AceShowbiz - Rick Ross is facing a setback in his legal battle against his baby mama. Weeks after countersuing Briana Camille's paternity lawsuit with a request for joint custody of their two children, the "Aston Martin Music" hitmaker was hit with an order to provide her with $8,500 a month in temporary child support.
The 44-year-old rapper was, according Bossip, given the order to start the payment sometime in the second week of June. The order allegedly detailed that $6,000 of the total payment should go to the caring of three-year-old Berkeley and two-year-old Billion, the remaining $2,500 will be used to pay for the kids' nanny.
Aside from the $8,500, the Grammy nominee was also ordered to give $40,000 his pregnant ex to cover her legal fees. He should also hand out $23,337 for her expenses, which reportedly included $2,000 a month in groceries, $1,500 in rent and $600 in phone expenses. Their children's health insurance fell under his responsibility as well.
Ross' legal battle with Camille broke out in early May. At the time, Camille filed legal documents in her attempt to establish temporary and permanent child support for her two children with the rapper. In her complaint, she claimed that they abruptly split at the end of 2019, prompting her to leave his home with their two young kids.
Camille additionally requested a DNA test to prove that Ross is the father of her two children. In response, Ross' legal team accused the social media star of backing out when "The Boss" hitmaker had done his portion for the DNA test. Since then, the pair were claimed to have reached an agreement about the DNA test.
In late May, Ross sued Camille for dragging their case out. Seeking to get a joint custody of their two children, he reportedly accused his baby mama of keeping their children from him. In his filing, he also claimed that she refused to return a company car that he gave to her, and mentioned her "erratic" behavior.
