Bow Wow is a father.
The rapper made this admission in a rambling note on his official website, going into detail about why he kept the truth of his three-year old daughter, Shia, from fans and even saying he contemplated suicide at one point.
"For the past 3 years i been batteling life," Bow Wow says. "Even thought about taking my own. I felt like as a kid i did everything and saw everything too fast which spoiled my adult years. I felt as if i had no purpose to live(Thinking selfishly) until god gave me the illest gift of my life. No lambo, no blk card nuffn ammounts to my lil girl...
"I waited so long to tell yall the truth because i was nervous on how yall would look at me."
