Brian McKnight ... You're the Daddy!

6/12/2010 4:23 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0611_brian_mcknight_EX_gettyBrian McKnight is the proud new father of a 14-year-old boy ... so says a Florida judge.

Miriam Lee filed paternity and child support docs in Orange County, FL last year alleging McKnight is the father of her son. 

Brian never filed docs addressing her claim .. so the judge has ruled Brian's the daddy.

And now for the bad news -- the judge also decided Brian must fork over 14 years worth of child support ... which comes to a whopping $341,640.

We're told Brian's monthly support payment is $11,388 a month.

A rep for Brian McKnight tells us, "The judgment in Florida was a default judgment made without Brian present.  He's still looking to establish paternity, and is awaiting the results of a recent test."

I am sorry, but if someone waits 14 years to go after paternity, they shouldn't get back support!

Brian is not the father of this child!! the paternity results came back with 0% probability that this child isn't his! this woman is sick to think she can just name some celebrity the father of her child and think she'll get paid!! this woman Miriam lee and all the other women involvong their children in their mess should be ashamed of themselves!!

Saw Brian Mcknight last night in concert in Las Vegas. It was a fabulous show with he and his sons performing. They-re all quite talented as a family. Whatever issues he has in his personal life, I hope he and loved ones can resolve them. I support him for the entertainment he gives to his fans. These personal issues only he can resolve as he asks ultimate judge for his guidance.

wonder what people have to say when they find out that he took a paternity test and was found not to be the father,
