There was a lot of judging of Lil Nas X when his mom was filmed begging on a corner the same week his lastest single hit number one on the Billboard chart.
LNX has been open with his strained relationship with his mom due to her addictions.
"I never really talk about my mom," LNX said soon after he got famous off of country-rap. "She's an addict so we don't have the closest relationship. Even trying to get her better - things didn't quite work out. But there's still love..."
While some folks were criticizing LNX for allowing his mom to be on the streets, his dad stood up for his son in an Instagram post.
"Despite what people say @lilnasx is the greatest kid a parent can be BLESSED with. Although his mom is in a struggle with an addiction she's STILL a QUEEN and he goes through great lengths to make sure we're taking care of. Those who have family members and friends dealing with addiction understands that there ain't enough money you can throw at this situation to make it right. I dont usually address personal issues publicly but felt like this need to be. Please join us in keeping her in your PRAYERS. And to those out there trying to create a false story you wont prosper," he typed.
