T.I. to pay ex $3,000 per month in child support
T.I. has won a court case in which he is now required to increase child support by $1,000 as opposed to the $7,000 increase asked for by the mother of his children.

Lashon Dixon, the mother to the couple’s sons Domani and Messiah, was receiving $2,000 a month from T.I., and told the court she was unable to take care of them with that amount and asked for $10,000 a month.

The rapper says that Dixon has decided not get a job and instead live off the money he gives her.

“She has chosen not to work and to live 100 percent from her child support receipts,” he said, reports vibe.com. “This is the reason for her difficulties in making ends meet for herself… I should only be judged for my actions and not Lashon’s conscience decision not to work and not to contribute to the financial support of our boys.”

He then went on his website to state that he pays for his children’s living expenses.

“To clarify the recent reports, in addition to the $2000 per month I pay in cash to Lashon Dixon, the mother of my sons Domani and Messiah, I also pay for their private schooling, medical insurance, clothing, food, gifts, birthdays and extracurricular activities. Their extra-curricular activities have included football, basketball, baseball, acting lessons, summer camp, and any other activities that they express a desire to be involved in that will contribute to them leading balanced lives and developing into well rounded individuals.”

And he says he’s given Dixon much more than just the monthly support.

"I have also made an attempt to help Lashon with additional payments that have included a down payment to purchase her home, purchase of an automobile for her transportation and other financial obligations. These expenses are documented and are far in excess of the $2000 cash payment that is being paid direct to Lashon.”
