M.I.A. Facing Child Custody Battle


Last year Hip Hop artist M.I.A. was accused of abandoning her son and fiance Ben Bronfman [click here if you missed that]. 

Now M.I.A. is accusing Ben and his family of trying to take her son...

Yesterday M.I.A. posted a rant on Twitter directed her former fiance and his rich family.

From Page Six
Rapper M.I.A has been banned by a court from taking her and Benjamin Bronfman’s son out of Brooklyn, where they live separately following their split last year. Sources exclusively tell Page Six that Bronfman, the son of music mogul and Seagram’s heir Edgar Bronfman Jr., got a restraining order in Kings County Court after M.I.A allegedly threatened to take their son Ikhyd, 4, to her native London. A source tells us, “M.I.A has been texting and calling Ben, saying she will take their son to London, even though they both live in Brooklyn and the child goes to school there.” The source added, “Ben filed a motion for a temporary restraining order preventing her from taking their son to the UK against his wishes.” The court granted Bronfman’s petition, and M.I.A was served with the legal paperwork last night. On Twitter, the rapper has accused the wealthy Bronfman family of trying “to take my child away from me.” Bronfman’s lawyer, Susan Moss, declined to comment, and the rapper’s record label rep didn’t get back to us by deadline.

Okay MIA why would your baby daddy allow you take the child to London and run the risk of not seeing him again. Do you know how many international child abductions go on each year b/c the parents have a contentious relationship?

I didn't read where he was trying to take the child from you, he just doesn't want to run the risk of you fleeing the country. But you better be careful because your baby daddy is wealthy and he may decide to do just that!

I thought she was the one who didn't see the child. This mess been going on for a minute. One of them need to get it together and stop acting like there is not a young child involved.

If I recall correctly,
she is the one that left her child to go and tour.
She chose what was important to her then and there.

@8:44 she still has bills to pay. She was an entertainer before the child and she will be one after. JLO, Madonna, Brandy, Britney, all have to leave their children somewhere when they go to make their money. Is she supposed to tell the electric company that she is a mother so she needs free electric?

@9:10 Maybe she should have gotten a career change perhaps? Madonna and Britney left their children to "work" and look at where that got them. There is actually something called a day job. You know, a regular form of income? she doesn't necessarily have to be a washed up, attention whoring electropop, "artist". She should have gotten her priorities together.

Why did she marry a well connected Jewish White man or have a baby by him?

Don't you know the same things that can make your life seem so great are the same things that can break you?

I bet she maried for status and prestige vs. asking herself if this man really and truly loves her. So now he will use that same money and status to make your life miserable and make raising of your child hell.

nobody judged in 9:29 if you read carefully. When you're an artist, criticize comes with the package.

I think she should fight to get her child back but that takes sacrificing.

1. He's BLACK, well half black. Google the Bronfman's. Daddy's a white billionaire, mom is African American and very Philanthropic to the Black Community.

2. She had a baby by him/PLANNED to marry him so that she could gain CITIZENSHIP.

I read that she pretty much abandoned him was she dropped that load and went on to do other shit. Now wants to be a mom since her career is ass and the fam ain't having it.

That was dumb on her part, I thought that they were married. If she abandoned the baby for a career, that's on her...stupid move.

TruthBeTold said...

He was the fiance and not the husband?

Usually fiances don't get the baby , more to it than what we have here

Whats really stupid is her airing this personal business on Twitter looking like a dumb azz that she has already proven to be! She abandoned her child initially and if she is serious about gaining custody stay off social media! FUK HER I don't like her trife azz ways!

Tippie Toes said...

@11:13
She was probably druggin while carrying the child MIA is WILD and I haven't seen any behavior from her that seems responsible!

IMO...That is one ugly looking woman.

Just common sense statement: MIA if you don't want to come off as unstable, crazy, unfit and all of those other bad things you probably shouldn't be on twitter ranting and raving about your ex and his family. Not saying that he is this great guy, but now that you have let them know what your take on the matter is they are going to counter everything that you say. And they will be having you followed and watched in order to prove there point. Shut up get an attorney and start taking some type of parenting classes cause I'm sure this guy is going to be ready when it's time to go to court.

Heard this chick is a piece of work. Another one of those delusional ass "artists" who believe they're a musical fuckin' genius *rolls eyes*

she abandoned that baby when she thought she'd be famous, and now that her "career" has tanked, she looking for some child support

^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Somehow, I don't think her throwing up her two middle fingers to the crowd, while she was performing with Madonna, helped her situation.

It's one thing to have Madonna do something like this (she'd get passes) and another when a person of color does this.

I wish this annoying ass, no-rapping, no-singing bitch would go back to Sri Lanka.

Stop with the racial talk, her husband is half-black and half-white. his mother is a black woman who married a man that comes from a white dynasty.

Hope she can work out her issues, we need her back, she was by far one of the most talented rappers out, she was different and innovative. She's dope. Why is it that real talent always have the most problems?

So when Bronfman got with MIA he was unaware that touring is part of the job??? That they got together when his career was stalled/ailing? That no-one would actually know who Bronfman was if it wasn't for MIA? That Bronfman encorouged MIA to continue with her career? C'mon people , try a little harder...she got involved with a lying cheating s-wipe with a sense of entitlement...that was her only mistake.

Someone doesn't want to pay alimony...You don't get that rich being nice.

So flipping America the bird didn't help? Do some research on the Bronfman clan. Bootleggers, gun smugglers, murderers, ADL supporters...??? I guess that is a wonderful contribution to American culture...Oh and lets not forget the battered wives, children and dead pedestrians, motorists and alcoholics from drinking Seagram products. Yeah nice one, model citizens.
