Flo Rida is allegedly not paying his son's medical bills after the little boy experienced a horror fall from a five-storey building.
According to the six-year-old boy's mother, Alexis Adams, the rapper is not covering the child's hospital costs.
The son, Zohar Dillard, sustained some pretty serious injuries after falling out of the New Jersey apartment complex building earlier this month (4 March).
According to a lawsuit filed by Adams this week (27 March), the minor suffered a 'a shattered pelvis, left metatarsal fractures, Grade 3 liver laceration, internal bleeding and collapsed lungs' after falling from the colossal height into the concrete ground.
He was taken to the ICU where he underwent medical treatment.
"As a single mom to a special-needs child, this feels like a nightmare. My heart is broken into a million pieces," Adams said in a statement to Insider.
She continued: "I am devastated, angry and struggling to come to terms with the fact that my only child has suffered severe injuries due to wilful negligence of our landlord and others involved in failing to take necessary safety measures."
The suit claims that Zohar 'has been and in the future will be caused great pain and suffering, to his great loss and damage and will in the future suffer great physical and mental pain and suffering'.
Adams is claiming that Flo Rida, real name Tramar Dillard, has not financially helped with health insurance costs which were mandated by a court-ordered child support agreement back in 2018.
And, according to the mother, this has been going on for years.
Back in January of this year, Adams stated that Flo Rida had not adequately fulfilled his court-ordered support payments surrounding his son's education and health insurance, per Insider.
The rapper was consequently ordered by a Bronx County Family Court to pay Adams $9,000 every month for child support, alongside the total cost of Zohar's education and health insurance, court filings report.
In response to the tragic fall, the rapper posted a story on Instagram on Wednesday (29 March), revealing to his 900,000 followers that is son is 'getting the best medical care and miraculously survived a tragic fall'.
"I ask for your continued prayers as he undergoes rehabilitation," the father added, before asking his fans to 'appreciate that this remains [sic] a private matter.'
The lawsuit is currently seeking an undisclosed amount of money in medical damages for the six-year-old, who Adams said 'has been disabled and in the future will be disabled and not be able to perform his usual functions', according to the court document.
"I am just so grateful that my son is alive, fighting, and is still here with me. He's a real-life superhero," she concluded.
UNILAD has previously reached out to Flo Rida's representatives for comment on the matter.
