Flo Rida is grateful for his supporters after news of his 6-year-old son falling five stories spread on the Internet. The recording artist took to Instagram Live on Thursday (Mar. 30) to give thanks to his fans.
“Great day,” Flo Rida began his message of gratitude. “Thank you to everyone who reached out with their concerns and prayers for my son,” the recording artist added. “[Zohar] is getting the best medical care and miraculously survived a tragic fall.”
News of Zohar falling five flights from an apartment window in New Jersey began to spread last week. The incident reportedly occurred at the beginning of March and left Zohar with several significant injuries. Flo Rida’s 6-year-old suffered from a lacerated liver, collapsed lungs, fractures, and internal bleeding as the result of his fall. Zohar’s mom, Alexis Adams, has moved to sue the construction and window installation companies for negligence.
“As a single mom to a special needs child, this feels like a nightmare,” Alexis shared with the press. “My heart is broken into a million pieces,” she continued. “I am devastated, angry, and struggling to come to terms with the fact that my only child has suffered severe injuries due to willful negligence of our landlord and others involved in failing to take necessary safety measures.”
Flo Rida tends to keep his family matters away from the spotlight. The recording artist did, however, discuss his creative process during a 2018 interview with Billboard.
“Growing up in Miami, having these different cultures and being inspired in so many ways musically has let me have a very long career, ’cause just when you think I’m gonna do this type of record, I go and do something else,” Flo Rida shared. “I think it’s the fact that I’m more like a chameleon who holds his ground,” the rapper continued.
“If I get in the studio, it’s very organic,” Flo Rida shared. “I like to go off how I feel. I’m definitely not gonna stop making what got me to where I’m at or what inspires me. I’m just not sticking to one thing. I like to have fun with it. I like to spread myself in many ways so you’re gonna get all types of music.”
