Rapper Believes Alexis Adams Allegedly Derided Him On Social Media
Flo Rida wants a judge to punish his son’s mother for allegedly trash talking him online.
The “Welcome To My House” rapper’s lawyer filed a motion in his child support case with Alexis Adams to admonish her for allegedly defaming him on social media, his son’s mother’s lawyer Jack Giordano, told us.
Adams and Flo Rida have been locked in a contentious child support battle over their son, Zohar, who is almost three years old and was born with health problems. Last year, a judge OK’d $9,000 a month child support payments, in part because of the ongoing specialized therapy that he’ll need.
Adams has said that Flo Rida has never an active role in their son’s life.
BOSSIP was unable to determine if Adams had actually posted any offending messages, but Adams has tagged Flo Rida in posts on Instagram where she posts an inspirational quote along with a photo or video of their son.
The pair were set to appear in family court this week over Flo’s allegation, but the judge canceled the hearing at the last minute, according to court documents.
But Giordano, Adams’ lawyer said even if Adams did post offensive messages, her right to free speech is constitutionally protected and added that family court wasn’t the correct venue for the legal action.
If Flo Rida has proof that Adams defamed him, he should file suit in civil court, which would have jurisdiction over defamation claims, Giordano said. The family court only handles issues around paternity and child support.
