Israel Houghton’s Ex-Mistress Said Texas’ Top Cop Closed The Case Because Of “Misleading Information”
Newlywed Israel Houghton can breathe a little easier over his legal situation with the two children he fathered while married to his first wife.
The Texas Attorney General’s Office has abandoned its case against the gospel singer over paternity for one son and child support determination for both boys, a four-year-old and a two-year-old, BOSSIP has learned.
Reps for the state’s highest law enforcement office appeared in Harris County Family Court in Texas Dec. 6 for a child support hearing, known as “Title IV-D,” where they asked a judge to list the case as “nonsuited,” which meant the state no longer wanted to pursue the case. A judge later signed off on stopping the case from moving forward and effectively terminated it, a rep from the Harris County Superior Court told us. Houghton did not appear.
And Houghton’s sons’ mother, DeVawn Moreno, told us that that the case was halted because the facts weren’t straight from the start, though she declined to elaborate.
“The suit was dropped because of misleading information,” Moreno told BOSSIP in an email. “Our children are well taken care of as it always has been.”
A spokeswoman for the AG’s office declined to comment about Houghton’s case.
