NEW YORK (AP) - Oxygen Media has pulled the plug on "All My Babies' Mamas," a reality special the network was developing about a musician who has fathered 11 children with 10 different mothers.
The network offered no reason for curtailing the project. In a statement issued Tuesday, Oxygen said that after reviewing the show's casting the decision was made "not to move forward."
The one-hour project would have featured Atlanta rap artist Shawty Lo, his children and their mothers.

"All My Babies' Mamas" was met with controversy after Oxygen announced it last month. At least one petition that called for Oxygen to shut it down has collected more than 37,000 signatures. The Parents Television Council called the concept "grotesquely irresponsible and exploitive.
In its statement, Oxygen promised to continue to develop "compelling content."
