Yesterday, 106 & Park Host Shad “Bow Wow” Moss appeared on daytime talk show “Anderson Live” to discuss fatherhood and a couple of other topics with Anderson and his co-host Snooki of “Jersey Shore.” Of course parenting and baby talk was the most popular subject as Snooki and Bow Wow are both new-ish parents.
During the interview, Bow Wow lit up when discussing his daughter Shai and wasted no time chiming in with Snooki as she discussed the joys of being a parent and even shared that he loves fathering Shai. It’s always good to see a young black male own up to his responsibilities and obligations as a father; however, there will always be skeptics giving the side-eye and wondering if it’s all for show. The fact that Bow Wow’s been called out by his daughter’s mother and her sister several times for being a deadbeat dad doesn’t help his Father of the Year case.
If you recall, back when little Shai was born her mom Joie Chavis shared that she refused to put the rapper’s name on her daughter’s birth certificate because he was not a father. Joie’s younger sister, Naja Chavis later on echoed these claims by going at the 106 & Park host on Twitter.
“You publicly announced that Shai was your daughter, when are you going to publicly announce that you’re a DEADBEAT? @bowwow Shai deserves better.”
That tweet was accompanied by a slew of other accusatory tweets hurled at Moss and his mother. Many were easily able to write him off as a deadbeat due to accusations made by the Chavis women; however, now that he’s more out in the open discussing his daughter some are unsure of what to believe.
Back in October we reported that Shad and Joie had been in court trying to work out how much he should pay in child support. While Shad agreed to pay $3,000 per month,stating that he only made $4,000 a month as a Cash Money Records employee, after the court hearing, he was named the new host of 106 and Park, which means his monthly income probably increased drastically. Consequently, Shad and Joie will return to court for a permanent hearing this December. It will be interesting to see how he proves how much he loves his daughter then.
Check out the video of Bow Wow on Anderson. Do you think he’s being totally honest regarding his involvement in his daughter’s life?

Bow Wow’s daughter, Shai, and the Harris family aren’t the only ones getting cute this week. Thought I’d share this photo of Isabella Freeman, the daughter of “My Wife and Kids” star Jennifer Freeman and her ex-husband, Earl Watson. The cutie patootie was spotted shopping at Whole Foods in her denim jumpsuit, pink sandals, and huge floral headband. And my eyes could be tweaking, but I think she’s pushing around a child-size cart. Isn’t she adorable?
Speaking of adorable kids, Bow Wow (who received a lot of heat last week for child support issues and his financial situation) and Joie Chavis’s daughter, Shai, was seen having fun with her grandmother, Teresa Caldwell, this past weekend The little one in her floral dress and bow headband was in vogue with her granny, and Teresa even put her pic side-to-side with her son’s baby picture. As she says: “The same face.” I can see it!
And T.I in his brightest sweater, Tiny and their large family got together for a photoshoot with InTouch where they channeled the Cosbys. With the exception of Zonnique of course, T.I’s genes are very strong in these kids. Did they do the Cosby’s justice?
Sister Of Bow Wow’s Baby Mama Puts Him On Blast: “When Are You Gonna Publicly Announce You’re A Deadbeat?”
Najah Chavis, the little sister of Joie Chavis who is the mother of Bow Wow’s daughter, is not afraid to get e-buck—much like her big sis. There was already controversy over Bow Wow’s parenting–or lack thereof–last summer when Joie said she didn’t put his name on their child’s birth certificate because, well, he wasn’t a father, and now her little sister is pulling a Christina Milian and calling Bow Wow a deadbeat all over the Internet.
The YBF caught the trail of tweets where Najah essentially says Bow Wow fronts for the public, posting pics with his daughter like he’s father of the year, when neither he nor his mother sees Shai on a regular basis. Here are just a few of the messages she sent out:
Najah may be right about Bow Wow but Shai is not her baby, nor is that her situation to expose on the Internet. Perhaps she should scroll through the e-rolodex of men who have been put on blast for failing at fatherhood and see how quickly that made them change their ways—it doesn’t. You can’t make any man be a father and if Bow Wow really isn’t providing any type of financial assistance for his child as she alleged in other tweets she needs to spend her free time helping her big sis fill out child support paperwork not being messy on Twitter. Thoughts?

Celebrity baby mother and father drama is back and in full effect ya’ll.
Just last week, rapper Bow Wow came forward to reveal to his fans that the rumors and his mom’s tweets are true: he has a nearly three-month-old daughter with video model Joie Chavis. While there was speculation for a while that he and Chavis had a child, the rapper finally broke the news on his website, BowWow Today, gushing about daughter Shai Moss and explaining why he kept her under wraps:
My lil girl is getting BIG fast. i love every minute of it. She inspires me to go harder. Even made me treat my mother better, its like it made me into a man over night. Never been a fan of posting pix of my daughter. Reason is because i want my boo boo to have everything i didnt.
But more details are coming to light about the birth of Shai, including the fact that Chavis left Bow Wow’s name off of the child’s birth certificate because she was upset about his late arrival to the hospital. According to TMZ, Chavis says that Bow Wow didn’t appear at the hospital until six days after her birth (done by emergency C-section by the way) when he came to take the two home. In what seemed to be an act done out of anger, Chavis left Bow Wow’s name off of the birth certificate. She told TMZ that she’s willing to move forward and have his name put on the certificate, since he’s shown himself to be 100 percent committed to his daughter. However, that’s going to be a bit more difficult than she thinks. Guess these two will have to meet up in court and let a judge fix this mess. To get the full story and see the birth certificate, check out TMZ.com
What do you think of the fact that Chavis left Bow Wow off the birth certificate out of spite?
