Celebrity Suits For Child Support – Starsky & Dupri

One of the stars of ‘Starsky and Hutch’, Paul Michael Glaser is facing legal action from his ex-wife after allegedly failing to make child support payments.

The now 69-year-old actor, who played Detective David Starsky in the classic 1970s cop series, is being sued by his former wife Tracy Barone, who has accused him of owing $3,224 in child support payments and $13,000 in spousal support, according to legal documents filed in L.A. County Superior Court.

Glaser and Barone, divorced in 2007 citing “irreconcilable differences”, are parents to a 13-year-old daughter named Zoe.

Also in the news this week is Grammy award winning producer, Jermaine Dupri is being sued by Sarai Jones, over missed child-support payments that a judge recently ordered him to pay her. After a paternity test in March, a Fulton County Superior Court Judge ordered Dupri to pay $2,500 a month and an additional $7,500 to Jones after the test proved that he was the father to Jones’ seven-month-old daughter.

The lawsuit comes at a time when Dupri, who has produced hits for artists including Usher and Mariah Carey and was one of hip-hop’s top earners in 2006, is facing financial troubles. His mansion was up for foreclosure and set to be auctioned last week, but the sale was canceled at the last minute. Plus Dupri apparently owes more than $493,000 in back taxes.
