James Brown Update

Brown2 It appears that the fold of children of James Brown has another new member.  The following is from One more child for James Brown, Ireland On-line, Aug. 26, 2007:

DNA testing has proved the late funk legend James Brown fathered one more child- the third such case since his death last year.

Dozens of people underwent foolproof DNA analysis after claiming to be the offspring of the late star - and now Brown's attorney and longtime friend Buddy Dallas confirmed on Monday one more result came back positive, bringing the total to three.

While Dallas refuses to release any details as other tests are pending, one of the first new-found children LaRhonda Pettit has already gone public with the results of her test - a 99.99% probability she is the soul man's daughter.

Special thanks to Joel Dobris (Professor of Law, UC Davis School of Law) and Diane Marie Amann (Professor of Law, UC Davis School of Law and Visiting Professor of Law, University of California, Berkeley School of Law) for bringing this historical note to my attention.
