Lil Wayne is the father of four children. But does he also have a fifth child that he didn’t know about until recently?
Back in October 2015, a Louisiana woman named Keiotia Watson filed a paternity suit against Wayne and claimed he was the father of her 15-year-old son Dwayne. She took Wayne to court and asked a judge to grant her a court order naming Wayne as the boy’s legal father. She also asked the judge to award her with child support payments, and when Wayne failed to respond to the case filed against him, Watson filed for a default judgment and the judge in the case ordered Wayne to begin paying her $5,000 every month, beginning in January 2016. Additionally, the judge called for Wayne to provide the boy with medical insurance.
But Wayne is now contesting the court order and saying that the boy is not his son. According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Wayne claims he was never properly served with legal papers pertaining to Watson’s paternity case, which is why he didn’t respond to it and show up in court. Wayne also claims the allegations Watson made in her original complaint against him aren’t true. He doesn’t believe they definitively prove he is Dwyane’s father.
In light of the most recent developments in the case, Wayne is calling for a court order of his own demanding a paternity test. He also wants the court to set aside child support payments until the results of the paternity test come back. He has even gone as far as to sign a declaration that says he "did not engage in a sexual relationship with Keiotia Watson" back in June 2001 when Watson claims she hooked up with the rapper and got pregnant.
"I do not believe it is possible that I am the biological father of Dwayne Brown," Wayne said in his declaration. "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…I am the loving father of four 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 in Wayne’s paternity case has called for a new hearing to take place in February. Watson has been ordered to attend and will be asked to tell the judge why the motion from Wayne should not be granted.
