Ashanti dismissed rumors that she and rapper Flo Rida are in a longterm relationship.

"Let the people know Ashanti is not with Flo Rida," she told The Breakfast Club. "Be clear! That's my brother. Me and Flo are super cool... We've been going to each other's birthday parties for like, ten years. So, I don't know why it's like, such a surprise."

She continued:

"You know what it is. I got a group of girls I like to vacay with in my family. Flo got his crew in his family. We've been going to each other's birthday parties for like 10 years. So, I don't know why it's such a surprise now... No, first of all it's [the vacations] are not always together. But, it's just he's a good vibe and our teams are good together. He just likes to have fun with family and celebrate. I promise you, it has never been anything remotely close to that [a romantic relationship]."

The R&B singer is catching heat online for dating the deadbeat rapper, real name Tramar Dillard, who fathered at least four children with as many women.

The 41-year-old "Foolish" singer doesn't acknowledge questions about Zohar or any of the "My House" rapper's children on social media.

Flo Rida refuses to see his 5-year-old disabled son, Zohar Dillard, who lives in New York City with his mom Alexis Adams.

Flo Rida saw Zohar once in 2017 when he showed up to provide a DNA sample for a court-order paternity test.

Zohar was kicked out of a private school in NYC for unpaid tuition of $80,000. Adams, who receives temporary child support from Flo Rida, is forced to pay tuition and medical expenses out of her own pocket.

Adams has been battling Dillard in family court for 5 years now.

Flo Rida's 3-year-old son Zohar Dillard was kicked out of a private school in NYC for unpaid tuition around $80,000.

According to a source, the rapper has not paid Zohar's school tuition since last year, resulting in a default balance to the school that specializes in children with special needs.

Zohar was born with an incurable brain condition and underwent brain surgery to relieve fluid pressure on his brain.

Flo Rida, whose real name is Tramar Dillard, appeared in court via closed circuit TV in 2018 and agreed to grant full custody of Zohar to Alexis Adams.

"Mr. Dillard will consent to Ms. Adams having custody of the minor child," Flo Rida's lawyer Howard Felcher said at the time.

Since then, a Manhattan judge has ordered Flo Rida to pay Alexis $9,000 a month in temporary child custody payments.

The coronavirus pandemic caused a backlog of family court cases in New York City, but an emergency order has been filed in court to force Flo Rida to show cause why he ignored a previous court order pay Zohar’s school tuition plus medical bills.

Flo Rida is teaming up with his doctor to launch a $1.5 million mobile Covid-19 testing center in his native Sunshine State. But he's behind on his son's private school tuition in New York City.

According to TMZ.com, the rapper, alongside his medic and business partner, Dr. George Tabi have launched a new $1.5 million healthcare enterprise called the Asktabs Mobile Wellness Center - which will aim to test up to 1,500 patients per day.

Asktabs' 14-strong staff had its first round of tests last week for workers at food firm MetroWrapz in Miami, Florida last week when 30 employees were tested.

The gossip site report testing at the mobile site is available for anyone, but is mainly providing testing for businesses employees so they can return to work.

But the "Low" hitmaker, real name Tramar Lacel Dillard, still owes $60,000 for his 3-year-old son, Zohar's private school tuition.

The private school forwarded the bills to Zohar's mother, Alexis Adams, for unpaid tuition dating back to fall 2019. The school also sent bills to Flo Rida's attorneys with no response.

As part of a court order, Flo Rida, 40, is responsible for his son's medical and eduction bills.

Due to the coronavirus, schools are closed in NYC but Zohar participates in virtual classes via Zoom.

Flo Rida's new Covid-19 project is great, but paying for his son's education is just as important, particularly since Zohar is a special needs child.

Maybe TMZ should ask Flo Rida why he continues to ignore his responsibilities to his son.
