Rapper Future to pay baby mom Eliza Reign $3,200 as monthly support for one-year-old daughter after court order
Reign's lawyer said that his client disagrees with the court's decision as they have evidence that is contradictory to the rapper's claims about his monthly earnings
American rapper Future, who was recently sued by his baby mother Eliza Reign over child support after the DNA paternity test came back positive, has been ordered by a Florida judge to pay $3,200 a month for his one-year-old daughter. However, the amount of sum is much less than what Reign had initially demanded. Reign had sought Future to pay around $53,000 a month for their daughter. This amount, according to Reign's lawyer, Brandon Rotbart, was finalized based on Future's reported income. Rotbart said that his client disagrees with the court's decision as they have evidence that is contradictory to the rapper's claims about his monthly earnings. According to Future, he's only making $30,000 a month.
Earlier, while speaking to bossip.com, Reign's lawyer said that his client is hopeful of getting all documentation from the rapper, like his banking, credit card and other financial information, so that the final child support amount becomes substantially higher. As the court orders regarding child support are temporary and can be modified any time, Reign and her lawyer are now planning to depose Future further in order to grill him about his finances in an attempt to increase the child support amount. As reported earlier, Reign sued Future for paternity, child support and custody last year after accusing him of being the father of her one-year-old. Future, after months of delay, finally agreed to a DNA test which came back positive, proving the rapper is indeed the father of Reign's baby.
The case had various other developments as Future filed a separate federal lawsuit against Reign for defamation, accusing her of soiling his reputation and lying about him. Reign denied all allegations of wrongdoing and argued that her version of the events is true and, hence, she cannot be held liable for any defamation lawsuit. The rapper then dismissed the lawsuit and all claims made by Reign. This news comes days after rumors of Future splitting with his girlfriend Lori Harvey, 23, came to the fore. On the music front, the rapper recently released his sixth consecutive No 1 album, 'High Off Life', which spawned the smash hit 'Life is Good' featuring Drake. He's also set to drop a new mixtape titled 'Super Slimey: Surfer Edition' along with Young Thug, Lil Baby and Gunna.
