Man Signs Birth Certificate But Now Is One Of Several Possible Dads (Full Episode) | Paternity Court


You may be seated. Hello, Your Honor. Hello. This is the case of
Flowers v. Diaz.
Thank you, Jerome.
Good day everyone. AUDIENCE: Good day. Mr. Flowers, you have
brought your ex-girlfriend
to court today to prove that you are
not the biological father of her 2-month-old
daughter, Callie. Yes, Your Honor. You claim you were duped into naming the baby and
signing her birth certificate and now the DNA test will prove your case. Yes, Your Honor. Ms. Diaz, you claim that
it was Mr. Flowers’ jealousy and insecurity that drove you
to have sex with another man. But you are confident that
Mr. Flowers is your daughter’s
biological father. Yes, Your Honor. Now, waiting in the hallway
is Mr. Bowman, the man you cheated with. JUDGE LAKE:Who Mr. Flowers
believes is Callie’s dad.
Mr. Flowers,
please tell the court why you’ve claimed
a baby for two months who you don’t believe
is really yours? I gave her my name. You know, Callie,
then my last name Flowers. You’ve actually bonded
with Callie. You named her. Yes. I… Every time
I walk into the room she smile. Like, “Daddy is here.” Like…Oh, my daddy is here.
You know,
she smile, like big smile.You know, she…
She love me.
AUDIENCE:Aw!She really love me.So, it’s like, I can’t imagine
Callie not being mine. But you have doubt? Yeah, I have doubt.
Everybody’s gonna have doubt, if you’re sleeping around. And now, you believe
Mr. Bowman is Callie’s biological father. FLOWERS: I believe it.
But there’s more to the story she actually talking about. She liked to creep around. When I get her mad she like to slither away. She give me this some type of
attitude, like, “Oh, I don’t… I don’t wanna
be with you, we never gonna
work.” You know. Except for standing still
and saying, “Hey, let’s try to make
this work.” Stop trying to go to the
next man to find love ’cause your love
is right here. (AUDIENCE CHEERING
AND APPLAUDING) So, as you stand
here today, do you still love Ms. Diaz? Yes, swear on my heart. JUDGE LAKE: So, Ms. Diaz, you
say you have no doubt. No, Your Honor. Why is that? Explain. Um, the doctor confirmed
the time of conception was around the time that
I had sex with Mr. Flowers. We were the only two people
together at that time.Uh, which was the
first week of August.
And there could be no other
possibility, but Mr. Flowers.
So tell me about the nature
of this relationship. Me and Mr. Flowers have an
off and on relationship, a very rocky relationship. Met up again after high school
about three years ago. Although we love each other,
we don’t get along. We’re like oil and water. Uh, we fight, bicker
all the time and we’re better off
just as friends. And so is this true,
Mr. Flowers? On and off, oil and water? FLOWER: Yes, yes. Yes. Yes, Your Honor. So how do you see
the relationship? Were you committed? I’ve tried my best, you know. I feel like if somebody
lied to me the first time, you lost my trust. Straight up.
And I’m just being honest. I tried to give her a chance
after chance after chance, but I feel like
I were working too hard. And she wasn’t putting
enough effort in. And when you say she wasn’t
putting enough effort, explain that. You know how
you could feel that
love is in the air? At first. But then again it’s
like kinda drifting way because she talking to
another person. You could feel that.
Just imagine if you was
in my shoes. You know what I’m saying? What would you think and
how would you feel if you was in love
with two guys. FLOWERS:
You’d be confused too. JUDGE LAKE: And so you feel
like that’s what she is, in love with two people? FLOWERS: Yes. And that’s how you end up
here in this courtroom… FLOWERS: Yes, Your Honor. …believing you’re not
Callie’s father because
you believe this other gentleman,
Mr. Bowman is. FLOWERS: Yes, Your Honor. JUDGE LAKE: Tell me
about this doubt. (STAMMERING) I wanna know
specifically why you doubt that you’re Callie’s
biological father. Because, let’s be honest.
She sleep around. AUDIENCE: Ooh! FLOWERS: She sleep around.
So, in my head it’s like, “Do you want me to be there
because you know Imma be there “and you know Imma be
the good father? “Or are you just gonna use me
because you can’t find “these other dudes
to be the father?” So you think, she’s saying
you’re the father because you’re the steady Eddie. FLOWERS: True story. So, Ms. Diaz, he says you were
sleeping around. Were you? Is that true? Yes, Your Honor. JUDGE LAKE: It is. (AUDIENCE BOOING) And why are you convinced then
that Mr. Flowers is your child’s biological father if you admittedly were having
sex with more than one person? Well, I was in a rough, uh,
time in my life at that time. Um, and I felt like
Mr. Flowers wouldn’t
give me the support I needed emotionally,
or financially for us to be able to make
a relationship work.I’m sure that he is the fatherbecause me… I was only
with him
during the time of conception.And you submitted a calendar
to the court? DIAZ: Yes. JUDGE LAKE: I’d like to take
a look at that. And so, outlined in greenare the days your doctordesignated as the window
of conception.
DIAZ:Yes, Your Honor.JUDGE LAKE:So that would be
August 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th.
DIAZ:Yes, Your Honor.JUDGE LAKE:Moving on,where there is a blue ‘X’ are
the dates that you were
intimate with Mr. Flowers.DIAZ:Yes, Your Honor.JUDGE LAKE: Is this correct,
Mr. Flowers? Is this timeline accurate? Yes, Your Honor. JUDGE LAKE: Okay. JUDGE LAKE:In orange are
the dates you were
intimate with Mr. Bowman.DIAZ:Yes, Your Honor.(AUDIENCE MOANING) JUDGE LAKE:That would be the
8th, 9th and 10th of August,
which is the very next week.Yes, Your Honor. Now, that’s pretty close. Did you tell the doctor
that you had also had sex with another person the very next week? No, Your Honor. When I first found out
that I was pregnant and I called him
on his birthday. You called to tell somebody
on their birthday that you’re pregnant, but it
might not be yours? Yes, Your Honor. (AUDIENCE MOANING) I didn’t realize
at the time. JUDGE LAKE: That’s what you
heard on your birthday
that year, Mr. Flowers? I was partying.
You know what I’m saying? Like, (CHUCKLES)
then I get this call. I’m like, I haven’t saw this
number in a while. You know what I’m saying?
(LAUGHS) (AUDIENCE LAUGHS) I wondered what she want,
you know what I’m saying? Probably wanna kick it,
probably remember it’s my
birthday or something. And she’s like,
“I’m pregnant.”
I’m like, “What?” And so, when she said this
to you, did she say and you’re the father
or you are one of the
potential fathers? FLOWERS:
She said, “one of the
potential fathers.”She came straight with me.(AUDIENCE APPLAUDING) FLOWERS:Like, she was honest
with me with that.
Ms. Diaz, did you also
tell Mr. Bowman that
he was a potential father? Yes, Your Honor. And what was his reaction? Um, he wanted… He said,
“If that’s the case,
we’ll get a paternity test. “Uh, and we’ll figure it out.
And we’ll go from there.” And so, how does it get
to the point where you decide to jump onboard
and end up naming the baby? Because I got, you know,
emotional. I always wanted, uh,
you know, another child. Two kids. You know. And I wanted to be the father
my father had never been
to me. To prove it to him like,
“I am a better man than you.” (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING) FLOWERS: You know what
I’m saying? So you were actually at
Callie’s birth? Oh, yes. Oh, yeah. And were you involved at all
during the pregnancy, did you go to
doctors appointments? No, ma’am. Not a single one. Not a single one. So, during the pregnancy you
were with Mr. Bowman. Me and Mr. Bowman
were friends. JUDGE LAKE: And so,
during the pregnancy FLOWERS: What!he was around…FLOWERS:Hold up, hold up.
What!
Just friends? Nah, you ain’t
telling me all that. Y’all was saying,
“Oh, we did this and that, “he made me feel good and…” Me and Mr. Bowman
were never in a official relationship. But during the pregnancy,
you were with him. Yes, Your Honor. But then at the birth, Mr. Flowers was there. Yes, Your Honor. JUDGE LAKE: Why wasn’t
Mr. Bowman at the birth? ‘Cause I’m 100% sure
that Mr. Flowers
is Callie’s father. Based upon the time
of conception. FLOWERS: You know
why he wasn’t there? Imma tell you truth. ‘Cause they fell off. JUDGE LAKE: You signed the
birth certificate? Yes. I did. ‘Cause I stepped up
like a man. So now you understand that
under the law in the eyes of the law, you
are her legal father. Yes. And you understand if in fact
you’re found not to be her biological father, you will
have to return home and attempt to get your
name removed. All right. (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING) Ms. Diaz, has Mr. Bowman done
anything for Callie, is he a part of her life? Mr. Bowman has always been in
my life when I needed him. Um, he has provided diapers
when Mr. Flowers cannot. I thankful for that. ‘Cause I was going through a
rough time myself. You know what I’m saying?
I got much respect for him. Mad respect. (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING) You know. Jerome, I think it’s time
we meet Mr. Bowman. JEROME: Okay. Bring him in. (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING) Hello, sir. Come with me. I’m gonna bring
you right up to the witness stand next
to the judge. Go on the left of me. Mr. Bowman, thank you
for being here… BOWMAN: Yes, ma’am. …today. JUDGE LAKE: We are
here, of course, talking
about the paternity, uh, as it relates to
brand new baby, Callie. Ms. Diaz has admitted in court
today that she was intimate with you and
with Mr. Flowers about a week apart. Are you aware that you are one of the
potential fathers? Yes, ma’am. I’m aware. JUDGE LAKE: Do you believe
Callie is your child? No, I do not. JUDGE LAKE: You don’t? No, ma’am. You did have sex
with her right? We did have sex. Without protection? BOWMAN: Without protection. JUDGE LAKE: You understand
that’s how babies are made? (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING) JUDGE LAKE: You do? Yeah, I do. So I want you to explain to
me why is it you believe this child can’t be yours. During the time when the
baby was conceived when me and Ms. Mia had sex
I didn’t climax. Oh, well I walked myself into
that, didn’t I, Jerome? (AUDIENCE LAUGHING) Um, so this was one occasion that you all had sex… No, ma’am… JUDGE LAKE:
…without protection? It was multiple occasions. I can tell you that the first
few times we had sex right around the
time when they was
presumably conceived I didn’t climax. Okay, so you’re saying
the act did not finish. So, you believed
you couldn’t potentially be the father
because of that. And, Ms. Diaz, you did
tell him though that
there’s a chance he could be the father. Just a slight chance. Ain’t no such thing as
slight chance. You feel me? So don’t matter what you
go through you don’t know what happened. Right. I think what you’re
trying to state… FLOWERS: (STAMMERING) It’s… …which is true Mr. Flowers
is without even the finishing it is still possible… FLOWERS: Yes. …to conceive a child. Yeah. (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING) What I think is obvious
is that you have two men here that you slept with in very
close proximity. And then when you told your
doctor about the facts relating
to the conception you left
Mr. Bowman’s dates
off the calendar. DIAZ: Yes, Your Honor. And so the doctor
was only giving you
information based upon… My story. JUDGE LAKE: Right. JUDGE LAKE: And so, this day
means a lot to you,these results.FLOWERS: (STAMMERING)
Oh, yeah, this a major day.
One, because I always wanted
a daughter. And two, I am a good father. (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING) So the truth is, while you’re standing here trying to prove you’re
not the father. FLOWERS: Mmm-hmm. The real truth is you really would
love to be. FLOWERS: All right, man… If she mine, I would get down
on my knees and cry. You know what I’m saying? ‘Cause that’s my daughter.
I’ve been with her. Changed diapers middle of
the night. While she didn’t feeling like
getting up, I’m the
first one up. Even if I go to work, I still… In, like, two hours need to go to work,
but still bond with her. That’s my daughter. You know what I’m saying?
That’s my daughter. (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING) And, Mr. Bowman, your relationship with
Callie is what exactly? I really don’t have a
relationship with Callie. You don’t? (STAMMERING)
No. I know Callie. I’ve been aware of her
since she was born. I say about the first
seven-eight months of the pregnancy. I was there for her. I was the one rubbing
her feet, you know. Rubbing her back,
make sure she had finances. JUDGE LAKE: So what
happened after that time
where you just backed off? Well, it was understood that
there was a strong possibility that the baby wasn’t mine, so I had to give the
potential father a true shot. JUDGE LAKE: Understood. (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING) Are you hoping she’s
your child? I’m just hoping for closure. If Callie is my child,
them I’m gonna step up and
you know, be a father. Ms. Diaz, has anything
happened in court today that changes your belief that
Mr. Flowers is in fact Callie’s biological child? No, Your Honor.
I’m 100% sure he’s her biological father. I think it’s time
for the results. Jerome? (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING) Thank you. JUDGE LAKE: These results were
prepared by DNA Diagnostics and they read as follows. In the case of
Flowers v. Diaz,
as it pertains to 2-month-old
Callie Flowers. And whether Mr. Flowers or Mr. Bowman is the biological father, it has been determined by
this court… JUDGE LAKE: Mr. Flowers, you are not the father. (AUDIENCE MOANING) FLOWERS:
(CLICKING TONGUE) Damn! Mr. Bowman, you are not the father. (AUDIENCE WHOOPING AND
APPLAUDING) (AUDIENCE CHATTING
INDISTINCTLY) Ms. Diaz, is there something else missing from the calendar? (CLEARS THROAT) Um, the week after I was, uh, intimate
with another guy. Um, in July I was, uh, living
with another guy. JUDGE LAKE: Ms. Diaz,
that would make (SOBBING) four different men you
slept with within a span of a possible
conception period. Yes, Your Honor. It’s hard for me to
stand over here and look at a beautiful
young girl like you. You just giving
yourself away for free. AUDIENCE: Yes. (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING) I don’t know what you out
there looking for, but it’s not this. Do you know where these
other two men are? No, Your Honor. FLOWERS: Your Honor, that’s still my daughter.
You know what I’m saying? (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING) You know what I’m saying?
It hurts, but in my heart that is my daughter. JUDGE LAKE: In your heart and in the eyes of the law. Because you signed
that birth certificate. Oh, and um, I’m glad I did it. Because I don’t want her to
grow up without a father… …like I did. (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING) For someone you can’t
get along with, at the end of the day you
blessed to have him. (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING) But you know now, you been
in a hurry going nowhere fast. Right? Yes, Your Honor. JUDGE LAKE: You can’t keep
doing this. Right? DIAZ: Yes, Your Honor. All right. We have counseling,
we have resources for you. I want you all to get
the help you need so that you can help Callie. And I wish you the
very best of luck. Court is adjourned.

  1. Lord, I just pray my sons get blessed with a double portion of wisdom and good judgment these men don't have. Amen 🛐

  2. This whole situation is sad. I feel bad for this girl who’s obviously looking for love. Someone failed her in the worse way and it’s showing up now. Then you have these two brothers who I commend for being respectful of each other and the entire situation. No rude remarks, shade, railroading or disrespect from either party, but now they have to live the damage. I salute Mr. Flowers for still accepting the role as Callie’s Daddy because he was a Fatherless Son. I hope they all get counseling and learn how to move forward for Callie’s sake.

  3. She pretty and all but come on, she throwing that lil MEOW around like Mardi gras candy.. That calendar needed to be updated

  4. Low self esteem, what ever happened to all the dreams of a beautiful wedding? Just lay with any man that comes along. Even the marriage don't work out at least have a little pride.

  5. Why hasn't it been made a law for fathers to take a paternity test before they can sign the birth certificate?

  6. It's always good looking female that's trifling and full of STD!! +💩💩💩 💯😂LIGHT SKIN CHICKS 🐣 ESPECIALLY!!🤣watch em very good!!😂ms DIAZ🤢🤢🤢🤢🤣MGTOW 🙏🇬🇧😂

  7. I for one don't consider this woman to be "Nasty", however she went through a dark period in her life and looked for love in all of the wrong places. This could easily be anyone of us, male or female so therefore those who are without sin cast the 1ST stone !

  8. When there are two men and she doesn't say "so and so is the father" but starts reading names, I always guess neither of them are.

  9. OMG SHE WAS MURDERED IN 2017!! 😭 an ex boyfriend. These two ended up engaged… I can't believe it. I find so much tragedy in some of these cases

  10. I still can't process how these Ladies be hoeing around like this lady here. She fine looking but laying down with whosoever will then has the guts to air this out on national TV! You know there is men out here that would love and protect this beauty. TROUBLE

  11. Wawooo🤯..how could you not know as a mother?!..I'm just looking @ the mother and thinking; fear girls with glasses 🤦‍♀️🚶‍♀️

  12. Ooooohh so sad for this baby to have a mother like this..if you can sleep 4 different man every other week how many man with in a year? Repent lady this is a wake up call for you..

  13. Boy o boy o boyyyyyy I think I'm gonna be that hated mom that tells my son to get a paternity test b4 he signs the birth certificate.

  14. Mr. Flowers is a good man….and a good Daddy. Even AFTER he learns that neither he or the other man are the child's father, he is STILL willing to be her daddy so she doesn't have to grow up without a father in her life. That is a true man right there.

  15. I read that this young mother was killed by an ex boyfriend a few yrs ago. Guess she never got her life together 😔

  16. Smartness is important in a relationship and cyberhackinggenius helped cloned my husband’s phone and I got access to all his dealings both on phone and social media without touching his phone. All I did was share my husband’s phone number with cyberhackinggenius and I was able to read both his new and deleted messages from my phone without having to touch his phone. My husband was a cheating Narcissist and I’m glad to find out all his secrets and infidelity with the help of cyberhackinggenius. I’m here in UK and able to access my husband’s phone messages with a link on my phone even while he was away in Canada cheating on me. I got to discover that my husband who is legally  married to me here in UK is also recently married to another woman in Canada and I’m finally going through a divorce with lots of evidence against him. I read all his Whatsapp, Facebook,Skype,Instagram and Snapchat messages Including the deleted text and recent messages. You can contact this great Hacker Gavin via Gmail  (cyberhackinggenius) or text and speak to him directly on his phone and WhatsApp : +19256795146 and don’t forget to thank me later.

  17. If you gotta run to somebody else when you’re arguing with your SO, you need to be single and learn to love yourself 🤦🏽‍♀️

  18. So he signs his life away from believing her. And now hes going pay for another mans kid. She is trifling and she likes to be with bunch men . They a name for that and its not a good one. She wouldnt know what love is if it came up and slapped her silly. She thinks its funny being a hoe. She get something besides a baby one of these times she in bed with a man. 2 men tested and counting . She has no idea who the dad is. Shes using these men for money and to take care of her kid

  19. If she has to ask the doctor what was the window of conception you’re a hoe and there is more than one guy 😂 lol I have no idea when I got pregnant nor did I care to know when they told me I was pregnant 😂

  20. Dickesia looking so pathetic…how could you not want to be with a man who supports you & claim your dtr…even when he knows it's not his…such a how

  21. Married in 1 week….one of these guys will propose to her in 1 week. I sort of resent my mom for lying to me and telling me men don't fall in love with reckless women.

  22. These were some mature well spoken young men and woman. They all dealt with the situation respectfully. Don't see that often on this show! She should've just been honest from jump with them both and herself. SMH Sad situation. 😔

  23. My God 4 men in the same conception period? My Lord…Jesus what is wrong with her. She needs counseling. She should be thankful she only got a baby.

  24. As I can see most people aren t using they intution cause when you use your intution you will feel when a person right or not.

  25. No one have to tell you about a woman or man if you using your god given knowing intution you can feel when some one sneaking around on you and when their on the scene your gut feeling will kick in but people don t use the intutions this is why most get to be used.

  26. Dang this girl needs some guidance. She can’t even identify the other two men. She should be lucky to have Mr. Flower.

  27. Oh Mr Flowers we know what you’re saying!!! I feel you…. but stop saying you know what I saying!!!! 🙄🤦‍♀️

  28. Flowers: she still my daughter, in my heart
    Judge: in your heart and in the eyes of law

    Judge has the best one liners 😆

  29. Baddddd as I wanted to bash her 🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️I ACTUALLY felt sorry for her because this happens allllll the time girls looking for love and it neverrrrrr ends well 🤷🏾‍♀️I’m just happy the baby will have a great father in her life💯💯😊

  30. Nasty…. Truth will always set us free, just say there are multiple dudes,,, but don't be so confident sticking to one guy… She's shameful now…

  31. 50 seconds in and hoping he's not the father…jealousy lead you to cheat…nawwww that's an excuse…you cheated because you like to get around smh
