That’s what one woman is saying…hmmmmm
R&B singer and former “Celebrity Apprentice” star Brian McKnight is said to be the father of a teenage boy. TMZ.com is reporting that a judge in Orange County, Florida has ruled that McKnight is the father of Miriam Lee’s 14-year-old son. Lee filed paternity and child support paperwork last year alleging that McKnight was the father. The vocalist never addressed Lee’s claim in court, and the judge went on to determine that the child was McKnight’s responsibility. McKnight is now on the hook for 14 years of back child support, which amounts to 341-thousand-640 dollars. He is also required to pay more than eleven-thousand dollars in monthly support. A rep for McKnight tells TMZ, quote, “The judgment in Florida was a default judgment made without Brian present. He’s still looking to establish paternity, and is awaiting the results of a recent test.”
Brian McKnight’s last release was 2009’s “Evolution of a Man.” The record peaked at number three on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. Wow, if this is true Mr. McKnight is going to have to put out a whole lot of cd’s to pay this bill.
