In the entertainment industry, one sign that you are starting to make it big is when people from your past start turning up to ask for money or help with their career or even to claim that you are the long-lost father of their child. It may seem almost inevitable that many celebrities will have to contend with paternity allegations as they grow increasingly famous.

Although most men are devastated when they turn out to not be the father, it makes sense that if, out of nowhere, you are slapped with a paternity suit for a kid that already half way grown up, you’d be relieved to find out that you are not really the dad. Rapper Slim Thug was extremely happy after he received DNA test results that confirmed he is not the father of a child conceived 11 years ago, despite the mother’s allegations. The 33-year-old rapper’s real name is Stayve Jerome Thomas.

Slim Thug slept with an unnamed woman in 2002, before his music career took off. After his unnamed accuser took him to court last year, his bank account was frozen. The rapper took the intelligent, legal path to ensure that, if he was truly going to support this child, and maybe become part of his life, then he needed a paternity test. Eventually, the court agreed, and mandated that the mother bring in the child for a legal DNA test.

Not long after that, his lawyer called to give him the news: the DNA test results proved that Slim Thug was definitely not the father. He now enjoys access to his money again, no longer lives under the shadow of a lawsuit, and, I’d like to think, has a cleaner conscience about not having missed out on a decade of his kid’s life.

Becoming a famous rap star won’t make you immune to paternity suits. It just makes your legal battles more likely to become the object of public scrutiny. For all concerned parties in situations where fatherhood is not 100% certain, a paternity test is the ideal method to settle the issue. It’s objective, scientific, and painless.
