Bow Wow’s daughter Shai has changed his life, he revealed in an open letter he penned to fans. While he credits her with making him into a man, he refuses to put her into the spotlight (and he gives good reason). Unfortunately, not all that glitters is gold and from the tone of his letter, it seems Bow Wow and his baby mama Joie aren’t getting along – at all.
Read it in his own words here:
“I wanted to be 1st n let yall know the real. My lil girl is getting BIG fast. i love every minute of it. She inspires me to go harder. Even made me treat my mother better, its like it made me into a man over night.
Never been a fan of posting pix of my daughter. Reason is because i want my boo boo to have everything i didnt. Want her to be able to cheerlead with her lil friends with out some asshole sticking his camera all in my lil girl face. I know how fame is. I missed out on so much that i now know how important it is to cherish and have those things in your life.
Yes! I change diapers. Aint as bad as i thought hahaha. I want her to live with me so bad. Jus us 2. Thats my dream man but fellas yall know how it go. Baby gotta stay with they momma and all dat bull. I hate that! So i have to fly 5 hrs away to see her. I find myself going into my i phone book jus lookn at pix of her. Sometimes i tear up cuz i just cant believe it brotha be emotional. All in all im good.
This is my 1st. I know all my fans gone support me and ride for her like yall been doin my whole career. To the ones that say “Im heart broken how can he do that to us” well i do have a life thats not all about movies or making albums. Im 24 now. I cant wait 4eva. Im happy and if your a fan then ud be happy too cuz yall gone be with me every step of the way.
The bs that comes with having a baby momma is expected. So i neva trip. Jus gotta suck it up keep chin high and try not let her get the best of my feelings by playin them stupid games. Ima stay positive and keep maintaining long as i got yall i cant lose. I love yall. And shai shai daddy love u too!”
Also, Bow Wow tweeted this subliminal message yesterday: “Love “her” to death. Hate “you” deeply.”
Then a “fan” giving her two cents told Joie: “No disrespect but maybe he throwing you under the bus b/c you weren’t his choice to be the person to give him that gift….”
Joie snapped back: “then maybe he shouldn’t have been asking me for it prior. Know what your talking about before you open your mouth.”
DRA-MA. Let’s hope these two can pull it together long enough to raise their child – meaning, forever.
