Claim that Rick Ross Fathered Child in Florida put to Rest
On behalf of The Law Offices of Cindy D. Sackrin posted in Paternity on Friday, July 20, 2012.
It was only a few months ago, at the end of 2011 when a woman came forward and claimed that founder of Maybach Music Group, rapper Rick Ross had fathered her child. The woman filed a paternity suit in Florida late last year to determine conclusively whether the man was or was not the boy's biological father.
In the woman's suit, she claimed that the rapper had impregnated her over three years ago. She claims that he immediately left her without making good on his responsibility to pay child support for the now 3-year-old child. In order to force the rapper to pay the child support that the woman claimed she was due, she had to first prove paternity in a court of law.
From the first mention that he could be the father of the child, the rapper denied the accusations. He claimed over and over again that there was no possible way in which the child could be his. He even offered voluntarily to submit to a paternity test. The rapper eventually did take that paternity test and the case has now been closed after the results showed that he was not the father of the child.
Although this case probably caught the attention of the news media simply because of the father's status as a public figure, the situation is in no way uncommon. In order to use the court system to force a person to pay child support or to enforce visitation or custody rights, paternity must first be established, and one of those ways is the route taken in this case.
