Papers allegedly cheated on Kim when Royal was on two months old. They had a nasty breakup and Kim has been trying to distance herself from him – and him from their baby – ever since.
Papers, real name Jeremy Neil, doesn’t want to be chalked up as another deadbeat dad, so he’s asking family court to get involved and order a visitation plan.
According to Bossip, Papers filed for visitation in June, asking for one day a week to spend time with his daughter. He also agreed to have a court-approved supervisor.
Kim didn’t show up to the July 9 hearing. Instead, she filed a separate lawsuit claiming Papers was allegedly abusive in their relationship. His publicist, Tasha Hilton, says Kim’s allegations are nothing more than a ploy to further prevent her client from spending time with his baby girl. Papers denies ever getting physical with Kim.
“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.”
Despite reports, Hilton said her client is not seeking full custody, he only wants to see his child.
“He’s not trying to take custody, he’s not trying to take her. He is literally just trying to see her. He’s been trying to do it very quietly.” Hilton added, “[Lil Kim is] playing really dirty now with the domestic situation. There has never been any domestic violence.”
Kim and Papers met when he was 24 and she was 38, and accusations of infidelity plagued their relationship.
“They had a lot of challenges with regard to being faithful and infidelity,” Hilton said.
The former couple is set to appear in family court in New Jersey on the domestic violence allegations.
