Benzino Denies Coi Ever Slept in Cars or Dealt Drugs
Benzino responded to his daughter's accusations on Instagram Live on Tuesday (Nov. 14), saying Coi Leray never slept in any cars or dealt any drugs. The New Jersey rapper had made the aforementioned claims in an interview with Angie Martinez. Benzino added that his daughter appeared "brainwashed" in making such allegations.
“She said she slept in cars," Benzino said. "She ain’t never slept in no f**king cars that I knew about. I had my daughter five months out the year. I was with her mother until she was 9, then I had her from 9 to 16, five months out the year. She lived with me twice. She lived here in Atlanta with me. She went to Campbell High School. I was a single dad, and I was taking care of my kids. All of my kids. And her two older brothers by two other men that wasn't mines."
He continued, "She looks like she’s almost brainwashed. She ain’t ever slept in no car or sold drugs. I don’t know why she’s running with this narrative.”
