According to the New York Daily News, Pras was due in court for a mandatory child support hearing in June but skipped the date and went to Brazil for the World Cup. While dealing with his child support issues, the Grammy Award winner was also being vetted to speak at the U.N. General Assembly. Although the child support case will be resolved as early as next week, he was axed from the speaking engagement and he believes it has to do with the stigma of him being a deadbeat dad.
“They pulled him from the pool because they obviously can’t be associated with press like this,” a close friend told the publication.
Pras, real name Praskazrel Michel, began a fling with Angela Severiano on New Year’s Eve 2010. Michel pays Severiano $3,100 a month for his three-year-old son Landon, who was born in October of 2010. Severiano is asking the court to raise the monthly payment to $9,000 because she says it’s difficult to raise a child. Friends of Pras wonder why his child’s mother needs an increase in child support when she has a nice job where she earns $72,000 a year.
Angela Severiano’s attorney Kenneth Sternberg insists his client is only trying to get reach a fair settlement for everyone involved.
