Paternity Scandal: Davido, Jay Z, Snoop Dogg & Other Celebrities Who Allegedly Have ‘Illegitimate Children’
Davido has declared himself the public enemy, and this is all thanks to his recent paternity drama after an Ibadan woman, Ayotomide Labinjo, alleged that he is the father of her 3-year-old daughter.
Recall that the story of the alleged third child surfaced over the weekend, after Ayotomide’s family publicly called out the singer for abandoning his child. In her narration to Punch, Ayotomide said she briefly dated Davido after he visited Ibadan in 2013. They maintained contact but he cut her off after she announced her pregnancy. He allegedly reached out to her again but blocked her off his contact list yet again, this time because she was demanding for child welfare.
Ayotomide’s family contacted Davido’s family and a DNA test was carried out to ascertain the child’s paternity. Though the result turned out negative, Ayotomide’s family accuse the singer’s family of foul play, alleging that they bribed the clinic.
Well, Davido thinks this is all a plan to milk him of the N30 billion he bragged about having in his account. “OBO PUBLIC ENEMY NUMBER 1 .. no be today.. I’m used to it .. 😇.. make dem continue .. the higher powers coming together to bring me down! It’s too late God don write my story,” he said on his Instagram yesterday.
Well, the singer is not the first artiste accused of having and denying a child. See other stars who have been put on blast for having illegitimate children:
2. American footballer Chad Javon Johnson (aka Chad Ochocinco)
Last night, Chad Johnson got embroiled in a new paternity scandal after a mystery woman shared a photo of the daughter she allegedly had with the footballer.
In her note to the beautiful daughter, the woman talked about how her child is loved by the footballer, even though Johnson is yet to acknowledge the child. The note triggered a huge conversation online, with many people wondering if this ‘scandal’ is the reason the footballer recently called it quits with his partner, Barbie Bates.

3. Janet Jackson
In February, the old allegation that Janet Jackson has a secret daughter was resurrected again by Etterlen DeBarge, the mother of Janet Jackson’s ex-husband James DeBarge, who claimed she has a DNA result backing her claims.
The story came just weeks after Jackson welcomed her son with Qatari husband Wissam Al Mana, but it was immediately shut down by Etterlene’s daughter Bunny, who spoke up in the singer’s defence, saying it is not true that the legendary singer bore a child for her brother.
Shortly after, the alleged daughter – Tiffany Whyte- came forward, alleging that she is the secret daughter of the pop icon.
Jackson has refused to address the claims since the news surfaced.
4. Jay Z
For many years now, Rymir Satterwaite has tried to get the attention of music boss Jay Z after Rymir’s mother Wanda alleged that the rapper was the father of her son.
According to Wanda, she had a relationship with Jay Z which produced a son. Many years later, she was forced to take the music boss to court after he refused taking responsibility for the alleged son. She allegedly tried to get him to take a paternity test that would prove her story, but the Jay Z allegedly stalled this move, and as at 2015, Wanda and Rymir were unable to keep going to court; they couldn’t afford to pay the lawyers.
5. Snoop Dogg
Snoop Dogg has yet to publicly claim his alleged son with former high school lover, Laurie Holmond.
In his 2016 interview, the alleged son Julian Broadus, who shares a striking resemblance with the rapper’s legitimate children, said Snoop Dogg accepted him after paternity was established. Julian’s mother said the rapper took responsibility of the child, but later the relationship went sour.
Speaking with Famelous last year, Julian said he no longer hurts. “I’m almost a grown man so my mind isn’t as heavy as it used to [be],” Julian said of how he feels about the failed relationship. He also revealed that he loves poetry and intends to go into music like his father.
