Roddy Ricch Ordered To Pay $24K In Child Support Amid Drug Abuse Claims

Recently, some damning reports came out claiming that Roddy Ricch engaged in substance abuse that led to concerns from his baby mama. Moreover, Alexandra Kiser filed for custody of their three-year-old son Kadence and claimed he's addicted to lean and gang-affiliated. In addition, she sought to make the rapper pay child support and accused him of being an absentee father. Now, court documents obtained by Radar Online indicate that the court ordered Roddy pay her a lump sum payment of $24,000 in child support as a temporary settlement to their legal battle.

"Rodrick Moore is gang-affiliated,” Kiser filed in court, referring to Roddy Ricch by his government name. “He has been arrested on a gun charge, domestic violence and regularly indulges in promethazine use. All of which are concerns for myself and our son. (He) is a very successful and highly paid entertainer who goes by the name of Roddy Ricch. He has a net worth of approximately $25,000,000 [and] commands fees of $500,000 for appearances. Since his birth, I alone, spend 98% of the time with him while Rodrick lives his life without any regard to his parental obligation or responsibility to spend time with Kadence. Recently, he moved into the gated compound where he has leased the house where our son and I currently live and has only spent three full days with Kadence thus far and that has been since January/early February.

“He now asks if I could move out by this May or if he’ll give me a six-month extension to move after I expressed to him that I felt uncomfortable about the way he moved into our gated community, just mere houses from us, and then tried to keep it a secret," she continued. Furthermore, she continued to blast Roddy Ricch on social media. "Imma clear this up real quick cause some of these facts ain’t right,” she posted on Instagram. “I don’t live in this man house. 2, y’all try taking care of an autistic child yourself and lmk how much therapy & everything costs. Meanwhile your bd doing everything else & don’t even know what kind of therapist his son even sees. He spends $20k in the club on a light night. Please."

If the "Twin" MC reaches an agreement with Kiser before their court date of mid-August, the court may cancel it altogether. Not only that, but the $24K could also count as credit towards potentially owed previous child support payments. Also, that money covers the $8K a month child support payments in April, May, and June of 2023. The former couple agreed to attend a "voluntary settlement conference" with their attorney to forego court and put a compromise in writing.
