A court has ordered rap mogul SEAN 'P DIDDY' COMBS to pay $21,000 (GBP11,052) a month in child support to his 11-year-old son with stylist MISA HYLTON-BRIM.

The BAD BOY ENTERTAINMENT boss had been reportedly paying about $5,000 (GBP2,631) a month in support, though he had been ordered to shell out $35,000 (GBP18,421).

The $21,000 figure represents a cut in the financial demand.

Hylton-Brim's lawyer says of the New York State Supreme Court Appellate Division decision, "It's a bit of a mixed bag."

Meanwhile, Combs's lawyer says his client hopes the "excessive" demand in the decision will be overturned.
