Jagged Edge’s Kyle Norman – Judge Sides With Baby Mama
theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reports, Jagged Edge singer Kyle Norman’s baby mama scored in her legal battle for child support – due to him blowing off a scheduled court date. The judge raised his child support and ordered him to begin paying the $53k he is in arrears for back support.
Here’s the latest: On October 12th, the judge came back with his final order in the case and sided with the baby mama due to Kyle not showing up to court.
The order says a default against Norman is entered due to him not appearing in court, despite his baby mama attending the hearing.
According to the order, the judge ordered the child support to be raised from $575 a month to $897 a month, based off his monthly income of over $6k.
Further, the singer is currently $53,910 in arrears for back child support. He has been ordered to pay his baby mama until that debt is paid off.
Here’s the backstory: Earlier this year, the singer’s baby mama – Tabitha Dumas – filed suit against him in Georgia court demanding he be found in contempt & thrown in jail for owing over $50k in back child support.
Tabitha explained she is seeking to have her monthly child support from the original order requiring Kyle to pay $575 a month.
The two were never married but share a son named Kye, who was born in 1999. She believes that the singer’s income has increased substantially since the judge ordered him to pay the $575. Further, she claimed he owes her $50,750 in back support from 2008 to current.
The baby mama said he was willfully and voluntarily refusing to pay her the full amount per month in support. She said he also failed to reimburse her for 72% of their son’s medical expenses.
She sued, demanding the child support be increased permanently based on his income along with finding him in contempt and thrown in jail until he pays up on the $50k+ back support.
However, the Georgia Department of Human Services filed a separate court case following Tabitha’s lawsuit explaining they have conducted a review of the original court order which states the singer is to pay the $575 a month to his baby mama and they have come to the conclusion that the child support should be decreased due to Kyle’s current income.
The Department filed the case seeking to have the judge adopt their recommendations and lower the monthly support amount to be paid by the singer.
Tabitha responded, explaining that Kyle is a member of the R&B group “Jagged Edge”, and is a recording artist, believed to be receiving royalty income as well as income from his membership in that R&B group. Tabitha adds her baby daddy performs on several TV shows and receives income from those appearances.
The woman said she already filed a suit against Kyle and that case is still pending and the singer has yet to respond. She called this case is entirely unnecessary since she is already handling the child support issue.
The “Jagged Edge” singer’s baby mama demanded the judge not adopt the Agency’s recommendations to lower the support for their son and allow her to continue on with her case against him, along with attorney fees for having to fight in this case.
