Rap artist Eric (Eazy-E) Wright has been ordered to pay about $ 58,000 a year in what a prosecutor said was the largest child-support order ever handled by the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office.
In a lengthy hearing, Judge Pro Tem F. Filmore Jaffe first declared that Wright, a rap artist who produced the soundtrack for the movie “Boyz N the Hood, ” is the father of a 2-year-old Nebraska girl.
Deputy District Attorney Ruth Roth said that the order handed down by the judge last week is believed to be the largest ever handled by the county prosecutor’s office of family support.
The judge then ordered Wright to pay $ 4,334 in monthly child support as well as $ 49,000 in back support, bringing his total annual payments to just over $ 58,000.
A call to Wright’s recording studio offices, Ruthless Records, went unanswered after business hours.
While most celebrity child-support cases are handled by private attorneys, the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office prosecuted the case against Wright because the child’s mother lives in Nebraska with the toddler.
