Famed gospel singer Kirk Franklin and his 33-year-old son Kerrion Rashad don’t seem to be getting along very well these days.
Kerrion, who has been estranged from his family for years, released audio of an extremely heated argument between he and his father
In the video, Franklin could be heard yelling “I’ll put my foot in your a**” as Rashad responds “I dare you”
Franklin could later be heard yelling “I will break your neck ni***, don’t you ever disrespect me” at the end of the video.

In an Instagram post, Rashad blames his father for their broken relationship.
This is why I’m done. No father should speak to their children like this. If I have any issues it’s because Of this type of treatment that ii deal with behind closed doors. Hanging up in my face, No apology, no compassion, no effort. Stop telling me to go home to my family I don’t even know where they live. I don’t think I’ll ever trust my father to be alone around him ever again. I didn’t want to do this. I probably won’t release the entire recording because it’s too embarrassing that Im even dealing with this. No matter what ppl think I pray my dad deals with his deep hatred toward me. I don’t feel safe around him at all. This recording is recent it is not from 2018 just to clarify. Im going to learn from these experiences, live my life in peace and make beautiful art
Update: Franklin issued an apology for losing his temper in the phone call.
