Winans Accused Of Failing To Support Son

Hip-hop producer MARIO WINANS is reportedly refusing to support his three-year-old son, according to his ex-lover JANEL BENNETT. Bennett, who was in an eight-year relationship with Winans before she had her son Jordan, claims she was removed from her family home in Miami, Florida because Winans refused to pay child support. The surprise eviction has apparently left the cocktail waitress "homeless and living with friends on the south side of Chicago". Two years ago (05) the single mother was caught up in a legal battle with the rap producer to prove he was the father of her son. DNA reports came back positive, and Winans was made to pay Bennett $4,500 (GBP2,250) per month in child support. Bennett tells the New York Post's PageSix, "He hasn't paid me. I just wanted support, and I was on disability and Medicaid and welfare just to have the baby. "He stopped paying last year... by the end of August 2007, I lost the house and moved to Chicago... I just want him to do right by Jordan... It would be so simple for him to call me so we could work something out." Bennett met the I Don't Wanna Know star in 1997 through their mutual friend Sean 'Diddy' Combs. Winans' representatives have made no comment on the allegations.
