Oops! Someone may not be the amazing father he says. Though rapper Lil Wayne says he’s the “loving father of four (4) children,” he may have left one behind. According to court documents filed by Louisiana native Keiotia Watson, her son Dwayne Brown is actually a Carter.
However, according to Mr. Carter himself, that’s a no-go.
Watson’s 2015 paternity suit went unacknowledged, so she filed for a default judgment nearly two months after her original filing. A judge granted the mom’s motion late that same year, ordering the New Orleans rapper to pay a sum of $5k per month along with Dwayne’s medical expenses.
The payments, which were supposed to begin January 2016, never reached Watson or her teenaged son.
Nearly a year after the fact, the Tha Carter IV artist is finally responding to Waton’s allegations. Wayne alleged that he was never served court documents, which is why he never appeared in front of a judge to plead his case. According to recent documents obtained by The Blast, the father-of-four is dragging Watson — who claims to have slept with the Young Money rapper in June of 2001 — back to court.
The Very First
Alongside alleging that Watson got her verdict fraudulently, Wayne also said that she has no proof that he’s father of 15-year-old Dwayne. He’s requesting that his monthly payments be paused and that the court order a paternity test.
“I did not engage in a sexual relationship with Keiotia Watson in June of 2001 or at any other time,” the rapper’s signed declaration reads. “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.”
After revealing that he was never made aware of the 15-year-old’s existence until now, he asked the court to look at the track record he has with his other children: Reginae Carter (19), Dwayne Carter III (9), Cameron Carter (8), and Neal Carter (8).
“I am 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 document continues.
The judge has set the hearing for February, so Watson has a month to form her argument against Weezy’s top-notch attorneys. It’ll be tough, as the rapper already posed a pretty valid point: He’s never been called to court for not finically supporting his offspring.
Not for lack of trying though.
Back in 2010 — while Wayne served eight months at Rikers Island for gun charges — a case sounding eerily similar to this one hit headlines. The then-8-year-old’s grandmother Brenda Brown got a judge to order Lil Wayne to submit to a DNA test. According to Brown, her daughter and the rapper may have had relations that led to her grandchild’s birth in 2002.
“The Court on its own motion having moved this Court for an Order requiring the child, and the alleged father to submit to one or more genetic marker or DNA (Buccal Swab) tests by a laboratory,” read the TMZ-obtained papers. The documents, which didn’t even name the child’s mother, did not explain why the mom wasn’t seeking the test herself.
Brenda Brown has yet to reappear, leading everyone to assume that Wayne and the child weren’t a match.
