Yesterday R&B singer Brian McKnight was accused by his son Brian Jr of being a deadbeat father. But the singer is now fighting back, and saying that his son is the deadbeat!

Brian McKnight claims that his 30 year old son is upset, because the superstar singer "cut him off." The singer claims that he paid his son's rent for two years, after Brian Jr graduated from college. And eventually his father stopped paying.

Brian claimed that his sons (age 30 and 27) are refusing to get jobs, and he also claims that they recently broke into his home to vandalize his wedding pictures.

The singer has four children, three of which are from his previous marriage to Julie McKnight. He has since remarried in 2017.


Yesterday, Brian McKnight Jr posted a very touching post on Instagram - that his father was a deadbeat and abandoned them. Brian McKnight Jr., who goes by the nickname BJ, posted first, reflecting on the pain he feels over the strained relationship he has with his celebrity father. He also accused his dad of not spending time with his grandchildren.

Here's the post:


Here's the post by daughter Bri:

BJ’s sister Briana echoed her big brother’s sentiments in a post of her own.

“Daddy’s little girl” was never really a thing for me. Nobody understands what I’ve been through except for my siblings. Believe it or not, I’m not always the person I seem to be. I’m not always happy and most of the time I’m battling my own demons just like everyone else. I grew up thinking that the things that happened to me and my dad’s relationship was my fault,” she began.
