Last week the mother of two of rapper T.I’s sons,Lashon Dixon, filed a lawsuit claiming that she could not raise her two boys on the $2,000 monthly stipend that she is currently receiving from the rapper. On Saturday,Rapper T.I.’s attorney responded to the claims:

“T.I is an exemplary parent who is seeking joint legal custody of his children. They spend approximately 40 percent of their time with him,” the rapper’s attorney, John Mayoue, said in a statement Saturday.

“He has been paying $2,000 per month in child support directly to their mother in addition to paying for their private school and medical expenses and thousands of dollars per month in clothing, gifts and extracurricular activities for them. Their mother has chosen not to be employed at this time.”

“The evidence in this case from both sides is that T.I. is a very loving, involved and generous father.”
Lashon Dixon is the mother of Domani and Messiah.

  2. A REAL DAD…doesnt buy silencers A REAL DAD doesnt buy automatic guns A REAL DAD doesnt add to his rap sheet when he already had over 32 arrest A REAL DAD wouldnt even think of buying guns and silencers ..a real dad doesnt break the law a real dad doeant leave his kids for a year over his stupit moves a real dad is there for his kids (in person not in cash)…a real dad would have thought of his children first before he thought of buying silencers and automatic guns thats what a real dad would do ..now ask yourself are ya being a real dad ??????????……ps if ya have to even think about it your not ..get it together dad ….before its to late and ya blow the whole gig ….what a shame ………and the judge want you to talk to young peaple ….i wouldnt want you to give advice to a cardboard cut out……i call the way i see it …work on it

  3. dat is a shame that she cant get up and get her a job dat is not ti problem that she choose to sit on her butt all day every day while he out doing his job and trying to take care of his kids well all i got to say for ti is keep doing yo thang dont let nobody stop you and you still look good boo dont worry bout nothing!!!!!!!!

  4. T.i. you are one of the best fathers that your kids can ask for.It don’t matter what anyone thinks about you going away for a year.Throughout your years you did the best and helped kids at your show T.i road to redemption.Tiny shes a good mother she should stay by your side and help you while your going to away and be your backbone.

  5. T.I. you are one of the best father that your kids can ask for so what anyone think about you going to jail for a year you been the best thorw out these year and that all your kids can ask for tiny should be by your side throw out those year and she a good mohter to her kids ti you reach so many kids even me thank for that and you thought me not to go down that rode. thank you and love you.

  6. love the show. hope it’s not just a front for tv. you come across very sincere and the stories have been remarkable especially the one last week. you should be thankful everyday that you got it like that and should want your children to enjoy the same benefits that they have when they are with you. everybody saying get a job but right now jobs are really scarce in all career fields. well TI i did the math $2000 divided by 30 equals $66.66 per day for her to provide for two growing boys. come on you are better than that and can and should want to do better. what price do or should we put on the head of our children. you know it is really an honor to be a parent and the mother of your children should always be looked at in a positive way. after all she was good enough to make beautiful kids with. if we want to do something she should be encouraged to be the best stay at home mom she can be. if you pay her $10.00 per hour x 24 hours in a day because you don’t stop parenting just because it’s time to go to bed that equals $240.00 per day for $7200.00. Mr. TI i am old enough to be your mother the price of a good parent is priceless. if she is a good mother do the right thing and if not do the next best thing get custody. eventually because of your status and success your sons will want to live with you on a full time basis then where does that leave her? those who only has spoken of greed probably speak of her as it relates to how they see themselves. GOD bless you and I hope the show continues after this is all over for you.

  7. Tisk man, going to jail doesnt mean u dnt love your kids MISTAKES HAPPEN.. Da meer fact dat dat woman dont wana work just clearly puts a picture in my head dat shes nothing but a lazy platinum diggin @#$@$# maybe if she decided 2 get a job she wouldnt need 2 get all dat cash from Clifford shed hav her own.. bigup 2 all them sisters doing it for themslves

  8. I don’t understand why this scenario exists. this brother lives a good life, and his girl and kids could be doing a whole lot better, if they would try to think out of that lame gangster box.start to understand the way things work and build without that silly attitude. my mother raised five kids on nothing, and I didn’t decide to be a gangster, or carry a gun. wake up man!!! you really do have achoice.

  9. Nadya Suleman is a person that was searching for an answer. She had six children and living with her parents. She needed to come up with a way to make it financially, and she needed to find a way to stop her sad life. She loved children, so she made her decision. I’ll have more children, I will find a financial foothold to raise my children–I may get a reality show. My children and I will be well off. After all if Billions and Billions are given to rich banks and car corporations, then who would mind 14 little kids, arriving on the planet. After all they will be raised lovingly and receive donations or payments from T.V. shows. This can be a way out of my poverty and a way to bring 14 little beautiful lives a happy beginning. After all, are children so out of style that I could be called names and ridiculed? Surely babies are more popular than dogs. If I had fourteen dogs–would people out there want to help me feed my dogs? Surely, children are more important! Surely babies are more than Wall Street Crooks that get millions and billions of dollars. Surely children cost so little comparatively speaking. I going to take a leap of faith and believe that the world will welcome me and my children and help with their care through donations.

  10. Ladies!! Ladies!!Ladies!! I’m speaking to the women who are like Lashon Dixon and those that want to be like her. Get up and handle your own business. Why should she get more money when he’s paying for all their vital expenses and also giving an extra 2,000 on top of that as well? I’m a woman that is so sick of women crying about this crap when they actually have good fathers for their children. Come on, he also has 40 percent custody despite his career. If she needs more to live on,she needs to do her part for her children and get a job. That’s part of motherhood,being a role model for your children!

  11. T.I is the best person who I know..he is perfect rapper..and great father ..and he spend all his time with his son´s and give them everything what he can….he is superstar…I love him so much

  12. I think that T.I should do whatever ha can to support his kids.
    An if u are one of the people that think he shouldn’t than u your self are wrong!(you need help)
    So quit sayin that u need stop and make her get a job and support her own kids.
    It takes two people to lay down a have sex an to make a baby.
    So both should take of there kids just like my an my husband does.

    Thank you,
    T.I
    I love You!
    You are doing the right thing!

  13. I think the man is doing a very good job. Because some men wouldn’t. I think she’s trying to get over on you, you just keep up the good work. and I’ll just pray for her.

  14. First of all, she should get a JOB! Extra money?? I’m pretty sure her kids don’t want for anything. He is a father to those kids. He actually wants to have joint custody of them. He has stepped up to the plate doing exactly what he is supposed to do. Besides the $2000, he takes care of their school, medical, & clothing expenses. What is her financial contribution? She should be ashamed of herself. She sees T.I. as her meal ticket. I hate when women do that. She needs to pay her half.Yes she gets them ready for school & makes breakfast. That’s what parents do. It comes with the territory. I’m sure when he has the kids he takes them to school too. It takes money to raise kids so if she thinks that she needs more money then she should get a JOB!

  15. The cost of living go up every year! TI makes alot of money. She’s only asking for 10,000 when she could get more. Just because he feel like he made it doesnt mean he should put his kids mother down. I hate dumb stupid ass black people that is’nt use to nothing. Remember what goes up must come down. He still not better than the next person. Tell that ni@$% to stop buying pounds and pounds of powered. Dope head! Pay the 10,000 and keep it moving and stop broadcasting your business! Who cares! Welcome to the real world. And for those on this lame side, go snap back into reality!

  16. I think it is a disgrace that a mother should even have to take a father to court period. This isn’t just about money if you look at the whole picture. T.I. should man up and do for his flesh and blood children just like he is providing for Tiny’s little girl who is not his biological child. Whats fair is fair. Tiny should not stoop so low and say anything about her step sons mom. That is really low class for her to make a comment if she said anything about the young lady. You don’t see Diddy’s camp feuding over child support payments. He has more than one baby momma (HELLO) Think about it. He is paying Kim Porter at least $10,000.00 or more since he has 3 children with her now, and plus he provides for her son whose father is “Al B Sure”. So T. I. humbly yourself and do a decent thing. We have bought enough of your music and movies where you can afford that little bit of money.

  17. I know he a good daddy to his kidz. But at the same time you gotta look at them baby mommas. Just cuz he was blessed with his ability to flow what makes it all his responsability to be the only provider for the children?? Last time I heard it aint just 1 person makin a baby! The way I see it he should only have to pay 50% and she pay 50%. I mean I understand if he wasnt there and he never sees them but I’m sure that aint the case… He should make it so she has to get a job no reason he should support her his name aint on her birth certificate just his kids.

  18. ~I believe t.i iz a good father come on now, he rich if he was a normal father he really wont beable 2 give dem kids 2 much of wat dey want. but he got money! normal daddies got lots of bills but tip can pay his off the time itz needed. i dont blame her 4 wanting more she a mama, he left her 4 tiny! she aint all dat cute or dixon left him. she a single mama, 24/7 dey need her. n kids b wantin a lot of stuff so she need lot of money!~

  19. CORRECTION: “It’s his JOB to provide for those children. NOT HER!!”

    THAT SHOULD READ. It’s not ONLY his JOB to provide for those children, but it’s hers too!!

  20. I don’t care HOW much money T.I. has. That doesn’t mean that his Baby Mama can just freeload off of him because THEY both didn’t choose to use protection. He is providing for his children, why isn’t she?? Last time I checked it was supposed to be 50/50 she shouldn’t have the privilege of sitting on her ASS all day because he has money. It’s his JOB to provide for those children. NOT HER!!

  21. WTF!!! You people must have no idea what it is like to raise a child as a single parent. $2000 a month covers BASIC needs. How the hell is she going to get a job, if she’s a 24/7 mom?!??! You think it’s easy working and taking of the kids alone? T.I just sends her the money, but he doesn’t cook dinner for them, he doesn’t pick htem up at school, he doesn’t make them breakfast, clean their rooms, etc etc. WTF. That guy needs to realise how hard parenting is. If th ewoman is looking after his children 24/7 give her more money. And don’t be pathetic and tell her to get a job. She’s looking after his kids. That is her job. LOL.

  22. TI is doing a good job as a father and don’t have to do none extra. His kids is his main priority not lashon. As for Tiny thats his woman and she can have whatever she likes clearly.The rest of yall need to stop hating. If Lashon really needed more money she would go earn it.

  23. TI IS A GREAT MAN AND FATHER. THIS BABY MAMA NEEDS TO GET A JOB. WHATEVER HE DOES FOR TINY, THAT’S HIS BUSINESS THAT’S HIS CURRENT WOMAN AND THE MOTHER OF TWO MORE OF HIS CHILDREN, AND SHE IS PART OF HIS HOUSEHOLD. THAT’S WHAT THE MAN IS DOING TAKING CARE OF HIS HOUSEHOLD, THIS OTHER BABY MAMA NEEDS TO BE WORRIED ABOUT GETTING UP AND GETTING A JOB, HE TAKES WONDERFUL CARE HIS CHILDREN AND THAT’S A BLESSING FOR HER, SHE IS JUST BEING GREEDY. GREED IS A SIN, BABY MAMA. IF SHE WANT TO BE TAKEN OF BY TI SHE SHOULD HAVE STOOD HER GROUND AND NEVER ALLOWED ANYONE ELSE IN WHEN SHE WAS CURRENT, IT’S CALLED BEING A WOMAN WITH CLASS, LIKE TINY. TI WILL CONTINUE TO TAKE CARE OF HIS CHILDREN, HIS HOUSEHOLD (EVEN IN JAIL), TAKING CARE HIS WOMAN, AND SELF. GOD AND THE COURTS WILL SEE HIM THROUGH THIS. KEEP STANDING AS A MAN. MB

  24. The mother of rapper ti sons should get a job to help support the boys. ti should continue taking care of the kids. I hope things work out for the best. Tiny should also get a job.

  25. Hell she shouldn’t have to get a job…. He makes hell of money. If Puffy, M.J. and others pay thousands of dollars for child support, why can’t he pay an extra 2,000 or so for another child. He’s the one who said, “It ain’t tricking if you got it.”

    PS this my husband. lol. He give me what ever I like. lol.

  26. Smh…And that woman thinks she has the right to talk and right now she is “choosing” to not have a job. I wonder why…Smh.

  27. For Red:
    A good father starts with being there physically and providing for your kids, which is impossible to do when you’re behind bars. Doesn’t mean he loves his kids any less. But it does point out how parents should think before making risky decisions that could negatively impact their children.
    I suspect TI knows this already. The days he spent in jail (again)before bail was granted should have been a harsh reminder. I hope he has/will change for the better.

  28. A great father would not be on the way to jail. I believe 100% that TI loves his kids and provides well for them. But all the material things in the world will not console them when he’s MIA for 9 or 12 months and they start to miss him.

  29. THAT IS TERRIBLE HOW WE AS A PEOPLE ALWAYS THINK WE DESERVE SOMETHING. T.I. IS THE SUPERSTAR WITH THE MEGA BUCKS AND NOT HER. EVEN WITH GETTING 2000 AND HE TAKES CARE OF CLOTHING AND SCHOOLING, THAT IS 2000 FREE MONEY. JEALOUSY IS SUCH A TERRIBLE THING AND INSTED OF PEOPLE TRYING TO MAKE IT OWN THEIR OWN THEY SPEND TOO MUCH TIME WORRYING ABT OTHER PEOPLES BUSINESS.HEY LADY WORRY ABT U AND THINGS WILL WORK OUT JUST FINE

  30. I knew there had to be a reason. She doesn’t want to work. That’s a BS excuse. I hope the court mandates that she get a job because that’s just foul. This is why it’s hard for women who really need the support to get it, because of women like T.I.’s baby mama.

  31. I believe T.I is a great father. He spends time with them and he gets them everything they need and want. That is what he is suppose to do not take care of her. He’s paying for everything so what’s the problem? I’m not one to judge but it seems to me she wants more money for herself. They are her children to she is a grown woman and she needs to get a job. If he wasn’t T.I she would have to work.
