A judge has ordered R&B star Akon to hand over $5,000 (£3,200) in monthly child support payments for two of his kids.

The Smack That hitmaker filed documents last September (12) asking to be legally recognised as the father of two boys, born in 2009 and 2010 to his ex-partner Rozina Negusei.

The court has agreed the couple will share legal custody while Akon will cover health insurance and be consulted for all major decisions, reports Tmz.com.

After the star listed his income as $40,708 (£26,260) per month, the judge overseeing the case decided he must also pay $5,000 to Negusei to help pay for their boys.
