Kodak Black reacted to a viral story about a 61-year-old Florida man marrying his 18-year-old goddaughter.

Michael Haugabook was criticized on social media for waiting until his goddaughter, Deja, turned 18 before marrying her.
 

Haugabook knew Deja since she was a baby and the couple reportedly dated since 2016.

The story went viral after the wedding photos surfaced on social media. They were married on Sept. 4, 2021 in St. Lucie County, Florida.

Kodak weighed in on the controversy, saying his father also ran off with his goddaughter.

"SMH my daddy did this same sh*t. Left us to start another family with his goddaughter. I was about 9 but I ain't judging nobody tho, to each's own. It could b true love."

Many accused Haugabook of grooming Deja to be his wife despite having a previous relationship with her mother.

Michael and Deja Haugabook have dismissed the criticism as jealousy. Deja claims she is fully grown at 18 and working full-time while caring for the couple's four children.

The children are reportedly from Michael's previous relationships.

Kodak Black has worked hard to improve his public image following his release from prison earlier this year. But the troubled rapper was dealt a setback when he violated the terms of his probation by failing a drug test.

The 24-year-old rapper, born Dieuson Octave in Florida, violated the terms of his supervised release in his federal gun case by failing a drug test, TMZ reports. And now Black is ordered to get treatment.

The rapper, who legally changed his name to Bill K. Kapri in 2018, was sentenced to 46 months behind bars in the gun case in late 2019.

However, he was released from prison by outgoing President Donald Trump when his sentence was commuted back in January.

Kodak was back in a courtroom hearing this week after violating the terms of his supervised release.

According to court records, obtained by TMZ, the judge ordered Kodak to complete a 90-day stint in a residential drug treatment program. TMZ sources say Kodak has already enrolled in the drug treatment program.

Kodak's lawyer, Bradford Cohen, declined repeated requests to comment on his client's latest legal trouble.

Pompano Beach officials hit rapper Kodak Black with a cease & desist for giving away air conditioning units in a housing project.

According to TMZ, the Pompano Beach Housing Authority threatened the rapper for donating the AC units to elderly residents of a housing project.

The shirtless rapper, born Dieuson Octave, was photographed personally delivering the AC units to the elderly and underprivileged residents last month.

He ran afoul of the Housing Authority in July when the agency accused him of entering the property illegally and "causing disturbances" with loud music.

"Your actions have adversely impacted the Property's residents' right to peacefully enjoy the property."

The Housing Authority objected to Kodak helping the residents cool off by installing the room air conditioning units.

However, Kodak's lawyer, Bradford Cohen, denied Kodak filmed a music video on the property. He said it was shameful that they "wish to stop the assistance to the elderly and underprivileged during a heat wave and 2 year pandemic."

Kodak Black probably shouldn't have used a helicopter when paying tribute to the late NBA icon Kobe Bryant.

The rapper angered Kobe's fans when he celebrated his 24th birthday on Instagram by sharing photos of a helicopter wrapped in the Lakers team colors.

His brand new Tesla Model X car is also customized with the team's yellow and purple.

In the caption, Kodak Black wrote: "I'm Ouchea 24 a Day I'm Like KOBE #KtB @kobebryant... #HappyBirthdayKodak Out Now."

Kobe's fans let Kodak know that the helicopter tribute was inappropriate in the comments section. One fan wrote: "The helicopter not sitting right w me."

Another wrote: "The man and his daughter died in one."

And a third user wrote: "I think the helicopter was a little to much."

But some of Kodak's followers defending his tribute.

Instagram user @maximusbuckets wrote: "He honoring him if anything."

Kobe and his daughter, Gianna, 13, died tragically in a fiery helicopter crash in Calabasas, California in January 2020.

Kodak also angered his fans last week when he said he wants President Donald Trump back in the White House.

Rapper Kodak Black trended on Tuesday after saying he wants Donald Trump back in the White House while sending a birthday shout out to the former U.S. president.

Kodak Black was granted clemency by Trump on his last day in office in January. After his sentence was commuted, Kodak thanked Trump and promised to turn his life around.

Trump turned 75 on Monday, June 14, and Kodak was among his supporters wishing him a happy birthday.

Kodak recorded a video in which he wore a MAGA cap that appears to be signed by Trump.

"I would like to see Trump back in office in '24," he said, before sending all his love and support to the billionaire developer.

The rapper also chastised youngn's on the Internet who disapprove of his loyalty: "That just shows that you ain't a good person. You ain't loyal," he said.

Kodak, whose government name is Bill Kapri, received a commutation of his 46-month sentence for falsifying information on federal forms to buy firearms in Florida in 2019.

Kodak Black made headlines when he swore he would donate $1 million to charity if Trump set him free from prison early.

"If The President Them Free Me, I'm Gonna Spend 1 million on Charity within The First Year I'm Out. That's on Everything," he tweeted on Nov. 27, 2020.

However, Kodak deleted the tweet as soon as he got out.

Hide your wives and daughters! Rapper Kodak Black avoided a prison sentence after he plead guilty to raping an underage girl.

A judge handed down a 10-year suspended sentence and 18 months of probation after he plead guilty to assault and battery charges.

The "Zeze" rap star originally faced a felony count for first-degree criminal sexual conduct relating to an incident in a South Carolina hotel with a teenage girl back in 2016.

Kodak was accused of pushing the minor child into a wall and onto a bed, before biting her breast and neck.

Kodak denied the allegations at the time, but he has since acknowledged his rapey behavior, after spending 2 years in prison on unrelated charges.

During his court hearing, Kodak confessed to biting the female, and issued an apology.

In exchange, he was handed a 10-year suspended sentence and placed on 18 months of supervised state release, allowing him to victimize other gullible females.

Thanks to his high-power attorney, Kodak won't have to wear an ankle bracelet, but he must keep his appointments with a probation officer. He is also prohibited from drinking or doing drugs, and he cannot possess any guns, according to TMZ.

The deal is good news for the Florida-based rapper, who was handed a get-out-of-prison card when his weapons charges were commuted by former U.S. President Donald Trump in January.

Kodak has since dedicated himself to giving back to the community while he works to get his rap career back on track.

Kodak Black wasted no time knocking up his fiancee, Mellow Rackz, following his release from prison.

The ex-con, who was pardoned by former President Donald Trump in January, announced his surprise engagement on Instagram last month.

On Thursday, the troubled rapper announced baby names on social media, leading fans to believe he is an expectant father.

In a video, Black says his baby mama (Rackz) doesn't agree with the baby names he chose. In the background, Rackz is heard saying the baby names are ugly.

Kodak says, "she don't like the name for prince…" to which responds, "Prince no."

19-year-old Rackz previously bragged on Instagram that she is a self-made millionaire.

Although she is reportedly a rapper, there are no YouTube videos of Rackz's music, nor does she have any singles on Spotify or any other streaming service.

If the baby rumor is true, Rackz is financially set for the next 18 years -- as long as Black stays out of prison so he can support his family.

Sorry, ladies. Kodak Black has been taken off the market by a fellow "rapper" named Mellow Rackz.

The ex-con, who was recently released from prison, announced his surprise engagement on Instagram.

According to a social media post, Kodak arranged for a plane to fly by her home with the message "Might as well marry me Melody. I love u" on the back.

A video shared by Rackz on social media showed the plane, Kodak holding a box containing a giant diamond ring, and then Mellow wearing the ring as she hugged her husband-to-be.

The 19-year-old also confirmed she was engaged by sharing a picture of herself and Black, government name Bill Kapri, swapping spit on Instagram. She captioned the image: "Mrs. Kapri. I said yes."

Although she is reportedly a rapper, there are no YouTube videos of her music, nor does she have any singles on Spotify or any other streaming service.

Her Instagram account is stocked with photos of her showing off jewelry and handbags with no source of steady income.

In one typo-filled post, she wrote: "Before you speak on me that I'm self-made been touched ms and I purchased all my jewellery and I purchased all jewellery, 230k on the patek, 80k on my AP, 100k on my neck [sic]."

She continued: "I own three cars, I'm 19 years old. I don't need nobody for s**t. You got a problem, talk to god abut it."

The engagement news comes as a shock to fans. Just last week he was wooing rapper JT of City Girlz.

He allegedly bought JT an $80,000 Patek wristwatch and a room full of handbags and roses on Valentine's Day.

Kodak Black is a free man after former President Donald Trump commuted his 46-month sentence to time served on Jan. 20.

Rappers Lil Wayne and Kodak Black were granted pardons by Trump on his last day in office.

Black, government name Bill Kapri, received a commutation of his 46-month sentence for falsifying information on federal forms to buy firearms in 2019.

Black made headlines last year when he tweeted that he would donate $1 million to charity if Trump released him from prison early.

"If The President Them Free Me, I'm Gonna Spend 1 million on Charity within The First Year I'm Out. That's on Everything," he tweeted on Nov. 27, 2020.

Apparently, "everything" meant nothing to Kodak. He quietly deleted the tweet within hours of his release from an Illinois prison on Jan. 20.

When social media users called Kodak out for deleting the tweet, his lawyer, Bradford Cohen, said told TMZ the tweet wasn't a good idea to begin with.

"A statement promising something for something in exchange is not appropriate and although Kodak has always given to charity his whole career and will continue to [give to] charity, not in exchange for anything. Some think this is a story. It isn't."

He called out writers who criticized Kodak for going back on his promise: "Instead of harping on a young black man and how much charity he does, why don't we take a look at the amount of charity the writers of these articles do?"

Cohen also noted that Kodak donated $150,000 to charity in the the 5 days since he's been out of prison.

"Last week, Kodak pledged $100k to setting up a scholarship fund in the name of Meadow Pollack. The week before he donated $50k to barstool fund to help small businesses. That's $150k and he's been out 5 days."

Kodak Black was released from a federal prison in Illinois after being pardoned by former President Donald Trump on his last day in office.

Black tweeted his thanks to Trump on Wednesday: "I Want To Thank The President @RealDonaldTrump For His Commitment To Justice Reform And Shortening My Sentence. I Also Want To Thank Everyone For Their Support And Love. It Means More Than You Will Ever Know. I Want To Continue Giving Back, Learning And Growing. @DanScavino."

But according to reports, prosecutors in South Carolina are preparing to pursue the rapper on a felony charge of first-degree criminal sexual conduct.

Ed Clements, the 12th Circuit Solicitor in Florence County, tells TMZ that he filed a retainer against the rapper and plans to "aggressively" pursue Black, whose legal name is Bill Kapri.

Trump commuted Black's 46-month sentence for making a false statement on a federal document to purchase a gun in Florida. Convicted felons can't purchase firearms, and pardons for a federal crime have no impact on state cases.

Prosecutors in S.C. claim Black forced himself on an 18-year-old girl in a hotel room after a Feb. 2016 concert, allegedly raping her and biting her neck and right breast, according to legal docs obtained by TMZ.

Black's attorney in S.C., Beattie Ashmore, tells TMZ, "Aggressively prosecute? It's been four years. That speaks volumes. Kodak was on bond and on tour for two years before his federal case even began. Ed's a very fine and experienced prosecutor and I look forward to once again speaking with him about this case. It's been awhile."

Black faces up to 30 years in state prison, if convicted.
