Agreement Reportedly Reached In Rick Ross' Messy Child Support Battle With Baby Mama Over Son — Full Details

Rick Ross and his baby momma, Tia Kemp, may be on the same page at long last. Thank goodness, because their relationship has been a total mess; they have been exchanging nasty jabs on social media for years.

The duo have a 12-year-old son together and they have also definitely had some issues over custody, which have been made public. But maybe their issues are all in the past now?

TheBlast claims that pair came to an agreement in regards to Tia’s request for an increase in child support payments. Rick will reportedly send the money to Tia, but the exact amount must remain confidential. They seem to have sorted this out during mediation, which apparently also resolved other outstanding woes.

That is really great, actually!

The child support battle has been going on for ages. Tia initially sued him in 2007 but they reached a settlement in 2010, though she has reportedly been trying to get an increase in child support payments from 2015 onward, when she insisted that her ex has been making more money (compared to the numbers that were crunched when this was worked out in 2010).

Rick Ross was reportedly paying $1,950 a month for child support and Tia wanted to increase it to $2,800 per month.

Back in April, there was more than a small sliver of messiness going on between the two.

“It hurts me to see my child hurt. Can you imagine having a celeb father, and when he’s in town, he goes all these other places, but can’t come to one of your football games? It’s sad.” Tia had stated, after accusing the industry powerhouse of “abandoning” their child.

Rick then tried to paint Tia as being a freeloader who is "upset that [he would] not cede to her financial demands so that she can live off of child support rather than obtain employment.” He also asked a judge to make Tia hire a third-party to review all of her social media posts before they are made public, to ensure she could not do any more damage to his reputation.


Tia once talked about their dynamic during a Skype appearance on “The Queens Court" podcast, stating, “I was married when I was with him. I’m going to be honest. I’m keeping it real baby. My ex-husband was in prison and that was the only thing that separated us."

"He doesn’t know how to hurt me anymore so he’s using our kid to attack me that’s what he’s doing. But, people on the outside can’t see that. Just because of his platform. Of course everyone is going to look at me as the bitter baby mama… I’m over that. I’m over that stage of being hurt. It’s time to step up and be the parent."

Truthfully, we hope that these two can keep the peace, if only for the sake of their kid.
