More Details About Flo Rida’s Child Support Package
According to the outlet, the rapper is ordered to pay $14,000 per month in child support. As well as $2,212 monthly for his son Zohar Dillard’s health insurance.
Additionally, Flo Rida was also ordered to create a $300,000 escrow account to pay for his son’s “needs.” He will reportedly need to replenish the account every September.
Furthermore, Flo Rida was also instructed to give his son’s mother, Alexis Adams, a payment of $188,000. The one-time fee will cover the costs of his son’s outstanding expenses.
Flo Rida’s Son’s Mother’s Lawyer Shares Statement
Following the court hearing, Adams’ lawyer, Dror Bikel, shared a brief statement with Insider.
“She’s grateful to the court, and that it’s over.”
During the hearing, Adams reportedly explained that she considered going on Medicaid after Flo Rida allegedly neglected their son’s “health insurance and medical bills.” This allegedly occurred after Zohar Dillard fell five stories from a Jersey City apartment window in March, as reported by The Shade Room.
After the fall, the boy was placed in a full-body cast with limited movement. His injuries included “multiple pelvis fractures, left metatarsal fractures, grade three liver laceration, internal bleeding, and collapsed lungs.”

Flo Rida Reportedly Wants Visitation With His Son
Lastly, Flo Rida’s lawyer, Stephen L. Drummond, explained that the rapper would like to arrange “monthly visits” with his six-year-old son.
“He wants to have visitation with his son. This is something we’d really like to see.”
According to the outlet, the court’s support magistrate wished the rapper and Adams well in working out a visitation schedule among themselves.
As The Shade Room previously reported, the rapper has opted to keep his relationship with his six-year-old son private. After Dillard’s fall in March, the rapper issued a statement.
“Great day, thank you to everyone who reached out with their concerns and prayers for my son. He is getting the best medical care and miraculously survived a tragic fall. I ask for your continued prayers as he undergoes rehabilitation but I would appreciate that this remain a private matter.”
