Someone Call Maury!
Jamie Hope had been accepting child support from Kenneth Samuels since 1997, despite suspicions that another ex-lover, Oba Wallace, was her kid’s father. As the kid grew up, a strong resemblance to Mr. Wallace emerged and eventually, it became obvious enough that Samuels petitioned the court for a paternity test to establish custody. Although Mr. Samuels had sent child support for the past 11 years because he felt he had no reason to doubt he was the baby daddy, the test proved once and for all that he wasnâ€™t in fact the father. The court ruled that Mr. Wallace and Ms. Hope should repay Samuels for all his payments over the past decade, which totaled $14,460. Whoa, having kids in Georgia is cheaper than a fuel efficient Prius! This whole debacle made us think of Maury Povich and his awesome “You Are Not The Father!”-episodes. Check this guy out! [Note: The dude in this Maury Povich clip isn’t any of the people mentioned in this story, we just thought it was funny. — Editor]
