T.I. HEADS BACK TO COURT

Rapper T.i. headed back to court yesterday to face off with the mother of two of his six children, Lashon Dixon.

Via 11alive:

“My children are still the number one thing,” said T.I. after a Tuesday court hearing. “They’re the most important thing in my life and they are what I work for.”

“Basketball camp, acting lessons., anything,” said T.I.’s lawyer John Mayoue.

But T.I.’s ex-girlfriend insists their seven and eight-year-old deserve more. Lawyers for the multi-million dollar artist say T.I. now pays more than $6,000 a month in child support for private schools, tutors, and medical insurance for the children he fathered with Dixon. T.I.’s ex wants as much as $10,000 a month. She says the children T.I. fathered with other women,the ones that live with him, enjoy a much more lavish life style, and LaShon Dixon says that should be fixed.

“So it’s not so uneven and noticable between the children,” LaShon testified. “Not so noticable that it’s different.”

T.I. says that he would like to have all six of his children live with him so they can all share in his musical success daily.

“We don’t live together and have not in ten years,” T.I. testified at the hearing “That’s something we both have to grab ahold of.

“I think the children’s different standard of living with her is due to her lifestyle that she has provided for herself,” said T.I.

Judge Tipton Lane has not yet made a ruling in the case.

  1. This is a case of a disgruntled woman. T.I. pays for everything (tuition, health care, insurance, extra curriculum act.). Anything those boys ask for are provided to them by T.I.. Also, along with everything mentioned above Lashon is receiving monthly support in cash. Lashon is lazy everything has basically handed to her which includes a car for her to carry her kids around, and a down payment on her a house all giving to her by T.I.. This man has overcompensated the call of duty. If her kids cannot live the same lifestyle the measly 20-30% of the time that is not his fault. You’ll say well don’t bash the mother she is only looking out for her kids. NO!! Lashon is looking out for Lashon! So don’t bash Mr. Harris for doing what he is suppose to do. Bash the mother for doing something she is not doing which is working to help provide for kids.

  2. there are 3 sides to ever story, not 2. its his, hers and the entire truth. and fyi you have, why would you say youre a rn and then go on to say you have a 4 year nursing degree? you know what im through because anybody can make themselves look good on the internet. i dont know you and you dont know me. we all have opinions so with that said you have a blessed and safe year. well to you and your loved ones.

  3. Resonding to Nunya, Just because I have an opinion about the matter and want to defend Lashon is not based on my personal experience. If you need to know I am a 32 year old RN with a 4 year nursing degree.My mother and fathter both raised me and my sister. I don’t know anything about Lashon, I am just responding to the negative comments that are going against her. Like I said before there is always two sides to a story and the only thing we know about Lashon is her taking T.I. to court and nothingelse. She happens to be a single parent of T.I.’s oldest two children.Is it a fact that she isn’t working just because T.I. said it and then what he says is true? T.I. is bitter at his babies’ mother so he is likely to say negative comments publicly and the people such as you will side with him. There isn’t written comment anywhere that Lashon has said anything negative about T.I. except that she wants her boys to have equal share of his money.Just like with any childsuppot, if the father’s or mother’s income increase than the childsupport increases, and that is a law. We only feed off what hear, we don’t know what the facts are, but I just happen to be in Lashon’s corner because everyone is so against her.

  4. Narai, lashon need a job point blank. she knew she wanted more money from the jump when she went back to court the first time, but here it is some months later and shes asking for more money. thats nota good look and you know it. everytime TI makes another deal is she goingt o run to court to get a piece of that money or what?

    ok granted you dont have kids, did your father raise you or better yet did he take care of you financially? thats have alot to do with your stance on things.

    anyway in this society we all know when women have kids with people with a greater income, they will not live the same lavish lifestyle as their father. and you know that. lashon is not on stage and neither are those kids. if hes taking care of his kids and doing what hes supposed to be doing theres no need to get more money because its making lashon look money hungry, which she is IMO.

    what about her having a job? since your speaking for her do she have a job?

  5. To Nunya’s comment, no I don’t have kids, but I am in Lashon’s defense. It takes two people to decide to use unprotected sex and it is always two sides to a story. If T.I. and Tiny decided to split,regardless of the royalties she gets, if the money ain’t right she will have his butt in court also. She would be no different than Lashon, except for her status. Lashon has said nothing negative about T.I. or Tiny in the media..the negative comments that are said about her are coming from him and so the public is lashing at her when thay don’t know the whole story! Lashon’s babies’ daddy happens to be rich and she just want her children to have the same lifestyle T.I.’s other kids have…what’s wrong with that?

  6. I would have to second what Narai said…
    But in the end it all boils down to choices if you lay and play in the end you have to pay for kids that bring into this world.

    (side bar: It looks bad when someone (man or woman) is taking of/claiming someone else’s child and not doing the same for their own)

  7. I see all over the internet that everyone is hating on Lashon Dixon.What is the problem? T.I.and Lashon laid with each and had children together.How can she be a gold-digger when 10 years ago T.I. was not at the top of the music charts.Everyone wants to hate on Lashon, but it takes two people to concieve a child. So while people are calling Lashon a gold-digger, than Tiny needs the title also.If Lashon needs to get a job, than so does Tiny. She keeps having babies from a man who probably never, ever marry her(why buy the butt ugly when you can get it for free). T.I. is not only living with his 2 children,but he is also taking care of another man’s child. Lashon I am in your corner,your babies’daddy is T.I.”KING” Harris, get paid girl, get paid.Tiny,you are still butt ugly.

  8. My goodness, the woman get more than $6000 a month, more than enough it takes to care for two children. Even though I don’t know these people personally and just going by what I read and pictures, it seems like T.I take care of them and spend a great amount of time with them. By what I read he pays for everything else in their life on top of the support. If they up her support, she going to mess around and have to pay for all the things that T.I is paying and probably still come out about the same. I understand he makes millions, but he is also taking care of his kids. I’m sure those boys can spend just as much time at their dad home as the other kids, but she probably don’t want that cuz it will really cut her pay. Man please $6000 a month, if that’s not enough, then the judge should have her present some receipts, and like I said he paying for schools and all their other needs.

  9. Here we go again. Girl you just got that increase from $3,000! You mean to tell me that you need more now? Your amount was DOUBLED. Are you serious??? [/Neffie] Lashon needs to sit herself down and play her position. She has a good thing going. And as low as the cost of living is in Georgia, she’s living REAL good off $6,000 a month. She needs to quit. This is why men don’t want to pay child support. It’s called CHILD support, Lashon. Not “I’m a lazy treacherous hating baby mama” support.

  10. I FEEL THAT LASHON IS BEING REALLY GREEDY. I CAN SEE IF TI DIDNT TAKE CARE OF THE BOYS AT ALL AND ONLY DID FOR TINY’S CHILDREN BUT HE TAKES CARE OF ALL OF THEM. SHE NEEDS TO GET OFF HER BUTT ADN GET A JOB AND TELL THAT MAN THAT SHE WITH TO GET ONE TOO. AND WHILE SHE HATIN ON TINY SHE THE ONE THAT BE BABYSITTING AND CARING FOR THEM BOYS 80% OF THE TIME CAUSE THEY MAMA AINT AROUND. GROW UP LASHON

  11. i lived about three houses away from tips and tiny’s current residence in jonesborough geogia, i have had the least of pleasure of meeting Lashon and all i have to say for her is that i really do believe that she loved tip and i think she still does but she’s jeleous of tiny and any otha chick tip might wanna get with, she doesnt care about him as much as her money, the boys already spend about 70% of the time at the Harris residence (even though tip isnt there some of the time) tiny looks after them all anywayz… Lashon as far as i know does not have a job, ofcourse the boys will not have absolutly everything Zonnie,Major, and King have b/c they dont live with tip and tiny…i know for a fact that tip pays everything for the boys and i know that he pays for Lashons house…the boys dont really miss out on much except that they dont live in a 5,000sq foot house all the time and they have a mommy that doesnt wanna get off her ass…now if Lashon really thinks that she can make a living off of only doing hair and child support she has played her self because you need a lil more than an occasional 100 bucks for doin hair to pay for your bills and i think that Lashon shouldnt get more than two grand every month for the boys together b/c everythings all ready covered

  12. That’s difficult situation. Yes, she should be working but even after she works she will never be able to provide her children the lifestyle that TI is able to provide the children. That’s why she should have gotten married before having those children.
