The 'Back at One' hitmaker took a DNA test in a bid to clear up the case and now the results have shown he is not the boy's dad.

A DNA test has proved soul star is not the father of a teenage boy at the center of a legal battle over child support. A woman named Miriam Lee took the singer to court in Orange County, Florida last year claiming her 14-year-old son was the product of a brief fling with the star.

McKnight was ordered to hand over more than $340,000 in paternity payments after he failed to file court papers addressing Lee's lawsuit and a judge made a default ruling in her favor. The "Back at One" hitmaker subsequently took a DNA test in a bid to clear up the case and now the results have shown he is not the boy's dad.

A judge has now dismissed the case, according to TMZ.com.
