Did you know that Master P was due in court for a child custody hearing earlier this week? Neither did the Hip Hop mogul. The rapper revealed that he was not aware that a court date had been set for a judge to determine if he would retain full custody of his minor children.
“At the time of the court hearing that I was not aware of, I was actually at my daughter, Italy’s school speaking with her principal,” said the artist in a statement. “My daughter is failing in all of her courses and has 21 unexcused absences during this school year.”
Master P further explained, “Italy is the only child living with her mother and is not getting the proper guidance nor direction as to making wise choices. Her mother allowed her to go to Disneyland on a school day during finals week. Half of the time her mother doesn’t even know where she is or who she’s with. This is disappointing and embarrassing to me. I just got back into town from holding basketball camps in Kentucky, helping at-risk youth and have to come back home to deal with negativity in my own family. How can a judge grant custody to an unfit mother whose only motive for gaining custody is to get more money? Sonya’s only concern is herself, partying and hanging out with her friends.”
Regardless of Sonya’s inability to properly rear her children, it appears that she may be the leading authority when it comes to the kids, since Master P’s absence in court caused the judge to grant his estranged wife full custody of them.
Master P and Sonya Miller have seven children together.
