On May 24 this year a Chris Godfinger interview with Beenie Man was posted to Youtube and in it Beenie Man spoke negatively of his child’s mom in England saying, “Mi baby-mother is a kind of careless woman…Mi get a son a England which me neva know bout but mi know bout him now.”
Shezal Laing, who is reportedly the child’s mom in England who filed for child support from Beenie Man posted a video on September 19 responding, and it is entitled 'Beenie Man, mother of child responds to his lies' – where she creatively uses text, photos and Buz Luhrmann's tune, “Wear Sunscreen” to respond to what she calls Beenie’s lies.
Laing claims in the video that Beenie Man has not paid attention to his son and that when he reaches out his arms it is her and not the DJ that the boy is reaching for.
Still photos with a red suit clad Beenie Man bottle feeding his son grace the video’s cover page and as the child, who is now six years old, grows – the images are happy ones with just his mom and him.
Laing even ridicules the ace DJ, making cynical comments about his appearance and ends the video with a final scene that demands child support payment.
"Pay the money you owe me and never, ever mention me or my child again," the video ends.
