Court Orders Lil Wayne To Take DNA Paternity Test
Lil Wayne is about to find out if he really is the father of 16-year-old Dwayne Brown through a DNA paternity test.
Lil Wayne's Fifth Son
In 2015, a woman named Keiota Watson from Louisiana filed a paternity suit against Wayne whom she claims is the father of her teenage son. She asked the presiding judge to grant her a court order naming the rapper as the boy's legal father and award her child support payments.
Because Wayne failed to respond to the case, Watson filed for a default judgment that ordered Wayne to pay $5,000 every month beginning January 2016. Additionally, the judge ordered the "Sucker for Pain" rapper to provide medical insurance for the boy.
Now, however, Wayne is contesting the court order. In documents recently obtained by The Blast, Wayne is demanding a new trial in the paternity case filed by Watson.
He claims that he never received the legal papers and therefore, was not able to show up to court and defend himself. He also accused Watson, saying that the woman obtained the judgment in favor of her by fraud.
Wayne also stated that her complaint was false and he is not Brown's father.
In addition, the Grammy-winning rapper requested that the court order a paternity testing and to set aside the monthly child support.
"I did not engage in a sexual relationship with Keiota Watson in June of 2001 or at any other time," the 35-year-old declared in a signed document. "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."
He also argued that he has been financially supporting his four children. The judge has set a hearing next month and ordered Watson to explain why Wayne's motion should not be granted.
A source added that, if proven he is the boy's father, he is willing to take full responsibility and pay child support. Wayne fathered four children with four different women.
Lil Wayne Releases 'Vizine'
Despite his legal battle, Lil Wayne still finds time to create new music. This week, Ethika, Inc. released "Vizine" from the mixtape RGB Mixtape 2 due this year.
In the song, he took a jab at Birdman.
"No one man should have all that power if he can't afford to pay the light bills," he said at the beginning of the song.
He was probably alluding to the Cash Money Records founder's recent financial troubles. He also previously accused Birdman of refusing to surrender documents involving fellow rappers Nicki Minaj and Drake.
