Mike Epps Hit With Paternity Suit

3/22/2008 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mike EppsComedian Mike Epps isn't just a sidekick anymore. He's finally starring in his own drama -- a paternity suit!

The married actor who has appeared in movies such as "Next Friday" and "Resident Evil: Extinction," is being named as the baby daddy to a Georgia woman who gave birth in December 2007.

Randy Kessler, the woman's lawyer, says Epps has refused to submit to a paternity test or provide any support for the child, saying, "We are not asking for the moon, we are just asking him to take a paternity test. Once the tests are completed and paternity is confirmed, hopefully, Mr. Epps will do the right thing and begin to provide for his child."

Kessler says he and his client initially wanted to work things out privately, but those efforts have been ignored by Epps and his camp. The paternity suit was filed in early February, and since then, Kessler says he has sent five letters and made a number of phone calls to Epps' lawyers -- and all he got back was silence.

Calls to Mike Epps' rep have not been returned.

If you can't keep it zipped up, then expect to take some responsibility.

I wonder if he thinks the situation will just go away if he ignores it. He better hop on it before the arears get out of control. Now that wifey knows (someone she knows reads TMZ) maybe it will get taken care of.

I think we can all agree that not one of us is perfect! What's degrading to both the celebrity and those associated are the choices they make. How wonderful it would be for them to consider the power of impact and image during their journey in success. They have choices, particularly the married ones. Bring back the Morality Clauses, stif penalities and Contract Revocations.... hee hee (Call me old school, but it worked and the youth was measurably protected)

Fernando - It take two dear! Just because a woman might have her legs uncrossed does not mean it is time to drop the pants! Not unless you are ready to take some responsibility if she becomes pregnant.

He was probably misinformed and thinks the welfare system
will pay for this child.
