Wiz Khalifa’s Custody Battle May Get Ugly

Rapper Wiz Khalifa and ex Amber Rose are in a custody battle over their 1-year-old son that is starting to get nasty. According to documents obtained by TMZ, Wiz is claims that Amber isn’t a very good mother and that he should have more custody of their son. Wiz claims that Amber stays out at night, leaving their son with relatives and staff members and that she is barely around to parent due to her party lifestyle. Another disturbing claim is that Amber allows her dog to eat feces and then lick their son’s face.

According to TMZ, Khalifa has not yet filed family court documents to change custody, but that he is building his case and that a motion to modify custody is coming soon.

If Amber Rose is looking to put up a fight in family court then she is not doing herself any favors by perpetuating her public feud with Kylie Jenner. Rose is reportedly upset with Kylie for dating stealing rapper “Tyga” from Rose’s friend, Blac Chyna, calling Kylie a “whore” and implying that her sister Khloe Kardashian’s father was really O.J. Simpson and not Robert Kardashian. Reported by New York Daily News.

If Wiz does decide to file a motion to modify child custody then the spotlight of the family court system will be on Amber. The family court judge is going to want to know if there is any truth to Wiz’s allegations. Amber’s Facebook posts, Twitter posts, text messages and emails can all be considered by the judge. Wiz may also bring in witnesses to testify as to Amber’s behavior and parenting history. Knowing that a child custody motion may be coming, Amber would be well advised to maintain a low profile and, if the allegations have any truth, start stepping up as a parent.

“I always advise my clients involved in a custody battle to assume that everything they say or do will eventually end up in front of a judge,” says San Diego child custody lawyer, John Griffith.

Child custody battles are the most difficult part of the area of family law. Instead of working together as parents to raise a child, a child custody battle creates adversity between the parents with each parent trying to gain the edge in court. This adversity often results in exaggerated claims, false allegations, and overall nasty behavior. This is never good for the children. A mediated or negotiated co-parenting plan is always the best way to handle a parental split.
