On April 29, 2023, Brian McKnight randomly became the topic of discussion after someone called him out on Twitter about not acknowledging his biological kids. The timeline of both of his marriages and the children that were a product of each quickly became public knowledge.

Due to the backlash, McKnight defended himself on YouTube to explain the situation further.

In the video, he said that he once had a great relationship with his adult children. He claims he never missed a child support check and he even bought apartments for his oldest sons, musician Brian Jr. and celebrity photographer Niko, both children from his first marriage with Julie McKnight.

The relationships he had with Briana and Clyde seem to be undocumented and both are products of past relationships outside of marriage.

According to McKnight, he no longer has a relationship with his biological children due to them allegedly being ungrateful, among other things, which he referenced in his video. His oldest kids claim McKnight was not very present in their lives.

As of today, he only claims to be the father of his stepchildren Julia and Jack, his rainbow baby Brian Kainoa Makoa, and his deceased child Kekoa Matteo. Many fans were unaware that McKnight has four other biological children.

The issue many people have is that McKnight chooses to only publicly acknowledge his stepchildren and newborn son with his Filipino wife, Leilani Malia Mendoza.

Social media users shared their thoughts on the matter.
