The singer’s 18-month-old son Amen’Ra is still being held in foster care after six months. Syesha previously said that her son was “forcefully and legally kidnapped” after she took him to the hospital for fluids while transitioning from breastfeeding to the bottle because of her pregnancy.

Syesha‘s partner Tyron Deener said in the new video, “We’ve got Ast with us. We want to say thank you. We still got work to do to get ‘Ra back. Thank you — because of y’all we had the proper support to get the best attorneys in the country.”

The couple’s GoFundMe page has raised more than $430,000, including donations from celebrities like Kate Mara, Rooney Mara, and Shailene Woodley.
