Black Rob, the legendary rap star, passed away last week – and days before he died he was reportedly homeless. Fans of the New York rapper quickly blamed his former label boss Diddy for Black Rob’s money problems.

But now MTO News has learned that its manager has taken the floor – claiming it was his baby’s moms who took all his money – not Diddy. Black Rob had four children: Kayli, Rianna, Diamond, and Million. And alimony for his children – left him penniless.
Black Rob’s manager and friend Mark Curry spoke about it in a new interview. He said Black Rob received royalties from his record label – but child support cost it all. He explained:
[He was] a rich person and did woah, and then [he] I got child benefit that takes all the money away from him [he’s] to earn. You’re a famous guy but you don’t have the money to do it. . . . [He’s] I had no choice but to be what Rob was. . .
Choices we make in life sometimes come back – women we deal with, friends we deal with. Sometimes they come back to bite you in the ace *. But it’s part of life.

In October 2020, Black Rob spoke on Connecticut’s rap show Bars On I-95 about his financial troubles due to child support.
Rob said, “I’m still under pressure. It couldn’t seem like that [but] A **** is under pressure. I need help man. I get money, everyone knows that, but child support kills me. I can’t even live my life man! I’m supposed to be poppin ‘ “
