‘I Don’t Want To Take The Woman’s Word:’ Kirk & Rasheeda Talk Paternity Test Drama
If you caught Wednesday’s episode of “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta,” chances are you witnessed Kirk Frost swab his infant son on national television with the intent of establishing paternity of the child. It’s no secret that Kirk, for whatever reason, had doubts about whether or not Rasheeda had been faithful to him. But seeing him swab baby Karter for the world to see was a bit much. According to Kirk, he has been through a paternity mix-up before and simply wished to avoid going through it again.
“I’m going to be honest. It’s a honest answer,” Kirk expressed during a recent appearance on the Ryan Cameron show. “First of all, I found out I had another child, I met him when he was almost 18 years old. I felt like another guy was raising my child until he was 18 years old. I feel like I was robbed of knowing I had a child for that many years. For me, if I have anymore kids, I don’t want to take the woman’s word on it. I want to check myself.”
As for the scene where he swabs little Karter, Kirk says:
“That’s me checking to make sure that’s my child. Everybody talking about how light skin your kids, I’m not going to torture myself and sit here and listen, now I know. I’m not saying its right or wrong, I’m just tired of that.”
“It makes me sounds crazy, but when you have a child where does it come from? It comes out of a woman. We have to take your word. Are you perfect? Wife don’t mean that I should believe you.”
“He sounds like a fool,” Rasheeda interjected. “I’ve never put you in a situation to feel like you needed to swab Karter. You stepped out.”
The reality stars also confirmed recent rumors that producers have beefed up security during “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” filming sessions.
“Our job is crazy, you’re going through metal detectors,” said Kirk.
“It’s like that, now even when we’re working they take on extra precautions not only to protect you, maybe from getting into it with another cast mate but other people who just wilding out,” Rasheeda added. “People do crazy stuff—so we have to keep extra security on deck because people be getting out of hand.”
Rasheeda has really tough skin. That’s all I’ll say.
