Ghostface Killah has been accused of being a deadbeat dad by his gay son, Infinite Coles. In a shocking social media post shared on Wednesday (May 24), the R&B singer uploaded a statement to Instagram referring to the Wu-Tang Clan legend as a “deadbeat” dad for ghosting him and his other siblings. In the lengthy message, Coles shared his reluctance to expose his father’s actions publicly but expressed his deep emotional distress at not talking to his dad for over 15 years.
“I have never been the type to go online and talk about my personal life, my family or my emotions,” Infinite began. “However, today I’m giving an inside look into my broken heart, because I am feeling more lost and hopeless than I have ever been. @therealghostfacekillah I didn’t really want to do this; but at this point, I’m tired of keeping quiet to save your reputation. I’m tired of the PAIN. My heart has been aching and longing to be loved by you, MY FATHER for way too long. So since you are unreachable perhaps this will get your attention.”
He continued: “I haven’t had a full conversation with you or seen you in over 15 years! You haven’t once tried to reach out to me to see how I’m feeling or how I’m doing. I have messages that literally show me reaching out to you and receiving no response for over a DECADE!”
Coles proceeded to outline the severity of the accusations by stating, “The legend that you all love, Ghostface Killah is the full definition of a deadbeat. Dad, you let us live without light, gas or even communication from you for years. You have all this coin and yet you allow my uncles to clean up your mess.”
Additionally, the Destiny singer shared allegations that the “Triumph” rapper has been a “deadbeat” to all of his children, including his “mentally ill” daughter, and grandchildren.
“I can’t even say you’re only a deadbeat dad to me because I’m gay, because you’re a deadbeat to all of your kids,” he added. “What I’ve been seeking is the answer as to why? Is it because your father turned [his] back on you? WHYYYY do you LOVE everyone but your kids? It’s backwards, it’s ugly, it’s hurtful and it’s HUMILIATING.”
The statement concluded with Coles clarifying that he isn’t looking for money, but simply Ghostface’s “heart,” “attention” and “love. He also provided alleged screenshots of failed attempts to establish a connection with the Wu-Tang Clan co-founder, along with a childhood photo.
“For the people reading this, I really want y’all to understand I’m not looking for attention or sympathy from anyone. I’m looking for attention from my father,” he wrote. “Daddy, we need you. “Not your money, but your heart, your attention, your love,” he wrote. “I hope you change your ways and realize that you have some beautiful and talented children out here, with deep voids in their heart because YOU HAVE BEEN MISSING. You’ve ghosted us for far too long.”
