Love & Hip Hop’s Moniece Slaughter Says Biological Dad Disowned Her For Coming Out
Moniece Slaughter is sharing a bittersweet story about her biological father. Over the weekend, the Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star shared a side-by-side photo of herself as an adult and a photo of her as an infant being held by her father. In a lengthy social media post, Moniece says that her father disowned her for many reasons, one of them being that she ‘came out’. She also says he didn’t raise her but now she feels ‘literally nothing about the matter’. She writes:
So every time I’m live with my mom @marlatalks & you guys swear I look just like her. Don’t get me wrong. My little mommy is a Beaut ??. But If you ask me, this guy & I are twins (aesthetically). Yup. You guessed it. Introducing my biological father, Mr. Michael Lloyd Slaughter. You won’t find him on ig…I can’t even find him in real life ?????. But you can find him on FB. He disowned me ?. First for reciprocating the extreme disrespect he’d unjustly bestowed upon my mother. Then because he didn’t want anyone to associate my brother Kyle, and my sister, Lauryn, with me because of my portrayal on reality tv. Lastly for coming out.
I used to feel so hurt. Then I felt angry. Then I felt slightly empathetic. Now I feel literally nothing about the matter. It took a while. Then I released. Relieving him of his moral obligation & God given right (he had no legal rights), to love & be there for me. Relieved him of the freedom I’d given him to be in my son’s life ( he was in and out because he told my BD that he didn’t like me, & he’d been going behind my back to get to kam through dreux. But obviously never consistently enough). Moral of the story you ask? He helped make me. He didn’t raise me. He loved me in the only way he knew how. It just wasn’t the best for me. I realized that it wasn’t my fault. I didn’t ask to be here. I didn’t get to pick my parents. It wasn’t my loss. It was his. I’m the child, whether I’m 3mo. or 32yrs. He’s the “parent.” It’s NEVER my responsibility to make him feel wanted. It was always his job to show me I was wanted by him. That I was loved by him. He just didn’t know how. But God had something bigger & better in his will for me.
And I was very loved, indeed. Not only by my mother. But by my Father, Dave @davetake6. A heavy presence in my life. My son’s life. And everything that we do & are. I wanted for nothing.
theJasmineBRAND broke the story earlier this year that the Love & Hip Hop Hollywood star was joining the Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta cast.
Fast forward to the present day and that news has been confirmed, as she’s currently on this season of the hit show.
