Flo Rida, real name Tramar Dillard, will pay his son’s mother $1,000 more per month in child support. A Bronx Family Court judge ruled in favor of the child’s mother, Alexis Adams, after Flo was a “no-show” in court last month.
“What does he care,” Judge Shira Atzmon reportedly asked Flo Rida’s attorney, Howard Fletcher. The Justice of the Peace went on to tell the rapper’s lawyer that the whole ordeal was “all about money” and that she’d “had it up to here” with Flo’s apparent antics.
Part of what set Judge Atzmon off was the fact that Flo Rida has only met his son, Zohar, once since his birth. Meanwhile, Alexis has been left to handle medical care and other daily essentials by herself.
“He’s not involved in this child’s life,” Judge Atzmon reportedly said. “He’s met him once.”

It certainly did not help that Flo Rida was absent from the court proceedings last month. The rapper was allegedly unaware of the need for his presence, which is why he continued his tour in Egypt and left legal matters surrounding his child custody case to his lawyer. Flo has reportedly said that he will be at the next hearing.

Alexis Adams’ lawyer, Jack Giordano, commented on the judge’s decision to increase Flo Rida’s child support payments from $8,000 to $9,000 per month after the proceedings convened. “I feel like this case has gone on too long, needlessly,” he said. “I think Alexis has demonstrated herself as a great mother for Flo’s baby. I think the judge shared that view and was generous to Flo’s lawyer to give him one more month to try to resolve it.”
