Tennessee man Desmond Hatchett is pleading with the state to help him with his child support payments. He's fathered some 30 children with 11 different women - and he makes minimum wage.
Buzz 60 breaks down how those payments of his are lookin.
"Hatchett ... already has half of his pay taken by the state and divided among the mothers, with some receiving as little as $1.50 a month!"
And WREG in Memphis reports all 11 women want more money - and the state really can't do that much.
"His oldest child is only 14, his youngest is a toddler. There is nothing the state can do to make him stop having more kids. He has not broken any laws."
And while he technically hasn't broken any laws, he did break his word.
Back in 2009 the Daily Mail reported he was struggling to make payments to his then 21 children - and he promised he would stop having kids.
WVLT has that interview.
Reporter: "Do you intend to keep having children?"
Reporter: "You're done?"
Hatchett: "I'm done. I'll say I'm done."
Reporter: "What made you say that?"
Hatchett: "I didn't intend to have this many. It just happened,"
But just 3 years later - he's fathered 9 more. He also said he fathered four kids in the same year twice! The Los Angeles Times reports Hatchett could hold a new record and that's why the case is getting so much attention.
"...Hatchett is believed to hold the Knox County record for most children. (He'd hold a similar record in most counties in the U.S., which might explain why news of his predicament was pinging around the Internet...)"
There's been plenty of opinion on this story with some people saying the state should give him a vasectomy - and others say its outright child abuse. Dr. Obvious, a contributor for The Huffington Post, offers his advice...
"Spreading a bunch of human seed around does not make you a father. Taking care of the results of that dissemination is what earns the title, "father" Take care of your kids, quit making more, Mr. Hatchett. Become a responsible father."
No word yet on when the judge will rule on Hatchett's petition.
