Layzie Bone has dated
- LaTonya Howse – Layzie Bone is reported to have started going out with LaTonya Howse in the 90s. Layzie got married to her in the course of their relationship. It is reported that their marriage lasted for 4 years and they got divorced in 1999.
- Felicia Lindsey (2007-Present) – Layzie was in a long time relationship with Felicia Lindsey, who was a singer with Mo Thugs, by the time they got married in 2007. He proposed to her in October 2007 at the premiere of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony’s new movie I Tried. After casually posing for a couple of pictures on the red carpet, he got down on his knee to pull out a 5-carat cushion diamond ring. Although she rarely speaks in public, but in an exclusive interview with Medium, she revealed that it was very difficult to deal with his infidelity. She was devastated and the fact it was very much in the spotlight, made it even more difficult for her to cope. Layzie and Felicia have one child. Overall, Layzie is the father to 3 children (apart from one mentioned in paternity suit) – Steven, Tyrone (died), and Jeremy. There are some sources that claim Felicia has five children from previous relationships. But these claims can’t be verified.
- In 2013, an unnamed woman filed a paternity suit against Cleveland native. She alleged that he had got her knocked up during their affair. It was revealed in court documents that she felt Bone was the father of her child, who was one and a half years old at the time of filing of the court documents. He hadn’t responded even thirty days after the filing of the lawsuit, which meant the court could officially declare him the father of the child without DNA test. Also, as there hasn’t been any development about a lawsuit over the years, it has been alleged that Bone might have reached out of court settlement.
