Three men in Tennessee are being highlighted in the media for making an unbelievable 78 babies with 46 different women. The courts are saying that even though these men have an amazing number of kids, none of them wants to pay child support.
Terry Turnage has 23 children with 17 different women, while Richard M. Colbert has 25 children with 18 women. Desmond Hatchett is the king baby maker with 30 children with 11 women.
Turnage was told to come to court to take responsibility for his children, but failed to show up. Latoya Shields, who dated Turnage for 8 years, said that she lost it when she found out about all of the other mothers and children.
“During the whole relationship, I only knew of four children,” Latoya told WREG. “At that time, three years ago, my child was the 21st child. Yeah, that would be overwhelming for anybody.”
Turnage recently filed a petition with Shelby County Juvenile Court to get his child support payments lowered, but never came to the hearing. Shields says that he never shows interest in his daughter.
“She calls him and it’s a ‘hi’ and ‘bye, see you later’ type of situation,” she said.
She says that she only gets between $6 and $9 checks in child support, when she gets anything at all. Desmond Hatchett, the 33-year old from Knoxville with 30 kids by 11 women, pays about $1.49 per month.
We won’t bore you by telling you more details of these deadbeats. We would rather encourage you to watch the interview with Etan Thomas (below), who wrote a book about the great fathers in the African American community. The three men in this article are nothing like the rest of us.
