It’s great to hear Viola is affording baby Genesis a life she would never ordinarily have in the foster system:
The baby girl adopted by “The Help” star VIOLA DAVIS and her husband is the child of a drug-addicted prostitute, The ENQUIRER has learned exclusively. And in another bombshell, we can reveal that the couple may adopt a second child from the prostitute, who is pregnant again! The woman’s first baby, Genesis, was taken from her custody by authorities shortly after her birth when traces of drugs were found in her system, sources say.
“Viola knows the girl’s biological mother, and when she learned the baby would likely go into a foster home, she stepped up,” a source revealed. “She and her husband had been considering adoption long before the opportunity to adopt Genesis came along, so in some ways the agonizing situation was a blessing in disguise.
“Viola hasn’t publicly disclosed the details surrounding Genesis’ adoption because she’s trying to protect the biological mother.” Police reports obtained exclusively by The ENQUIRER reveal that Genesis’ mother – whose identity is being withheld – was arrested for prostitution in 2005 and 2006. Law enforcement officials reported she was offering to perform sex acts on the street for as little as $30.
“The woman had begun using crack and heroin about eight years ago and turned to prostitution to support her habit,” revealed a second source. She pleaded no contest both times, and was sentenced to six months probation, and substance abuse and AIDS counseling each time, records show.
“Genesis’ mother is pregnant again and will give birth in about three months,” revealed the second source. “If she loses custody of this baby, Viola and Julius are considering stepping up again and adopting so the child won’t be sent to a foster home.”
That’s commendable for Viola to step up and take on this responsibility.
