Rick Ross wants the court to order his baby mama Tia Kemp to delete all social media posts about him and have her accounts suspended after she tore him apart online.
Tia Kemp originally sued Rick Ross for paternity back in 2007 over their son William Roberts III (named after his father). They reached a confidential settlement over custody and support in 2010.
Recently, Kemp went back to court demanding her child support be increased due to Ross’ recent financial success. Kemp says she has been trying to get more child support since 2015, but claims Ross has refused to hand over his financial records.
On February 7, Ross filed a motion to stop Kemp from addressing child-related issues on her social media and in the press.
The rapper accused Kemp of being “upset that [Ross] will not cede to her financial demands so that she can live off of child support rather than obtain employment” and is now “trying her case” to the media through “a series of vulgar tirades.”
Ross claims Kemp has made a series of Instagram posts that either insult or threaten him. He says her posts have been picked up by the national media, which he believes was her intent all along. He says Kemp even encouraged the public to bombard his social media accounts to harass him.
The “Florida Boy” rapper points to an explicit-filled live rant on Instagram where he claims she trashed him, made false claims about their child and timesharing, and shared info knowing full-well that their son would hear it. He believes she has made some of her rants with their child in the front seat, calling it “parental alienation in its most deplorable form.”
“Clearly, she is not concerned with those repercussions,” Ross says in the documents, “and her attempt to be ‘famous’ by leveraging brief relations she had with [Ross] must be put in check.”
The rapper admits Kemp has first amendment rights but wants her to be stopped from posting about the legal battle or their child. He also wants a court order making her delete all posts about him and have her social media accounts suspended until a further court order.
In addition, Ross is asking the court to appoint a third party – at Kemp’s expense – to review and approve all social media posts and media reports she wishes to provide, in advance of their being made public.
According to Ross, one of Kemp’s offending posts reads, “Couldn’t get you to call your son last month and wish him a happy birthday … How about you go call lil wills Orthodonist and Pay Dem People! His basketball tuition ain’t paid yet either, but you got Birdman (eggplant emoji) n ya mouth!”
As far as the money goes, Ross says Kemp is unemployed and claims she utilizes his generous child support payments to support her other kids and grandchildren from other relationships, all of whom live with her.
He believes the support he pays is more than adequate to meet the needs of their son. Ross is actually seeking for the support to be decreased.
Only days before he filed his response, emergency crews responded to the rapper’s Florida mansion after he was found “unresponsive” and he had to be hospitalized. Ross was out and about days after the incident.
He has yet to speak publicly about what happened.
