Young Jeezy Reaches Temporary Settlement With Ex

Young Jeezy and his

former girlfriend have reached a temporary agreement in an on going child support

case in Houston, Georgia.

On Monday (Nov. 28), Houston County Superior Court Judge George

Nunn ordered the rapper to pay $1,400 a month in child support to his 9-year

old son.

Jeezy, born Jay. W. Jenkins, came under scrutiny in Oct., when

his ex, Tynesha Dykes, took him to court, seeking an increase in child support.

The rapper released two hit albums in 2005, one as a member

of Boyz N Da Hood and another as a platinum-selling solo artist.

The two agreed to various temporary visiting terms and inheritance

agreements, but both parties disputed the amount of income Jeezy was earning.

The Macon Telegraph

stated that Judge Nunn labeled the case the “most frustrating child support

case he's ever heard,” as both parties remained locked in financial dispute.
