Monica sat down to talk with Jermaine Dupri about her relationship and child support.
She explained on how she keeps things civil between her and her child’s father Rocko without having to drag him to court to force him to support their two kids:
“People always ask me, “How do you make a blended family work?” It is what you make it. The first order of business as parents is we gotta respect one another…. I don’t believe in the court system. I’m not steppin’ in no court house, I’m not callin’ them people…Now let me explain. This is my thing. I’m sure every situation may require something different, but for me, I feel like a real man will be man enough to assess the needs of his child, and make sure that it happens. I don’t need to call you and I don’t need to call the people for you.
Since I feel that way, I’ve never had any discrepancies with the father of my two oldest children at all, period, point, blank. When it’s time for it to get done, he can access the needs, come in and see what they need and it gets done. Let me pause it, there is still the type… because I have girlfriends… that deal with the type of man that’s just simply selfish… Come back from Fifths with the bags and ask, “How was your day?”
