In November, Marlon opened up about his trans son during an appearance on “The Breakfast Club.” 

He revealed his plans to release another stand-up special tentatively titled, “Skittles” or “Rainbow Child,” which is about his “daughter who transitioned to a son.”

“My daughter Amai (Wayans) is now Kai and so I talk about the transition – now their transition – by my transition as a parent going from ignorance and denial to complete unconditional love and acceptance. I think there’s a lot of parents out there that need to have that message and I know I’m dealing with it.”

Marlon Speaks Out

Speaking exclusively to TSR, Marlon Wayans had a lot to say about the paternity suit against him.

Marlon explained this is a case of a baby mama going for the gusto when it comes to child support. 

It’s a classic case of a good, loving, responsible father shelling out over $18,000 per month for a one-year-old, and an entitled woman who decides she wants more. My mama and nem would’ve lost their minds for $2,000.”

He also noted the baby isn’t a secret… he just kept her out of the public eye to protect her peace.

All love, all GOD. The baby isn’t a secret. The mama has been posted. But I chose to keep the baby’s private life private. Ain’t nobody’s business. Social media is toxic and dangerous, and I’d like to keep her peace.” 

When asked about visitation and if he plans to fight for joint custody of his daughter, Marlon Wayans said: 

Do you pay all that money per month and be called a ‘visitor?’ Do the math. This is delusional. I will let the lawyers and God do what they do. I’ll be creating art from a broken heart. I got nothing but love. Even when it’s bad, it’s good…it’s GOD.
