Rapper questions paternity in child support case

What began as a legal battle over child support between a famed rapper and the mother of his alleged child has now sprouted into an issue of paternity.

New Orleans residents witnessed the events unfold when police in Louisiana issued a warrant for the arrest of a rapper that goes by the name Juvenile. The mother of the rapper's 13-year-old son was calling in all the unpaid child support, which she claimed was around $160,000. Once the warrant was issued, the rapper emphatically denied the charges and said he has always been a good father who provides for his child.

However, Juvenile recently dropped a bombshell in the case when he claimed that he did not know if he was truly the biological father of the 13-year-old child. New court documents showed that the rapper wants to take a paternity test to determine if he is the child's father.

The rapper argued that he never officially established paternity when the child was born. He also pointed out that he didn't sign the birth certificate at the time of the child's birth, either.

The claims include allegations that the mother of the 13-year-old child was involved sexually with at least one other male at around the time the child was conceived. Despite being unsure about the child's paternity, Juvenile claimed that he was forced into child support agreements.

If results confirm that the rapper is not the biological father of the child, he said he expects to be released from the current child support agreement along with demanding back all the money he paid in child support for the last 13 years.

Whatever the results end up to be, a 13-year-old child is in the center of this. A parent who is questioning or needs to confirm the paternity of a child should request a DNA test soon after the baby is born. Otherwise, the relationship between the child and the father may seriously suffer.
