On why she waited eight years to demand the rapper's involvement in her child's upbringing, the unnamed woman blames it on the 2002 tragedy.
A woman who claims Lil Wayne fathered a child back in 2002 has blamed Hurricane Katrina for delaying earlier attempts to prove paternity. The rapper is facing a legal battle over allegations he fathered a son with an unnamed woman eight years ago and he has been ordered to take a DNA test to prove whether he is the youngster's biological father.
The boy's grandmother has filed the legal action and her attorney tells TMZ.com the family "tried multiple times to get a paternity test" through the court system in New Orleans, Louisiana but the case suffered years of delays after Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005 and destroyed numerous court records.
The hip-hop star, who already has four children from previous relationships, has until December 9 to take the DNA test.
