Teddy Riley Opens Up About Not Being Able To See His Son For Three Years In An Upcoming Episode Of ‘Red Table Talk’


In an upcoming episode of Red Table Talk, Grammy-winning music producer, Teddy Riley opens up about not seeing his son for three years.

As you may recall, in July, Teddy Riley took to Instagram to wish his youngest son a Happy Birthday, and in doing so, he opened up about his ongoing custody battle with his son’s mother. In his message, he revealed that he was intentionally being kept away from his child. He wrote:

“This is probably one of the saddest days of my life. It’s my baby son‘s birthday today and I haven’t seen him in three years plus. I’ve done everything that I’m supposed to do as a father financially & mentally but because this woman have process evil way, I have to deal with the corrupted government ATL system just to see my son but that will all change.”

He continued with,

“Thank God I’m a AMERICAN NATIONAL citizen and my day will come to be with my son for the rest of his life and mine. I’m being patient for that day, and when it comes I shall celebrate, because he deserves to live a great life as a Prince of a King!”

Although he was saddened about the absence of his son, Teddy Riley ended off the caption by remaining hopeful and rallying for other fathers who are also going through the same thing.

“Please help me wish my babyboy “Prince Mykal Theo Riley” a Happy Birthday!!!! I love you to pieces and the battle “Ain’t Over”. #BirthdayBoy #HappyBirthday #PRINCE #legacy #globalcommunicationentertainment”

He added:

“All father that is going through this reach out to [email protected] He will solve all your problems with the child support corruption. Time for the Bullish to stop and father to be with their children!!!!!”

Now, in an upcoming episode of Red Table Talk, the legendary producer/songwriter is getting candid about the sensitive matter and how it deeply affects him. In a trailer for the episode, Teddy Riley is asked if he has spoken to his son Mykel and if he’s had any contact with him. He gives a shocking response and says,

“I used to..That all stopped.”

The 54-year-old R&B hitmaker reportedly has a total of eight children. If you didn’t already know, he is the father of former Love & Hip Hop star Nia Riley.
