What Happened to Kirk Franklin and His Son Kerrion Franklin?

July 12, 2023

Gospel musician Kirk Franklin and his estranged son Kerrion Franklin continue to be the talk of the internet after a new audio leak makes some shocking claims about their relationship. Earlier this year, Kerrion shared a clip of a heated conversation with his father where he heard Kirk cursing out at him. The conversation went viral and many were surprised to hear the "Stomp" singer use profanity during the phone call with his oldest son.

In the clip, Kirk can be heard saying things like “b--h ass” and “put my foot up yo’ ass” to his son. He also calls his son “liar” and tells him that he’s going to jail for lying to a grand jury. Despite the controversial clip, Kirk apologized and explained that his relationship with Kerrion is toxic.

However, the rift between the two seems to have escalated as Kerrion recently posted a picture of a family Christmas photo on social media and there was one person missing from the image — his father Kirk.

The two have been estranged for a while and Kerrion even accused his dad of molesting him in a since-deleted Instagram post back in 2018. He's also spoken about his strained relationship with the singer in more recent posts, saying that he's been estranged from the family for years and that he's always declined invitations to dinners and holidays. Despite this, the 'Bad Boys: Los Angeles' star doesn’t seem hopeful that he and his father will reconcile anytime soon.
