Last month, the New York State Supreme Court's Appellate Division approved an increase from $5,000 to $21,782 per month to P. Diddy's ex-girlfriend, Misa Hylton-Brim. Representatives of both P. Diddy and Hylton-Brim say it's the highest child support payment in state history.
In an interview with The Associated Press Tuesday, the hip-hop mogul vowed to appeal, saying the case was an attack on his character.
"It's not about money. I don't care how much money I have," he said. "If you come at me and say I don't take care of my child, I'm going to take care of that to the end."
He vowed to take the case to the Court of Appeals, the state's highest court.
In addition to child support, P. Diddy said he also pays for his 11-year-old son Justin's health insurance, tuition, vacations, clothes and other items, for a total of about $120,000 per year.
Last year, Hylton-Brim sued P. Diddy seeking $35,000 a month in child support while she was divorcing the father of her other children. P. Diddy claimed she was seeking "adult support."
