Jay Williams has 34 kids with 17 different women, but the successful music video producer said he has no plans to change his lifestyle.
The Atlanta-based music industry executive has fathered kids ranging from 26-years-old to 3, and said in a letter to relationship expert Iyanla Vanzant that he has relationships ranging from good to “non-existent.”
Now, in a new special called Iyanla: Fix My Life, Williams said he has no regrets about his lifestyle.
“Let me ask you this question, Jay. Thirty-four children. At any point, did it dawn on you [that] this is too much?” Iyanla asks.
“No,” Williams answers evenly.
Jay Williams revealed that he actually does practice safe sex — he’s just had a lot of accidents.
“I probably would have 200 kids if I didn’t use condoms,” Williams said.
Williams added that he never thought about getting a vasectomy. “I don’t want one,” he said. “I don’t have a problem with what I created.”
To help him understand the gravity of his situation, Iyanla handed Jay Williams 34 different dolls. At one point, Jay bumped one of the fake babies’ heads into a chair, prompting a rebuke from Iyanla.
When Jay got tired of holding the dolls and asked to put them down, the relationship expert took him to task.
“I’m sorry, as a mom,” she said, “I don’t get not to take care of my children, no matter what I’m thinking or feeling or going on.
“I had to figure out and find the time and the way to get myself handled, but, they were first,” she continues. ‘”And I didn’t get to just put them down because it was inconvenient.”
