During an appearance on Power 105’s “The Breakfast Club” on Tuesday (03-01-16), Chestnut discussed the situation, which stemmed from 30-year-old Dante Chestnut recently putting the “Rosewood” star on blast on social medial for being a deadbeat dad after leaving him and his mother when he landed the part of “Ricky” on the classic film “Boyz n the Hood.”
Explaining why Dante thought Chestnut was his father, the actor detailed the relationship he had with Dante’s mother, saying he was sleeping with her when he was about 17-18. During that time, the woman came to Chestnut one day to tell him she was pregnant. The woman’s pregnancy bombshell came before Chestnut married his wife Pam Bryse Chestnut with whom he has two kids, a 19-year-old son and a 17-year-old daughter.
Upon getting the news, Chestnut said he thought the child could be his and stepped up accordingly by starting a relationship with the woman while trying to take care of his responsibilities as a father. Nevertheless, the entertainer stated that the relationship with the woman was difficult one that found them constantly breaking up and making up.
