Rapper Lil Durk has broken his silence after his 10-year-old son allegedly shot his stepfather during a domestic dispute.

Lil Durk, whose real name is Durk Banks and has 10 children – five girls and five boys, made a cryptic comment on X, early on Monday morning. 

‘Save that money for them kids kids kids kids kids,’ he tweeted, in a possible reference to the drama his child appeared to be at the center of. 

Joshua Pippens shared surveillance footage of the moment he was allegedly shot by his stepson who is thought to have been protecting his mom 

He’s since been sharing various updates to social media, including a bombshell claim that the child who allegedly shot him and two others have been removed from their mother’s care.

A document from the Indiana Department of Child Services posted by Pippens suggests the agency recommended the boy’s mother, Travonna Collier, no longer be allowed to care for the child.

Meanwhile, Pippens and Lil Durk, the boy’s biological father, have been recommended to be allowed unsupervised visits with the boy.

Despite ending up in the hospital and requiring surgery, Pippens has since said that he still loves the boy as if he were his own.

‘I still love him like he’s mines,’ he wrote in a post explaining how the incident occurred.

‘My gun was on my hip and I was trying to protect myself from getting shot,’ he recounted. 

‘As y’all can see I was not the aggressor,’ Pippens said. ‘And y’all also can see how I still had my gun on my hip. He grabbed my gun off my hip following his mom’s lead and tried to shoot me and then actually shot me. 

‘I never in a million years thought a kid I bought 4 wheelers and paid for football leagues and everything would do this but he only knows what mom shows him I still love him like he’s mines,’ Pippens wrote in an Instagram story.

Pippens also suggested that the argument involving himself and the boy’s mother may have been about custody arrangements over a child the couple share.

‘Whatever makes y’all feel better. That’s why I got custody of my kids and she don’t. Y’all so internet think [sic] god it was me that took the shot and not her,’ he wrote. 

‘Listen, nobody is going to jail or they would already be there. I’m doing this for rights over my kids. Call me what y’all want. And on top of that, this was at my momma’s, in front of my momma, granny, and more kids. I pray y’all make it through y’all situation that God gon’ put y’all through for playing with me,’ Pippens added. 

In the document from Indiana Department of Child Services further details are shed on how the July 1 brawl unfolded as the boy returned to Pippens’ mother’s home, just before 9pm.

When the child arrived, both Collier and Pippens were already arguing outside the home. It led to the child urging his mother to stop fighting.

The boy then got out of the car and pushed Pippens, according to the document.

The youngster confirmed to police that both Collier and Pippens had guns ‘but hers didn’t go off.’ 

The child told officers that Pippens had been trying to get the gun away from Collier before explaining how his stepfather’s gun fell to the ground during the struggle.

The boy admitted in the document that he picked up the gun and shot Pippens in order to protect Collier, his mom.

The boy later said that he was scared she was going to get shot.

When asked by police if there had been any domestic violence in the past, the boy claimed to officers that the pair would yell a lot at one another.

He said that his mother would ‘get really mad, really fast.’

In video footage Pippens, seen in orange, can be seen attempting to try to restrain the child’s mother, wearing purple. 

In the middle of the fracas, the child, wearing a red t-shirt and shorts, aims what appears to be a gun directly at Pippens. 

The video then cuts as the brawl spills over from the sidewalk and into the middle of the street as the couple continue to argue.

The child then points the weapon at Pippens as a single gunshot rings out. 

Pippens can then be seen falling to the ground after being struck by a bullet.
