STATESBORO, Georgia (AP) — Chris Rock has asked a Georgia court to start paternity proceedings to determine if he’s the father of a 13-year-old boy whose mother tried to file a paternity lawsuit against the actor and comedian last month.
Now realize Rock didn’t have to do this. The court had thrown out the original claim by the mother because Rock is a New Jersey resident. So he could have waited until the justice system finally hunted him down, as they will Ed Murphy, but he decided to be pro-active on his possible children. Weird, eh? Actually wanting to know if the kid is yours, and wanting to provide financial support (emotional support, at this point, 13 years later, seems far fetched) if it is. This is almost like an adult decision, and I don’t know what to make of it.
Chris Rock, we salute you!
