This is a critical juncture in rapper Flavor Flav’s life as he faces health and paternity issues.

As fans saw during the latest episode of “Growing Up Hip Hop: New York,” Flavor Flav, 60, is dealing with a concerning health problem that he has yet to share with his four children.

The health of Flavor Flav, born William Jonathan Drayton, Jr. in Roosevelt, New York, is extremely relevant since he has just learned that he is a new father as he enters his sixth decade on earth.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Flavor Flav is the new father of a two-month-old baby.

As rolling out reported previously, Kate Gammell filed a paternity case against Flavor Flav in a Los Angeles County Court. The DNA test, conducted by LabCorp on Oct. 21, reveals that the Public Enemy rapper is 99.9 percent likely to be the father of infant Jordan Reid Gammell.

The baby was born on July, 21, 2019 in Pasadena, California, just outside of Los Angeles.

Gammell, who has worked as a manager on multiple projects with Flavor Flav over the years, is seeking a decision from the court to order Flav to begin making child support payments.
