The mother of missing toddler Quinton Simon shared her struggles with motherhood in videos on her TikTok account, where she also once lip-synced a song about being the “bad guy.”
Leilani Simon, who is the prime suspect in her son’s disappearance, posted a video in March 2020 in which she sang along to Billie Eilish’s song “Bad Guy.”
“I’m that bad type. Make your mama sad type. Make your girlfriend mad tight. Might seduce your dad type. I’m the bad guy, duh,” the lyrics go, prompting several users to slam the clip.
“Well if this ain’t the most accurate tiktok I’ve ever seen,” one user wrote.
“Most appropriate song …,” another added.
In another video, Leilani took part in a challenge in which users are asked questions about various topics and are supposed to put “one finger down” if they answer yes to any questions.
“Put a finger down if you’ve ever used your kids as an excuse to get out of something,” was one prompt that led to her putting her finger down.
She also put her finger down for other questions, including whether she had ever said “potty” instead of “bathroom” while speaking to an adult, and admitted to crying in her closet.
The mom also put her finger down and laughed when asked: “If you’ve considered running away to another country but you’re a good mom so you really wouldn’t do it but it sounds nice.”
Her last TikTok video was posted in May 2020.
Police have announced they believe 20-month-old Quinton — who disappeared from home in Savannah on Oct. 5 — is deceased.
Leilani hasn’t been arrested in the case, but authorities have named her a prime suspect in the case and said they didn’t know her whereabouts late last week.
She first reported her son missing at 9 a.m. the day he disappeared.
He was allegedly last seen at the home she shared with her boyfriend as well as Quinton, her 3-year-old son, and her parents — who have legal custody of both children.
Leilani reportedly told dispatchers she believed someone took her son from his playpen while she was sleeping. However, at 5:30 a.m. that day, she had texted Quinton’s babysitter and told her not to come.
The investigation into Quinton’s disappearance became criminal in nature last Tuesday, shortly after Leilani’s mother told police she did not trust her daughter.
“She hasn’t always done the right thing,” Billie Jo Howell admitted in an interview.
