*At first, Lil Mo thought it was funny to find out her stepson, Jerez Coleman AKA Kidd Cole, was on MTV’s “Catfish.”
But then, she became shocked as she realized it was no laughing matter.
Kidd Cole was exposed for running an Internet scam — saying he was a younger producer of Kanye West‘s G.O.O.D. Music label.
He convinced people to pay for lavish amenities by promising them jobs in the music industry.
But Lil Mo isn’t putting too much blame on her estranged stepson, due to his circumstances.
“Big shoutout to my ‘estranged’ SON @colepushaz,” Mo wrote. “I cannot sit here and LOL and point fingers at a young man that has the SAME FATHER as my daughters Heaven and Godiss Love.”
She continued with talking about seeing him on the show and thinking he made it on TV… at first!
“I saw the MTV special ‘Catfish’ and my heart was saddened. I laughed at first because i was like ‘Heaven, ya brother on TV.’ BUT the fact is, i literally saw this YOUNG MAN raise HIMSELF!!”
Mo blamed his father, her ex-husband Gus Stone for failing his son.
“His grandmother helped, but he wasn’t her responsibility. Numerous payments was sent to the child support account that I paid out of my pocket. He was raised without a ‘YOU know what’ !!” she said.
She added it’s not Coleman’s fault, “in these streets, get it how you LIVE IT!! He is NOT a bad guy. He needs guidance. I truly hope he makes his way in the music industry, which is way more cruel than the real world. P.S. I Love you Jerez!! Never give up ok!! Love always, MOm.”
She talked about her estranged relationship with her stepson, whom she paid child support for… instead of her ex.
“Kidd Cole never lived with us. He lived 7 minutes away from us in Anne Arundel County in Maryland,” she explained. “I saw him riding a bike in a neighborhood where my parents and I owned a home. I told my ex to stop the car I saw a boy that looked like Jerez [Coleman]. He pulled up to the car startled and said, ‘Hi, daddy.’”
She continued to talk about their estranged relationship.
“When I saw the nature of what Kidd Cole’s episode entailed, my heart dropped,” she added. “As we had NO contact. Just child support payments, that I made out of my personal account. I never saw him again after that until I found him on [Instagram].”
Lil Mo did address rumors with her ex of his son working in the music industry,
“I was very surprised,” she told The Jasmine Brand. “I had heard he was producing and working with Jaden Smith. When I asked his father was it true, he replied that he was crazy. I said that he got it honest.”
Ultimately, she feels Kidd Cole just needs a chance to make it!
“I know some of his living situation from the past, because I am no longer connected to his father and he is of age, I have no jurisdiction to take care of him. But I know this kid has had a HARD LIFE. But he is a good kid. He just needs a chance.”
