From Hello Beautiful – Another day, another open letter! Bow Wow’s father has penned an emotional letter asking his son to stop “throwing him under the bus” airing their family’s dirty laundry in public.
The rapper has not been quiet about his troubled relationship with his biological father, Alfonso Moss, who suffers from alcoholism, and has let it be known that the two aren’t on speaking terms.
Alfonso has penned an open letter in which he calls for his son to keep the peace:
“Son, I guess the only way you want to communicate with me is through the media. I recently read your article in Vibe and I felt like I needed to contact you,” the note began.
“First off, I want you to know how happy and proud I am of you and your success. I was also blessed that your mother and step-father did an excellent job of raising you to the man you are today. I can also say that I am proud that you have done your best to be a father to your daughter. I don’t want you to have the regrets that I have had for not being in your life more than I have been. Your Grandfather, my Dad, left me at an early age as well, it is time to stop this cycle.”
“I actually thought that we were making positive steps to rebuild our relationship when we spoke last year during labor day weekend. I thought that call was going to be like it use to be when you and one of your girlfriends were together and you asked me how to cook tacos.”
“We had a good bonding moment. So, when you called me last year, I thought we were having a private conversation only to see the video on Vibe.com of you asking me “are you clean,” like I’m some kind of junkie or something. I am NOT a junkie, but I am an alcoholic.”
