Last year hip hop mogul Master P was ordered to pay his ex -wife Sonya Miller $10k a month in alimony and $16k a month in child support for their three minor children [click here if you missed that].
Ever since he's been fighting tooth and nail to get the support order lowered and now he's dragged their kids into the fight...
According to TMZ Hercy, Mercy, and Itali Miller all wrote letters to the judge in support of their father testifying they'd be better off living with their dad.
17-year-old daughter Itali made the most compelling case ... writing, "Although I love being with my mom I was unable to keep my grades up. Unfortunately, my mom was dealing with addiction issues that affected my older sister, who hasn't even had the opportunity to graduate high school" ... even though she's 19.Master P also claimed he only earns, $2,441 a month and that he only has $432 in the bank.
Fun Fact: Last year Sonya was awarded Master P's entire paycheck from the reality show Master P's Empire to cover $824k in back-child support [click here if you missed that].
The case is pending.
