Imagine being a musician who has to travel worldwide, something as agonizing as 17 hours then reading on social media that your children would rather you’re dead than alive.
Yup! That’s what RnB singer Brian Mcknight is addressing in a video to online comments from his grown up children who think he is a dead beat dad who has even abandoned his grandchildren.
Here’s some of what he had to say in defense of himself:
heineous craziness I have ever seen in my life. My eldest son said I am abandoning them for my news family, anyone who knows me knows over the last 30 years knows I have been there ever last step of the way, my two sons are 25 and 30, not 16. I’ve never missed a day of child support never done anything adversary to them I’ve always been there, I’ve always given them advise whether they took it or not, I’ve always been the one to help them achieve the dreams they want to. I guess my only fault is giving them my everything that I never had.
The singer goes on to mention that parents must practice tough love
I would tell you as parents out there, entitling your children is one of the worst things you could ever do coz I’m guilty of that.
Tough love is a tough thing to institute as a parent because you wanna help them as much as you can when I stopped doing that for them and it wasn’t like I completely got off of them. When I put them out of my house I paid for their apartment for two years, they didn’t have to work. Guys this is the time to grow up, it’s time to be men guys. They have spit in the face of my new wife.
Fans have responded to the video, urging him to move on from this tough period in his life:
It hurts to walk away from your children,but they can drain the life out of ya.
“Entitling your children is probably the worst thing you can do”, BINGO!
Boy 2 years without rent and they can’t get it together pretty sure we all in the comments wish we started life out like that…..TUFF LOVE TIME
Don’t waste your time with bad energy, they are grown men already.

You CANNOT spoil boys. They grow up to be entitled, feminine and handicapped.
