Chief Keef pleads guilty to speeding, faces 2nd paternity suit

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Chicago rapper Chief Keef was served Monday in a second paternity lawsuit as he appeared in a Cook County courtroom to plead guilty to a speeding violation.

The suit was filed a week ago in Cook County Circuit Court against the 17-year-old rapper, whose real name is Keith Cozart. No further information about the case was immediately available.

Another paternity case was filed against Keef on Dec. 11 in Cook County Circuit Court.

The troubled teenager — most recently in the news for a cameo on Kanye West's latest album "Yeezus" — pleaded guilty Monday to driving 110 mph on the Edens Expy. last month in his black 2011 BMW. He was charged with speeding 40 mph over the limit — a misdemeanor.

Keef, who was driving on a learner's permit when he was stopped in a 55 mph zone in Northfield on May 27, must pay a $531 fine, serve 18 months of probation, complete 60 hours of community service and undergo random drug tests.

Keef has served time in juvenile detention for pointing a gun at Chicago Police officers. He was sent back to juvenile detention earlier this year for a violation of his parole for handling a firearm in a promotional video.

Keef, who grew up in Englewood, currently lives in Northbrook. He gained notoriety last year for a gloating tweet sent from his account after the slaying of a rival rapper.

Keef faces a court hearing on Wednesday in the child-support case filed last year.

The plaintiff, 18-year-old Jasmine Woodford, has accused Keef of contempt for failing to pay the full amount of child support ordered in the case, said her attorney, George M. Sanders.

On April 17, a judge ordered the rapper to pay $2,600 a month in child support for their 1-1/2-year-old daughter, plus $500 a month for daycare, Sanders said. Keef owed $2,100 on May 17, but only paid $1,900 of that, he said.
