The “Born Free” crooner welcomed his son Bobby with ex-girlfriend Kelley South Russell in 1993, and in 2000 won a custody battle for the then-7-year-old, charging Russell $25 per week in child support. He went on to raise the child mostly on his own.
Kid Rock later married actress and model Pamela Anderson in 2006, but filed for divorce five months later after Anderson reportedly criticized his mother and sister in front of Bobby Ritchie Jr.
