Philando Castille

Philando Castile was shot to death by a trigger-happy former St. Anthony police officer during a traffic stop last year. The city settled a wrongful death lawsuit with his mother, Valerie Castile, for $3 million.

Now his parents are battling over the millions.

Philando’s father, Phelix H. Frazier Sr., who sired him 32 years ago and helped raise him to be a man, now wants his share of the $3 million settlement.

A Hennepin County judge says she will likely approve Valerie Castile’s request for the entire amount — less attorney’s fees — because her son’s father was “not present” and “made no claims to the money.”

But Frazier says that’s a lie.

Frazier told the Star Tribune he was “totally blindsided by (Valerie’s) lack of compassion.” He said he feared she would distribute the cash to family members and leave him penniless.

“It was not just Valerie’s loss,” he wrote from a Greenville penitentiary, adding he felt he deserved at least $500,000.

“On some level I believe I will miss Philando (more) than most because of what we ‘were not’ able to do together,” he wrote.

District Judge Susan Robiner on Wednesday said that while she was “impressed” with Frazier’s objections, that he did not qualify for any of the funds.

According to the NY Daily News, Frazier is currently serving a life sentence for a heroin trafficking ring and running a criminal enterprise.

The judge also said Philando’s half sister, Allysza Castile, did not deserve any of the money because her lifestyle that is “not conducive to her receipt of a large sum of money at this time.”

According to the Star Tribune, Allysza said she trusted her mother, before breaking down in tears.

“They’ve always taken care of me,” she told the judge. “I don’t feel I need anything distributed to me.”

    oh, to try and quantify a Black life.

    so sad for the family. even with this “settlement” there is still an absence of true justice.

    What the hell is a lifer gonna do with a half million dollars???

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!!!

  • i troll it like i see it

    So if he was such a loving father, why are they dismissing him? I think HE is the one that’s lying. If he had done right by them they probably would have no issues helping him out.

  • Quitedeliteful

    If he really cared about his son and family he should have stayed his black arse out of jail…

  • MookieFly

    Sounds like he tryna become a kingpin in jail. If he wins some money, it will be no more soap drops for him.

  • Jen_no_juice

    Thank you!

    And BINGO was his name-O!

  • Dowoop

    This ninja does not deserve a penny. Some people I tell ya. We didnt hear peep about a father until money came into play.

    “It was not just Valerie’s loss,” he wrote from a Greenville penitentiary , adding he felt he deserved at least $500,000.

    How much is $500,000 divided by 12 packages of ramen noodles?

  • freelancepimp .

    This is kind of messy. If he didn’t have any kids then who gets the money cause he was grown man. Now if he lived with his mother and and was a contributor to the household then I think the household would get the money because the household was disturbed by his death. Daddy was in jail and was not an immediate party to Philandro so he deserves nothing IMO Just like if Philandro was married with wife and kids the mother wouldn’t have gotten anything just because she was he mother.

    “On some level I believe I will miss Philando (more) than most because of what we ‘were not’ able to do together,” he wrote. He’s garbage

  • mzwhang90210

    This case was/still is so sad. That video, I tried watching it but couldn’t.
    NO amount of $$ can excuse what that “officer” did to that man. And after they subtract attorny’s fees and taxes, 3 mil won’t be 3 mil. This dude wants $500,000. Dude sit down,..

    The dad is jailed from drugs and the cop who murdered his son is scott free … go figure

    Phelix H. Frazier Sr
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^
    He sounds like he dismissed his own damn self. Know what Phelix Frazier Sr indicates? That there is a JUNIOR of his out in the world. That he gave his name too. Yet Philando was walking around here with his MAMA NAME. Fukk Phelix.

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOLLOLLOL!!!!!!

  • hotntot95

    He chose to go to jail instead of raising his son…

  • Quitedeliteful

    Maybe I misunderstood but I thought the judge said she couldn’t have a share based on her lifestyle or something….I figured maybe she was on drugs or something …

  • Please Stop The Madness

    How much is Diamond and her daughter receiving? Who had to WITNESS Philando getting shot? I vote that they Give the cut that PHELIX mark ass wants/feels entiteld to…to HER.

  • Please Stop The Madness

    Yes. But she said it was okay sounds like

    “According to the Star Tribune, Allysza said she trusted her mother, before breaking down in tears.

    “They’ve always taken care of me,” she told the judge. “I don’t feel I need anything distributed to me.”

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!!

  • Quitedeliteful

    Yep… She’s better off not fighting to get a cut because her mother will see that she’s alright…

  • Guess Who

    SMH. They both lost a son and know really going to WASTE money by hiring a lawyer to revisit who gets what. REALLY? The father needs to let this shyt go. HE messed up his life and chose to go to prison. Be happy with the couple of hundred put on your books per month and STFU.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    This is like those fathers who have kids and are not involved with their lives growing up… but once their son signs some big pro football or basketball contract, they wanna come around to “re-connect” with their son.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    He should have married her. She was the girlfriend, not the wife, so she has no legal standing in this.. You’re not entitled to anything if your “boyfriend” dies.

  • KarmaBackAround

    Bihhh u n jail FOR LIFE..that 500 racks can’t do SHYT for u..definitely wont bring ur son back and yalls lost time including the time u was locked up while he was alive..

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Normally, I’d agree, but not in a case like this.
    Castile is Frazier’s youngest child, and moved with his mother from St. Louis to Minnesota when he was a child. He didn’t raise Philando, and it doesn’t seem they had much of a relationship.

  • hotntot95

    WTF kind of mess is this. That money needs to go to his child and invested in her education and future. Not his mother or Jailbird father.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    He’s a convicted felon. He shouldn’t be entitled to any part of the settlement.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    That little girl was his girlfriend’s child . Maybe he was a “father figure” to the child, but that little girl was not his.

  • Please Stop The Madness

    I don’t think that the little girl is his. But she an the girl who is termed “just a gf” are scarred for life from that incident

  • Please Stop The Madness

    I disagree in this case. Diamond has been harassed by the police department trying to get Facebook to rifle through her account. As a result of him dying at their hands. Bc she filmed it. She deserves something

  • Scromes1212

    This one is tricky. He may have been in his sons life on some level and his son probably loved his dad. I think it’s more a case where the judge wants the money to be distributed responsibly.

  • Scromes1212

    They should file a separate case against the city.

  • Scromes1212

    Exactly.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I do agree to an extent. I think the mother should hook Diamond up with some money, since her videotaping it is what brought the case into the public eye… and that made it easier to get the city to settle the case. If mama feels like doing that out of the goodness of her heart, then that would be nice.

  • nick c

    As long as his Parental Rights isn’t terminated its fair game.

  • nick c

    If he still has his Parental Rights he is 100% entitled to the money. They go after dudes for all time for back child support as soon as they step out the gatehouse so he is within his rights to request a portion of the settlement. He could have been communicating with his son via, mail, phone or visits who knows. If the trial judge refuse appeal!!! He most likely win there anyway. If all else fails drain all the money in legal fees until they settle.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    The sickness of money and family!!!

  • eBay

    Diamond has retained a lawyer but hasn’t filed a suit yet. She was waiting for his mother to settle.

  • teka nicole

    The fact that they have different last names, leads me to believe he didn’t even legitimize him. He is a Sr. so that means he has a Jr. that he DID legitimize SPEAKS VOLUMES!!!! Why does he feel he’s owed anything at all? Reminds me of the Rikki Lake show back in the day When Shaq was really big in basketball his father and paternal grandmother went on that show talking about we’re family lol then he had the nerve to bring his little boy on there with him saying he wants to meet his big brother. sir where were you when Shaq was growing up? thought he was gonna get paid just because he is the father. Shaq refused to even respond. I wonder if they ever reconciled

  • freelancepimp .

    She should have her own lawsuite for her and her child. If Philandro’s family was awarded (even in settlement) for his wrongful death, then the mother and her child would be directly impacted by that wrongful death, I would think. His wrongful death was traumatizing to Diamond and her child (nobody would argue against that,) and a life changing event that was forced upon them.

  • freelancepimp .

    Makes sense.

  • IntroSpective

    He’d be a prison star, I’m sure ?

  • teka nicole

    Yes! Just posted something similar.all deadbeat dads should have to watch the success of the kids they screwed over.

    Do we know if he went to jail trying to provide for his son and family the only way he knew how. I don’t think he deserve anything but I would leave it at that.

    If you know Phelix, Jr. I am his mother and I have always worked for fortune 500 companies in the IT department making over $70,000 a year and I still do. Know your facts before commenting. I have no comments about Phelix, Sr. but when you bring my child into it know your facts. If you truly knew my son you would not be on this sight weaving a web of lies. His father’s family were actually the owner of nursing homes in which his father was a doctor and mother a nurse so that is the only drugs they were into. So do a fact check.

  • Egypt Hall

    Sandra when you are ready for the real story behind all of this madness email me and it is all yours to write from Philando’s siblings side. BTW… he was a married man when Philando was conceived and working a regular 9-5 job. People always see one side and then their opinions, but do he deserve any money… HELL NO… if he do then I need my $189,000 in back child support.

  • Egypt Hall

    Please show the receipts for your statements because I can and will produce my pay statements as far back 1990. I raised my children in a drug and alcohol free environment and can proudly say that… His father only had one brother who is deceased and one sister, only one neice… so please tell me what family you are speaking of Charles.

  • The daughter of phelix

    Let me set the record straight so keep your unwanted opinions. he don’t have parental rights over my brother at all. that dad of mine don’t deserve shit and when he exercise his parental rights for the other four children he was “man enough” to sign the birth certificate of. Philando he robbed of that. holler at me I’m the daughter you don’t know my brothers you don’t know my family stop trying to push that stereotype on my brothers. I’m mad as fuck is him because he don’t deserve nothing he deserve every heartbreak heart ache memory of my brother on TV how he seen him just like that. now unwanted opinions or what you think he deserves can shut the fuck up. No need to respond I spoke now go find another story to read.

  • On the radar….

    I don’t think he should be entitled to anything. If the mother wants to give him something then it would be up to her discretion in how much. But he’s serving life, soooo what he gone do with it, get some new orange jumpsuits? Personally, I wouldn’t give 0. And not to be all in the business but as a single mother who did EVERYTHING…. nah. Takes more than just fertilizing the egg. People make bad decisions and expect family to still look out. Damn, money can bring out the ? in people.

    She don’t owe him anything and he is just being a selfish MF . The family is not fighting over money. Her son, her pain and heartbreak.

  • On the radar….

    I did not imply that she owes him anything and I did not imply that the family is fighting over money. I was speaking on him when I said money brings out the ? in people. I understand that she is in pain. Don’t snap at me.

  • Egypt Hall

    He was a married man so how could he legitimize him? His Jr. being legitimized has nothing to do with him being a deplorable a-hole or his lifestyle. He is owed nothing because he invested nothing. He is just a pipe dreamer using rusted pipes.

  • Egypt Hall

    He has no rights if he never did right by him. So you feel as if he deserve something… really. His rights are non-existing like he was in his son’s life. It is these type comments that gave him that selfish outlook to ask for $500,000. smh

    I totally agree, but I believe the girlfriend would have to sue herself for emotional trauma. If I were the Mom’s, I would probably make sure they were taken care of though.

  • teka nicole

    I agree he is entitled to nothing. Not understanding why you replied to me if we agree. I mentioned ligitimization because most men want their son to carry their last name.he did it with his other son!! you can always be declared the bio parent of your child through the courts that’s what legitimize means my brother was at 19. Usually when a father will not claim a child LEGALLY it’s because he wants no responsibility so again. I AGREE WITH YOU

    That would be the fair thing.

  • Renee26

    He still could have taken care of his responsibilities married or not. He could have signed the BC and given his outside children his last name too….he didn’t and he was absent according to all of ya’ll so he deserves nothing but dust and is out of line for even requesting anything.

  • Renee26

    Should have filed side by side because they are making it apparent that they don’t care nothing about the gf and her child…although they witnessed this, taped it (so FACTS couldn’t be disputed) and the little girl was calling him daddy and will be traumatized by this too….they seem triflin to take on that attitude with her IMO

  • The daughter of phelix

    I’m more than sure that was his gf and her daughter from her marriage before dating him. Why lie to many people are.

    You can’t hurt me you don’t know half of the pain and bull shit I seen in this life.

  • The daughter of phelix

    Let’s remember that’s my father his lifestyle effects his children.

  • On the radar….

    You and me both as I’m sure many other people in this life. Not a competition. You can’t get in your feelings with people on blogs. Not everyone even give a damn and that’s the truth but if you reread the majority of the comments strangers are feeling compassion. We don’t know the 100% truth and that’s with any story printed as this. Many of us can relate to a loss that was too soon, too young, unfair and just not right. You made the statement that your family wasn’t fighting over money. I didn’t say you were. So what was truth about that. For all I know you could be a troll. Who goes on and on about something none of us can change. Your focus should be trying to deal with a loss and living because that’s all you can do.

  • Egypt Hall

    First of it is obvious who I am. You are not defending yourself against anyone and I am not to my feelings. I am not hood shyt… I am a professional and has been for years as I stated in a previous comment. So let’s keep comments in perspective.

  • Egypt Hall

    No you did not and if you had comprehended what you read and not assume everyone is in their feelings then we would not be going back and forth. I simply stated she do not owe him nothing because he is a selfish a-hole and do not have nothing better to with his time. I did not snap at you that is not my style… The article made it seem like they are fighting over money and I want to clear that up by stating no one is fighting over money. In my opinion she deserve more than what she is getting. There is no amount of money to replace a human life… period Being the pipe dreamer with rusty pipes he allowed someone to convince him he has rights. I clearly stated her son, her heartbreak, and her pain because he clearly is not going through any pain if he never took the time to get to know him.

  • Egypt Hall

    SMDH… everyone black is not hood and I am definitely not.

  • Egypt Hall

    You are so true. Despite the situation I always told my children he existed, never stopped him from providing actually walked away because of the situation so he was free to do the right thing. As far as the name I never got involved in that, but he should have done right by him. He was an awesome young man and did not deserve what happened.

  • Egypt Hall

    I thought the reference was why my sons and not Philando. He is just ridiculous and missed the opportunity to be in all of his children lives, but Philando was a very beautiful and humble young man and it was really his loss all around.

  • Egypt Hall

    So true, but I can’t speak on their relationship, but it was not due to my opposing it. That is an issue between him and Valerie. Honestly he was doing the right thing by mine until the year he was born and I walked away because he was no longer the person I knew and married. I think that he was dead wrong for changing his mind and asking for any money. His reasoning was just as selfish as he was… If she want to blew it on her family or whatever she choose to do she has that right. This is so embarrassing to his other children.

  • The Realest 514

    This whole situation is a horrible nightmare. As a single mother of a black child, I could never fathom the heart ache of losing my child. All the money in the world won’t bring her son back. God bless the family.
