Ying Yang Twins rapper D-Roc has successfully petitioned a judge to lower his child support payments, because he can longer afford to pay them.

D-Roc, real name De'Angelo Holmes, was ordered to pay $2,500 (Gbp1,667) a month to his ex-wife - an amount which was arranged when he was making $19,000 (Gbp12,667) a month. But now he claims his monthly income has shrunk to $2,860 (Gbp1,906) and he can longer pay up.

The Wait (The Whisper Song) hitmaker now has to pay $550 (Gbp367) a month and has worked out a deal to pay the $45,000 (Gbp30,000) he owes in back child support, according to Tmz.com.
