*A judge has ordered R&B star Brian McKnight to pay more than $340,000 to a woman who won a ruling naming the singer the father of her teenage son.
Miriam Lee filed paternity and child support documents against the artist in Orange County, Florida last year, claiming her 14-year-old was the product of a brief fling she had with McKnight.
McKnight never filed documents addressing her claim, so the judge has ruled him the father, according to TMZ.com. The artist has now been told he owes 14 years of child support – which amounts to $11,388 a month.
But McKnight isn’t done with fighting the paternity claim; a rep for the star says, “The judgment in Florida was a default judgment made without Brian present. He’s still looking to establish paternity, and is awaiting the results of a recent test.”
