T.I. Responds To Lashon Dixon Child Support Claims

Lashon Dixon, the mother of ’s two sons Domani and Messiah, has taken legal action against the rap mogul claiming that he only provides $2,000 a month in child support and that she has a difficult time supporting the boys on this contribution. A response to the allegations to StreetCred.com, a website that the rapper is a shareholder in, read in part:

To clarify the recent reports, in addition to the $2000 per month I pay in cash to Lashon Dixon, the mother of my sons Domani and Messiah, I also pay for their private schooling, medical insurance, clothing, food, gifts, birthdays and extracurricular activities. Their extra-curricular activities have included football, basketball, baseball, acting lessons, summer camp, and any other activities that they express a desire to be involved in that will contribute to them leading balanced lives and developing into well rounded individuals. I have also made an attempt to help Lashon with additional payments that have included a down payment to purchase her home, purchase of an automobile for her transportation and other financial obligations. These expenses are documented and are far in excess of the $2000 cash payment that is being paid direct to Lashon. She has chosen not to work and to live 100% from her child support receipts. This is the reason for her difficulties in making ends meet for herself.

The full response at streetcred.com has since been removed (the site was shut down).

    T.I….she does have a job. It’s called being a stay home mom and taking care of your kids, so they’ll grow up as role models and don’t end up in jail. STUPID. Give the woman more money. $2000 is barely enough for a single person to survive. Taking care of 2 kids at the same time…please… T.I. is possibly the biggest sting out there.

  2. Jess says:

    He pretty much has 6 kids;
    && he is paying for all of them;
    including his parents && “wifey”

    2,000 a month is more than enough;
    if she wants money for her own expenses;
    then she needs to get a JOB!

    lazy biSH!

  3. shonte says:

    Man 2000 ain’t nothing. I’m a mother of an 8 month old and I make a little more than two grand a month plus I live with my boyfriend and we split bills. And it’s a struggle. Tip better get off that bread his kids need to live good just like him and his other children are

  5. Skosha says:

    Jess your right on the money with what you said. People must have read over the fact that he pays for everything else to, including a down payment for a home and a car. Plus the luxury of 2000 a month for the pocket. My reaction to the title was the same as the majority of the comments on here until I read the article. If it was just 2000 I would be like whatever but its not so people slow down………….

  6. O says:

    Lashon is a lazy ho

  7. Miss Vorhies says:

    I agree with Skosha. $2,000 pocket money and he pays for any and everything those kids need. A down payment on a home and a car for her is way more than what a lot of men would do. It’s his job 2 take care of the kids and not her. She’s lucky. If she needs her hair & nails done and the latest designer clothes, then she should get a job. The money is for the kids.

  8. xxx says:

    I see most people didn’t read the whole article..If he paying for EVERYTHING his kids need plus child support,and helping her to get a car and home (which is not his job) he is clearly doing his part and handling his business. It’s not like his kids out here looking raggedy and he only giving 2000 a month.. it seems like his BM is lazy and think she deserves to live the high life.

  9. LadyT says:

    I have read some of the comments that are posted and some of them are down right crazy. He is paying for everything for his children and somethings for their mother too. He gave her a down payment for a house and money for a car. She needs to get out there and get a job if she is struggling. Her kids are in school during the day so she can work then. She can still be a good parent and go to work too. There are millions of women out there that are doing that very thing on a daily basis. She just needs to get up and support herself. She would be doing that if her sons father was not rich.

    How about learning to use both control. I’m so sick of seeing single black sperm receptacles

  11. GBMaker says:

    No doubt, I feel where TIP coming from, although we don’t live the same lifestyle. I pay for everything my son wants to do, and everything he needs, and I’m also a respectful caring father who had some discrepancies with his mom. However, that does not make me liable to support his mom’s lifestyle. Once that mutual decision is made when parents split up or divorce, it all boils down to the child. When have any of you heard parents who are splitting you discuss who one parent is going to take care of the other. I catch hell almost everyday as a result towards why won’t I give my sons mother more money. According to my books, my son eats everyday, wears damn good clothes, and gets as TIP would say whatever he likes! It’s bad enough that some fathers wouldn’t do anything as close to what TIP is doing for him son, and his moms, along with a new ole lady, and four possible other children. In a nut shell, regardless of past mistakes, TIP is being a good father to his KIDS, if she wants a more lavishing lifestyle that’s what her father is for. Plus come on ladies (only some), you all know you all don’t like to see a man happy once he leaves you, and starts living a better life.

  12. kim says:

    I’m between on this one cause he can wipe his ass with 2000 dollars but at the same time with that and plus he pays for all those other things his kids should be good she just knows he has a lot of money and feels she should be taken care of too but that’s not the way it goes his kids are his only responsibility not her and that’s were the problem is while she is not working should be going to school or something to try and better her self.

  13. natasha says:

    I agree with Tip. There are so many men out there that would never put there hand in their pockets for their kids, yet he is paying 2000 a month plus all the extra curriculum activities PLUS her car and down payment. I think she has a cheek to ask for anymore money. some people are so ungrateful, they don’t appreciate what they DO get.

  14. Michelle says:

    If he pays for everything else when it comes to his kids clothes, entertainment, health insurance, car, house, toys, then an additional 2,000 come on I am a woman I have been single raising mine and she has it easy , some women become lazy , they look at their kids as a way for them to get paid yo know , dollar signs she is not disabled , is she going to school to better herself, has she even tried to find a job one she can work while her kids are at school, you can be a great mom and still work those kids are little babies anymore , so for everyone saying she has a full time job she can stay at home all day , okay tell me what is she doing those hours while they are in school? role model? what will she tell her kids she did I sat home all day long not trying to better myself, living off your child support money, getting my hair done, getting my clothes, riding in the car your dad pays for do you see where I am going with this? I work I went to college, am in college again , I am a role model not b/c I sit on my ass and get my kids money but b/c I can stand on my own , and help take care of my kids too, and I can take care of me without using the money their dad’s send, if she had no kids she would still have to pay rent, get a car , get her own health ins, so tell me what’s wrong with her taking care of herself? Not a damn thing …as a dad that man is doing all he is suppose to do I can’t stand women who use the kids money for themselves and complain they want more when if all that money was used on the kids and not them the kids would be fine you know , she is upset because she wants to be included in the payment. Now can he afford to give more I am sure he can but still she needs to support herself and why not help support her kids too . I love knowing I do for mine that it’s not me relying on their dad’s money.

  15. Tired says:

    He gives his girlfriend $2000 for a day for a purse surely he could shell over a bit more for his kids to live better.

  16. MeShell says:

    First of all I am a fan of T.I., but I’m also a single parent of 2. What I’ve seen in my life as well as many others, men try to CONTROL things, even with the ex. He “throws” her the $2000, but he pays for the other things, which is totally in his control…what, when, where, if he wants….control. Isn’t child support supposed to be based on income….come one people, this is not based on his income he should be doing better for them, the boys are only 7 and 9. He could have purchased them a nice home and automobile easily! He probably does more for Tiny’s parents than he is doing for the ones who were there when he had nothing! Black men, when are you going to step up and stop being made to. You want to be treated like a “King”, then start acting like 1! I am still a T.I. fan, but a little disappointed in this, Bobby Brown was probably paying more support than this!

  17. Hemaaa says:

    Are you kidding me? 2,000 bucks a month is more then enough. and the kids are young, and so what if they do after school sports? it still doesn’t equal to 2,000 bucks. She spends the money on herself so of course it wont be enough, fu**ing gold diggers. And its even worse at the fact she uses her kids as her pawns. Why doesn’t she work? there are many mom that work and have kids and make ends make WITH MUCH LESS MONEY. She needs to learn how to do so, and to spend that money on her children, not herself.

  18. MeShell says:

    There are 2 parents, but the majority of the time it falls on the woman! The men come and go as they please, they pay what they want when they want, it doesn’t work that way for the custodial parent! I’m sick of hearing about the poor daddy or man who can just hop from one to another and go on without any of the burdens. The men need to step it up!

  19. kotazzyx says:

    TI is doing all he needs to he pays for everything for those kids, he pays her bills making her life easy, he can’t be there all the time because he is making them money they are living the big life staying with their mom anyway TI is showing them the real. TI is an amazing person he has made mistakes and is turning his life around helping others, and he would do anything for those kids, they wanted they get it so. you all need to back off and stop being jealous fools! Let the man live he is doing no harm. god bless!

  20. Kay says:

    Man…. I don’t get ANY assistance (financial or otherwise) from my BD. If he is providing for ALL of the kids needs and then ON TOP OF THAT giving her $2000 each month, that, as far as I am concerned is what he should be doing. And as far as her talking about the kids have gotten used to a certain lifestyle with him, well then since she is not working, maybe she should take her ass back to school and aspire to be something MORE than a hairdresser or whatever she does so that SHE CAN give her kids more too. And the stay at home mom ish… PLEASE. Those kids are 7 and 9 and they are in school. What is there to stay at home for?? My daughter is 2, but I don’t get the luxury to stay at home. I work long hours AND still go to school. I cannot sit around and wait for this n*gga to kick down some dough and help me take care of his child. I have to do it on my own. So all these b*tches complaining about how much they get and how they need more, keep in mind that SOME OF US don’t get A DIME and we STILL making it. TIP keep up the good work. Sounds to me like you are doing plenty. You can be a lesson to the rest of these lames out here that DON’T support their children.

  21. Sam says:

    He does not need to pay her any more money then he already is. I am a single mother as well and I would be so damn lucky to get what she gets now. Be happy for what you have. He pays for all other experiences and gives her 2,000 on top of that. I think the chick needs to get a job. Just because you have children with someone doesn’t mean that they need to live like they are you wife. He lives big because he has made it himself she needs to get off his coat tails.

  22. whaaaat says:

    Whoever disagrees with T.I. is a motherfu**in idiot and I said it… maybe I’m a little late but I didn’t hear about all this until I heard his verse about her in “the way you want it”. this bitch needs to get a motherfu**in job… and whoever said being a stay at home mom is a job is an idiot because it surely does not pay the bills. she has it made, all she has to do is pay for sh** for herself. in my opinion she shouldn’t even get the 2 though.

  23. mz.moneymaka says:

    S***, I wish I received 2000 in child support. I only get about 650, and I manage to make ends meets. That’s whats wrong with us females today we always wanna rely on these n***as. She needs to get off her butt and work. She doesn’t deserve fame just because he got it…

  24. too much drama says:

    For all the money hungry men and women: GET A GRIP! Reality check it takes two people to have and support kids. Once you leave the relationship do expect for someone to take care of you. No matter how much money he makes it is not his responsibility to take care of her. She needs to get off her a** and get a job. She has just as much responsibility to take care of them as he does. I don’t care how much money I make I only a few responsibilities when it comes to my kids (feed them, clothe them, and provide shelter for them) they don’t have jobs nor are then entitled to anything. If he is giving thousands a month to her then paying for everything else too then what is the child support for. The courts are twisted. I make considerably more than my children’s father but he still has to make his payment everymonth. I don’t carry other adults.

  25. Speak_EZ says:

    BITTER…she is bitter so she wants more…she needs to get a job, because living off of him is giving her way too much idle time to see what the hell he is up to. Yes we woman fall for these men, but we must take responsibility too! She needs to get involved in something productive, use that brain power and start building a life of her own, instead of making her life all about an ex man she had kids for…get it together girl!!

  26. Ron J aka Mr.43203 says:

    To those who have been to Child Support you will know that both parent are to bring their pay stubs because both parents are required to support the child financially.. They just enforce the absent parent to do so.. So in saying that when I got divorced we had to go to a seminar held by the county and a handicap white lady told everyone in the room child support is not to be used to pay your rent… Mom you take your money to raise the child and dad you do the same… and all you females on here saying he should give her more you know darn well that if he was your man you wouldn’t be cool with him buying her a house and a car let alone giving her millions.. so just stop now.. y’all see Diddy go through that and think that goes for everybody.. Kim got him cause she knew he was a hoe.. Jay-Z said it best you want half my stacks like you wrote half my raps… Bottom line both of them have to support them kids.. and while she’s running her mouth she is admitting that she is in contempt of court cause she ain’t paying for a thing.. and yes I said it cause that’s what all these Grandma’s are telling the judge when they go to court to get the support for the kids they are keeping while their daughters are keeping the money…

  27. Lala says:

    Child support is based on two parents. Apparently the courts did the numbers and it requires 4,000 a month to take care of the two kids. Where is her part? She is looking for him to do the whole and then some. If he chooses to keep throwing her extra that is cool and very good of him. But the witch is grown and can take care of herself. I have kids and I work. My kids are just fine. If she wanted to be an industry ho she didn’t play her part very well. Move on to the next victim!

  28. Jacue says:

    $2000.00 a month is very generous for 2 children. She should be a responsible person herself. It took two make the kids. What’s her financial contribution to the kids. It certainly should be more than chasing the kids daddy for money. She’s using her kids to pimp money from T.I. Get a job and be grateful for what you got.

  29. Don't matter says:

    I don’t think the issue is money I think he just doesn’t want to give her the money because she might spend it on herself if she really cared about her kids she would get a job and stop trying to live off of him he probably would help her out if she were trying to help herself..

  30. jones says:

    ok dude makes 8 million a year. but he puts in a lot for them, I guess its ok. If Dixon wants to handle personal expenses, she should get a job

  31. Keyana says:

    LaShon is wrong for now getting a job. Just because your kids have a father that is very wealthy doesn’t mean he has to pay for everything for you. It’s called “CHILD SUPPORT” for a reason because he is supposed to pay to support the children not to support her needs. The fact that a woman is willing to sit on her butt for a living because she has kids by a rapper is pathetic. I could see if she was trying and had a job, but it’s like she is using her kids to try to get rich. I wonder what she would be doing if she didn’t have children by him. That’s just lazy as a woman I believe that you shouldn’t depend on any man especially not your baby daddy who has moved on. He is doing exactly what he is obligated to do. Take care of his kids not her. And if anyone disagrees then we reply to this and I could tell you about yourself too.

  32. MageAtl says:

    I have to agree with the majority…If T.I’s baby mama wants her sons to have a lifestyle. She should WORK for it not expected it to be handed to her because of who their father is. T.I is paying for private school, medical insurance, extracurricular activities, birthdays, etc. then the basic needs are already being taken care of. The $2K/month, car and down payment on house are extra which he was under no obligation to provide but did so for the well being of his sons which is what she should be concerned of as well. The are working mothers who are raising their children who get NO support from the father. Yet they see to it that their kids want for nothing. You give one of them $2K just once and they make it last and have a little left over. So whats her excuse when she gets that plus schooling, medical care, clothes paid for?

  33. Diana says:

    CHILD SUPPORT is support for the child, not baby mama support. He is supporting his children. If SHE needs more money for herself and HER bills then she needs to find a way to do that. His kids are taken care of. It sounds like he knows she is just money hungry because he has found a way to fully provide for his children without putting all of the money into her hand and hoping she spends it on the kids.

    FYI I am a single mom and I don’t receive any child support. I recognize a responsible father when I see one, and I recognize a greedy ass baby mama when I see one too.

  34. Mrs. Bombshell says:

    This guy lives like a KING as he likes to say so much. If women are lazy stop laying with them and creating illegitimate bastard children. I think 2000 dollars is nothing for him. I bet his lawyers cost more than that. Get a grip. Women are less desirable when they have children and should be compensated. his children are worth more. I don’t care what else he does. I’m sure his clothes, parties, lawyer fees, and expenses for his other children out weigh what he does for her or them. If he didn’t want the burden he shouldn’t have donated sperm. Black People need to get real and stop producing and moving on from their children like we’re in the wild.

  35. Michele Proctor says:

    Just felt the need to enlighten a few of you who are clearly uniformed ….T.I.’s wife Tiny has her own money before she even met him. He is not taking care of her, in fact in the beginning of their relationship , she was The major breadwinner. And she continues to receive royalties.

  36. Ken Ferrell says:

    He doing his part, so what in the hell you contributing financially? These are your kids too. TI wife works and we know she doesn’t have to, why can’t you?
