Court documents reveal Omarion Humphrey's living conditions prior to foster care

Posted: Updated:
PONTIAC, MI (WNEM) -

The court appointed attorney for Omarion Humphrey and his siblings described their living conditions at a court hearing two weeks ago as a case of abuse and neglect.

But now we are learning the extent of that of the abuse and neglect.

The I-Team has discovered the state of Michigan filed these very serious allegations to build their case for putting the kids in foster care.

Among the accusations we filed in court documents, the state claimed:

  • There were 17 people living in the Humphrey home
  • Children crawled through air vents from room to room
  • The home had broken windows covered in plastic and was infested with gnats and flies
  • There was very little food in the home
  • Six children of the children were forced to sleep on the floor

Specifically about Omarion, the documents claim that his parents Khisha and Jamell Humphrey didn't participate in special needs meetings and that Omarion was not bathed or clothed properly. They add that Omarion was often ridiculed for poor hygiene.

At the last court hearing in Oakland County and in follow up interviews, the Humphreys defended themselves at least in part.

"We had a bad landlord, and the house wasn't adequate," Khisha Humphrey said.

Jamell Humphrey said, "They had issue with the care for Omarion. The teacher explained that he came to school dirty a few times, and she was worried. They came out to our house, and they didn't like the way our house was. We've been going through financial troubles just like anyone else. We lost our house and we had to move somewhere."

Another court hearing is scheduled for later this week.
