Flo Rida’s 6-year-old son in ICU after falling from apartment

Rapper Flo Rida’s 6-year-old son, Zohar, is in an ICU with serious injuries after falling from the window of a fifth-floor apartment in New Jersey.

Zohar’s mother, Alexis Adams, revealed in a lawsuit filed Monday that the incident occurred three weeks ago and left the boy hospitalized with fractures to his pelvis and feet, a lacerated liver, collapsed lungs and internal bleeding.

She claimed the Jersey City building had been equipped with windows that “posed a hazardous condition,” causing her son, who was born with a rare neurological disorder, to fall onto the concrete pavement below.

Adams’ suit names building owners and managers, a construction company, a window installation company and others as defendants.

Adams filed a lawsuit against the owners and managers of the building.

“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 News12 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 is seeking damages, attorney’s fees and payment of Zohar’s medical bills.

“Flo Rida has only seen his son once during the paternity test [in December 2016] but kept his shades on and his back turned,” she claimed to the Daily Mail in May 2018.

“They were in the same room. He didn’t try to hug Zohar, nothing. It was very cold.”

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

There is not a cure for the condition, which affects over 1 million Americans.
