Ceaser Emanuel is addressing child abuse allegations made against him. The allegations were made by the mother of his 17-year-old daughter, Cheyenne.
Cheyenne accused Ceaser of physically abusing her earlier this year. Madame Noire reported earlier this year. She blasted her dad in an Instagram live. She claimed Ceaser “stomped her out” and “put hands” and “feet” on her. Take a look at a screen-grab captured by The Shade Room:
Cheyenne’s mom Crystal chimed in. She claims the police ignored her daughter’s allegations. She also claims Cheyenne was “forced” to leave her father’s house with only the clothes she had in her back. She claims her dad would go months without speaking to her and only reconnected for a storyline for Blank Ink.
In an exclusive interview with The Jasmine Brand, Ceaser said,
“I’m not [going to] lie, this is difficult. It’s not a press conference with a kid from the hood. It’s just, something that we don’t really do. When you have to take these measures, it’s a lot for me. I don’t like this right now but I know that it’s necessary for me to sit here and clear my name.”
He spoke on not “creating drama” for TV. He said,
“I want to let everybody know, this ain’t no story. I’m not gonna sit here and put myself through this type of drama for a storyline – especially not with my daughter’s mother or my child. People have to understand… this is draining to me. For me to have to keep defending myself – and I’m not defending myself in no courtroom or nothing – I’m defending myself over social media. People have to understand, certain times, out of envy and hate, people will do certain things and convince other people to go along with it.” He continued,
“I’ve been dealing with this for years now. It’s hard when you have family members that just want to destroy you, and they lurk on everything that you try to do, and to some capacity, convince people that really, really, love you, that basically, I ain’t s***. I will always, always, always defend my child. But these heinous accusations, I gotta show people that this s*** is a lie. This ain’t happen.” He went on to say,
“The reason why I had the press conference is to put out the facts, not nobody sitting there going off their mouth, going off their emotions, but the hard facts. Not from my mouth, but other people who witnessed the situation, who’s been there, who understand ‘Yo, this guy didn’t nothing.'” He ended with,
“This is what I want people to know – I ain’t do anything. All I’ve ever been was a good father. Why, when she’s 17, why she decided to go off the hinge. That narrative has been put out there by my daughter’s mother. People who watch the show have watched years and years of her sitting there trying to manipulate a situation, trying to get back with me… Season 2, she put me on child support and got me arrested. People don’t understand the stuff I have done. For her, for anybody sitting here [saying] I’m beating up on my child, all I want to say is this s*** ain’t true, and if it was, I wouldn’t be having a TV show or sit here with a press conference trying to let people know I ain’t do nothing.”
TMZ reported Ceaser is suing Crystal over the claims.
Hopefully, they can work everything out!
