State drops complaint against Lil Poopy's father
BROCKTON, Mass. (WHDH) -- The state has dropped its complaint against the father of Lil Poopy, a young rapper whose videos prompted an investigation by Brockton Police.
Child Protective Services were investigating the 10-year-old’s family for possible neglect and abuse after the videos surfaced, showing the child slapping a woman’s behind, among other things.
In a statement, DCF said, “After a thorough investigation, the department did not find evidence to support the allegations of abuse or neglect.”
Lil Poopy, whose real name is Luie Rivera, has a large following and has performed with big-name stars.
Lil Poopy’s family reacted to the news Thursday night.
“[I feel ] good [about the outcome of the investigation]. And happy that it’s over,” said Luie Rivera. “He’s the best dad. The best dad a kid can have.”
“There was never a reaction. My son was never neglected. You serious? You guys don’t see him on the videos? True Religion, Gucci Louis…Where was the neglect there?” said Luis Rivera, Lil Poopy’s father.
“It’s a complete vindication. I’m happy for my clients that it’s over. I’m still very angry that it went this far,” said Joseph Krowski Jr., Lil Poopy’s attorney.
Lil Poop’s father says the boy is a regular kid who likes baseball and is a good student.
“Last year I was student of the month -- twice,” Lil Poopy said. He went on to say he wants to be “the illest rapper alive” when he grows up.
