Orlando Shaw has fathered 22 kids with 14 different women and yes, he owes most of them child support.
Well, actually, Shaw owes the state child support. UPI reports that Tennessee has been paying more than $7000 per month to help support all of Shaw’s kids. Child Support Services recently named Shaw the “most expensive deadbeat dad” in state history and is now suing the Nashville man to get some money back.
Of course, it’s going to be pretty hard for Shaw to pay back child support for all 22 of his kids.
Magistrate Scott Rosenberg said that Shaw would probably need to get three or four full-time jobs in order to pay back all of the money to the state. Unfortunately for Shaw,he already has a prison record and says that it has been hard for him to find a job.
Shaw told the NY Daily News: “To be honest with you, don’t nothing come to a dreamer … I go everywhere looking for a job, where am I going to get one with my lengthy record? I’m just hoping one day I’ll get lucky and might scratch off the numbers or something. I play the hell out of the Tennessee lottery.”
If Shaw can’t pay (which he won’t be able to since he’s banking on a lottery win) he’ll probably have to serve some prison time.
Having 22 kids with 14 women has caused plenty of monetary, and now legal, problems for Shaw but he doesn’t regret having his children.
Shaw said: They’re my kids, I love my kids and I could (not) care less what anybody else thinks about it… I was just young and ambitious and I loved women. You can’t knock no man for loving women. What I didn’t know, when I turned 33, everything I that did from 16 to 18 is biting me now.”
