Kirk Frost Will Head To Court Over Allegations That He Impregnated Stripper
“Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’s” Kirk Frost is finally facing the music over claims he secretly fathered a baby boy with former stripper Jasmine Washington.
Some seven months after Washington sued Frost for paternity and child support for baby Kannon Mekhi Washington, the married father of five has agreed to accept service on the case, and it will now move forward in the courts, BOSSIP has learned.
Frost, whose marriage to Rasheeda is in jeopardy because of the affair, accepted service of Washington’s complaint July 10, according to court documents obtained by BOSSIP.
Washington’s lawyer Tony Mathis told BOSSIP that his client was relieved that the case would finally move on and eventually co-parent little Kannon.
“We are going to have the paternity set done and once we have this completed, we’ll look at child support,” he told us. “It’s better later than never, but our focus is on the long-term. We don’t want an unnecessary animosity towards anybody. The focus is on the child.”
Washington said in court papers that she was essentially Frost’s kept woman, receiving a monthly allowance and use of a car in exchange for being with him. However, she said after her baby was born and she tried to break things off, Frost began denying that Kannon was his and cut her off financially.
Frost appeared to have done all he could not to take the paternity test: from pretending that he didn’t know Washington, dodging service and accusing her of being a scam artist. But finally, Frost acknowledged on the show that he did sleep with her and gave her hush money to keep quiet about the affair.
Their secret relationship and the fallout was a major storyline on this season’s “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta,” and it seems to have been the straw that broke the camel’s back in Frost’s marriage. On the show, the pair signed separation papers, and on the LHHATL reunion show, Rasheeda complained that Frost’s stepping out “broke” her emotionally.
While Mathis said there is no doubt in Washington’s mind that Frost is her son’s father, they will do the paternity test anyway “to get that question answered in his mind,” Mathis said.
