Percy Miller, a.k.a. Master P, is withholding nothing when it comes to his relationship with estranged wife Sonya Miller. The Hip Hop mogul tells Wendy Williams about his efforts to rear his children with Sonya and the custody hearing that he missed.
“I think that people got to realize that in a relationship, things happen, people grow together or they grow apart,” says P. “I’m not mad at [Sonya]. I love her. She’s my kids’ mother and we have to take care of our kids forever. I think what people need to realize is when lawyers come into play, and you know, you got lawyers who don’t know your business, or don’t know where you come from, they play a big effect.”
Miller missed a court date, which caused him to lose custody of his kids. The rapper tells Williams that he was trying to sort through his daughter’s academic and behavioral habits with the school principal at the time. “She’s out of control,” explains the star. “My dad put the belt on me. When I got acting bad…that’s what I really want to do but then I’ll be back on–somebody said ‘P did this.’ Sometimes you do need to be chastised. I’ve been with her, I’ve been going to the school on my own, dealing with principals and saying you know what ‘You’re a smart girl, you’re beautiful, you need to get it together in school because that’s all I’m asking you to nothing else but do your school work.'”
Master P and the family are set to have their own reality show in coming months. Although Wendy is concerned about the rap star exposing his kids to the scrutiny of the public, Percy says that he and his family will bring something fresh to the genre. “The difference with me, that I feel like right now, is that my life has been a big secret. People never got a chance to see how the Millers really live. And this is a fun show, as a single father raising his kids. It’s funny. We’re going out traveling, doing things, showing our life saying where we come from. We come from the projects and we want to motivate kids all across the country to say, ‘P did it, we can do it.'”
Percy Miller has seven kids with Sonya.
