theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reports, singer Lyfe Jennings battled it out in court with the mother of his newborn son for months. But now, they have reached a settlement in which he agreed to fork over $1,450 a month in child support.
Earlier this year, India Mendoza filed suit in Georgia against the singer accusing him of being the father of her newborn son. The child named Knoah Isaiah-Lee Mendoza was born this year and she demanded a court order for custody and support.
Lyfe admitted in court documents he was indeed the father of the newborn child that was born out of wedlock.
The two battled it out in court for months with India even filing an emergency motion for contempt against the singer. She accused Lyfe of violating a previous court order by writing a bad check that bounced when she tried to cash it. She demanded the singer be found in contempt of court and him pay her attorney fees for having to drag him to court.
Lyfe denied his check bounced and said she had been paid in full. He demanded he not be found in contempt of court for the check nor should he have to pay her attorney bill.
Then recently, docs were filed in the case explaining the singer and his baby mama India Mendoza reached an agreement in child support legal battle.
Per the agreement, Lyfe will pay $1,450 a month in support to India for their newborn.
The deal states the singer will get to claim the kid for tax benefits starting in 2017. The docs also reveal the singer’s monthly income is $15,833 a month vs. the baby mamas $1,740. He currently pays an additional $3,987 for 2 other children born in 2006.
Lyfe recently appeared on Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta with his then-girlfriend Karlie Redd.
