The revelation of Bow Wow fathering a son comes with a backstory. The celebrity father’s feelings about the situation were revealed during last night’s episode of Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta.
Bow Wow’s manager, Andy, approached him with Olivia Sky’s social media post that deemed the rapper as the father of her son. Bow Wow admitted that he had relations with Olivia. The two, however, no longer kept strong communications. Bow admitted that, despite growing apart from one another, he wished Sky would have spoken with him before airing out their private matters to the public.
“I wish she could have done it in a better way or we could have talked about it in a nice release through PEOPLE magazine or however we could have done it other than just, bam, Internet,” Bow Wow said. “Alright cool,” he continued. “Like, what are you looking for other than attention? And I get enough of that.”
Olivia Sky hinted at Bow Wow fathering her son last September. Many fans commented on an Instagram candid that featured the model’s son in which the little one had facial features similar to Bow Wow’s physical appearance. Some called for the rapper to make a public statement addressing allegations of him fathering another child. Bow Wow, however, refused to say anything until after the paternity results were revealed.
“At first I was nervous,” Bow Wow recently said of the situation. “I don’t understand why people feel like they got to put everything on social media,” the celebrity added. “Once she did that, I kind of got low from the energy.”
Bow Wow also felt like Olivia Sky had done something underhanded by posting a photo of their son on Instagram. “I kind of felt betrayed,” the celebrity father said during Thursday night’s episode of Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta. “I really didn’t approve [of] putting the photo out there like that,” he added.
Bow Wow confirmed himself as the father of Olivia Sky’s son through a song from his most recent project. The celebrity dad has two kids in all.
