Bow Wow and his biological father Alfonso Moss, have a very distant relationship as his father was not around that much for his upbringing. Bow Wow has been recently accused by the sister of his baby mother of being a "deadbeat dad", and his father caught wind of this and has recently reached out to him in a public letter about the situation. He explained to Bow Wow that alcoholism runs in their family, along with being a "deadbeat dad" and he warned him to be careful of this. Alfonso also asked him if he could be so kind as to stop "dragging his name through the mud" in the eyes of the public.
Check out this excerpt from Alfonso Moss' letter to Bow Wow:
"We had a good bonding moment. So, when you called me last year, I thought we were having a private conversation only to see the video on Vibe.com of you asking me "are you clean," like I'm some kind of junkie or something. I am NOT a junkie, but I am an alcoholic.
"I am concerned and worried about you. I am not sure if you know this or not, but Alcoholism runs on both sides of your family. Both of your grandfathers and me have struggled with the disease. Please be careful and be mindful so that you will not succumb to this disease that is in your genes.
"Shad, I never asked you for anything, but I am asking for one thing now. Can you please stop throwing me under the bus and talking bad about me?
"I may be an alcoholic, but I never physically abused you. Keyshia Cole tried to help her Mother. Tyler Perry takes care of his family financially and he was sexually abused by some of them. All I am asking is that you stop dragging my name in the mud."
