Fivio Foreign hopped on the latest internet craze this weekend: the money challenge. The idea is to simply spell out certain phrases or words using cash, and then post a photo of it to social media. But the Brooklyn Drill rapper got a rude awakening when he decided to spell the phrase “FUCC CHILD SUPPORT” on the wood floor of his high rise apartment.
He also wrote in the caption, “Good fathers shuddnt have to be on child support,” accented by a middle finger emoji. After both The Shade Room and Akademiks shared Fivio’s post, he was promptly dragged for the sentiment.
Comments ranged from “The courts gonna have a field day with this picture when he miss a payment” and “Good try man but no we are not going to put up with this one. Take responsibility for your actions and good night” to “If you’re truly a good father, you wouldn’t be complaining about child support” and “Imagine proudly proclaiming that you don’t want to take care of your children.”
Fivio Foreign has two daughters with a woman named Jasmine, but their relationship has been wrought with controversy. In October 2020, Fivio was arrested for allegedly assaulting then-pregnant Jasmine, causing bodily injury. Police took Fivio into custody at his residence in The Alexander, a luxury high-rise on River Road, and he remained in custody until he was able to go to court.
Jasmine quickly defended the father of her children, writing in a since-deleted Instagram post, “Thank you so much for your kind words but I’d like to clarify a few things. I did not call the police on Fivio, I did not press charges and I do not want the father of my children in jail.”
Although Jasmine acknowledged an altercation did take place, she insisted it was her neighbors who called the police. “A situation happened in our home and a nosy neighbor called the police,” she claimed at the time. “The police who pressed charges and in time Fivi will be relieved of all charges. Thank you for respecting our privacy at this time.”
Fivio has been using putting his money and fame to good use though. Around the same time, he launched the non-profit organization Foreignside Foundation, which he said is “geared towards providing beneficial resources and programs for at-risk youth, the homeless, current & former gang-affiliated individuals, incarcerated individuals.”
