Mos Def’s Tour Pay at Risk: Child Support May See It First

June 8, 2023 | By Kali Girl

Mos Def, now known as Yasiin Bey, may have to pay nearly $100,000 in earnings from an upcoming show to settle his baby mama’s attorney fees in their child-support dispute, reports the New York Post. With six kids from four different women, Bey is scheduled to open for Erykah Badu on her upcoming tour.

One of the mothers, Karima Sorel, based in Paris, is seeking the $88,602.63 she claims Bey owes her. Sorel plans to approach tour backers Live Nation, Ticketmaster, Outback Presents LLC, and BaduWorld Inc to collect the amount.

Sorel’s legal representation filed a motion in Manhattan court to enforce the judgment against Bey and compel the companies to redirect his earnings towards the debt.

“This matter arises out of protracted child support proceedings in Family Court between Karima Sorel…and the child’s father,” according to the Manhattan Supreme Court papers, which notes Bey’s current address is unknown to Sorel.
