Embattled rapper Chief Keef has been accused of fathering a child.

An unnamed teenager has filed legal papers filed in Chicago, Illinois claiming the 17 year old, born Keith Cozart, is the father of her daughter.

She alleges the youngster was conceived in 2011 and is suing for child support payments, including health insurance and other medical expenses, according to Tmz.com.
