Singer Accused Of Not Supporting Tween Son
This 90s crooner recently filed for bankruptcy, claiming that his home was in foreclosure and had just $1,000 in the bank.
But it looks like 112 singer Q Parker’s money troubles are no sign of ending after his son’s mother filed court papers blasting him for being a deadbeat dad and owing six figures in back child support, according to court records obtained by BOSSIP.
Leah Steele Barnett filed a motion for contempt against the “Cupid” singer last month, complaining that he hasn’t paid the court ordered $2,250 a month in child support since 2006. The debt swelled has up to $266,532, and she said Q wants the judge to step in and force him to pay up.
Barnett said that she and Q had been together off and on for years before their son – who BOSSIP isn’t naming – was born in 2005. Although the married Q denied paternity, two DNA tests court later determined that he was the boy’s father.
Barnett said she wants Q punished for withholding the child support, and she also wants a judge to force him to pay her more than $13,000 in lawyers fees.
Q hadn’t responded to Barnett’s claims in court.
