Dancehall artiste Mr. Vegas child custody trial postponed until April 23, 2013.
The child custody trial involving Dancehall/Reggae megastar, Mr. Vegas has been postponed.
Originally scheduled to commence on Monday, the trial was set to begin the process of determining whether Vegas, or his ex-girlfriend, Shellian McBayne would win full custody of their two-year-old daughter. However, the case has now been postponed until April 23 after McBayne reportedly failed to show up for the hearing, which took place at the Bronx County Family Court in New York.
Vegas has been campaigning in recent months that he should receive full custody of their young daughter after she allegedly witnessed her mother, McBayne, being intimate with another man inside the prominent singjay's Florida home. He later claimed in subsequent interviews that McBayne secretly wed in the United States, meaning their child had been born in wedlock and that he had no legal rights to the baby.
Vegas has since sold the aformentioned home and is auctioning off furniture from the residence as part of his Turning Dust Into Bricks charity.
Later this month, Vegas is expected to release his first book, Bare Tingz, a cheating novel based on this alleged incident.
