Asafa Powell, legendary Jamaican sprinter, was taken to court to increase his monthly child support payments, as reported last year. The report released in mid 2020 had stated that Asafa who was paying $25,000 monthly was requested to pay $40,000 per month, an additional $15,000.
At that time, Asafa revealed that he wanted a paternity test for the child he shares with his former girlfriend Amita Persaud-Webb. Amita likened the problem she was having with Asafa to the Corona Virus.
