2014-11-07_16-53-36Arizona mom Shanesha Taylor has dominated the headlines as prosecutors work to bring her to justice for misusing monetary donations she received from public supporters. They claim the single mother of a 2-year-old and 6-year-old used the funds to help finance her baby daddy’s rap album.

Earlier this year, Taylor, 43, was charged with felony abuse after it was established that she left her kids in the car while attending a job interview. At the time of the incident, Taylor was homeless and asserted that she had no other alternative. Once her story went public, she was immediately inundated with donations from a crowdfunding campaign that was set up on her behalf – and about $114,700 was raised.

But she is now being challenged for not putting at least $40,000 of that money in a trust fund for her children. She was ordered to so in order to avoid jail time but there is no proof that she has complied. Prosecutors have accused her of using the most of the money on things that don’t meet the requirements of delegation.

Once it was revealed that she supposedly spent $6,000 at a music studio in Tempe, in an effort to help her baby daddy’s project, she became a marked target.

Taylor denies all the allegations and insists that the money she received has been used to cover outstanding bills, babysitting services, rent deposits, household items, and basic living expenses including utility bills. She also expressed in a statement that she was offered a few jobs but had to turn them down because they were not “viable options”. She also goes on to refute the claims that she gave the father of children money for his album. She describes their relationship as co-parents and how he is still seeking a job that pays him enough to be of assistance.

Taylor is expected to appear in court in December, but in the meantime she continues to struggle to find ways to support herself and her kids. She is in the process of trying to raise money again.

  • The prosecutor is simply lying because he wants the publicity. The person who made this claim of studio rental (her business, but she didn’t do it) is a two time felon for similar type of lying.

    shes trash. Anybody defending this is trash too. She got over 100k in donations, 40k was ALL she had to secure for her childs future (which she gives 0 damns about.) What if shenesha dies and since her baby daddy is not stabilized in the picture that child gets NO inheritance? She pays 10k for the scamming baby daddy’s “rap career”? It doesn’t take 10k to record a song. Then what about college and her daughter eventually having to go out in the future and start her life?? She has NO option to get some help from her mom? Her mom just denies her child these options for a little financial stability for her own selfishness?? TRASH.
