NOT HIS WEEK: Bow Wow's Dad PENS Open Letter Asking Him To Not Drag His Name In The Mud Any Longer

Bow Wow's biological father must be paying attention to his son's baby mama woes as he's penned an open letter warning him about the pitfalls of alcohol and "deadbeat Dad" syndrome that runs in their family.  Read it inside......

The biological father of Bow Wow (Alfonso Moss) has penned an open letter to the rapper begging him to stop dragging his name through the mud while, also warning him about the generational pitfalls of alcohol and being a "deadbeat" that run in their family. He also said that Keyshia Cole & Tyler Perry have helped their families despite the pitfalls.  Is Alfonso trying to ask Bow to do the same?  Or is he just a father desperate to reach out to his son?

We told you earlier that Bow Wow is already being accused of being a deadbeat (timewise at least) by his baby mom's sister, so this makes the timing of the letter even more interesting.  

 

Read Alfonso's letter in full below:

“Son, I guess the only way you want to communicate with me is through the media. I recently read your article in Vibe and I felt like I needed to contact you.

“First off, I want you to know how happy and proud I am of you and your success. I was also blessed that your mother and step-father did an excellent job of raising you to the man you are today. I can also say that I am proud that you have done your best to be a father to your daughter. I don’t want you to have the regrets that I have had for not being in your life more than I have been. Your Grandfather, my Dad, left me at an early age as well, it is time to stop this cycle.”

“I actually thought that we were making positive steps to rebuild our relationship when we spoke last year during labor day weekend. I thought that call was going to be like it use to be when you and one of your girlfriends were together and you asked me how to cook tacos.”

“We had a good bonding moment. So, when you called me last year, I thought we were having a private conversation only to see the video on Vibe.com of you asking me “are you clean,” like I’m some kind of junkie or something. I am NOT a junkie, but I am an alcoholic.”

“I am concerned and worried about you. I am not sure if you know this or not, but Alcoholism runs on both sides of your family. Both of your grandfathers and me have struggled with the disease. Please be careful and be mindful so that you will not succumb to this disease that is in your genes.”

“Shad, I never asked you for anything, but I am asking for one thing now. Can you please stop throwing me under the bus and talking bad about me?”

“I may be an alcoholic, but I never physically abused you. Keyshia Cole tried to help her Mother. Tyler Perry takes care of his family financially and he was sexually abused by some of them. All I am asking is that you stop dragging my name in the mud.”

 

Seems like Bow Wow could inherited his alleged "deadbeat" ways outright.  But was this open letter necessary?  Speak on it.

Yes the letter was necessary.

Yes the letter was necessary. This might open Bow Wow mind, because what he did was wrong. I remember that footage wondering if his father was on drugs. It was wrong for them just to play that clip and it was wrong for Bow Wow to bring a private matter in the media. Well from all of this I'm wondering what kind of man is Bow Wow. According to the aunt of his child he does not take care of his child and secondly he does not know how to forgive. It's a shame.

CTFU!!!!!!!! Is this dude

CTFU!!!!!!!! Is this dude serious?!! "Keyshia Cole tried to help her Mother. Tyler Perry takes care of his family financially and he was sexually abused by some of them. All I am asking is that you stop dragging my name in the mud.” *In Tamar Braxton's Voice* OMG that line right there is totally DIFFERENT!!! I'm seriously at my computer and can't stop laughing! Who does that? "I'm not a junkie, but I am an alcoholic," REALLY BITCH? He needs to be ashamed of his damn self! BWAHAAAAAAAAHAHA

I think he wrote that

I think he wrote that "letter" while he was hittin the bottle smh. I'm still trying to figure out what Keyshia Cole/Frankie and TPerry have to do with him & Bow Wow!!??!! What he really wanted to say was "Son, keep my name out ya mouth and callin me a deadbeat when you don't take care ya own kid." Damn, whatever happen to keepin family business, in the family smh. "Just cuz I have a drink or two, don't make me an AL-CHO-HOL-IC"

Exactly! Why is he further

Exactly! Why is he further adding fuel to the fire by sending his son a public message? He's trying to warn bow wow that two wrongs don't make a right, yet he's lashing out at bow wow because he posted a video about him. I JUST CAN'T with these parents who expect their child to do better when they don't know better, because the parent(s) didn't teach them. I'm not at all defending bow wow, but that boy has every right to be upset with his pappy if he wasn't there for him growing up! If he thought he didn't have a relationship with his son before, well he definitely doesn't have one now. And you're right he has to be drunk because I refuse to believe a man is that DAMN stupid.

Everything Ned the Wino

Everything Ned the Wino addressed in that damn "Go Tell Him on the Mountain" cermon is a good 10 years too late. The "damage" is done. Lets just pray that Bow Wow dad, Frankie, Lindsay Lohan dad, and Tracey Morgan mother don't get their own reality show on VH1 called "Hollywood Ex-parents."

Let's get it poppin's picture

Deadbeat dad isn't a gene you

Deadbeat dad isn't a gene you pass along to your child, its an ACT of CHOICE. Bow Wow is capable of being a good dad but CHOOSES not to. He makes comittments as an artist to his fans but can't comitt to being a father, please. Clearly his dad is looking for some money to perhaps buy a bottle of crown royal or henny, it is the weekend smh.

Hey Dumbass Tori, The dad was

Hey Dumbass Tori, The dad was talking about Alcoholism passing thru genes, which is true. Next time learn reading comprehension 101.
MadStyle's picture

Hey you dirty, nasty looking

Hey you dirty, nasty looking embecile with "no style" his father was clearly stating that alcoholism lead to him being a deadbeat, wow next time you need to use your reading comp skills, I'm sorry you are on welfare and got kids you or your imprisoned BABYDADDIES can't take care of slore. Boy I tell you, "These hoes be actin up and YBF be lettin em," put a muzzle on on it tramp, you are one of my MANY haters, so take a number and get in line smh...DISMISSED!!!

I am so sick of all these

I am so sick of all these open letters. They are just an attempt to either become or remain relevant. If someone doesn't want to talk, they don't want to talk. Putting them on blast publicly is definitely NOT going to help the situation. Why can't people just keep private ish private these days?

bow should have stayed with

bow should have stayed with Miss Dade or Angela, and he should have stayed under mgmt with JDupri

If that man wants to speak to

If that man wants to speak to his son regardless of timing, let him speak. The only thing i disliked is that its so public but if thats the only way he can get through to him then hey. I get tired of these celebrities shooting slugs at their families and making it more than what it is for attention. Clearly, Bow Wow has the potential to be a deadbeat so hey nothing wrong with his dad saying watch it, 2 wrongs dont make a right. He aint roaching on bow wow so hey...if celebs can get on twitter and pop off about personal family issues then whats wrong with this letter? I'd honestly rather see something like this as oppose to what Bow Wow's babymama's sister is doing. It ain't even her place...she's only looking for 15 minutes of fame cause what she's doing is going to do absolutely nothing for that child. This very well may cause him to dissassociate himself from them even more...

I think his father could have

I think his father could have reached him by other means, if he really wanted to. If his father abandoned him, then why is all the burden on Bow Wow to reach out and build a relationship with him. My father left my family too, and it takes effort to build a relationship after a long absence. Bow Wow still has time to be a good father and reconcile his relationship with his child.

I truely believe that bow wow

I truely believe that bow wow is bitter at the way that his career has become after being so high up. if you watch interviews of his he seems cocky and arrogent. he talks about his father constantly which is wierd because my father left my family and I honestly couldnt care less when his name was brought up and when he tried to reconnect with me. but I do believe that bow wow is using his baby as a pond in his career, a way to make him seem a little more grown and older.

This is straight BAFOONERY!!

This is straight BAFOONERY!! Why can't Bow Wow, Bow Wow's baby's mother, Bow Wow's baby's aunt and Bow Wow's father keep their personal business just that...PERSONAL. Stop using the social media as an outlet for your drama and mudslinging. Grow the hell up, as well! Dude if you wanted to send the boy a letter...what happened to postal mail or email? You put that letter on social media because you wanted it there for all to see just as Shai's aunt wanted to put your son's business out there as well. People get on my nerves thinking that airing people's dirty laundry makes them change overnight and fix all that is wrong. It doesn't happen that way. All this personal life isht being put out there on Twitter and Facebook really shows the immaturity of everyone involved. When is it going to stop and with who. I encourage Bow Wow to do better and respond in the privacy of an email or letter that goes to the post office. Hell, someone pick up a freaking phone and leave a voicemail if no one answer.
