The Chicago native appeared in Cook County court Thursday morning for allegedly not paying his youngest daughter's child support and tuition, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Walker filed for bankruptcy in May 2010, and because of that, a Circuit Court judge said no actions could be taken at the moment.

Harris and Gladness said they were not sure of their fates until arriving for practice Saturday morning. Harris shot 50 percent in Miami's two preseason games, including a team-best four 3-pointers.
Think back to the Finals failures that stand out most.
In a surprising move, the Miami Heat kept two free-agent rookies on their final, 15-player roster, instead opting to waive veteran guard Eddie House.
Eddy Curry has been sidelined with a hip flexor.
Hold up together during the lockout, Heat president Pat Riley, CEO Nick Arison and coach Erik Spoelstra had plenty of time to tinker.
It's a preseason game, signifying absolutely nothing, and LeBron James is unquestionably the best basketball player in the world.
Still, on Wednesday night, he shot a wide open 15-foot set shot about 14 feet.
(Also, Michael did this once.)
Christmas was made a little brighter for more than 100 neglected and abused local youths, thanks to Chris Bosh.
Well, it wasn't exactly divine. Twenty-nine NBA teams were supposed to bow at the feet of Miami's LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.
The video is pretty much exactly what it says it is. LeBron James shoots an airball in the Heat’s preseason game Wednesday. Enjoy the schadenfreude. It does not mean anything. LeBron remains the best player walking the planet.
