He Also Wants His Daughter's Surname Changed

Offset wants joint custody of his daughter, Kalea, with Shya L’amour. The rapper recently filed court documents requesting shared custody along with a petition to change his oldest daughter’s surname.



Shya gave her and Offset’s daughter her last name, which is Algarin, at birth. Offset, whose real name is Kiari Cephus, would like to change Kalea’s surname so that it reflects her paternal lineage.

It was just a few weeks ago that Shya L’amour, whose real name is Nicole Algarin, filed a petition for more child support from her daughter’s father. L’amour admitted that Offset paid to care for their daughter but told the courts that the amount Kalea’s dad provided only provided the bare necessities.

Kalea is one of four children Offset fathers. The celebrity dad had all of his kids with him on Father’s Day, which was a treat. It was just last year that Offset released his first studio album called Father of 4, which highlighted his journey as a dad.

“I am a FATHER OF 4,” Offset told his social media fans upon releasing his debut album. “The most beautiful and smart kids I could ask for,” the celebrity dad gushed about his children. “I want them to understand there dad for the good and the bad. The decisions I made was (sic) to feed [them]. I’m not a perfect FATHER BUT I AM A FATHER OF 4!”

Stay tuned for more celebrity father news!
