Just in time for Father’s Day weekend! Three men in Tennessee have notched up a staggering 78 children by 46 different women between them and NONE of them are paying child support.
Terry Turnage, seen below, has 23 children with 17 different women, while Richard M. Colbert has 25 children with 18 women. But Desmond Hatchett takes the record with 30 children with 11 women. We toldya all about him earlier this month!
On rare occasions, they pay a few dollars to the long-suffering mothers but mostly leave the state to pick up the slack – while one eludes his responsibilities altogether thanks to a stint in prison.
The latest deadbeat dad to emerge from the state is Turnage, seen below, who was summoned before a judge over child support payments for his 23 kids by 17 different women – but didn’t show up to court.
One of the baby mamas, LaToya Shields (seen below) who spent nearly eight years with Turnage, said her knees buckled when a prosecutor told her that the father of her child had 20 other children. ‘During the whole relationship, I only knew of four children,’ Latoya Shields told WREG. ‘At that time, three years ago, my child was the 21st child. Yeah, that would be overwhelming for anybody.’
Attorney Warren Campbell says if a person does not pay child support, the state ends up paying and there is no legal way to stop people from having children.
