Teddy Riley Attacks Daughters With Video Game
The producer/singer-songwriter's 18-year-old daughter Taja claims that she and her older sister where victims of "stomping, punching and bashing" by their father at his Los Angeles home on Dec. 23. According to documents filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Taja alleges that Teddy "lifted a Rock Band guitar and threatened to kill person(s) with it." She also claims to have suffered several injuries as a result of the altercation; "bashes to the temple," bruises on her face and pain in her knee. Photos of her bruises are floating around the 'net.
To add insult to injury both Teddy and Taja posted their feelings about the situation via Twitter. In a series of tweets one of Taja's (@tajariley) status updates read, "No Part of this family cares about a father who beats his daughters up "ABUSE is a very fickle thing, cuz now you left a mark." Teddy (@teddyriley1) then posted a comment saying, "You are so right. I did it for a reason, and I would do it again for them to get it. Don't disrespect the hand that feeds you or it will slap you right in the face." His twitter account has since been deleted.
Taja has been granted a temporary restraining order and Teddy Riley has been instructed to stay 100 yards away from her. Another hearing for the case is scheduled for January.
Teddy Riley is the father of nine children and is known for being a member of the group Guy and Blackstreet. He is also noted for his production with artists such as Michael Jackson, Madonna and Bobby Brown.
