Flavor Flav is said to have built a relationship with his youngest child after a paternity test confirmed he was the father.

Rapper Public Enemy, 63, reportedly fathered a son named Jordan with Kate Gammell, his former manager.

Jordan, now three, is believed to be the result of a brief relationship between the two when she worked with him for three years.

In 2019, it was said that Kate received a DNA test from Flava – real name William Jonathan Drayton Jr – which determined he was the father.

However, in the years since, Kate has claimed to be raising Jordan on her own without the music star.

His parents, Barry and Parchi, have now told TMZ that Flavor and Kate have settled on child support and custody, and the rapper is spending quality time with the toddler.

It is also said that Jordan will take his last name, Drayton, and that Flavor teaches his youngest to play the drums.

Flavor and Kate have reportedly filed legal documents to make everything official, with a hearing scheduled for later in the year.

The Fight The Power hitmaker is also the father of seven other children; daughters Shanique, Karren and Karla Drayton, from his relationship with Karen Ross who he dated in the 80s and 90s, daughter Da’Zyna and son William with ex Angie Parker, son Karma with Liz Trujillo and son Quanah.

The hip hop star is a proud dad and often shares photos of his brood on social media.

Flavor rose to fame with the rap group Public Enemy, which he co-founded with Chuck D, and found success with the hit single Fight The Power. Together they earned six Grammy nominations and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
