Man Doubts Daughter After Wife Admits To Being Unfaithful (Full Episode) | Paternity Court


You may be seated. Hello, Your Honor,
this is a case of Tucker, Riley
vs. Riley. Thank you. Good day, everyone. Ms. Tucker, you and your son Mr. Riley,
are here today to determine the paternity
of his alleged
four-month-old baby. You state that
his wife, Mrs. Riley, admitted to having sex
with two different men in addition to your son
during the time the child
was conceived. (AUDIENCE MURMURING) You argue that your son’s wife
lies and cheats. Yes, ma’am. And you are here hoping to put
an end to their marriage. Yes, ma’am. LAKE: Now, Mrs. Riley, you admit to having
a one-night stand
with one potential father as well as a month-long affair
with another man… (AUDIENCE EXCLAIMING) Yes, Your Honor. LAKE:
…while married to Mr. Riley. Paternity tests
have been administered
on two of the men and we will reveal
those results today. Now, Ms. Tucker, I understand
you would like your son,
Mr. Riley, to leave his wife. Please tell the court, why are you
so adamant about it? My son is married
to a whore. (AUDIENCE GASPS) I am not a whore. Speaking, please. A whore. How can you
call me a whore? You’re the same as me
if nothing. A whore, a whore. Let’s get some
order, please. Willfully had an affair
numerous times, lived
with the man, whatever. Um, has no clue
who the father is. Or we wouldn’t
be here today. At least I’m
finding out. TAMMY: And hopefully
when we do find out… …and my husband. TAMMY: When we do find out
who the father is, he is not going home with her,
he’s coming home with me. COURTNEY: I bet you he does. All right, so, the truth is
is you’re a mother. Yes, ma’am. And you’re hurting
for your son. Yes. I’m not married to her.
I’m married to my husband,
James Riley. And he’s still my son
and will be my son
till the day I die. And he’s still
my husband. Whatever, whatever. I’m not goin’ nowhere.
Til death do us part. LAKE: Ms. Tucker… Yes, ma’am. What is it that
you see going on
in their marriage that causes
so much concern? Um, incident with
the whole baby thing, she is the one
that told me, “Oh, I didn’t go
home one night. I stayed
at my ‘friend’s house’. “I’m going to stay
with my ‘friend’
for a little while.” Come to find out,
that’s when she got pregnant, and now we don’t know
who the father is. COURTNEY: I have no response. LAKE: So, she’s admitted
to cheating. TAMMY: Yes. Why do you think
your son is staying with her? I don’t know.
I don’t… I don’t know.
I really don’t. Jerome, could you please
escort Mr. Riley
into the courtroom? Certainly. I haven’t seen him
in four months
so, um, he looks very well. He looks really good
because of her. Not because of me. Welcome, Mr. Riley. You got our number.
You don’t call! So this is your mother? Yes, ma’am. LAKE: Ms. Tucker,
and your wife? Yes. LAKE: Mrs. Riley? JAMES: Yes, ma’am. I wanna understand
why do you doubt this woman, what has happened
in this marriage… She’s a whore. …to cause you… I’m not a whore. …to be so doubtful. You’re a whore! Call a book by its cover. (AUDIENCE GASPING) Well, we were together
for three years. We couldn’t get pregnant,
and, uh… COURTNEY: We was
taking fertility pills
when I got pregnant! That we’d order offline
to get pregnant. In the beginning
when we went
to the ultrasound, him and my ex-boyfriend,
both went! (AUDIENCE HOOTING) He never, never… Wait a minute. He was there
from the start! Wait a minute! You went to
an ultrasound appointment
during your pregnancy? Yes, we did and he knew
the whole time. So I don’t see
why she’s here trying
to break us apart. She don’t need to be here.
This ain’t her child. She hasn’t seen my kid
one time. LAKE: So, Ms. Riley… My son. Mrs. Riley, in your statement
you admitted
to a one-night stand. Yes, I did. So tell me what happened. What happened,
me and him was fighting. It got escalated. I called a family member. He had a friend, Mr. Shaffer. They helped me
move some things in, and I moved out. We was all hanging out, having a good time,
drinking. The guy was ugly.
I didn’t even like him. It was the best sex
of my life,
I will admit that. (ALL EXCLAIMING) Okay, well, I really didn’t have
to know that to make
a determination. COURTNEY: He gave me
the attention that he didn’t! Right. Because
you’re a whore. No, I’m not a whore.
That’s you. I’m far
from it, honey. COURTNEY: No, not at all. Really? She don’t have
any respect for me.
I’m his wife. You all don’t have any respect
for yourselves, each other, but you will have respect
for this court. (AUDIENCE CHEERING) Now, I’m trying
to get you the answers that you came here for. Mr. Shaffer is the gentleman
you had the affair with. Am I correct? Yes. That’s correct. Now, he’s submitted
to a DNA test as well, and we also have
a video statement from him. COURTNEY: Yes. (AUDIENCE GASP) When I first met her, I was like, you know,
I didn’t… I wasn’t really attracted
to her or anything like that. I had a one-night stand
with her. It’s because that night,
you know, we got… We were partying
and you know,
I got a little messed up and then things started
leading one thing to another. After I messed
around with her, she texted my family,
like every day, wanting
to hang out, you know. So I texted her
for a little bit. But, she started getting
like stalker-y. I found out she was married
after I messed
around with her. And I’m like,
“I can’t do that.” You know, first,
she’s a married woman. You know, two, she’s ugly. (AUDIENCE EXCLAIM)Three, you know,
I don’t want to see her. Got that right. No. Better look in the mirror. You’ve explained
the one-night stand I guess
as best as you could. How did you end up back
with this boyfriend? Um, the boyfriend? I went back to my husband.
I thought everything
was going to be better. He kept telling me that
we’ll work on our marriage.
He’ll treat me right. Again, things kept escalating. I stayed with the boyfriend
at a hotel for two weeks. So you stayed.
You’re at a hotel
for two weeks? Yeah, I left
my husband for the boyfriend. I kept telling the boyfriend
I miss my husband, I wanna be with him. That’s who I’ve been with
for five years of my life. That’s the only man
I really know. I go back to my husband. She missed
the boyfriend. I explained. My boyfriend didn’t have
nowhere else to go. He was gonna be homeless. I felt bad for the guy. I asked my husband if it would be okay
if he stayed with us
till he got on his feet. Wait a minute! (AUDIENCE EXCLAIM) Yes, Your Honor. You asked… Yes. …Mr. Riley,
your husband, if your boyfriend who you laid up
at the hotel with
for two weeks… He was okay with it. …could come and stay
’cause he didn’t have
anywhere to go. She lied. She lied. She lied. He was okay
with this. He could stay
with his father. He said it was fine. Mr. Riley, please,
tell me you said no. I didn’t. LAKE: You let
the boyfriend move in? COURTNEY:
They became friends! They went to the casino
and everything together. They was like buddies. Yeah, I felt bad for him. She told me
that he didn’t have
no place to go. And she lied. He didn’t have
nowhere else to go. Oh, Mr. Riley, I think
you may be too kind
for your own good. (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING) LAKE: Oh. Ms. Riley,
how long did you live
at your marital home with your boyfriend
and your husband? About a month. What? And she was sleeping
with them both. Yeah. You slept with them both
during that time? Yes, I will admit to that
’cause I was confused. Hello! I was confused
at the time. I had my husband. (AUDIENCE JEERING) I told you. Hold on, hold on! I asked… Mr. Riley, were you aware
that she was sleeping with the boyfriend and you
at the same time? Yes, he was. Well, one night she’d sleep
with him on the couch and then the next night, she’d be like,
“I’m with you.” They both knew. And then she’d sleep
in the bed with me. Yeah. Yeah, they both knew.
I never lied about anything. I actually caught them,
having sex on the floor while I was at work. While he was at work, she was with
the other one. Yes. I got off an hour early. And I… I felt… He walked in. A gut feeling. And, uh, the blinds were shut,
I come in and unlock the door
real quick, open the door and they’re
on the floor having sex. Right. (AUDIENCE EXCLAIMING) LAKE: Oh. So, tell me,
this was the last straw. This is when you decided,
“This… This is it!” Tell me it was the last straw. JAMES: No. No. You took her back again? Well, he, uh…
She told me he apparently
moved out or whatever. And then the day I come home
from work, she says, “I got news for you.” And, um, I walk in and
he’s there and she’s there. We had that planned. And she’s like,
“I’m pregnant.” You have to understand
why he may be doubtful, seeing as though,
you admitted to cheating. Yes, I understand that. You’re doubtful now. Yes. Are you giving it
your best effort? Oh, yeah, 100%. (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING) Yes, when she ain’t
in the relationship, he does. I haven’t been
in the relationship
for four months! Because he texted you
and told you not to be. Because of this right now! For four months! LAKE: Okay.
The last time I heard, marriage was between
a man and a woman. (AUDIENCE CHEER) Not a man, and a woman
and the mother. So you really
shouldn’t have been
“in the relationship” ever! I should still be
able to have contact
with my son. He is 20-something-years-old. He can work
wherever he wants. And we’re married! He can do what he…
Oh, really? Yes. You were married?
Well, you got
pregnant, too! Let’s talk about
the pregnancy. So when you found out
you were pregnant, did you know
who the father was? No. No. Uh, you don’t know. I got evidence right here. Obviously you don’t. Of the calendar. Obviously you don’t. If you look by the date,
it’s James’s. Ooh, let’s go
by the dates. COURTNEY: Chad was… Chad was before
I got pregnant. Jerome, can you please
hand me this calendar? COURTNEY: And that baby
looks just like him. You got
a baby picture of James? TAMMY: Sure do. Sure do. COURTNEY: You got baby
pictures of him? That baby looks dead on him! No, he don’t
look dead on. No, he does
not look… I’m not saying he don’t
look beautiful but he don’t
look like James. Are you all right, Mr. Riley?
You seem emotional. I love him. TAMMY: Of course he does. TAMMY: He’s been with him
since he’s been born.
He was there when he was born. I would fall in love
with a child if I was around him
all the time. Which I’ve never
got to see. So why are you here? ‘Cause she knows…
You lied to him. Your son is happy,
so why are you here? (GAVEL POUNDING) LAKE: Ladies, ladies, ladies! You’re so busy
screaming back and forth you don’t understand
this man is standing here
looking at… COURTNEY: He already accepted
that child. LAKE: No, no, no, no,
no, no, no, no, no! The bottom line is
not only does he
have the right to know whether or not
he’s the child’s father… TAMMY: That’s right. …the child has
a right to know if he’s his father. (AUDIENCE CHEERING) And what I’m saying
to you… And the potential father. What I’m saying to you is, it’s obvious that you two
enjoy going back and forth
at one another, but you’re not supporting him
on either level, as a mother or a wife! That’s James’s baby,
no matter what. James told me… Mr. Riley, you said
you love your child. Yes, ma’am. LAKE: And you’ve
been there. Yes, ma’am, since day one. I want him to be my son. You know,
I’ve been wanting kids
since I first got with her. And then, and… Two other men
come in our life,
saying that… She’s pregnant. COURTNEY: While we was taking
fertility pills. It’s just rough. LAKE: Your emotions
are understandable. Now, I… I need to go
to this calendar that Ms. Riley
submitted to the court, which outlines… COURTNEY: The days
I conceived is when I was
with James. LAKE: So, for the months
of June and July the estimated date
of conception is the 2nd of July. COURTNEY: Yes. LAKE: You admit to being
romantically involved with your boyfriend
and your husband in the same timeframe though. Yeah. COURTNEY: Yes. And you could figure
all that out. Okay. LAKE: Okay. LAKE: And then you admit to
having that one-night stand all within the window
of conception. All of them, yes. (SIGHS) You’re a married man. Yes, ma’am. LAKE: But there could
potentially be
three different men that could be
that beautiful child’s father. Yep. Yes, ma’am. What are you
hoping for today?
What do you want? I want him to be mine. And you want him to be yours
because you want
to be his dad? JAMES: Yes, ma’am. LAKE: You wanna
be in his life? During my life
my father was never there. And I couldn’t imagine putting
another person through that,
not having a father. And he’s the only person
I’ve seen or that he’s seen
since he was born. And I couldn’t
put him through that. I commend you for that. You know, Ms. Riley, every time he looks
at a picture of this baby, he’s overcome
with emotions. COURTNEY: Yeah! He loves that baby. But me and him
have problems. And when I tried to work
my problems out with him,
he didn’t wanna hear it. He didn’t wanna be there. He never gave me
the attention I needed. TAMMY: He’s been there! How’s he not been there? You ain’t there! LAKE: Well, I will say this. That’s how I know! You were in a whole
different state! LAKE: I will say this. Yes, I do. He may not have given you
the attention you needed. But he most certainly gave you
a lot of forgiveness that I’m not sure… TAMMY: Yes, he did. Yes. Yes, he did. LAKE: …even I
could’ve given! Yes, he did. LAKE: So, the only way
we’re gonna be able to see how and what
we should do from here is to get the results. (JAMES SNIFFLES) LAKE: Okay?
Jerome, do you have
the envelope? Thank you. These first results
as prepared by
DNA Diagnostics for Mr. Shaffer. TAMMY: Wow!
What a winner! (AUDIENCE EXCLAIMING) In the case of
Tucker vs. Riley, when it comes
to the paternity of four month old
Bryson Riley, Mr. Shaffer, the man Mrs. Riley had
a one night stand with is… Not the father. (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING) Let’s go to the next result.
Jerome, do you have
the envelope, please? These results were
also prepared by
DNA Diagnostics as it relates to
Tucker vs. Riley. When it comes
to four-month-old Bryson Riley… Mr. Riley… You are not… (AUDIENCE EXCLAIMING) Okay, that’s okay. …the father. It’s all right. COURTNEY:
That’s okay. He’ll still be the dad
no matter what. Oh, really? It’s okay? Yeah. Whore! You don’t know! LAKE: Let’s get some order. Mr. Riley, I know that was not
the news you wanted to hear. (SNIFFLES) He needs to come home
with me and stay with me. That’s his kid
no matter what. Ms. Riley!
Ms. Riley! Ms. Riley! That baby, he takes after him! That mouth is
not going to undo the damage
you’ve caused. I understand that. (AUDIENCE APPLAUDS) You need to stand there and accept responsibility… I have been from day one. But you went running
all over town instead of keeping
your problems
within your home and now, this man, who has accepted
your child from day one,
been there for your child and desperately wanted
to be the biological father
of your child has just had
the letdown
of his life and you yapping and talking
and yelling is not helping. (AUDIENCE CHEERING) You have a good man. I’m not saying either
of you have been perfect
in this marriage but I’m talking about
what I see in terms
of genuine emotion and commitment to a child
and to this marriage. Taking you back
and taking you in
with your boyfriend. Nobody would do that! (AUDIENCE CHEERING) Mr. Riley, I am sorry.
This was not what
you wanted to hear. You know, we say
in this courtroom, “It takes DNA to make
a father but it takes
love to be a daddy.” Yes, it does. And you, sir, are most certainly the daddy. Thank you. LAKE: And Ms. Riley, you have gotten the gift
that I don’t even know
if you deserve but you have a man
that loves you
and loves your child, even though it was determined
today he wasn’t
the biological father. Honor that gift by
getting it together!
Are we clear? Yes! Court is adjourned. (AUDIENCE APPLAUDING) Mr. Riley…
Jerome, can you bring
Mr. Riley up, please? I know you said you had
a difficult childhood and you didn’t
have your father. Yes. Now think about the things you
went through and the emotions
that you feel. Always remember,
if you leave, this young baby
will feel that same way because you are his daddy. Yes, ma’am. Can you do that? Yes. (SNIFFLES) Thank you.
I’m proud of you. You’re doing
the right thing. Okay. Thank you. Good luck to you.
