was set at $500. As of press time it is unclear how much longer Facemob is expected to spend behind bars, but a media relations rep for Harris County’s 7th precinct told XXL that he will be held until these women accusing him of not paying child support are compensated to some capacity.
I see said the blind man. And now…
Sometimes a rapper will be more likely to meet their Kush payment instead of their child support.
