Rapper Bow Wow has been ordered by a court to cough up money for child support for his one-year-old daughter, but he reportedly withheld critical financial information from the judge stemming from his lucrative BET deal.
According to reports, 25-year-old Bow Wow and his baby mama Joie Chavis were in court Monday, battling over exactly how much the rapper is worth and how much child support he has to pay to help cover the expenses of his daughter, Shai.
Bow Wow — whose real name is Shad Gregory Moss — told the judge that he makes $4,000 a month working as an employee at Cash Money Records. He also testified that he leases a Jeep and has a grand total of $1,500 in his checking account.
But after some haggling, he voluntarily agreed to cough up $3,000 a month in support for baby Shai.
Once the child support hearing adjourned, Bow Wow was formally named as the host of BET’s long-running, popular and hip-hop show “106 & Park.” However, the rap star allegedly made no mention of the BET position.
The judge in the case of the rapper is said to have some tough questions for Bow Wow in December, when the court rules on a permanent child support order.
In the meantime, the judge also ordered the rapper to pay $11,500 in back child support.
Calls to the rapper’s rep were not immediately returned.
As Lil’ Bow Wow, the rapper released his first album, “Beware of Dog” in 2000 at age 13, which was followed by “Doggy Bag” 2001. In 2003, he released his third album “Unleashed,” which was the first album released without using Lil’ in his name.
Bow Wow made his first movie appearance in “All About the Benjamins,” in 2002 as a cameo. In the same year, he made his debut as the lead role in “Like Mike.” He later began to undertake lead roles in movies, such as “Johnson Family Vacation” in 2004 and “Roll Bounce” in 2005. He also played a supporting role in the film “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift” in 2006. The rapper also appeared in five episodes of the television series “Entourage.”

“Like Mike” star Bow Wow has now been allowed to go back to Georgia again after settling the dispute with a tour bus company over an unpaid bill.
According to previous reports, hip-hop singer Bow Wow was accused of failing to pay more than $92,749 bill to a tour bus company who worked with him in 2009. The company went back to Bow Wow and he was then held in contempt for failing to adhere to a court order to pay up his debt.
The tour bus company honchos moved the dispute to the rapper’s home state of Georgia and in February, a judge issued a warrant for his arrest – meaning Bow Wow, who was on tour at the time, would be detained on sight if he stepped back into his native region.
However, a notice filed in a Georgia court reveals the dispute has now been settled as Bow Wow has just paid his bill from the tour bus company in full.
It’s unclear if the arrest order for the rapper has explicitly been lifted.

It seems like rapper Bow Wow is in another web of money trouble – not to mention another lawsuit! After Bow Wow was declared a three-time tax lien in Florida in 2006 and in Georgia in 2008 and 2010 due to unpaid taxes, plus avoiding a civil lawsuit from a tour bus company who claims Bow Wow failed to pay them, here comes yet another lawsuit from a limousine company.
According to the lawsuit filed this week in Georgia, Bow Wow (real name Shad Gregory Moss,) defrauded a limousine company amounting to a sum of $3,594.87. Sources say the bill that Bow Wow owns the limousine company goes all the way back to 2008 and stems from services provided to him in California.
As of the time being, calls to the rep of Bow Wow regarding the lawsuit have not been returned yet.
Rapper Bow Wow started his music and acting career at 13 years old, where he released his very first album called ‘Beware of Dog’ in 2000. Bow also appeared in a number of movies like ‘All About the Benjamins’ and ‘The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.’

Until when will rapper Bow Wow avoid a particular lawsuit that has been filed against him? Well, it looks like it will not be for a very long time. Bow Wow has escaped the lawsuit and the hands of the police for a quite some time, and now a judge in Georgia has ordered for Bow Wow to be arrested and held in custody until Bow Wow produces documents and information to the other side regarding the lawsuit he faces.
Back in 2009, Bow Wow was ordered by a Tennessee court to pay an amount which sums up to almost $100,000 to a tour bus company who filed the lawsuit and allegedly claims that Bow Wow failed to pay his bill with them. The said tour bus company then took the case to Georgia where Bow Wow lives, in the hopes of trying to get the Georgia court to enforce the judgment for the lawsuit.
Bow Wow was ordered to produce documents with regard to the lawsuit filed against him, but he failed to do so, yet again. As a result, the tour company filed a motion to have Bow Wow held in contempt.
Then in October of 2011, the Georgia judge granted the motion for the lawsuit and ordered Bow Wow to be arrested and held until the rapper produces the necessary documents the tour bus company is asking for.
As of the moment, Bow Wow has not been taken into custody nor has the singer even responded to the lawsuit. Calls to Bow Wow’s reps were also not returned.
