Another year, another celebrity accused of not paying up. R&B singer/songwriter Mario Winans is being accused by his ex-girlfriend for not paying his required monthly child support.
Janel Bennett says the singer, who wrote Diddy-Dirty Money’s recent hit song âLoving You No Moreâ with rapper Drake, stopped handing over cash for their son Jordan. Bennett claims she’s due to receive $4,500 a month and that Winans is four months behind on payment.
“He pays $10,000 a month for a house in New Jersey and says he’s broke,â Bennett tells the New York Post’s gossip column PageSix. âI was homeless. I had to stay with friends in Chicago. He’s not broke; he just had a hit song with Drake.”
In contrary to Bennettâs claims, Winans insist he’s always ensured his kids are “taken care of.â
Winans, who says he wired $14,000 to Bennett over the weekend, states, “I take pride in my children – it is what it is – I always make sure they are taken care of.”
Winans has three other children with his wife Joy.
