bossip reports: Offset got a small victory in his ongoing paternity and child support case.
A judge has OK’d the Migos member’s request to shield all of his financial information from the public in his legal battle with his alleged baby mama, Justine Watson.
Last summer, Watson sued Offset, whose real name is Kiari Cephus – to establish paternity and support for her seven-year-old son, Jordan. Cephus said in court papers that he is Jordan’s dad – even though he hasn’t taken a DNA test – and has supported him since he was born.
Offset argued that making his info public as part of the case’s evidence would cause irreparable harm to him, his family and his reputation. A judge agreed and approved a “protective and confidentiality order” that keeps info like Offset’s net worth, email and personal address, business associations, deals, debts and assets out of the public sphere.
If Watson or Offset violate the terms of the order, they could face heavy fines or “other appropriate remedies.”
“It is specifically understood that the Confidential Information is of critical importance to the parties and the harm resulting from any breach may be difficult to determine and may be wholly or partially irreparable,” Offset’s Dec. 28 court order, which was obtained by BOSSIP, states. “The parties may seek to enforce the other’s obligations hereunder by injunctive relief and other appropriate remedies.”
This isn’t the only alleged baby mama to seemingly come out of the woodwork. Last month, Instagram model Celina Powell said Offset was the father of her unborn child, but the “T-Shirt” rapper has vehemently denied her claims. And last year, Georgia’s child support services sued Offset on behalf of a woman named Kalea Marie Algarin, but the case was later dismissed.
