Lil Wayne Accused of Fathering Another Child

| No TrackBacks

Lil Wayne just got out of prison last week, but the rapper is already involved in another legal dispute. This time, the legal drama involves a Missouri woman claiming that the hip-hop artist is the father of her 8-year-old child.

The Toronto Sun reports that the woman filed court papers over the summer, demanding Lil Wayne to submit to a DNA test. The rapper was initially supposed to take a paternity test before September 10 of this year. But because Lil Wayne was in prison, the deadline was pushed back until December 9.

According to FindLaw, the rapper was sentenced to do time in prison after pleading guilty to second-degree attempted weapon possession in the state of New York. While he was sentenced to a year in prison last March, the rapper was able to get out early for good behavior. If Lil Wayne is found to be the father of the Missouri child based on paternity testing, the rapper could be ordered to pay child support. He could also be involved in other family law matters, including the right for the child to receive inheritance. Lil Wayne reportedly already has four children of his own from previous relationships.

Paternity testing is not necessary if no party contests paternity allegations. However, in the state of Texas, people will often hire a Houston family law attorney when there's a dispute on who the father of a child is.
