|Funkmaster Flex GOES IN On His Baby Mama Haydee Diaz Over Child Support On Hot 97 - YouTube|
His name is Flex, but hes not bending on child support to his son with a past girlfriend.
Legendary hip-hop DJ Funkmaster Flex says in Westchester court papers that he shouldnt have to increase payments from $4,000 a month to $5,000 to cover his 12-year-olds private-school tuition and summer-camp fees.
Flex, whose real name is Aston Taylor Jr., makes $373,000 a year as a DJ on hip-hop radio station Hot 97 and as host of MTVs Funk Flex Full Throttle, according to the documents filed on Jan. 16.
Bronx-born Flex was ordered to pay child support to ex-girlfriend Haydee Diaz for their son, Dante, in 2003, based on a salary of $245,000.
Diaz, 43, of Plainfield, NJ, filed for the increase to fund Dantes math and language tutoring, swim team, camp and private school.
Flex, 46, complained in a written response that expenses such as swimming is not a need and there is no entitlement to provide summer camp at a cost of $8,000.
Diazs attorney, Suzanne Bracker, countered, Every child deserves to be supported in the same lifestyle as his father.
Flex and his lawyer did not return calls for comment.
