(Newser) – Things have gotten pretty ugly between rapper MIA and her babydaddy and ex-fiance Benjamin Bronfman: After MIA allegedly threatened to take son Ikhyd to London, Bronfman got a temporary restraining order to make sure she can't, sources tell the New York Post. All three are currently living in Brooklyn, where the 4-year-old attends school, and MIA—who was served last night—now can't take him out of the borough, TMZ reports. The rapper had a Twitter meltdown yesterday accusing Bronfman and his family of trying to take Ikhyd away from her, Radar reports. A few of her tweets, which were of course quickly removed:

  • "BEN you cant take my son away from me ‘The mother' . Just because you have money doesn’t mean you hav ethe [sic] right ."
  • "Every child needs the MOTHER , I GREW UP WITHOUT A DAD . If grew up without my mother i wouldnt be here"
  • ".WOW. THE BRONFMANS WANT TO TAKE MY CHILD AWAY FROM ME . WHAT KIND OF S--T IS THAT ? THEY NEVER SEE HIM ."

A meltdown?? Hahaha far from a melt down. I'm so glad people don't hear me when I can't find my matching high heel shoe when I'm already 5 minutes late for work OR when I'm in traffic and have to pee! I have melt downs! She sounds like she's just venting.
