It looks like “Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Lil Scrappy apparently tried to be petty towards his ex-fiancée Erica Dixon, but social media wasn’t having it.
Over the past years, fans have witnessed the former couple go back and forth about their child support issues when it comes to their 14-year-old daughter Emani Richardson. Dixon claimed the “Dookie Love” rapper hasn’t been helping with their daughter to the best of his abilities. On the contrary, Lil Scrappy denied all of his ex-fiancée’s claims and assured that he is a great father. There have been a slew of mixed reactions from fans on the whole ordeal, although a large majority have seemed to side with Dixon.
In a Monday post uploaded to Scrappy’s Instagram page, the rapper shared a chain of videos and photos capturing his special helicopter ride he planned for his daughter. They apparently cruised through the city of Atlanta and dined at Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse afterward.
“#DaddyDaughterDateNight took my daughter aka my princess @official_emanii to see the city in a way I wasn’t able to see when I was a kid…,” he wrote in his caption.
Scrappy added that he cherished his relationship with his daughter and maintained he’s always taken care of his daughter, despite what others may think.
“Ion care what nobody say as long as she knows that daddy takes care of her that’s all that matters . #Enjoyyourday #Helicopteranddinner,” he added.
Many fans felt the “No Love” artist was seemingly throwing shade toward Dixon and trying to disprove her recent claims.
“This is pathetic- probably doing all this to prove a point to Erica 🙄,” one fan said. “You consistently and disgustingly disrespect the person who bought her into this world and you think this makes up for it? Sad.”
Another added, “Who you trying to prove something to us or you? Stop re visiting the subject and put much effort in blending your family and paying child support.”
Someone else commented, “Sorry but because you spend money on your child doesn’t make up for QUALITY TIME… Child support is not about giving money to her mom it’s about taking care of things that she needs WHILE YOUR NOT THERE, school, doctor visits, personal stuff etc. Ment need to stop bashing there kids mothers ❤️.”
Lil Scrappy was clearly fed up with the backlash he was receiving and fired back, “I take care of all of that and have been since she was born. … U just a person who take ups for the baby mamas without research. … It’s in the records dusty feet.”
During the latest “LHHATL” reunion that aired in July, Scrappy and Dixon got into an extremely heated argument.
The mother of three claimed Scrappy and his wife Bambi, don’t want to communicate with her, causing a strain on their co-parenting relationship. She also said that Scrap was three months behind on child payments.
The rapper denied her allegations, saying he and wife choose not to communicate with Dixon because she apparently brings drama. He also apparently showed proof he only missed one child support payment and felt she was trying to attack his character. He called Dixon a “basic baby mama.”
One thing both parents agree on is that their 14-year-old wants them to get along, but fans apparently don’t see that happening anytime soon.
Despite the criticism Lil Scrappy received from naysayers, his followers still showered him with support.
“Scrappy your a GREAT FATHER 🙌 don’t ever let nobody tell you other wise”
“F all them nay sayers! Enjoy life and all the good it brings! you came a long way good father 🤑”
