With the release date for Lil Wayne’s Carter V album appearing foggier than ever, the “Fireman” MC might have bigger issues on his plate. According to TMZ, a woman named Keiotia Watson alleges that Wayne is the father of her 15-year-old son and that Weezy owes her child support.
In the legal papers filed by Watson, she and Wayne had a sexual relationship in June 2001. In February 2002, she gave birth to her son, Dwayne — who she named after the Young Money rapper. In an attempt to get Wayne to pay child support, Watson appeared in court in 2015 to battle her claim and won. The judge ordered Wayne to pay $5,000 a month. According to Watson’s claim, this has been something he has failed to do since the decision was made.
TMZ also reports that Wayne’s reluctance to pay Watson stems from that fact that he was never notified about being the father of Dwayne. In addition, he never received any legal documentation solidifying Watson’s claims. The source indicates that Wayne is willing to take care of the child in question if the paternity test returns back positive.
Wayne currently has four children, by four different women.
