Following the rapper’s claim in a series of social media posts that Soulja Boy’s one-year-old son could be his child, a woman is suing Blueface for defamation.
On Friday (12.22,) Jackilyn Martinez, who shares a young son with Soulja Boy, filed her complaint in Los Angeles Superior Court. alleging that her attorneys sent Blueface a cease-and-desist letter on Tuesday (12.19,), but that he “callously and mockingly” took to Instagram with “Nobody even said your name.”
According to the filing, Martinez stated that while she did have protected sex with Blueface one time in 2018, she has had no further interaction with him since. “There is zero chance that the defendant is plaintiff’s child’s biological father.”
Born Johnathan Jamall Porter, the defendant’s series of social media posts state that he had sex with Soulja Boy’s “baby mama the day before your baby shower,” giving the date of the shower as June 11, 2022. “Might be my kid he ain’t even get the DNA test,” he allegedly wrote in another post listed in the lawsuit.
Martinez claimed that she later received multiple death threats on Instagram from unknown people after she posted the cease and desist to Porter, “We gun in u down,” one post read, according to the complaint. “When u in the grave I’ll make sure you baby Alr,” read another purported threat.
Jackilyn’s filing states “Plaintiff is gravely concerned for herself and her child’s safety and well being, and plaintiff is extremely nervous and afraid to go outside and/or be in public.” She said the allegedly defamatory statements paint her as “promiscuous” and “unfaithful to the father of her child.” Martinez alleged Porter has not retracted or removed the statements from social media, and she believes he made them to promote his career by “engaging in a feud” with Soulja Boy, whose legal name is Deandre Cortez Way.
Martinez’s claims include defamation, false light, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence. She’s asking for real and punitive damages, attorney’s fees, and a permanent injunction barring Porter from defaming her.
