Freed From Jail, Lil Wayne Faces Paternity Battle

November 11, 2010 (2:35 am) GMT
Court papers have been filed, claiming the recently-freed rapper is the father of an eight-year-old boy from a woman living in Missouri.

Newly-freed rapper is facing a paternity battle following his release from jail - a Missouri woman filed court papers during his incarceration alleging he fathered a child back in 2002. The hip-hop star was released from prison last week after serving eight months of a year-long sentence on weapons possession charges.

In August, while he was in jail, he was served with a legal letter demanding he submit to a DNA test to determine whether he fathered an eight-year-old boy with an unnamed Missouri woman. The child's grandmother obtained an order from a judge which required the "Lollipop" hitmaker to take a paternity test before September 10, but as the star was behind bars at the time, the deadline was pushed back until December 9, according to TMZ.com.

Lil Wayne already has four children from previous relationships.
