Lil Wayne Denies He’s the Father of 15-Year-Old Boy in Paternity Case
Lil Wayne is the father of at least a few children, but he says none of them are named Dwayne Brown, a 15-year-old boy whose mother Keiotia Watson believes the Young Money boss fathered him almost 16 years ago. Now, Weezy's demanding a new trial in the paternity suit filed by Watson.
According to The Blast, Watson filed the paternity suit against Weezy back in 2015. She says she had sex with him back in June 2001, and as a result, got pregnant with her son Dwayne, whom the site reports she named after Weezy's government name, Dwayne Carter.
In August 2015, Watson went to court and demanded both a legal document stating that Weezy was Dwayne's legal father and child support payments from the rapper. Apparently, Weezy never responded to the case, and she filed for a default judgment a couple months later in October of that same year.
From there, a judge granted Watson's motion and ordered Weezy to pay $5,000 of support a month, while also covering the teen's medical insurance. These payments were set to begin in January 2016.
Now, in some newly filed documents, Wayne claims he was never served with any legal papers, so he never showed up for any of his court dates. He also says Watson secured her judgment through fraud and that the allegations are false and don't prove he's the father of her son.
Weezy is asking the court for a paternity test and to have his payments put aside until the results are confirmed.
In a signed declaration, Weezy says that, although he was living in New Orleans 16 years ago, he never had sex with Watson in June 2001, or at any other point in time. He says his business across the country made it impossible for him to have fathered Dwayne Brown. “I did not engage in a sexual relationship with Keiotia Watson in June of 2001 or at any other time
"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” that was filed this past August. Weezy adds that he is, “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 set a hearing for next month and has ordered Watson herself to show up and explain why, exactly, he should grant her motion.
