Oh No! Rapper Juvenile Is Arrested For Owing Serious Cash…

Posted On : June 17, 2017

Our boy Juvenile has been arrested on today, for owing serious cash to his baby mama.

Juvenile, whose real name is Terius Gray, was arrested and booked into the New Orleans jail at roughly 2 a.m. Saturday (June 17), with failure to pay child support payments and contempt of court, according to court records.

So How Much Does He Owe?

According to NOLA, the judge in the case, Civil Court Judge Nakisha Ervin-Knott, has ordered that Gray, 42, must pay $154,000 to Dionne Williams for support of his son, or face 90 days in jail.

He is being held at the Orleans Justice Center jail on $150,000 bond.

According to court documents, Gray is accused of owing $155,000 since 2012. He is credited with paying $20,000 in 2017. Gray also was booked with contempt of court for failure to appear at a May 8 hearing, as well as lack of child support payment.

Williams accuses Gray in court records of failing to pay more than $71,000 in child support payments between 2013 and last month, but it does not appear Ervin-Knott has ruled on that argument.

Juvenile has a teenage son with Dionne Williams.

It’s Not His First Time In Jail

Gray helped launch the Cash Money Records label to national prominence with the multiplatinum album “400 Degreez” in 1998, which included the legendary New Orleans bounce anthem “Back That Azz Up.” Along with artists Lil Wayne, B.G. and Young Turk, he formed part of the famous rapper crew known as the Hot Boys.

 He also had a No. 1 single more recently with 2004’s “Slow Motion,” which featured the slain New Orleans rap star who performed under the name Soulja Slim. He was scheduled to perform at Southport Hall in Jefferson on Friday night.

Gray’s personal life has not been spared legal troubles and tragedy.

Among other things, he pleaded guilty in 2003 to a charge of theft in New Orleans and was told to pay a fine as well as restitution to the victim in the case. In 2008, a daughter of Gray was killed in Georgia along with other family members by her half-brother.
