It happened to Justin Bieber in November. A mentally unstable woman, with multiple sex partners (that didn’t include Justin), lied and said he was the father of her child. Justin didn’t take that allegation lying down. His team jumped on it and forced a quick end to the lies. But what happens when you don’t have any money, or worse yet, when you want to believe it really is your baby.
We hear a lot about “deadbeat dads.” A whole industry has grown up around forcing dads to pay child support. But if a woman lies and says you are the dad when you’re not, the same institutional machinery that grinds up and spits out deadbeat dads can steamroll right over the wrong guy and his entire real family.
