Love & Hip Hop star Moniece Slaughter shared a story about her biological father disowning her for the choices she made in life, including coming out as a bisexual.

“Introducing my biological father, Mr. Michael Lloyd Slaughter. You won’t find him on ig…I can’t even find him in real life,” the reality star wrote under a side-by-side photo of herself and her dad on Sunday.

So every time I’m live with my mom @marlatalks & you guys swear I look just like her. Don’t get me wrong. My little mommy is a Beaut ❤️. But If you ask me, this guy & I are twins (aesthetically). Yup. You guessed it. Introducing my biological father, Mr. Michael Lloyd Slaughter. You won’t find him on ig…I can’t even find him in real life 🤷🏾‍♀️. But you can find him on FB. He disowned me 🙄. First for reciprocating the extreme disrespect he’d unjustly bestowed upon my mother. Then because he didn’t want anyone to associate my brother Kyle, and my sister, Lauryn, with me because of my portrayal on reality tv. Lastly for coming out. I used to feel so hurt. Then I felt angry. Then I felt slightly empathetic. Now I feel literally nothing about the matter. It took a while. Then I released. Relieving him of his moral obligation & God given right (he had no legal rights), to love & be there for me. Relieved him of the freedom I’d given him to be in my son’s life ( he was in and out because he told my BD that he didn’t like me, & he’d been going behind my back to get to kam through dreux. But obviously never consistently enough). Moral of the story you ask? He helped make me. He didn’t raise me. He loved me in the only way he knew how. It just wasn’t the best for me. I realized that it wasn’t my fault. I didn’t ask to be here. I didn’t get to pick my parents. It wasn’t my loss. It was his. I’m the child, whether I’m 3mo. or 32yrs. He’s the “parent.” It’s NEVER my responsibility to make him feel wanted. It was always his job to show me I was wanted by him. That I was loved by him. He just didn’t know how. But God had something bigger & better in his will for me. And I was very loved, indeed. Not only by my mother. But by my Father, Dave @davetake6. A heavy presence in my life. My son’s life. And everything that we do & are. I wanted for nothing.

Moniece proudly showed off her same-sex relationship with AD Diggs on Season Four of Love & Hip Hop Hollywood in 2017, and the couple’s breakup spilled onto social media in July 2018. She was previously in relationships with B2K’s Lil Fizz, her son’s father, and fellow reality star Rich Dollaz.

In the lengthy caption, Moniece expressed the emotional toll of being shunned by her father, writing:

“I used to feel so hurt. Then I felt angry. Then I felt slightly empathetic. Now I feel literally nothing about the matter. It took a while. Then I released. Relieving him of his moral obligation & God given right (he had no legal rights), to love & be there for me.

But God had something bigger & better in his will for me.”

In conclusion, Moniece gave thanks to her mother and Dave, the man who stepped in to be a father for her and a presence in her son’s life.

She currently appears on Season Eight of VH1’s Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, which airs on Mondays at 8 p.m. ET.
