Court Orders Young Jeezy To Turn Over Bank Statements

October 26th, 2005 | By Administrator

Jay “Young Jeezy” Jenkins was ordered to turn over financial records of his earnings during a child support hearing on Tuesday (Oct. 25).

The Boyz N Da Hood former front man and Def Jam artist is having his earning scrutinized, as the mother of his 9 year-old son, Nicole Dykes, is stating that the rapper’s income has changed drastically since a 2001 child support ruling.

The original motion, which established the paternity of the child, set the child support for Jenkins to pay at $178.

Since that motion, the record label Jenkins? allegedly owns, Corporate Thugz Entertainment, has enjoyed success.

Jenkins was a member of BNDH when they released their self-titled debut on Bad Boy Entertainment, which landed near the top of the charts when it was released in June of 2005.

In July of 2005, Jenkins’ certified platinum debut, Let?s Get It: Thug Motivation 101 hit stores through a deal with the Island Def Jam Music Group, a unit of Universal Music Group.

In court depositions, Jenkins denied owing a mansion or a house, a car or jewelry, but Dykes? lawyers singled out his diamond incrusted “snowman” pendant, as well as the platinum success of his debut album and the success of BNDH?s self-titled debut album, which spawned the radio hit “Dem Boyz.”

Nicole Dykes is asking for more than $20,000 in expenses for clothing, transportation and housing to care for the child.

“The ultimate question is what is he making?” Superior Court Judge George Nunn asked on Tuesday (Oct. 25), during the proceedings.

The court concluded with the judge stating that if Jenkins can prove that he’s only living on a minimal income and driving an economy rental car, rulings would bear in his favor.

On the other hand, if he fails to disclose a full picture of his income, the judge warned that he will assess child support based on the rapper’s “lifestyle of a wealthy rock star.”

The judge ordered the rapper?s attorney to turn over his bank statements to Dykes? attorneys and told the lawyers to file subpoenas for other financial information from Corporate Thugs Entertainment by Friday (Oct. 28).

Diana Lynch, who is representing Jenkins in the case, is disputing the claim that he is the owner of Corporate Thugz Entertainment.

The follow up hearing to determine the amount of child support is scheduled for Nov. 29.
