UpDate: Damn Juvenile: Juvenile Arrest Warrant Issued in Deadbeat Dad Case

Juvenile Rapper Juvenile attends 2010 VH1 Hip Hop Honors at Hammerstein Ballroom on June 3, 2010 in New York, New York.


Rapper Juvenile is a wanted man in Louisiana ... facing 90 days in prison for screwing over his baby mama in a BAD way ... and a judge has now ordered that he be arrested on sight.

According to court papers obtained by TMZ ... the former Cash Money Records rapper -- real name Terius Gray -- owes more than $160,000 in unpaid child support to Dionne Williams, the mother of his 13-year-old son.

In Louisiana, deadbeat dads can be locked up for shirking their child support obligations ... and a judge ruled that Juvenile is no exception ... since he hasn't forked over a dime since December 2006.

There is ONE way for Juv to avoid backin' that ass up into the pokey -- the judge ruled if he comes up with $50k immediately, he can buy himself more time to get caught up with the remaining balance.

Calls to Juv's rep have not been returned

Rapper Juvenile is adamant ... he's a DAMN GOOD father who takes care of his children ... and that's why he was shocked to find out a warrant had been issued for his arrest over unpaid child support.

TMZ just spoke with the "Back That Azz Up" rapper ... who put it bluntly, "This is a bunch of bullsh*t."

As we previously reported, Juvenile is a wanted man in Louisiana for allegedly stiffing his baby mama out of more than $160k in child support for their 13-year-old son.

But the rapper tells us, "I was never informed that there was a warrant out for my arrest."

He explains, "My son stays with me most of the time ... I take care of my son ... I love my son."

We asked how Juv plans to proceed now that he's aware of the legal situation ... to which he replied, "Now that I know, my lawyer is on it ... I'm going to handle it."
