90 Day Fiance‘s Rebecca Parrott faced an arrest warrant and jail over a back child support case. Her first sizable payment was due on December 15 with several more installments owing. Here’s the latest on this legal issue that could still send Rebecca to jail if she doesn’t stick to the schedule.
90 Day Fiance: Fans Criticize Rebecca Parrott for Expensive Trip When She Owes Her Ex
When news broke that Rebecca Parrott owed lingering unpaid child support to the father of her three grown children, 90 Day Fiance fans shared their disappointment. They wondered why she was spending money on costly flights to Tunisia when she owed money for her children.
Airfare to Tunisia from Atlanta runs $2,000-$6,000. Plus she paid for the car rental and was seen giving Zied Hakimi money on 90 Day Fiance episodes. In fact, it was the same day that Rebecca Parrott announced she was on the cast of the new season, on June 24, that her ex filed suit.
So, did finding out his ex-wife was getting on 90 Day Fiance TV trigger her ex-husband to resume the battle? Because, the child support issue was lingering for years prior. Rebecca Parrott has three children with her ex and the back support’s reportedly owed on her youngest daughter Tiffany, now 21.
Details on Rebecca’s Back Child Support Case
Court documents confirm that 90 Day Fiance love hopeful Rebecca Parrott didn’t pay a court-ordered child support obligation. So, her husband took her to court in 2014 over $5,200 in arrears. In that case, the judge agreed to $325 monthly payments. But, later court info says she didn’t pay.
The suit alleges after four years, Rebecca paid just $1,200 on her $5.2k debt to her ex and nothing more as of July of 2018. Once again, though, documents show 90 Day Fiance alum Rebecca Parrott didn’t comply with court orders. The new contempt case for non-payment filed July 2019 and she was ordered to respond by August.
The court told her to turn over info on her income, assets, living arrangements and other financial matters, but Rebecca ignored the request. Then her ex’s attorney gave her 10 more days to respond and she didn’t. 90 Day Fiance cast member Rebecca Parrott also skipped the court hearing on November 22.
90 Day Fiance Update: Rebecca Admits She’s at Fault – Pays Up
Because Rebecca Parrott didn’t file a response or come to court, her ex was awarded a summary judgment. And that day, a four-installment payment plan was set-up. Three payments of $2k and one for $500. The first was due by end of day December 15. Soap Dirt exclusively confirmed the 90 Day Fiance star paid up.
Since Rebecca paid part of her back child support, the local Sheriff’s department did not have to issue a “Floyd Order”. A Floyd Order is an arrest warrant that allows the defendant to self-surrender rather than being hunted down and arrested. A few days before her first installment was due, Rebecca Parrott shared some insights into her case.
