Father Of 30 Kids Says He Can’t Afford Child Support

33-year old Desmond Hatchett has kids with 11 women, and twice now, four of those women were pregnant in the same year. Not only is that an insane amount of birthdays to keep up with, it’s also bleeding Hatchett’s wallet dry. He says he only makes minimum wage and since the courts demanded that part of his paycheck be divided up for child support, he’s having a hard time making ends meet. Because the amount has to be divvied up between so many people, some of the moms get less than $1.50 a month, which makes the whole thing seem sort of counterproductive. Now he’s asking the courts for a break, although there’s no word yet on how they’ll respond.
