(Bossip) The honeymoon is over for Lil Kim and baby daddy Mr. Papers.
Papers, real name Jeremy Neil, has been trying to see his daughter, Royal Reign Jones Neil, now one, ever since the couple broke up over cheating claims when she was two months old. Papers said Kim has blocked him from seeing the baby ever since, and as a last resort, he’s asked the family courts to step in.
Papers, 27, filed for visitation last month, asking for one day a week to parent Royal Reign, and even agreed to have a court-approved monitor supervise the visits. “He’s not trying to take custody, he’s not trying to take her,” Tasha Hilton, Papers’ publicist, exclusively told BOSSIP. “He is literally just trying to see her. He’s been trying to do it very quietly.” “He doesn’t want his daughter to grow up and think her father didn’t care about her,” Hilton said. “The one thing that does matter to him is having his daughter in his life.”
Kim, 41, didn’t bother showing up for their July 9 hearing—and instead, filed her own suit accusing Papers of beating her up. But Papers insisted to Hilton that things never got physical during their relationship, and he believes the suit is a ploy to further prevent him from seeing the baby. “She’s playing really dirty now with the domestic situation,” Hilton said. “There has never been any domestic violence.”
Now, the former couple is set to go before a North Jersey family court judge this week on the domestic violence allegations.
Hilton said the pair met when he was 24 and she was 38, and power struggles over infidelity plagued their relationship. “They had a lot of challenges with regard to being faithful and infidelity,” she said.
But regardless of his shaky standing with Kim, Papers told Hilton his top priority is being there for his daughter. “He doesn’t want his daughter to grow up and think her father didn’t care about her,” Hilton said. “The one thing that does matter to him is having his daughter in his life.”
