Rapper Flo Rida’s 6-year-old son, Zohar Dillard, fell from the fifth floor of a New Jersey apartment building onto the pavement — and has been in the ICU for almost a month.
The unfortunate incident happened on Mar. 4 at the home the child and his mother, Alexis Adams, shared in Jersey City.
Zohar is still in the ICU, News 12 NJ reported, and suffered pelvic fractures, left metatarsal fractures, grade three liver laceration, internal bleeding and a collapsed lung in the accident three weeks ago.

Adams filed an eight-page lawsuit on Monday in Hudson County Superior Court, alleging the apartment building’s hazardous windows led to the fall. The lawsuit lists owners, managers, a construction company, a window installation company and others as defendants.
“I am devastated, angry and struggling to come to terms with the fact that my only child has suffered severe injuries due to willful negligence of our landlord and others involved in failing to take necessary safety measures,” she said in a statement.
Flo Rida, whose real name is Tramar Lacel Dillard, is not involved in the lawsuit.
The Post has reached out to reps for Dillard for comment.

The mother is seeking compensation to pay for the treatment of her son’s injuries.
The 6-year-old was born with hydrocephalus, a neurological condition that causes an abnormal accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid within cavities in the brain. The boy was later diagnosed with autism.
“As a single mom to a special needs child, this feels like a nightmare. My heart is broken into a million pieces,” Adams wrote in the suit.
Zohar remains in an undisclosed intensive care unit recovering from his injuries, according to News 12.
In the lawsuit, the mother alleged the landlord’s “negligent, careless and reckless manner” for failing to install the correct window guard sizes caused her son to fall to the concrete pavement.

Adams and the “Get Low” rapper do not share custody of their son and she has full guardianship over Zohar, she told Insider two months ago.
The mom also alleged the 43-year-old avoided paying for the child’s tuition and health insurance for years.
“Flo Rida has only seen his son once during the paternity test but kept his shades on and his back turned,” she told Daily Mail in 2018. “They were in the same room. He didn’t try to hug Zohar, nothing. It was very cold.”

In 2018, Judge Shira Atzmon ordered Dillard’s child support payments to increase from $8,000 to $9,000 a month, according to Bossip.
As of last December, Adams and Dillard are still battling out child support payments.
