It wasn’t immediately obvious – well it was because he didn’t look like me. But it wasn’t immediately obvious what had gone down. Idris decided to have a paternity test done which revealed that his girlfriend, Desiree Newberry’s child was not his. WHAT? That’s a mess. Idris had this to say about finding out about the baby,
“To be given that and then have it taken away so harshly, was like taking a full-on punch in the face: POW. You know, the truth is—like, even admitting it, I’ll probably get laughed at for the rest of my life. But it is just tragic, and it happened. But I wasn’t knocked out. I stood right the f–k back up, and I ain’t aiming to take another punch in the face ever again. Do you understand what I’m saying? It happened to me. I moved on. I’ve not been an angel in my life, either – do you know what I’m saying? So to a certain extent, what goes around comes around. But for me in the future, I’m about being comfortable. That’s it.”
See fellas we gotta watch the ladies too! What did she think; she was just going to make him the daddy?
