Earlier this month, the 6-year-old child of rapper Flo Rida, Zohar Paxton (Dillard), fell five stories from the window of his home in a Jersey City apartment building. The child, known to be on the autism spectrum and to have a developmentally compromising brain condition, remains in critical condition.

The child suffered collapsed lungs, a shattered pelvis, fractures to the left foot and ankle, internal bleeding, a shattered pelvis, and a Grade 3 liver laceration from the fall.

“As a single mom to a special needs child, this feels like a nightmare. My heart is broken into a million pieces. It is devastating to see my child go through such pain and trauma knowing that this could've been avoided.” – Alexis Adams, the child’s mother.

Since the incident occurred, legal action has been taken by Ms. Adams. The lawsuit, filed by Steven Haddad of Haddad Law Firm, demands an undisclosed amount of money from Goldberg Management, Carlos Machado, Pitch Perfect 74 LLC, the construction company that was contracted to build the building they lived in, the window installation company, and many others. None of these parties have responded to inquiries regarding the lawsuit.

Ms. Adams alleges the management team of the building was careless for neglecting to install window guards on the windows of their apartment. Had this been addressed, she feels her son would never have fallen out of the window.

Flo Rida is not mentioned in Alexa Adams’ lawsuit. According to Adams, she says Flo Rida has not been involved in the child’s life in over two years following the rapper calling his son “an evil f****n’ child.”

The 6-year-old has been in critical condition since falling from the apartment building window.
