Flo Rida speaks out after 6-year-old son survives fall from window


Flo Rida gave a positive update on his 6-year-old son, Zohar Dillard, who is in an intensive care unit with serious injuries after falling from the window of a fifth-floor apartment earlier this month.

“Great day, thank you to everyone who reached out with their concerns and prayers for my son,” the Florida-based rapper, 43, wrote on his Instagram Story Thursday.

The musician — whose real name is Tramar Lacel Dillard — added that Zohar “is getting the best medical care and miraculously survived a tragic fall.”

Flo Rida asked his fans for “continued prayers” as his son “undergoes rehabilitation,” and he concluded his statement by expressing his desire for the situation to “remain a private matter.”

Though the tragic accident occurred on March 4, it became public knowledge earlier this week after the child’s mother, Alexis Adams, filed a civil lawsuit against the Jersey City building.

In the suit, obtained by Page Six, Adams said that the incident left Zohar hospitalized with fractures in his pelvis and left foot, a lacerated liver, collapsed lungs and internal bleeding.

She went on to claim that the complex had installed windows with “incorrect sized guards,” posing “a hazardous condition” that caused her son — who was born with a rare neurological disorder — to fall “to the concrete pavement below.”

The apartment building’s owners and managers, a construction company, a window installer and others were named as defendants.

Adams is seeking damages, attorney’s fees and payment of Zohar’s medical bills.

“As a single mom to a special-needs child, this feels like a nightmare. My heart is broken into a million pieces,” she said in a statement to News 12 New Jersey.

“I am devastated, angry and struggling to come to terms with the fact that my only child has suffered severe injuries due to willful negligence of our landlord and others involved in failing to take necessary safety measures.”

Adams has previously said that Flo Rida has no involvement in their child’s life.

Since his birth in September 2016, Zohar has struggled with hydrocephalus, which is “caused by an abnormal accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid within cavities of the brain called ventricles, resulting in pressure on the brain,” according to the Hydrocephalus Association.
