DNA Testing Confirms at Least 2 More Children for James Brown

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - James Brown may have had more children than he claimed when he was alive.

One of the late soul singer's advisers says nearly a dozen people who claim Brown is their father have taken DNA tests. Those tests show at least 2 people are telling the truth.

One of them is identified as LaRhonda Petitt a 45-year-old retired flight attendant and teacher in Houston. She tells the Augusta Chronicle newspaper her mother became Brown's girlfriend in the early 1960s.

She's angry Brown never acknowledged her as his daughter, telling the paper she "could have had a better life."

Brown died last December. His will, which names 6 children, is being disputed in court.
