Even though evidence has come out showing that Jean Pierre may have pushed Lashanda Armstrong to drown herself and her kids, he still has rights as a parent.
And he’s using them to be spiteful and to make himself seem like the victim.
The deadbeat dad whose girlfriend drowned herself and their three kids in the Hudson River demanded that the mother’s funeral be separate from the service for the children.
Lashanda Armstrong — whose funeral is today — won’t even be buried with her children. Instead, she will be laid to rest in a separate cemetery, the lawyer for the father said.
Jean Pierre “felt it was important to have just one service because of the circumstances, that the mother killed herself and three children,” said lawyer Michael O’Connor.
Pierre, 26, is having the kids buried together on Monday at Gethsemane Cemetery, Congers, NY, where the owner donated plots for the three siblings.
The lawyer said Pierre was happy to have Armstrong buried with the kids, but her family decided to go ahead with their initial plans to bury her in Spring Valley, NY.
Pierre released a brief statement insisting that he has “been inaccurately portrayed as being directly responsible for the tragedy.”
SMH. Our hearts go out to Lashanda’s oldest son Lashaun. We hope the family will focus on him and not on fighting the deadbeat.
