A court judge has ordered Akon to shell out 5,000 dollars a month in child support for his two kids.

The `Smack That` hit maker had filed a paternity case against Rozina Negusei in September 2012, as he wanted the court to establish custody, child support and legally recognize him as the father of their two sons, TMZ.com reported.


After the singing sensation listed his income as 40,708 dollars per month, the judge overseeing the case ordered him to pay 5,000 dollars to Negusei to help pay for their boys.

According to the files, the judge made the decision while keeping in mind that Akon already makes 6 other child support payments.

The artist’s former partner has got the sole physical custody of the children but the two will be sharing their legal custody.

He will also get a say in all major decisions and will cover health insurance for the two boys.
