Lil Wayne Finally Breaks Silence On Paternity Rumors About A 15Yr Old Son
Lil Wayne is the latest celebrity at the center of a paternity battle. According to The Blast, a woman claims the “Stuntin’ Like My Daddy” rapper actually fathered her child, 15-year-old Dwayne whom she named after Wayne. The woman, Keiotia Watson of Louisiana, initially filed a paternity suit against the New Orleans-born rapper back in 2015. She claimed to have had sexual intercourse with Wayne in June of 2001 and became pregnant shortly after. The courts ruled in her favor due to a mishap on Wayne end.
A Default Judgment:
It has been reported that Wayne never responded to the 2015 paternity suit, which Watson filed to demand a court order stating that Wayne was the father of her son. In that suit, filed in August of that year, she also requested child support from the YMCMB rapper. When he did not respond, she requested so Watson filed for a default judgment that October. The judgment was granted and Wayne was ordered to pay $5,000 a month in child support and cover the child’s medical insurance starting in January of 2016. However, Wayne never began paying. Now, he’s finally responding to the legal situation and he has a totally different take on the situation.
Not My Kid:
Wayne has filed legal documents claiming he was never notified about the 2015 paternity suit. The rapper insists Watson received the judgment fraudulently and he argues that it does not prove he is the child’s father. He is now requesting that the court order a paternity test and halt the monthly support payment he’s been ordered to pay. In his declaration, he recalled the summer of 2001 and admitted he was living in New Orleans at the time. However, he insists career obligations took up most of his time which is why he doesn’t believe the boy is his.
“I did not engage in a sexual relationship with Keiotia Watson in June of 2001 or at any other time.” He added, “In June of 2001 I was residing in New Orleans, but my professional commitments required me to travel a great deal throughout the United States. I do not believe it is possible that I am the biological father of Dwayne Brown. I have never acknowledged Dwayne Brown as my son, nor was I ever made aware of his birth until I was served with the petition” filed in August.
Wayne went on to share details about his relationships with his four children, By now most fans know Wayne has always been active in his children’s lives and he’s gone on record several times proudly saying that he and the mothers of his children have never had a situation where the government has gotten involved. There has never been a need for “child support” because he makes sure his children are well taken care of. At the end of his statement, he said it once again. “I am the loving father of four (4) children, all of whom I provided support for since birth. Up until now, I have never been involved in a child support case.”
The judge scheduled Wayne’ hearing for next month and Watson has also been ordered to appear and explain why his requests should be denied.
