What did Heavy D say about the test?

In a series of tweets, he said: “Basically my ex who is 7 months pregnant, who says I’m the father, has basically just said I can’t have a DNA test, can’t give me a reason why.

“And we split up for a week before the ‘conception” and she went out and got steaming drunk with her mate. That’s too close for comfort!!

If there’s nothing to worry about why is she denying me a DNA test saying I have to wait 16 years to find out.

Rory Robyn Harris was born on September 4 2017, and was confirmed to be Heavy’s child.

Bryony, now aged 25, said at the time: “We were rowing and I told him I’d had enough. He walked out and left me.

“I know I’m better off without him but I loved him and he meant a lot to me.”

Little Rory is now three years old, and mum Bryony – now settled with a new partner – confirmed only last week that she’s expecting another child.

She said on Instagram: “It’s a boy! I can’t believe I’m having a little boy.”
