No point in being charitable if you don't even support your own family!

London Celebrity Chef Bjorn van der Horst was arrested Wednesday night for owing up to $93,000 in backed child support to his son with ex-wife Yael Bizouati!

During a hearing in Brooklyn Family Court, he was ordered to pay $57,000 and surrender his passport, before being put behind bars until his hearing, next Wednesday.

Bizouati's lawyer, Bruce Young, explains:

"This is somebody at the higher end [who] lives the good life. I'm sure he was expecting to take a cross-Atlantic flight, not sit incarcerated. He just never paid anything that he was supposed to pay. He was bringing free soccer balls to Africa, which is a very noble thing. But when you're not paying your son's own child support, it seemed [to be] disregarding the immediacy of one's own family and the responsibilities that we all have."

Young is referring to a charity that van der Horst works for called The Great Football Giveaway, which provides soccer balls for children in need.

He's been expected to pay $2,950 a month, but according to court records, he's provided less than $800 in three payments over the last year, and around $1,500 in two others.

When his ex-wife found out he would be stateside - he resides in London - the judge immediately issued a warrant for his arrest, and cops handcuffed him immediately after exiting the plane at Kennedy airport!

Not good, bb!

Time to cough up those dolla dolla bills!
