Romeo had major success early on with the release of his debut album Lil' Romeo, making him the youngest person to have a number one spot on the Billboard 200 at the time. These days Romeo balances an acting career, music, and is gearing up to star in a reality show with his father, Master P.

The rapper-actor has nothing but love for his mom Sonya Miller despite the fact that she's suing him in an effort to prove that Master P, Romeo's father, is using their child to hide money. Romeo shared a heartfelt message on Instagram, saying:


"Today I should've been in bed resting/rehabbing my hip but instead I was in court all morning due to my mother's greedy lawyers (fyi although I'm being sued by my mom I still love her more than anything on this planet). I'm not here to get in details, because we all are going through something that is gonna make us a lot stronger one day, but I just want to remind you that #greed has taken the whole universe, and nobody is worried about their soul. Money will tempt you. Money will turn you into a slave. Money will corrupt the people around you. But most importantly, money will come and go!"

Many people wouldn't be able to get through a situation like this without resentment, kudos to Romeo for holding no ill will.
