Singer Ne-Yo has gained recent media attention over his recent paternity tests results from his ex-girlfriend Jessica White. According to court documents, Ne-Yo admits to demonizing the women in public to aid the selling of his records. White has filed a defamation of character lawsuit against the rapper as his stories have hurt her reputation. It is said that Jessica is now unable to gain employment, which will leave her unable to support her young son.
Ms. White and Ne-Yo had an intimate relationship at one time. She became pregnant, but informed the singer that he may or may not be the child’s biological father. Ne-Yo admittedly was not concerned about the infant’s possible biological connection and agreed to parent the infant without undergoing a DNA test. His name appears on the child’s birth certificate as the father and he named the boy Chimere. Ne-Yo’s birth name is Shaffer Chimere Smith. Before the couple parted ways, Ne-Yo supported White and the baby from 2004 to 2007. He also paid White a settlement in 2009, which included a privacy clause.
After the couple separated, he went on a public tirade claiming that White took the child to an unknown destination. White claims that Ne-Yo had the woman’s e-mail address and phone number but failed to remain in contact. The rapper went on to claim that White manipulated him into believing that he fathered the child. He says family and friends influenced him to undergo paternity testing. Documents indicate that White influenced the paternity testing and Ne-Yo complied.
The barrage of comments and defamatory claims against White by Ne-Yo include a continuous array of vulgar names and demands for money. Ne-Yo reportedly contacted White in 2010 in hopes of repairing their relationship. The singer’s repeated behavior destroyed any attempts at reconciliation with the woman and rumored child. White claims that Ne-Yo’s continued defamation constitutes a breach of contract while causing her emotional and financial distress.
Paternity suits remain a problem in today’s society. Statistics indicate that over 300,000 men undergo paternity DNA testing annually. Studies further suggest that only one-third of the men tested actually fathered the child. DNA testing requires at minimum a sample from the child and from the father. While at one time testing required blood samples, modern tests only require swabbing the inside of the mouth for cells that contain the DNA. By analysis, technicians identify the genetic information provided by each parent.
After isolating the father’s DNA, laboratory staff reviews the genetic material with a large database that compares the male’s sample sequence with a public database. The comparison then computes the probability that the man is or is not the child’s father. When requiring the test results for court cases, individuals must submit samples in front of non-biased witnesses. Attorneys may receive the subsequent results for submission to the court for determination.
