Lil Nas X's father rushed to his defense after a viral video showed his drug addict mom strung out on a street corner in Atlanta.

LNX has a close relationship with his dad, Robert Stafford, but he and his mother remain distant.

Earlier this week, a video surfaced showing his mother begging for money and food on a street corner.

Gossipmongers called out LNX for supporting his father and sister while disregarding his strung out mother.

According to bloggers, LNX's mother kicked him out of her home when he was 9. He went to live with his father, who tried to provide a stable home for the apparently promiscuous youngster.

On Thursday, Stafford took to social media to set the story straight.

The aspiring gospel singer shared a photo of himself posing with LNX and his mother. Stafford called the one-hit rapper the "greatest kid a parent can be BLESSED with."

"Despite what people say @lilnasx is the greatest kid a parent can be BLESSED with. Although his mom is in a struggle with an addiction she's STILL a QUEEN and he goes through great lengths to make sure we're taking care of [sic]. Those who have family members and friends dealing with addiction understands that there ain't enough money you can throw at this situation to make it right. I dont usually address personal issues publicly but felt like this need to be. Please join us in keeping her in your PRAYERS. And to those out there trying to create a false story you wont prosper. #controlthenarrative."

Lil Nas X spoke out about rumors that DMX's death was a blood sacrifice because he died on LNX's birthday.

DMX died on April 9, and coincidentally, LNX was born on April 9, 1999. That was too many 9s for some people who follow numerology.

One conspiracy theorist tweeted: "DMX was a sacrifice as he died on Lil Nas X bday. No such thing as chance."

Lil Nas X retweeted the post and wrote, "it genuinely scares me knowing how crazy you n****s are."

LNX was already upset about tweets calling for his death before DMX passed away on his birthday.

After DMX died, Sada Baby wished death on LNX by tweeting, "Lord we said Nas X, not DMX."

After some backlash, Sada Baby clarified that he wasn't really wishing death on Lil Nas X, he was annoyed over the controversy surrounding LNX's recent Lucifer-themed music video and "Satan Shoes."

Charles was accused of sexting minors and soliciting nudes from them. In his apology he confessed to sending inappropriate messages to boys.

He suggested they lied about their ages.

"As I did more research on this topic and self-reflected, I realized that the receipts and the screenshots and the specific details of the interaction don't matter, because I f**ked up and I need to take accountability for my actions and apologize to the people who were affected by them."

Charles is the second social media star to be accused of misconduct with children recently.

Lil Nas X lashed out at Nike for blocking his bag after a judge issued a restraining order banning sales of his "Satan shoes" on Monday.

The judge issued the order against sneaker design company MSCHF Product Studio after Nike filed a lawsuit blocking the sale and distribution.

The Air Max 97 sneakers sold out in less than a minute following the launch on Monday. MSCHF claimed the sneakers contain one drop of human blood in the soles.

The one-hit rapper tried to circumvent the restraining order by giving away the sneakers for free on social media.

He took to Twitter to inform his followers that he couldn't even give away the sneakers for free.

"sorry guys i'm legally not allowed to give the 666th pair away anymore because of the crying nerds on the internet," he wrote.

"I haven't been upset until today, i feel like it's f***ed up they have so much power they can get shoes cancelled. freedom of expression gone out the window. but that's gonna change soon."

A judge has blocked Lil Nas X's "Satan Shoes" from shipping out to customers. It isn't clear if the few sneaker resellers who bought the shoes will get refunds.

A federal judge blocked MSCHF from shipping out the shoes after Nike filled a lawsuit on Monday, March 29.

According to reports, the Air Max 97 sneakers contained one drop of human blood in the soles.

Parents were furious that Lil Nas X exposed their children to devil worshipping. There is even talk of canceling the one-hit rapper.

In a response to the lawsuit, MSCHF bosses told the court the sneakers are "individually-numbered works of art that were sold to collectors for $1,018 each."

Nike's legal team questioned the marketing of the product. The lawyers said fans believed the brand was part of the marketing scheme

Nike's lawyers responded, "There's no statements that Nike is affiliated."

Lil Nas X is still feeling the backlash from angry fans who believe they were duped.

The "Old Town Road" rapper -- who came out as openly homosexual in 2019 -- said his new music is "who I am and what I stand for"

In a day in the life video with Vogue, he said, "I'm writing about my actual life and things that I’m actually going through. This album will give people a greater sense of who I am and what I stand for."

Rapper Lil Nas X sparked controversy in the religious community with his new video "Montero (Call Me By My Name)."

The Queens admitted they were wrong to co-sign LNX as a role model for their children.

The 21-year-old rapper came under fire for appearing to worship the devil in his music video. In one scene, Lil Nas X kisses the devil and gives Lucifer a lap dance.

The Queens looked puzzled and befuddled. You could almost hear them asking, how could we have been so wrong?

"It's a lot for the kids that are watching," said host Claudia Jordan.

Co-host Syleena Johnson was the most conflicted of the Queens. She straddled the line between expressing support for the LGBT+ community and condemning the Satanic message in LNX's music video.

"Who are the people that are advising him?" Johnson asked. Who is over there saying this is good?"

According to Johnson, Lil Nas X's advisors could have given him better guidance and rejected his anti-religious symbolism.

"Black folk don't play when it come to the Lord," said actress Vivica A. Fox.

"I think that he just went too far," said co-host LisaRaye McCoy, whose granddaughter is a huge LNX fan.

"...[H]e's an artist and he just wanted that shock value, which is what he fed into," she said.

"I don't want my grandbaby seeing that at all now," she said. "I'm like no, and I'm afraid that when she goes to [play] his 'Old Town Road' video, that that one is gon' play next..."

Nike says the bloody Air Max 97 sneakers released by rapper Lil Nas X and MSCHF were not authorized for sale.

Lil Nas X and MSCHF launched 666 individually numbered pairs of shoes at a cost of $1,018 per shoe on Monday, March 29. The shoes reportedly sold out in under a minute.

In a lawsuit filed on Monday in New York federal court, Nike said MSCHF Product Studio, the company that partnered with the one-hit rapper, materially altered its trademarked product without permission.

The corporation was also annoyed that MSCHF used its brand to promote Satan worship.

"The material alterations include at least referring to the shoe as the Satan Shoe, adding red ink and human blood to the midsole, adding red embroidered satanic-themed detailing, adding a bronze pentagram to the laces, and adding a new sock liner.

"There is already evidence of significant confusion and dilution occurring in the marketplace, including calls to boycott Nike in response to the launch of MSCHF’s Satan Shoes based on the mistaken belief that Nike has authorized or approved this product."

Nike is suing MSCHF for trademark infringement and seeking compensatory, statutory and punitive damages, plus all of the profits in an amount to be determined.

Nike also asked the court to order that the shoes and all marketing materials be turned over to Nike for destruction.

Lil Nas X is under fire for worshipping Satan in his new single "Montero (Call Me By My Name)" which dropped last week.

The music video featured the openly LGBT+ rapper giving Satan a lap dance and riding a stripper pole into hell.

LNX was unapologetic as parents everywhere criticized him for exposing their innocent children to Satanic worship.

Rapper Joyner Lucas, 32, was among the parents who called out the 21-year-old one-hit wonder on social media.

The father of one, best known for his rap single "I'm Not Racist," tweeted:

"I think the biggest problem for me is the fact he dont understand 'old town road' is every kids anthem. Children love him for that record. They tuned in and subscribed to his channels. So with no disclaimer he just dropped some left field ish & all our kids seen it. Smh [sic]."

LNX clapped back by blaming Lucas and other parents for not monitoring their children's media.

"I literally sing about lean & adultery in old town road. u decided to let your child listen. blame yourself," he tweeted.

Resellers managed to get their hands on all 666 individually pairs of LNX's bloody "Satan shoes" on Monday, March 29.

The Nike Air Max 97 sneakers, containing one drop of human blood, were sold out within minutes of the launch.

Nike has denied involvement in the marketing and distribution of Lil Nas X's limited edition, blood-stained "Satan" sneakers.

Lil Nas X and MSCHF joined forces to release 666 individually numbered pairs of customized Nike Air Max 97 sneakers for $1,018 each.

MSCHF launched the sneakers on Monday, March 29, days after Nas X dropped his controversial single and music video "Montero (Call Me By My Name)".

The Air Max 97 throwback sneakers reportedly contain "60cc ink" and "one drop of human blood."

NBA star Nick Young called out Nike and Lil Nas X for his satanic song and the upcoming release of the biohazard sneakers.

"My kids will never play Old Town road again," Young tweeted. "I'm still debating about wearing @Nike after this come Nike a drop of blood for real."

Nas X responded to Young's diss, tweeting: "They shouldn't be playing old town road anyway, we streaming call me by your name now."

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem also called out the one-hit rapper and his sneaker, saying the Satanic theme is corrupting the "God-given eternal soul" of kids.

In a carefully worded statement, Nike denied any involvement with the bloody shoes.

"We do not have a relationship with Little Nas X or MSCHF. Nike did not design or release these shoes and we do not endorse them."

Lil Nas X dropped a controversial music video for his song titled "Montero (Call Me By Your Name)."

Like most of Nas X's tracks, "Montero" is forgettable, but people will be talking about the music video for months.

Ahead of the music video release, Lil Nas X wrote:

"bro i wrote this song myself, co-directed the video, and had to step way out of my comfort zone for this moment to take place tonight! i hope you guys love it! F*CKK I CANT WAIT!!!"

For many viewers the music video was disturbing and unsettling. Many described the video as "demonic" and many prayed for Lil Nas X's soul.

Some fans compared a few of the scenes to singer FKA Twig's music video for her 2019 song "Cellophane."

One Twitter fan wrote: "Lil Nas X being unapologetically BLACK & GAY, giving queer kids someone to look up to AND pissing of homophobes in the process..."

On a positive note, Nas X's biological father sent him a text praising his effort: "Very creative video. I got through it. Congratulations. Live life on your terms. Very PROUD of you."

In an open letter on Instagram to his 14-year-old self, Nas X wrote:

"I wrote a song with our name in it. It's about a guy I met last summer. i know we promised to never come out publicly, i know we promised to never be 'that' type of gay person, i know we promised to die with the secret, but this will open doors for many other queer people to simply exist."
