Deadbeat Baby Daddy Has 22 Kids With 14 Women: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Orlando Shaw guessed he had fathered 18 children with 17 women, but he really has 22 children with 14 women, making him the `most expensive deadbeat dad` in Tennessee history.


`I was young and ambitious and I love women,` Shaw, 33, told WTVF-TV. He said that when he was young he wanted 50 kids, but he`s ready to get `fixed` now.

The state is estimated to be paying more than $7,000 each month to help support all of Shaw`s children."


I`m not a rocket scientist, a social worker, or a psychologist, but I will venture to guess that not one of Shaw`s children will grow up to be a teacher, scientist, lawyer, accountant or physician.

You can`t squeeze blood from a turnip and you can`t collect from a deadbeat dad who doesn`t look like he has the brains to fill out a job application.

Shaw said he`s proud of all his children, who range in age from infancy to 18; we will be cursing his progeny for decades to come.

Taxpayers are paying more than $7,000 each month to support Shaw`s children, and decades later we will be paying hundreds of thousands per month to pay for their incarceration.

Shaw is finally ready to be fixed, better late than never.
