TN:Man Fathered Over 20 Kids Seeks Child Support Modification

In court for child support, a Tennessee mom learned her boyfriend of eight years fathered 20 other children.

Terry Turnage filed a petition at the Shelby County Juvenile Court to lower his child support payments to 15 different women.

Turnage didn't show up for the hearing, but his former girlfriend Latoya Shields did.

Shields says she had to sit down when prosecutor told her the news.

"At that time, three years ago, my child was the 21st child."

Shield says Turnage is supposed to pay 259-dollars a month in child support, but she has yet to see that kind of money.

The mom says Turnage's sporadic payments are usually between six and nine dollars.
