We've heard many celebrities often find themselves facing odd accusations from strangers that they’ve never met. Hidden childrens, but this one maybe worth looking. A man claiming to son of LL Cool J speaks out.
This past weekend, video began to circulate of a young artist by the name of LoveBenJi saying that he is the “hidden” son of Hip Hop pioneer LL Cool J, though he’s only aware of his dad by his government name, James Todd Smith.
BenJi claimed that LL made him sign a non-disclosure agreement because “they wanted to silence me,” though he felt that he needed to tell his truth.
“I feel like it should be public; now I need to just get this off my chest. I want to give thanks to you too, man. James Todd Smith, That’s what I know him as, [my] father [and] great man. But many of you probably know him as LL Cool J,” he said. He claimed that LL blocked him on socials, though he sends him $200 every once in a while. BenJi also stated that he tried to visit his father and his family in the past. “I really didn’t want to take it here and have the blogs blow it up or nothing like that…Since he’s blocking my number, I haven’t heard much from him. I feel like this is how I’ll be about to reach out to him. That’s my truth. Let me know, Dad,” he concluded.
