Rapper Chief Keef has been sued by a middle school-aged student for child support.
The girl claims that the 17-year-old rapper, real name Keith Cozart, fathered her child back in 2011 when he was just 15.
According to TMZ, her age is not specified in the lawsuit but she could have been in at least sixth grade at the time she conceived the baby. The only information that is known is she currently attends a Chicago middle school.
Illinois state law states it’s illegal for two people under the age of 17 to have sex, and it’s a misdemeanor with the older party committing "criminal sexual abuse." If prosecuted, Cozart could face a punishment of being required to register as a sex offender for ten years and one year in jail.
Hollywoodlife reports that the girl who filed the lawsuit is asking the rapper to pay her child support, health insurance as well as other medical expenses.
Cozart has worked with such artists as Kanye West, Rick Ross and Young Jeezy.
