Diplo only sees his sons for an hour a day because he is making the most of his career success
Diplo's music comes before his children.
The DJ only sees his sons Lockett, four, and four-month-old Lazer - both of who he has with ex-girlfriend Kathryn Lockhart - for an hour a day because he thinks he needs to make the most of his career while he is still successful and will spend quality time with the boys when they are older.
He said: "I only see them an hour a day - I'd love to be home a lot more often, but I don't see myself having successful records like this for many more years - I'm surprised I'm still popular!
"I should make money while I can. In 18 years my kids will be happy when I can afford to send them to college.
"I'm only on this earth to make music so I'm going to do that as long as I can. Then I will spend time with my children, not wondering what I could have done."
And Diplo - who previously dated Katy Perry and MIA - denied having anything to do with his kids' unusual names.
He told NME magazine: "That's their mom not me. I only chose their middle names."
