Fake It ‘Til You Make…A Baby (Full Episode) | Paternity Court

Please be seated. Hello, Your Honor. Hello. This is the case of
Watson v. Mahoney.
Thank you, Jerome.
Good day, everyone. AUDIENCE: Good day. Mr. Watson, you are in court to prove that you are not the
biological father
of the defendant’s four-year-old son, Kevin. You say that while
you were away, Ms. Mahoney was having sexual
relationships with two different men and either of them could be
the father. Yes, Your Honor. Ms. Mahoney, you say you are
99.999% sure that Mr. Watson is the father
and deny his accusations of infidelity. Is that correct? Yes, Your Honor. So, Mr. Watson, you say today’s results
will determine the future
of your relationship. Yes, Your Honor.
It will, um… I’ve known her since
we were kids. If… We need to get
these results because you know, we are engaged
and I would like to marry herand I really hopethis is my son.JUDGE LAKE:And you say
the relationship’s
on the line,
meaning if the results
don’t turn out the way
you would like, the relationship,
the marriage, everything… It’s out the window,
Your Honor.
It’s over with. Really? Yes, ma’am. Ms. Mahoney, how is this paternity doubt
affecting your child? Hard. He takes it hard.
He looks up to him a lot.Sometimes he gets
real short-tempered
with him and…
He just, like, kind of…
He’ll sit by him and… He’ll move away and it’s hard
as a mother to see that.
And Kevin’s four? So, he understands
this rejection. Yeah, it takes him
really hard. He kind of…
He’s sheltered now. And so, Mr. Watson, you are rejecting the child? Yes, Your Honor. I’m not the dad, that’s why. When I… When I was away… When I came back. She was cheating and… She has a bad reputation
of being, basically, as I’m gonna
say it, the neighborhood hoe. (AUDIENCE GASPS) Okay, we gonna try to use
respectful language, but… Let’s say, she had
a reputation of being very promiscuous. Yes. Yes, Your Honor. Okay. And so, you were away
and you came home. What did you find
when you came home? WATSON: She had two men
staying with her and… They were showering her…
Showering her with gifts. And taking care of her.
Now, me as a man personally, I’m not gonna do that
for no woman… Being a man, though,
you shouldn’t have left me. I never left. Ms. Mahoney, did you have
two men living with you? Yes, ma’am. You did? I had no job. (CRYING) I had nothing to fend
for myself. They were close
family friends. And they just wanted
to help me, help them. WATSON: No, they weren’t. I agreed to let them stay
and I if I needed a… Some toilet paper, down…
You know anything. They would help
provide it. And so, were you providing
them with anything besides a place to stay? A bedroom.
That was it. I would not… JUDGE LAKE: Mr. Watson, you are shaking your head.
You don’t believe that? They were… They were not
close family friends. That is not true,
Your Honor. I’ve known them
since I was 13. That ain’t no family friend.
13, nothin’. So, did you ever ask him are you sleeping with… Yes. Your Honor. Oh. You did? Yes. And what was his response? He said yes. There’s been many girls
doin’ it to the same… We have a problem where,
there’s lots of people that
were in our life, tryin’ to split us up. So, he said he was having
sex with Ms. Mahoney? Yes. You confronted her
about that? Yes, multiple times. What did she say? And when I asked him…
I told him we can go together
in front of this person and ask them and he doesn’t wanna… But when I say let’s go in front of him,
she never does. He doesn’t wanna
do that. He stalls out. That’s not true. (CRYING) Our family
is on the line. And I just hope we have… So, why was… Why was… Why would
that other guy say
he’s the father? He says that’s my son. There’s a difference
between a father and a dad. Just know that. What you mean? He the one
talkin’ about that’s his kid. He provided for him. Okay, I was away. I couldn’t. When I called you
and he was hungry… Then what? I was away. I could…
There was nothing I could do. Like I said, there’s
a difference between
being a father… Okay, so if he was my…
If he was my kid, so bring
other men around my kid? Mr. Watson, I do wanna
make a clarification. Did he say he was
the biological father? Or did this man say
he was stepping up
to be a father? No, he said that… No. Pretty much, Your Honor. He said that was… He takes that
how he wants. He said
that was his kid. And that he’s in love with her
and that’s his girl. He always says that.
Even to this day he says that,
Your Honor. That is true. He has said
he loves me. And he’s in love with me. But like I’ve said, I cannot
control somebody
else’s feelings and as long as I’m doing
what I’m supposed to do
as a woman to my family, there is no reason. None. And I’m just so ready to get
all this… But, Ms. Mahoney… Why would a guy say to you… I believe he probably
does love me. But I don’t love him
and I needed help
and all he wanted was a room. That’s all. But why would he say
you were having sex with him if you weren’t? Because he knows that if he were
to tell him that. That he’s gonna walk out
and he’s gonna leave me. And that’s what happened. So, you’re saying, he just
kept saying that to break
you apart. And I’ll be crying,
you know, upset… You know, cover me. And I don’t want that.
And I don’t want anybody else
with Tevin. It was basically crazy
and, like… Her friend, you know…
Her and her friend fell out. You know, and the friend
called me one day and was like I wanna…
I wanna tell you everything. And she basically
told me everything.
How she was… What she did was lie to you
because you and her had
sexual intercourse. No… Did you not? No. We did not. She… No.
That did not happen? No. We did not have sexual… What did her friend tell you,
Mr. Watson? The friend told me how she was
sleeping with multiple men plus the two staying with her. And how men were crawling
through the window, late at night. But it’s my house so, why
would I have to have somebody
crawl through a window? And this is what her former
friend told you? Yes, Your Honor. Because I just found out
they had sexual intercourse,
under a bridge. Okay? Under a bridge. Did you have sex with this
friend, Mr. Watson? Don’t lie. No, Your Honor.
No I did not. Not sex. What did she do? Be honest because this is
our chance to clear our water and make our family either
complete or separate. I did not have sexual
relations with that women
in any kind. (AUDIENCE LAUGHING) (SCOFFS) We’ve heard that before. Right? Was there sexual contact? Yes, Your Honor. So, how can you not
expect this woman to do that? Because that was
her best friend. That was
her ride or die. They were together every day
of the minute. Who doesn’t tell
their best friend secrets? JUDGE LAKE: You felt she gave you
the inside scoop? Yes, Your Honor. And then she wanted to get
close to you but she gave
you a scoop, all right. MAHONEY: Right. So, when you found out
Ms. Mahoney was pregnant, what happened then? You found out
you were pregnant? I found out
I was pregnant and it was kind of little
iffy, at first.But he, you know…
He switched and he was like,
no, you had these men here.I know you were sleeping
with them.
Your best friend…
And that’s around the time
I found out what had happened
between them. He just was really upset
and told me I couldn’t name
him a junior. Till I came… Kevin. That’s really close,
you know. (SOBBING) And that I’d been
sleeping with him
and they’re his kids. (CRYING) So, I went…
(SOBBING) And we got DNA. You took a DNA test? Yes, ma’am. What happened? I went… I was on
government assistance and child support. Then we had to comply
with them. They asked me
who the father was. I told them who he was. And he ran from
all the things. Then finally
they found him. And had him go up there
and take the DNA. What did the DNA test say? 99.9%. That Mr. Watson
was Kevin’s biological father? Yes, ma’am. And the State put him on
that birth certificate. JUDGE LAKE:Did you bring
that test result with you?
No, I didn’t.Mr. Watson, why don’t you
believe those results? I even posted it on
Facebook. ‘Cause, first of all,
Your Honor, her friend forged papers. When she walked up
showing me these papers, first of all,
I didn’t see no… No government stamp on it
and when she showed me it quote me on this
if I’m wrong, when I read it, it read like,
99… Of the black
population. Of the black population. That was my response. Of the black population
in America, that he’s 99… (CRYING) I’m sorry. And that DNA took about seven, eight months
just to get here. And there was no… It took seven, eight months? They couldn’t find him. To get his DNA. And they already had ours. So, you believe she forged
these results? Yes, ma’am. So, when this court contacted
your home state, because we do our own
investigation, as well. MAHONEY: Yes, ma’am. We wanted to find out
how long it should take
to get results. And we were told that it takes about two weeks
to one month. So, Ms. Mahoney,
why would it take
seven months… I don’t… …to get these results? I don’t know why and we were together
and they showed up. If you’re confident, why wouldn’t you take a sealed
envelope to Mr. Watson and say,
“This is the paperwork.” But, Your Honor, we’ve been
through so much and spent so much in our life.
I’d never expected him
to think of me that low. I would never do that, but… That’s low of a person. So, you never thought he would
question paternity. Ever of… They’re documented
government papers. When your friend’s
forgin’ papers, what do you
want me to do? My friend, she forged
DNA documents. When we were younger. And… And it was real.
It looked real. So, I mean,
I understand, you know,
the fact that… You… And that would be
in my mind, as well, but… It’s just… I wanna get
this done and… I want the results
and our family to be happy. So, Mr. Watson, this is
a little bit too close to home
for you. Yes, Your Honor. You have a witness.
I’d like to hear from her.
Please stand, ma’am. State your name
for the record. Yolanda Watson. Ms. Watson, you are
what relation to Mr. Watson? Tevin’s mother. You are his mother. Yes, ma’am. So, ma’am, you’ve heard
the testimony that we have presented thus far. Uh. what can you tell us
about this situation? (SCOFFS) Well, I heard
the rumors when they were…
When it first came about. I’m confused also what… What all has been said
and what’s all goin on. Did you ever hear
this information about papers being forged? Yes. DNA papers, you’ve heard that? Yes, ma’am. MAHONEY: She knew her too. Yes, ma’am, and I did not
care for her. Do you believe
that biologically Kevin
is your grandson? I am now questioning more
and more. That’s never been in my heart
before and it is now. And it’s really bothering me. Thank you so much for your
testimony, ma’am. Thank you. Ms. Mahoney? Yes, Your Honor. You say this relationship
is on the line now. It’s been more than
on the line. That everything is riding
on these results. And I want to marry him
and I want to have a future. And I want our son
to be happy. But we fight. All the time over this. And he loves his dad.
And I know he loves him. And I… For four years, this has been hanging over your head? All the time. Yes, Your Honor. Anything… Anything. We can be mad
about our sandwich was cold and we’re gonna end up
fighting about this. There’s a lot of bad water
under our bridge. And we were young,
we’ve done a lot of things,
you know, to each other that
we’re not proud of. But I want it to be over
with now. I want to move on. I want… I want the answers. There’s no way to clear the water
under the bridge unless
you tell the truth. That’s why I’m here. Is there something you have not said? Is there another man that could potentially be
Kevin’s biological father? No, ma’am. Are there any other men? No, ma’am. I have…
We have broken up and I’ve had other, you know,
relationships with men but never around when
I got pregnant. How close in proximity to Kevin’s conception did you have relationships
with other men? It was after, Your Honor. WATSON: Not true. It was after… After he was born or after
you got pregnant? It was after he was born
and he was already probably about
two years old. Get out of here, man. Not gonna argue. You’re right. I’m not either.
I don’t wanna argue. We’ve done four years
of arguing. I just… I wanna know
where to go from here.
What to do. Our family is on the line. So, Mr. Watson, do you wanna
make this work if Kevin is
your biological child? Yes, Your Honor. You wanna make
this family work? Yes. Of course,
I love this woman. And if he’s not? I don’t know. I don’t know. Everything’s just… Be honest.
You’re gonna leave. Yeah, I’m gonna leave. We’ll never see you
again so… From fifth… (SNIFFLES) It’s like we never
had anything. You can’t just walk out
on somebody like that. JUDGE LAKE: I think there’s
so much at stake here. We can’t wait a moment longer. (SOBS) Please, Your Honor. Well, Jerome, let’s get
these results. Here, Your Honor. These results were prepared
by DNA Diagnostics and
they read as follows. Yeah, I’m gonna leave. In the case of
Watson v. Mahoney,
when it comes
to four-year-old
Kevin Watson, it has been determined
by this court, Mr. Watson, you are the father. (AUDIENCE CHEERING) MAHONEY: See? I love you. (CRYING) I love you so much. I’m sorry, baby. I love you. I love you so much. I love you. I’m sorry, baby. I know. It’s okay. It’s okay. (CRYING) YOLANDA: Come here.
Come here. I love you. I love you guys, too. Okay. I’m better now. JUDGE LAKE: You relieved,
Mr. Watson? Yes, ma’am. Can we go home and get
married now? (GIGGLES) Yes, we can. (AUDIENCE CHEERING) Listen. It can be better. But you have to do the work. MAHONEY: That’s why
we’re here. Right. I was just about to say…
Ms. Mahoney,
you’re so correct. This was the first step. Took you four years
to get here. To just get clarity. From a situation
that’s just been hanging over
your head and destroying your lives. It’s been so hard. And not just your life. Kevin’s life. Yeah. I’m gonna make that
way better. I’m… I’m gonna step up. JUDGE LAKE: Yes. Swear to God. JUDGE LAKE: And that
right there? And I believe him
and that’s why I wanted to be
here, too. But listen, what you have to
understand is a child knows
when they’re being rejected. Yep. So, now, we don’t know
what Kevin is feeling inside. So, you all have
the obligation now. To do the work necessary
to just… Not just repair
your relationship. But to help repair the damage
that has been done to him. MAHONEY: Yes, Your Honor. We have counseling and
resources for you that
are gonna help you just get on the right path
to a better future. For yourselves and for Kevin. I know you love him.
I can see that. So much. Now, you just have to do
what you have to do to
create the foundation from which he can launch and soar, right? All right. I wish you all
the very best. Court is adjourned.

    This woman has been under a lot of stress. That's why she was crying all the time! This guy mentioned for the whole world to know how his neighbhohood used to thing about her. Shame on him! I really doubt his love for her! He's such a self-centered person! I hope the therapy the shows offers can help her realise how low her self-steam is.

  40. Oforlikelalune says:

    That baby looks NOTHING like him honestly I don't blame him for questioning. I was shocked

  41. cha sw says:

    I don't know if I just don't know the meaning of love because a person who loves,care,trust and understand you can never left you with the baby without support when he 100% knows that you don't have any income resources.
    Anyway I wish you happiness

  42. justice2068 says:

  46. kinster02 says:

    Wow, the mom is very good looking.

  47. ARIEL_sky says:

    Can't see how a man can treat a woman like that like it's not ok man it hurts me sometime

  48. D says:

    She had doubts that he is the father that's why she cried. If she was certain that he is the father she would not have said she is 99.99% sure he's the father, she would have been 100% certain that he is.

  49. Philty McNasty says:

    I have never seen so much love jumping out of a woman’s body, literally, on PC like this woman here for a man. Mr. Tevin is so lucky, he doesn’t seem to realize that. She is all yours, totally, please return the love and move on.

  50. Leslie Lang says:

    So he "was away" (jail). If he doesn't want someone else to be in his child's life then maybe he should change his lifestyle & not go to jail. In jail everything is taken care of for you but for the families who are left to fend for themselves it isn't so easy.

  51. Leslie Lang says:

    I can't believe there are still women out there who feel that their life is not complete without a man. If a man moved away from my child like that it would be the last thing he did before I threw him out. That little boy is so cute. It's interesting that this child kind of has an Asian look about him but the man sort of does as well. Interesting human history.

  52. EricaYE6 says:

    Little boy got the same EXACT eyes as he do. smh

  53. Cathey Ware says:


  54. Alas Harper says:

    You have two men living in your house equals to people referring to you as the neighborhood hoe…duh!

  55. johanna says:

    NO WAY on this earth would I marry him she needs to have her head tested.

  56. Bufftygirl 72 says:

    Lord…please let it be his child so the Bih can stop all the f** water works! My God!😳

  57. Tessakaren Banda says:

    His mom though ❤️❤️❤️❤️

  58. Sasha12 says:

    Her desperation is just pushing him away..she needs some self esteem

  59. John Reeves says:

    I hate white people and black people relationship's

  60. erika senter says:

    Look you love him he loves you.. I get it she might have cheated you admitted you did. It’s been 4 years and you treated him differently. I have a 4year old I’m a stay at home mom. When it comes to my husband (his dad) he is more a daddy’s boy then a mommy’s. I’m here 24/7 my son never left me for the night until he was 2(bc I was having my second son). So all this to me means sons need there father as a mother I’m their protector but their father is the roll model. 4 yrs and you never find out that innocent little boy is not yours? By that time they can tell. ,that’s messed up to take so long bc you say you love the mom. As a mother she is wrong not to just do the dna test when he first started questioning. You all are messed up.

  61. Chucky B says:

  78. krishona B says:

    He can't listen to anything the "best friend" had to say because she had ill intentions

  79. sh987 says:

    Always be leery of people dishing dirt on your partner, because you have no real idea of what their motive could be. Perhaps they want to help, and maybe they want to break you up.

  80. Marge Simpson says:

    She is so weak. Just watching her cry through the whole show shows that she is so desperate & weak. Move on girl. Get a happy life.

  81. Sun Mama says:

    He wasn’t worth all those tears. Smh

  82. United We Stand !!! Varte Sisters says:

    I really feel for the woman. She is really emotionally hurt. God bless you.

  83. Cliff D says:

    Mrs. Watson is looking delicious. I thought that was his sister. What's up with his girlfriend constantly crying? She knows she was messing around while he was gone. Her friend and the dude admitted it. Stop it.

  84. elleni afework says:

    Oh my God !!! What a crazy love is , she loves him , not more about her cute boy.

  85. Kim Wilson says:

    Girl all that crying. Get over it. When your friends are shady it will bring questions. Dude, you didn't just go Bill Clinton on here. Both have issues.
