PRODUCER and DJ Diplo has a long dating history with multiple women in and out of the spotlight.
As a result, he now has several young sons.
Who is Diplo?
Diplo, whose real name is Thomas Wesley Pentz, is a house DJ, songwriter and record producer.
Diplo comes from diplodocus from his childhood fascination with dinosaurs.
The Mississippi native is the co-creator and lead member of the electronic dancehall music project Major Lazer and a member of the supergroup LSD, with Sia and Labrinth.
He is also working with producer and DJ Skrillex as part of the electronic duo Jack Ü, as well as on Silk City with Mark Ronson.
Diplo is the founder of record company Mad Decent as well as nonprofit organization Heaps Decent.
In his long career, he has worked with artists like Gwen Stefani, M.I.A., Die Antwoord, Britney Spears, Madonna, Shakira, Beyoncé, No Doubt, Justin Bieber, Usher, Snoop Dogg, Trippie Redd and Chris Brown.
How many baby mamas does Diplo have?
Diplo has two baby mamas and three children.
Diplo has two sons – Lockett, 10, Lazer, 6 – with ex Kathryn Lockhart and a 7-month-old son with Jevon King named Pace.
Lockhart was working as a bartender when the pair met.
She now runs an LA-based children's event planning company called Electric Babyland, according to Bustle.
Jevon King is a Trinidadian model and beauty pageant titleholder who won Miss Universe Trinidad and Tobago 2014.
In an hour long Instagram interview with motherhood blogger Alexan Stewart, King claimed that Pace was conceived through in vitro fertilization or IVF.
When asked if she is still dating Diplo, she said: “We are great. He’s doing a great job. He’s a great father.”
Back in May, Diplo posted about his new son on his Instagram feed.
"So I had an entire ass baby during quarantine," he wrote.
"I was hesitant to post him because not only does he already had a better haircut than me.. But also because I havent met him yet since we are separated by a million miles and closed borders.
"His name is Pace, he and his mommy are super healthy and happy and I'm going to meet them as soon as we turn a corner on this world shutdown."
Why did a woman file a restraining order against him?
Last month, a woman filed a restraining order against Diplo, after claiming the DJ attempted to "distribute revenge porn" and "humiliate" her.
The woman's lawyer talked to the Daily Beast after her client – whose identity is being protected by the outlet – previously tweeted about how the music artist had allegedly groomed her then hired a private investigator after the pair argued.
According to the outlet, a Los Angeles woman filed for a restraining order against Diplo claiming it was necessary "to block him from distributing revenge porn designed to humiliate her and to scare other women out of coming forward."
The woman alleged he shared a picture of her vagina to "330 million Twitter users" using an anonymous account, which led to her being an "emotional wreck and in great distress and fear."
In new court documents obtained by The Sun, filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court, she said she had to see a psychologist and psychiatrist as a result of her stress.
She also accused him of allegedly filming their sex acts without her permission.
To make matters worse, the girl was allegedly underage.
Court filings claim she was 17 and he was 36 when they first met in the summer of 2014, after he reached out to her on Twitter and they exchanged phone numbers and Snapchat usernames.
