As Radar first reported, the legal issue that was holding up Kerrion's ability to bond out was filed in Orange County, Cali. The 2007 criminal case accused the Zeus reality star of falsely representing himself to an officer, possession of a purported government-issued California driver's license and possession of alcohol while under 21. He agreed to show up to court but then blew off the hearing. A warrant ended up being issued and Kerrion is listed s a "fugitive."

For his part, Kirk hasn't said a word about his son's legal issue or his appearance on the reality star Bad Boys: Los Angeles.

Kerrion didn't hold back during filming and finally addressed rumors of his sexuality. Kirk and Kerrion are not on good terms and have not been since the reality star leaked an audio recording of his father berating him.

In the clip, the gospel singer can be heard berating his son and calling him a “b---- a—” and threatening to place his foot up his “a--.”

"He never played that part of the recording,” the singer added in a statement released after the recording went viral.
