You would think Diplo has nothing else going on with all the time he’s devoted to taking cheap shots on Twitter at Taylor Swift and Lorde, but apparently in the midst of all his pettiness, he became a dad with his ex-girlfriend, though he’s currently dating Katy Perry.

The DJ and music producer, whose real name is Thomas Wesley Pentz, reportedly just welcomed a second son named Lazer Lee Louis Pentz with his ex, Kathryn Lockhart.

As a side note, Gossip Cop became aware of Diplo and Perry dating around May, though they could have been together earlier. That means, at worst, there could have been some overlap with him impregnating Lockhart while dating Perry or, at best, the DJ leaving his ex-girlfriend when she was at around the end of her first trimester of pregnancy. Hopefully, Diplo will take a break from attacking other artists and clarify on Twitter which scenario it is.

In the meantime, as Gossip Cop has reported, Diplo has seemed focused on needlessly attacking Swift. As you’ll recall, he tweeted, “Someone should make a kickstarter to get taylor swift a booty.” And after Swift’s friend Lorde defended her by writing “@diplo should we do something about your tiny penis while we’re at it hm,” the new father shared a photoshopped image to make it appear that Swift had tweeted, “Taylor’sAss is trending!!” along with his own comment of “You go girl.” Diplo’s beef with Swift seems to tied to speculation that her song, “Bad Blood,” which tells the story of a singer who tries to sabotage another performer’s tour, is actually about his girlfriend Katy Perry.

Diplo obliquely mentioned his son’s birth in a tweet on Saturday that read, “the mad decent Boat party wuz crazy now I’m going home to meet a new member of my family.” The new dad followed that up with another tweet, showing two women’s tattooed butts. Anyway, Gossip Cop congratulates Diplo on the birth of his son.
