Feuding: M.I.A., 37, and Benjamin Bronfman, 30, over custody of their son Ikhyd. Seems like just yesterday the fiery British-Sri Lankan rapper was performing, stupendously pregnant, at the Grammys, but that child is 4 now; and it’s been more than a year since she and the Seagram’s heir ended their engagement — and now it’s turned bitter. The New York Post reports that he’s gone to court to prevent her from leaving NYC with their son; she, in response, went on a Twitter rant claiming that the Bronfman family “want to take my child away from me. What kind of [expletive] is that?” — but later, of course, deleted the messages.
