The climate in 2007 was har*owing for many: an international w-ar on te*ror wa*ed on, ga*oline prices were well over $4 per gallon in many states, and the Great Recession’s tr*mors were already being felt.
Some form of respite, as fle-eting as it may have been coming in the form of an unforgettable chorus: “…Apple Bottom Jeans/Bo-ots with the Furrrr/The Whole Club was lookin’ at her/Next thing you know/She hit the flo’/Shorty got Low-Low-Low-Low-Low-Low-Low”… for many, quite an anthem.
Flo Rida, the Florida rapper, legally named Tramar Lacel Dillard, gave the nightclubs a real d!tty to get “Low” to.Fla-sh forward to 2016, and a romantic interest by the name of Alexis Adams informs him that she is pregnant with a son and that the Florida chart-topping rapper is the father.
Adams all*ges that Dillard was unabashedly di*missive of the news, ref*sing to believe her until a paternity test confirmed a 99.9 PERCENT DNA match between him and the then 3-month-old boy.
According to Adams, who originally met Flo in 2015, “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, anything. It was very cold.”
Advance in time again to the present day and Adams is publically cha*tising Dillard for the same, a bla*ant disinterest in seeing his son, the now 4-year-old Zohar Paxton.
Despite providing financial support (which includes medical coverage), Adams fa*lts the moneyed recording artist for not establishing a relationship and providing fatherly care to a son, who was di*gnosed with hydr*cephalus, which is a neurological condition that allows an excess of cer-ebrospinal flu!d to flo*d the brain.
Hydr-ocephalus can ca-use na-usea, vomiting, di-storted vision, and hearing, as well as an enlarged head. On charity and the afor-ementioned support, Adams’ lawyer Brian Robinson reports that Flo Rida hadn’t begun to pay child support until sometime in March of 2017 (about 5 months after Zohar’s birth) and also at an amount that was “significantly less than the later provisional amount chosen by the judge.”
Adams would be successful in court one month later, procuring the increased sum for her special-needs son. Flo Rida would tell TMZ that he was paying her $5,000 a month and her legal actions were a “cash gr-ab.”Adams cla!ms that the rapper called Zohar “an ev!l f’n’ child.” Adams ref-utes his judgment stating, “Zohar is very loving, he ki*ses and hu-gs everybody. He’s a very happy baby and interactive with people, that’s one thing people notice when they meet him.”
She also added, “Clearly Zohar’s not the only one and there’s a lot of things I can’t discuss but I’m sure the truth will come out;” which is perhaps an all*sion to Flo Rida’s 2013 child support lawsu!t made by Natasha Georgette Williams, a former model.
