HAMMOND -- The 48-year-old son of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan claims he has never paid income tax, provides no support to the four mothers of his nine children, and lives off $350 he picks up each week from a secretary at his father's home on the South Side of Chicago. Attorneys for a Gary couple who were injured in a 2003 crash in which Nasir Farrakhan twice rammed their compact car while driving his father's Hummer on the Indiana Toll Road would like some of that income to go toward the $350,000 in damages they were awarded in a civil lawsuit.
"Basically, (Nasir Farrakhan) is a man whom you can tell from today has never honored any of his obligations," said David Jensen, attorney for Charles and Gladys Peterson.
Farrakhan said he had not worked since he lost his post as head of his father's security detail after the crash.
Since that time, he has lived with a string of girlfriends and in a seedy Lakeview hotel, where Nation of Islam members sent by his father dropped off envelopes with cash.
The Petersons were paid a $465,000 settlement by Farrakhan's insurance company, but he has not made good on an order to pay off more than $50,000 for the Petersons' medical bills that was part of his guilty plea to reckless driving in state court.

Which story is the truth? Seems that daddy fartupon doesn't like his offspring much.
Russell Simmons won’t pony up and bail out this bum?
Move to Florida like O.J. did.
Maybe he could get a job...naaaah.
Sue the parents for a poor upbringing.

His family must be very proud.
He and Kojo Annan should start a club.
Hmmmm.... let's take a closer look at THAT little tidbit...
Islam reverance for women with the burka....wow, this guy is no different than the bro’s in the hood!
Yup, because he has not made good on an order to pay off more than $50,000 for the Petersons' medical bills that was part of his guilty plea to reckless driving in state court.
The Petersons' have already collected $465,000 from poppa's (I presume) insurance &, w/o knowing the details of the 'damages' they're claiming, I don't have a lot of sympathy for them concerning the civil suit.
They are, because he runs a number of the Nation Of Islam's sketchier businesses, and the four women are the four wives he is allowed under the Nation's religious teaching.
His wives and his children are well taken care of - it's just all off the books.
He lives in hotels, runs a number of businesses that transact solely in cash and operates through a number of Nation intermediaries.
Jail? Are you serious? The race pimps would be there in a heartbeat and George W. Bush would be to blame. This is a lazy bum that is slicking the system. I bet he votes Democrat in every election.
Why is that? They were hurt seriously when this idiot rammed them off the road on purpose with his daddy's Hummer.
Personally I think going after the guy directly who did it is more than fair, since he basically hasn't had to pay anything for his crime except losing his job.
He’s just another example for the black youth of today to emulate.
“provides no support to the four mothers of his nine children”
Only 9 kids across 4 mothers? He’s a little behind if he wants to be a true babiez daddy.

I already told ya AND included a disclaimer.
They were hurt seriously...
So then you have details of their injuries. Please share.
50K in medical bills seems like it was more than a scratch...
“So then you have details of their injuries. Please share.”
The $50K was part of their award. The judge ordered it paid. They are entitled to it. No other details are relevant or needed.
Uh huh thats a fascinating tidbit.
See Post #12. He has not paid the $50K so I think he should go to jail because he’s violating the terms of his plea deal.
The civil suit is another issue.
Sheriff Joe’s jail would be perfect.
So, taxpayers are expected by he and his ilk to fund everything from abortion and healthcare to aiding the homeless but HE won’t even give his son more than $350.00 per week? Oy.
Sounds like Al Sharpton. Lives high on the hog, but when it comes time for them to dig into their own pockets they claim poverty.
