Teddy Riley joins Jada Pinkett-Smith’s “Red Table” to discuss his co-parenting relationship with his youngest son’s mother, Mykal Theo Riley.
The New Jack Swing innovator tells Pinkett-Smith and her co-hosts, daughter Willow Smith and mother Adrienne Banfield-Norris, that the two struck a deal that he “lived by.”
Riley claims he “didn’t read” part of the agreement that says who will get physical custody of their son. He also addresses the part of the child support agreement that states a certain amount that was expected to be “halved” once his son started first grade.
“So she doesn’t want you to see Mycal about child support?” Pinkett asked.
“Exactly,” Riley replied.

The Grammy-winning producer took to Instagram in July to open up the details of his custody battle.
“Today is my little son’s birthday and I haven’t seen him in over three years,” Riley began. “I have done everything I should do financially and mentally as a father but because this woman has acted in a nasty way I have to deal with the government’s corrupt ATL system just to see my son but that will work out change everything.”
