8 Famous Instances Of Paternity Fraud Uncovered After DNA Tests



DNA tests have become a popular method of determining a child’s paternity as well as a useful tool in criminal investigations.

Paternity testing can identify a child’s father with 99.99 percent certainty. For definitive answers, a simple cheek-swab test is all that is required.

Indeed, the possibility of DNA test results disrupting “peaceful” homes exists.

Below, we highlight some famous paternity frauds uncovered after DNA tests were conducted.

Nii Odartey Lamptey, a former Ghanaian international footballer, was confronted with one of the most heinous situations a man can face.

Through DNA testing, the former Aston Villa player discovered that all three of his children — children he has fathered and cared for since their birth — are not his biological children.

This means he has spent nearly his entire married life (approximately 20 years) raising children who are not biologically his.

Lamptey claims he suspected his wife of cheating on him and ordered a DNA test to prove it. His suspicions were confirmed by the test.

Despite having suspected his wife of infidelity for some time, Lamptey chose to stay in the marriage out of love for her and the stability of a business chain that they jointly own.

Lamptey eventually divorced his wife.
