R&B singer Brian McKnight bought his stepdaughter a brand new BMW and posted about his new purchase on his social media page.
Brian married his new wife, Leilani Maria Mendoza, in 2018. The couple wed in a lavish ceremony at New York’s famed Oheka Castle. The bride wore a stunning gown embellished with 50,000 Swarovski crystals.
Since the wedding, Brian has helped raise Leilani’s two children, Julia, 23, and Jack McPhee, 20, from a previous relationship. And he spoils her and the children at every opportunity.
The couple recently announced that Leilani is pregnant and the whole family seems over the moon about the addition.
Well, the folks on Black Twitter have nothing to do with the fact that Brian seems to favor his Stet kids over his biological ones.
Brian’s post about the new BMW was shared on The Neighborhood Talk’s Instagram page after he allegedly blocked a fan in the comments for telling him to fix his family.
In a since-deleted comment, the person wrote, “Man you know well that’s not your daughter! ‘Estranger’ or not Brianna is your daughter! Please your biological children before it is too late!”
Another person countered, writing, “People see a fraction of someone’s life and want to give an unsolicited opinion… so these are the consequences of those actions… # BLOCKED.”
A third social media user said: “It’s none of our business other than the fact that he deliberately lists his stepchildren in his bio as if his bio children didn’t exist. That’s hateful af.”
Brian has previously denied allegations that he was a dead father who abandoned his black biological children for years. In a resurfaced video from 2019, he shared details about how he was in his children’s lives.
“I’ve never missed a day of child support. I have never done anything bad to my children. I was always there,” said the “Sister, Sister” actor. “I was always there with advice on whether they took it or not. I’ve always been the sounding board and I’ve always been the one who had to help them achieve the dreams they wanted to achieve.”
The former talk show host said he gave them “everything” he didn’t have with “hope they would appreciate it”. He also accepted the blame for giving his children “permissions” when they were younger and offering “tough love.”
“By the time I stopped doing everything for them, BJ was 25, Niko was 22,” McKnight said at the time. “And it wasn’t like I cut them off completely. That happened much later.”
