James Brown child confirmed through DNA test

The late soul singer has another daughter

Another child of the late James Brown has been discovered through DNA testing.

The unidentified woman is the third person to determine that the star is their father since he died last December, said an advisor to the singer.

Several DNA tests have been performed in recent months to determine whether the singer has additional children who are not named in his will.

Brown‘s will names six children and is still being disputed in court, reports the Associated Press.

LaRhonda Petitt, a retired flight attendant from Houston, discovered with 99.9 percent certainty that she is Brown‘s daughter. An unnamed Florida woman has also stated that the deceased singer is her father.
