rick ross*No wonder his performance on the BET Awards had so much swagger. He was feelin’ good!

Yep, news has come that Rick Ross did NOT father a secret child in Florida three years ago — so says the results of a court-ordered DNA test in the rapper’s recent paternity case.

TMZ broke the story … 36-year-old Tyrisha Childers filed a paternity lawsuit against Ross last year — claiming the rapper knocked her up a few years ago … and never paid a dime for child support.

Rick fired back, insisting he never even slept with Childers — let alone fathered her baby — so the court ordered both parties to submit to a DNA test.

Well, the results are in — and according to the test, there’s a zero percent chance Rick’s the dad.

Childers has since voluntarily dismissed her case, which means Rick’s a free man.

We hope Ms. Childers remembers that God forgives, Mr. Ross doesn’t. (Yuk, yuk.)
