According to legal docs obtained by The Blast, the Dedication 6 rapper is flat-out denying the claim that he is the father Keiotia Watson’s teenage son because, as far as he’s concerned, he never slept with her in the first place. She says that the pair had an amorous encounter back in June 2001, but the emcee is making moves to clear his name. From The Blast:
“In the newly filed docs, Wayne says he was never served with the legal papers and that’s why he never showed up to court. He claims Watson obtained the judgment by fraud, saying the allegations in her complaint are false and do not prove he is the father.
Wayne is requesting the court order a paternity test and to set aside the monthly support.
Wayne signed a declaration in which he says, ‘I did not engage in a sexual relationship with Keiotia Watson in June 2001 or at any other time’.”
