Paternity documents surface in disputed family case

46151390_S.jpgA musician faces legal challenges, and the results aren't yet clear. One woman claims that the man, the popular rapper Offset, is the father of her 2-month-old baby. He disputes the paternity and the documents that have popped up on social media. If found to be the father of the child, the man will have certain parental rights and responsibilities. Missouri fans of the rapper will likely want to follow the story as it develops. 

Offset, also known as Mr. Kiari Kendrell Cephus, recently became a father with his current beau Cardi B. Then the claims that he was the father to another child started to swirl on social media. Late last year, Instagram model Celina Powell came forward to claim that Mr. Cephus was the father to her child.

Unfortunately, the woman has a history of falsely making claims of being pregnant by other famous musicians. This fact caused some to doubt the authenticity of her claims. She posted documents on social media that she alleges are the results of a DNA test, proving that Mr. Cephus is the father. Fans of the rapper have spoken out on various social media platforms to say that they think the documents are fake. 

Offset has denied paternity and also sent a cease-and-desist order to the model before the documents surfaced. Now that the paternity letter is online, it looks like he may have some more questions to answer before the issue can finally be put to rest. Being the father of a child comes with certain rights and obligations, so it is important to have accurate information about the parents. A person in Missouri facing claims about whether he has fathered a child may want to seek the help of a seasoned attorney in order to settle the matter.
