Hold up…wait a minute…
The lawyer for Eric Garner‘s 2-year-old love child is demanding that his children take DNA tests before dividing his $7 million settlement.
Lorraine Coyle, who represents 2-year-old Legacy Miller, made the shocking demand during a closed hearing on Wednesday.
Coyle claims she’s doing her “due diligence” because she does not believe Esaw Garner‘s reason for leaving her husband’s name off of their children’s birth certificates.
Esaw claims she had kicked Eric Garner out of the hospital because he was “getting on my nerves” when she was going into labor and added that as for the birth certificates, “It didn’t make any difference to him, he knew they were his kids.”
Jonathan Moore, the Garner family’s lawyer, seemed shocked by what he called an “offensive” demand.
“Why do that when there’s no reason to do that?” Moore asked the New York Daily News. “Everyone knows they are his children.”
“I don’t think she (Coyle) would have said this if the Garner family had a different complexion,” Moore said.
What a messy mess.
