Vada Wamwene Mescudi, Cudi’s daughter, was born in March 2010. Cudi was in a custody battle for his daughter all through 2012. There were rumors that Cudi gave up custody of his child because the child’s mother said he was violent and had a “long history of consistent drug and alcohol abuse.” In a statement, Cudi and his lawyer denied these claims.
They said that Cudi did not give up custody and that a drug test he took on his own came back negative. He also had proof that he had been helping his daughter financially.
