How many children did music legend James Brown have?

As of Father’s Day, perhaps 13.

James Curtis of Las Vegas has stepped forward, claiming to be Brown’s son.

His mother, now deceased, met James Brown in Augusta juke joints and became pregnant with him when she was 13 years old, he said.

Brown was also a teen-ager at the time.

Curtis was born in 1951, which makes him—at age 61—Brown’s oldest child, if his claim is proven. He has offered to take a DNA test.

Curtis’s mother showed him pictures of the two of them together, and he always knew Brown was his father, he said.

At age 12, Curtis went to the Apollo Theater in New York, where Brown was performing, so that he could meet his father. “His band members and body guards pushed me aside,” he said.
