Yesterday HipHopDX reported that an arrest warrant had been issued for Joe Budden stemming from unpaid child support. The veteran New Jersey emcee owes nearly $13,000 in overdue payments. This isn’t new to Budden, he was arrested last year for failure to pay child support as well.

Last night Joell Ortiz posted a comment on Twitter that seems to be directed towards his Slaughterhouse bandmate. Neither artist has said anything on the issue so it is not clear if this was indeed directed at Budden, but it certainly does apply to his situation.

I don’t have a 6-pack or wild muscles but i’m still a model……. A ROLE model. Stop forcing women to be dads. Take care of your kids. Wordless than a minute ago via web

HipHopDX will keep you updated.

UPDATE: Many believed Joell Ortiz  was sending shots at Joe Budden with his Twitter post regarding fathers. The message came soon after it was revealed that a warrant had been issued for Budden due to child support issues. However, a few hours later, aware that his message was taken as a shot to his Slaughterhouse group member, Ortiz set the record straight.
