According to the Associated Press, Lashon Dixon has reportedly been receiving $2,000 a month for their two children, ages 7 and 8 . Rather than demanding a specified amount, the 29 year-old is requesting a court to order a stipend equal to Tip’s financial success. The two allegedly grew up together since they were teenagers and were romantically involved prior to his platinum-selling status in today’s hip-hop climate. In addition to Dixon’s two sons, Tip also has two boys with fiancée and R&B singer Tameka “Tiny” Cottle.
The Atlanta-bred rapper is currently fulfilling his 1,000 hours of community service for his gun possession charges last year. T.I.’s rep was unavailable for comment at press time.
