Alexis Adams, the mother of American rapper, Flo Rida‘s 6-year-old son, Zohar Paxton, has filed a lawsuit against the singer, after their son fell from a window of five stories of their Jersey City building earlier this month, leaving him seriously injured.
Alexis claims building management was negligent and careless and did not install size guards on windows, causing her son (Zohar) to fall out onto the pavement below, according to court documents filed by Steven P. Haddad, of the Haddad law firm.
Zohar, who was diagnosed with autism and a brain condition, suffered a shattered pelvis, left metatarsal fractures, a Grade 3 liver laceration, internal bleeding, and collapsed lungs.
The rapper’s son remained in intensive care as of Wednesday, March 29, Haddad tells Daily Voice.
The lawsuit was filed Monday, March 27 in Hudson County Superior Court. Adams is seeking unspecified compensation to pay for the treatment of his injuries.
Defendants include Pitch Perfect 74, LLC, Goldberg Management, Carlos Machado, various John and Jane Does, a construction company, a window installation company, and more.
“As a single mom to a special needs child, this feels like a nightmare,” Adams said. “My heart is broken into a million pieces. It is devastating to see my child go through such pain and trauma knowing that this could’ve been avoided.”
TheNewsGuru.com (TNG) reports that Alexis told DailyMail.com that Flo Rida, whose real name is Tramar Lacel Dillard, initially denied that 19-month-old Zohar Paxton was his son.
She said he turned his back on the baby when she brought him to a medical center for a paternity test. A DNA test revealed a 99.9 percent match that Flo Rida was the child’s father.
Zohar has hydrocephalus, a neurological condition that causes an abnormal accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid within cavities in the brain.
“Since birth, Zohar has had numerous doctors’ appointments, tests and ultrasounds for the incurable condition. Last month, he underwent brain surgery, but there was no visit or phone call from his father,” Alexis said.
