It looks like mo' money mo' problems for Chief Keef. The budding Chicago rap star is going to have to reach deep into his designer jeans to pay child support to a middle school-aged girl that he knocked up back in 2011.

According to TMZ, a judge has ordered the "I Don't Like" rapper to pay $2,600 a month in child support plus $500 in daycare expenses and $10,400 in back child support pay. Keef, real name Keith Cozart, reportedly got the girl pregnant when he was only 15. The young mom sued Keef earlier this year, seeking monthly support, health care and medical expenses for the couple's daughter. A hearing is scheduled for next month, where the terms will be finalized.

The judge in case may have considered Keef’s recent surge in income (reportedly $13,000 per month) when weighing the decision. It has been widely reported that Keef inked a lucrative $6 million record deal with Interscope last year. There is now chatter that he's the latest celebrity to garner his own line of Beats by Dre headphones. The rapper gave fans a preview of the Beats by Keef headphones on his Instagram account. There is no word on when the sea blue, red and white (the colors of his hometown flag) headphones will hit stores.
