The paternity suit leveled against rapper Busta Rhymes in a North Carolina court appears to have gotten stronger, as recent test results indicate that Rhymes is likely to be the biological father of a one-year-old girl.
According to the Associated Press, the results of a paternity test done to determine whether Rhymes is the father of Mariah Elizabeth Miskelly indicated a 99.9964 percent chance that he was indeed the dad.
The child’s mother, Jill Miskelly, filed a paternity suit against the rapper in early July, although Busta has been voluntarily paying over $1,200 a month in child support since January.
Miskelly and her attorneys are attempting to have that amount increased, as state laws base the amount of child support payments on the income of the father.
When contacted by MTV News about this story, label reps for Busta Rhymes had no comment on either the pending lawsuit or the results of the paternity test.
