Kerrion Franklin, son of gospel artist Kirk Franklin is breaking his silence on the status of his strained relationship with his famous father.

Kerrion, who stars on Zeus Nerwork’s upcoming reality series Bad Boys: Los Angeles tearfully revealed that he and his family are still estranged.

In 2021 I reported on my Kris Avalon Show podcast that Kerrion was at war with his dad, and even played an audio conversation between the two where Kirk used in Christ-like aggressive language against his son.

Kirk has stated that he is estranged from his son, and has stated that he has tried to get Kerrion help for his personal issues, but didn’t exclose what those issues exactly are.

“I love my son and I have tried very privately to keep all of the areas that we’ve been working with him in counseling as a private matter. We’ve been having challenges with my oldest son for years. And again, as he’s gotten older, his disrespect has become more aggressive. But I’m confident that his mother, myself, Tammy, my family, there’s never been anything physical that concerns me, or even makes me uncomfortable because I know the truth, he knows the truth, and I love him and as a grown man I am still this dad and when it becomes aggressive, I still have to have a level of respect, I got to have – I’m still your daddy. And you – there’s still got to be respect and there can’t be levels of disrespect but I’m confident that there hasn’t been any physical abuse. I mean, we’ve had therapy and counseling sessions and documentation long enough to know that the deeper issue is, we’ve been just trying to help our son…”
