A Brooklyn teen accused of beating his 16 months old daughter within an inch of her life never wanted the sweet little girl born at all. As comatose Nylah battled to survive Tuesday, her dad’s online rants from around the time of her birth surfaced, with Shaquan Taylor ripping into his daughter’s mom over her decision to have their child. “Feel mad disrespected,” wrote Taylor 19 years old in a February 2016 post around the time his daughter Nylah was born. “Told that lil b—h to get abortion and she tells me she is but still keep it. Exactly why I hate that lil b—h.” The helpless child remained in critical condition for a third day after the Father’s Day beatdown that left toddler with multiple skull fractures, bleeding on the brain and a black eye.
Nylah needed a blood transfusion after arriving Sunday at Maimonides Medical Center. Officials feared the battered child would not survive the attack, but she kept fighting Tuesday. Taylor griped frequently via Facebook about his troubled relationship with girl’s mother, Tammy Lewis. “I didn’t even want to have a baby by her and it’s sad to say, but f— it, s— happens. Please don’t ask who Nylah’s moms is nor do I still f— with her cause NO. Just f—-d (that) hotty a–, that’s it. She really getting me aggy” he wrote, which is slang for agitated.
Lewis’ Facebook was filled with pics of her beautiful daughter and occasional pot shots at the girl’s dad. “Worry about your child & not me WTF,” Lewis wrote on February 10, 6 days before Nylah’s first birthday.
“I hate every single relationship. I just hate ya all” read a February 5 post. Despite the long-lingering animosity, dueling parents agreed that Taylor could spend some time with the tot on Father’s Day at his Coney Island apartment.
Dad and daughter were alone together when 17 years old Lewis received a Facebook message telling her there was a problem with Nylah and she needed to come to apartment. The critically injured child was fighting for breath when mother arrived Sunday and Tammy grabbed the girl and stormed out of the apartment.
Cops told Taylor chased the pair down to the lobby, where he flattened the mother with a single punch as she clutched their little girl. An EMS crew arrived and grabbed Nylah, rushing the girl to Maimonides as Taylor continued to chase and beat teenage mother. Taylor denied beating his daughter, initially claiming the child fell of bed before changing his story to say she fell off the toilet. Either way none of the girl’s injuries are consistent with a fall. Taylor remained held on $250,000 bail Tuesday, when he marked his 19th birthday behind bars. Just last month, the deranged dad happily mentioned his upcoming birthday to his Facebook friend. “Bday in 21 days” Taylor wrote, along with several “sly smile” emojis. Taylor was instead charged with felony assault, acting in a manner injurious to a child younger than 17 years old. He was also charged with beating Lewis.
