During the brief split that Damon and Aja had taken, the reality star had taken some time to stir some real-time romance with the NBA star, ending her with a baby bump.

Only that her baby Xavier came to the world when she had reunited her ties with the "Let's Be Cops" actor Damon.

When TMZ interviewed Damon Wayans Jr. about how he felt about all this commotion, he replied,

“I really have nothing to do with Aja's situation. We both live completely separate lives, aside from co-parenting."

Damon defended his daughters, as it may cause them some problems in the future, saying,

"My concern are my daughters and that they don't get hurt in any of this."

Adding on,

"love their little brother and that's all I care about."

But after the dramatic twist in Damon's life, Aja and Damon have been leading their separate lives. 

However, the recent tabloids hit the news about Wayans filing for full custody of his daughter to his baby mama after alleging her not taking care of his kid's education seriously.

The Basketball Wives star Aja, receiving financial support from both Damon and Dwyane, has reportedly put her wishes ahead of her children.

The Happy Together star has been said to have declared his primary custody of his daughters claiming that they have been suffering in the school of "abitually absent" or tardy to class because of his ex-girlfriend, Aja's " inability to prioritize their education."

He also further claims about his baby mama leaving his two girls alone to care for their four-year-old half-brother Xavier.

With that power statement, Damon told the court that:

“I do not know how [Metoyer] spends the child support moneyshe receives from me or the father of [Metoyer’s] other children, a 4-year-old whose father is basketball star Dwayne [sic] Wade.”
