First T.I.’s attorney and now rapper T.I. is responding to allegations that he doesn’t provide enough child support for his oldest sons Domani and Messiah:

VIA STREET CRED.COM
“A lot of deceiving information has been reported regarding my recent child support proceeding. It is unfortunate that the media has been used to manipulate the circumstances and distort the facts. Those that know me, all know that there is nothing more important to me than my children. I have always supported all of my children financially, emotionally, and spiritually. This has always been the case and I will continue to do so in the future as this is my responsibility as a parent.

To clarify the recent reports, in addition to the $2000 per month I pay in cash to Lashon Dixon, the mother of my sons Domani and Messiah, I also pay for their private schooling, medical insurance, clothing, food, gifts, birthdays and extracurricular activities. Their extra-curricular activities have included football, basketball, baseball, acting lessons, summer camp, and any other activities that they express a desire to be involved in that will contribute to them leading balanced lives and developing into well rounded individuals. I have also made an attempt to help Lashon with additional payments that have included a down payment to purchase her home, purchase of an automobile for her transportation and other financial obligations. These expenses are documented and are far in excess of the $2000 cash payment that is being paid direct to Lashon. She has chosen not to work and to live 100% from her child support receipts. This is the reason for her difficulties in making ends meet for herself.

Not only do I support my boys 100% financially, I am also committed to their emotional and spiritual growth. While I would enjoy the luxury of being present for all of my children’s activities, unfortunately the demands of my career and the need to secure my family’s financial security as well as insuring my kid’s personal growth dictates that I travel constantly and work tirelessly. Despite my hectic schedule, I make it a priority to be present for important occasions in their lives. This includes being home for their birthdays, school functions and being present at as many of their extra-curricular activities as I am able. I also am available to them at all times to provide guidance and support as a father regardless of my schedule or location. They are my first priority.

Again, there is nothing more important to me than my children. This is demonstrated by my effort to support them in every way that I can. Any reasonable person knowing the facts would conclude that all of my children’s needs are being far exceeded. My support of them in every way is documented and cannot be legitimately challenged.

I believe that it is every parent’s responsibility to provide unconditional love and support for their kids. I have made every attempt to do so for my boys. Again, I provide 100% of their financial support. I should only be judged for my actions and not Lashon’s conscience decision not to work and not to contribute to the financial support of our boys.”

  1. LOOK LIL GIRL(LASHON),
    IF U WANT BETTER FOR YOUR BOYS, THEN GET OUT AND DO YOUR PART..MY SON HAS GONE FAR BEYOND THE DUTY OF SUPPORTING HIS SONS. SO U NEED TO GET OFF YOUR A** AND GET A JOB. AND IF U DONT LIKE THESE COMMENTS U KNOW WHERE TO FIND ME!!!

  2. I reckon he is doin a great job considering he has a family of his own as well as his other biological kids that he loves and is also truly blessed to have. Good on ya T.I I’m a really big fan of your no matter what they say or report at least your kids know that your there for them and that you really care for them. GOOD LUCK AND MAY GOD BLESS YOU

  3. TI JUST KEEP BEING THE MAN GOD HAS BLESSED YOU TO BE. TAKE CARE OF YOUR FAMILY ALWAYS, KEEP GOD FIRST IN YOUR LIFE, AND GOD WILL GET YOUR BABY MAMA’S LIFE TOGETHER. SHE IS JUST HUNGRY FOR THE WRONG MEAL AND NOT ACCEPTING HER BLESSING FOR THE MEAL THAT HAS BEEN PLACED BEFORE HER.

  4. Lil Mama i dont agree Tiny is his lady so it is his duty to support her financially with what ever the amount may be. it is not his duty to support his baby mama only his kids. He is proving by giving money and there school is taken care of and he spends as much time with them as he can. Why is his baby mama not working. thats jus plain lazy. She is no longer his obligation those boys are only. he is basically paying her $2,000 per month just for being his kids mother. HOw much of that $2,000 do you think she has to actually spend on them. Shes trying to live the life styt that he and Tiny has but they both worked for it and they are now a union.

  5. i agree with with some of the comments that was posted however i think ti should be more supportive of the situation at hand. you have one baby mother ( tiny) who has everything and she is his baby mother as well. what make it right for one and not all. just because tiny and ti have a current relationship should not exclude her from working either. they still have children together to. yes ti is providing the bulk of his financial obligation and i prays him for that because he is doing what a father should do for all his children. i think that they all should work to help out with the children. i remember reading an article when ti stated when asked when tiny would do another album and he said if the record company can’t pay her what he is paying her then she will never make another album agin. with that being said is that right to treat one better then the other. the piont being said they all should work.

    • do you know who tiny is obviously not but she’s already earned her dues enough so she can sit at home. Do your research

  6. It is sad that women try to take advantage of some situations. She wants to live off the child support money that TI is paying her. And that is not right she should get a job and have her own income coming in. Her boys are in school there should be no reason that she can not go to work. There are a lot of mothers out here that get only a little bit of money from child support. But they work and take care of their children. She should be greatful that she is getting that much money. You as the mother also have to provide for those children also. If she was working and getting all the money that he is given her. She would be ok. I think the judge will side with TI and tell her to get a job and help support her children. The bible say God Bless The Child that is got its own……..

  7. I wonder how she would feel if the shoe was on the other foot. What if he had custody of the kids and she had to pay support. Even though he is well off legally, she would have to pay. I think he has been beyond generous with what he has given and offered to do for her and the children. She wants to live above and beyond her means which is setting a poor example for her children.

  8. I wonder what is wrong with these women. T.I.’s baby mom, 50′s, Nas’s. It seems to me that women like these women have no real self worth. Even if your baby’s father did have a enough money take care of you and your children, don’t you value yourself enough to get out on your feet and make a name and a way for yousrself???

  9. she is going to have to quite a time explaining to a judge why she feels she is entitled to more if the father is the one footing the bills

  10. That is crazy wanting to sit her a## and live off those babies money. TI has gone above and beyond helping her get a house, car and everything. All she is a user and wants to live life. She need to get her lazy a## a JOB. That is a shame.

  11. She needs to get a job. Child support is for the kids not for the mother to sit around and be unemployed. If he’s doing his part, she should do hers! GET A LIFE N A JOB!

  12. T.I has proven he takes care of his children. His babymama needs a job. She wants T.I to suppport her. He has helped her now she needs to help herself and get a job, a J.O.B. He does everything for his kids and she has the nerve to sue him like he is a deadbeat, like he has never done anything for his kids.

  13. TI has proven that he takes care of his kids, 95% of pictures out there he is with his kids, we as a society are knocking our men down And then we have some that take care of their children 100% and with all their love and presence, and we still try to knock them down……Come on people, let the men take care of their kids, so we can have a better tomorrow….

  14. Thats all whats going on i’m sure that TI is doing what he say’s and even more. His money hungry kids mother dont wanna work and wants him to take care of her too. That may have been the problem with them, and why they are not together as of today. A man admires a woman who can stand on her own two feet and not depend on him to handle 150% of the baggage. See Lashon’s just mad becaue she keep making bills for herself and cannot afford them. Damn she needs to look at it like this…….this man moved on with his future wife and have a family and is not secluding himself from his first 2 with her he just do not want to be with her he want’s TINY ok.so Lashon please stop trying to stir up trouble to make publicity moves b/c its not hot and I doubt if it works. Although TI is a very very popular rapper and well paid he may be ordered to pay the extra funda to Lashon which I really think she will spend on her own things since she do choose not to work and still exspect for TI to do everything else that I am sure he have still been doing. As TI have stated he helped her get a car, down payment on a home……damn thats love there. She should appreciate the fct that he still even looks out for her b/c there are some rappers out here that forget about the kids mom and the kids but I doubt if TI is one. In conclusion………..TI and TINY ya’
