Chief Keef held in contempt in child support case

Keith Cozart, better known as rapper Chief Keef, has been found in contempt of court after failing to pay child support, according to authorities and court records.

Cozart, 18, was supposed to appear in court Sept. 5 before Cook County Domestic Court Judge Mary Trew in a 2012 child-support case, records show.

A warrant has not been issued for Cozart, Cook County sheriff’s spokeswoman Sophia Ansari said. Cozart’s next court date is Oct. 21. If he fails to appear in court, the judge could issue a warrant for his arrest, Ansari said.

A judge can find someone in contempt without ordering that person’s arrest, and Cozart was not arrested in this case, Ansari said.

The 2012 case is one of two separate child-support cases against Cozart, the second of which was filed this year.
