According to old reports, the Jenkins patriarch then punched his son in the face, dragged him to the bedroom, and continuously pounded him. Afterward, Jesse threatened to kill his child.
The R&B artist’s son reported that his father told him,
“I will kill you. I will put a bullet in your head right now … If I could get away with it, I would kill you.”
Jeezy’s son said he tried to escape his father’s attack, but the South Carolina-born singer locked him in a stairwell with the help of a bodyguard.

Fathers Day wit my Lil man nothin better! #itsthaworld
Shyheim, Jeezy’s second son, was 13 years old at the time of the incident and therefore a minor.

Jeezy, who is now 44 years old, admitted that he pushed his son but claimed that he never physically hurt him. The reason for the confrontation was that Jeezy was talking about how his son should not have been a punk kid with an attitude.
