“Contrary to what some of y’all may believe, I’m actually okay,” he said sporting a black shirt that reads, “Shayla Rocks.” “And I’m not putting this up to calm people down. If people are having conversations about what’s going on in my personal life… my private life has always been private. Do your research. Anybody who’s ever been in my life will tell you, ‘I’ve never seen him cry that way, I’ve never seen him have a meltdown.’”

Ladies are our Queens of the Earth….. This is not about Men vs Women….

“I’m not a singer, I’m not an actor, I’m not a producer, I’m not a writer, I’m not a celebrity. I’m a father. Okay? I’m a father, it’s a universal thing,” he continued. “So please, ladies, I love y’all. Our angels wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for y’all. But this is not about men vs. women. This is men vs. liars.”

In the first video released earlier this week, he pleaded for his child’s mother to not take his daughter away from him, stating it has been two months since he’s last seen her. “I’ve been away from my baby for two months. I just want my baby and no one’s listening cause no one’s in the courtroom,” he said.

Reportedly, court documents state that Norma Gibson accused the Black Rose artist of beating their daughter on August 19, 2017. She stated that the 39-year-old actor allegedly “pushed our daughter to the ground, pinned her face down, put his knees on her back, grabbed her hands with one arm and beat her with the other.”

Further details for this case are pending.
