Woman not sure comedian Chris Rock is father of her 13-year-old son

Woman not sure comedian Chris Rock is father of her 13-year-old son

A woman who claims Chris Rock is the father of her 13-year-old son says she is seeking a DNA test because she is not completely sure he is the father.
Kali Bowyer filed court papers in Bulloch County in March claiming the comedian is her son's father.
"If I were 100 percent positive, I would not have requested a DNA test. I would have gone to the lawyers and courts for (a) child support order," Bowyer told the Statesboro Herald on Monday. "It's hard enough for a parent of any child to seek such a test, let alone someone in the public eye."
Rock has acknowledged the two had a "limited relationship" and is willing to take a DNA test, Bowyer said.
Bowyer also said she is pursing the paternity claim because her son is ill. She would not specify the illness.
Last month, Rock asked Bulloch County Superior Court to start paternity proceedings to determine if he is the father.
The 42-year-old comedian "desires to contribute to the support, maintenance and education" of the boy if there is evidence to prove he is the father, according to papers filed by Rock's attorney.
After filing court papers in Georgia in March, Bowyer indicated her case would be moved to New York. However, Rock's lawyer requested that the matter be taken up in the Georgia court.
Rock and his wife, Malaak, have been married for 10 years and have two young children.
