It was reported on Monday that rap artist Kid Cudi had given up on the custody battle with his baby mother in regards to their daughter, Vada Mescudi. His baby moms claimed that Cudi has a history of violence and drug use and cited those as her reasons for wanting to have full custody of Vada. But Cudi's attorney vehemently denies those claims and issued a statement in a letter pertaining to the matter.
"The statement that Kid Cudi gave up full custody due to a history of violence and drug addiction is simply false. The truth is that in August 2012, Kid Cudi and his daughter's mother jointly reached an amicable agreement on the issues of legal custody and parenting time. While Kid Cudi's lawyer, Lauren Blair of the Chicago-based law firm, Pedersen & Houpt, will not comment on the details of the parties' custody and parenting agreement, which are private, she did state that the final custody judgment in Kid Cudi's case expressly acknowledges that "both parents are fit and proper persons to have custody of their child."
The letter further read that Cudi has done his absolute best to be present in his daughter's life.
"Kid Cudi was also never proven to be an 'absentee dad' or a deadbeat dad who didn't want to be involved in his child's life or tried to shirk his parental obligations. The court formally acknowledged that Kid Cudi had, since his daughter's birth, 'attempted to establish a relationship with the child and visit with the child when not on tour, or when he is in Chicago or in the state of Ohio where both parties are originally from.'"
"The court also recognized that Kid Cudi had voluntary provided financial support, including child support, rent and other monthly payments, for his daughter since her birth until the time that a child support order was entered as part of the normal course of the case."
