Things between R&B soulster Lyfe Jennings and the mother of one of his sons have gone sour, and the trickle-down effect it's having on their child is leaving a bad taste in everyone’s mouths.
Especially after the “Must Be Nice” singer posted a video of her sharing venomous words with their young son about his father disowning him.
But his baby’s mother’s voice can be heard clearly as she speaks to their son from the front of the car. “Your brother is going?” she asks him. “I’m sorry, daddy said he got five other kids he don’t want you. That’s what he said.” She then goes on gently stating to him that his other children is the reason Lyfe left him.
Their son falls silent for a while before she asks if he “just wants to hang out with mommy” and run into the store.
“This is the sh** I gotta deal with!!!” Lyfe blasted on Instagram. “Lying to your own son this is child abuse!!!”
He continued, shaming her for the demeaning tactics against their son to boost herself up. There’s no doubt in his mind that the video came from a place of pure vindictiveness since she recorded the video herself and sent it to him. Sharing the same sentiments as mostly everyone who witnessed the video via social media, Lyfe derided her for aiming such toxic, and patterned, behavior at their son. “And this isn’t the first time…my little man should have better than this!!!” he wrote. “Um f**king shaking I’m so mad right now…I would NEVER DO THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!! Don’t ever do this to a child!”
