The mother of Flo Rida’s one-year-old son has officially opened up about the rapper’s relationship, or lack thereof, with their 19-month-old Zohar Paxton. In fact, in an interview with Daily Mail, Alexis Adams, 34, claimed the “Low” rapper refused to see his son since she gave him a DNA test that proved he was a 99.9 percent match to baby Paxton.
“Flo Rida has only seen his son once during the paternity test but kept his shades on and his back turned. They were in the same room. He didn’t try to hug Zohar, nothing. It was very cold,” she said, as she revealed her son’s condition.
According to the publication, Paxton suffers from hydrocephalus, which is a rare brain disorder that causes an abnormal accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid in cavities in the brain. While symptoms vary, the condition can cause a baby’s head to grow abnormally, headaches, and vision problems, which is why Adams believes the rapper, whose real name is Tramar Lacel Dillard, needs to do more.
“Being a single mom going to a lot of doctor’s appointments and not knowing what else your son might need is heart-breaking,” she said.
Although Flo Rida provides child support and pays for his son’s medical insurance, Adams said he didn’t even call after their son underwent brain surgery for his incurable condition.
“Even after Zohar’s surgery, he hasn’t reached out to find out if he’s okay,” Adams said. “I find it strange because Flo Rida is always involved in charities pertaining to kids.”
But, when it came to her and her baby, according to Adams, Flo Rida wanted nothing to do with it. In fact, she said he tried to get her to have an abortion.
“It caught me off-guard. I was pregnant and hormonal – one minute happy, then sad. You want support. You don’t know what to think when you’re pregnant and someone’s like that,” she said of the rapper. “He called my baby “an evil f*cking child. Those were his exact words.”
According to Adams though, this was before she found out about her babies condition because she only spoke to Flo a few times early on in her pregnancy before they lost contact. As a result, she went through her high-risk pregnancy alone, and let her lawyers work out communications with Flo until her son’s birth.
“He didn’t respond,” Adams said of the text she sent the rapper after her son was born. “Flo Rida was aware of how high-risk my pregnancy was and he is entirely aware of Zohar’s condition. He does not want any involvement.”
“None of Flo Rida’s family has reached out to check on Zohar at all – not at Christmas, New Year or his birthday. No one has expressed any kind of concern. I believe they couldn’t care less. It would be nice to have some type of co-parenting but you just make it work, you deal with it.”
Eventually, Adams drew up paperwork to get Flo Rida to get a DNA test, pay child support and his son’s health insurance, which all went into affect in March 2017 after results proved he was the father. One month later though, Adams took him back to court to get more, as “she does not feel the support is enough for a special needs child.”
