Man denies child after alleged cheating incident
After 40-year-old Roland Reid* caught his former fianceť at a 'sex-shop' with another man and was told by his landlord's grandson that he slept with her for about a month, Reid wants a DNA report on his two-year-old daughter.
Reid, a bus driver by profession, told THE STAR that he and his former fianceť, 34-year-old Kendra Bellare now separated and a DNA test is the only glimpse of hope for a reunion.
The couple, who fell in love on a bus in 2006, say within three months of their friendship, they started having sex and got engaged.
However, tales of lies, jealousy and infidelity are now being blamed for their separation.
He said: We met on a bus, and it was all smiles cause while on the bus she had a bag that kept falling on me and so jokingly I told her that she will have to pay my fare. We eventually exchanged numbers and things got steamy from there.
She said: We met on a bus coming from St Elizabeth but we had an edgy relationship because he was always accusing me of seeing other people and he was just too jealous.
For Roland the main problem he had with Kendra was that; "... She was too lie. One of the first things that caused me to get suspicious was that when we started living together she would hide and talk on her phone like 1 a.m. She would hide her phone under the pillow or in her clothes as if I would search her phone.
A laughing Bell had a different side of the story as she felt Reid's jealousy and insecurity were overbearing.
She said: Most of the times when him start to get nagging, that is the time when I would find somewhere to go because I just couldn't deal with that part of his personality. I remember one time I went by my aunt and during the middle of the night, I found out that he was in nearby bushes watching the house. The funny part about that scenario is that he eventually turned up at my aunt's door as if he wasn't sneaking around and I didn't tell him that I saw him earlier.
In terms of the incident where Roland claims he caught her at a motel with another man, he said; "I am not an abusive man and I used to support her because she wasn't working. We got in an argument about the rent money she did use and she said that she was going to replace it. She dressed up the evening and said that she was going to see a friend and I trailed her on a taxi only to realise that she went to meet a man and they went to a sex shop that I didn't know exist.
She said: I had used the money to buy some back-to-school stuff for my son from a previous relationship and he was on top of his voice saying dat I should find back the money. So yes, I went to see a friend at a small hotel and I was going to sleep there for the night and leave in the morning because I didn't have anywhere to go.
Bell further said that she and the male friend were just having a talk and they had no intentions to have sex.
However, Reid said that the only reason Bell didn't have sex with the so called male friend was because he trailed her and knocked on their room door.
He said: When I knocked on the door, a man opened the door and I later found out that she was hiding in the bathroom. Di owners for the place had to call security and the police on me because she started calling me her 'ex'. The police eventually took us to the station and counselled us.
She said: Listen, is only one time me cheat on him with the landlord grandson and that was during the time that he was pushing me away and he started inviting another woman over the house. There and then, I drifted and I got close with the person I cheated with.
He said: The landlord grandson confessed because I am respected in my area. He told me that when me gone a work him and she had sex for about one month straight.
Bell said that cheating caused their relationship to be unstable and so she moved out and then moved back in.
She said: The child is his, but I couldn't really live there anymore and so I left for good when he found out I was pregnant. He started to demand sex during the pregnancy. He said that I must give him oral sex because I give away him ting.
He said: She just never want to deal wid me. The child is in my name and I am supporting the child but based on an ultrasound I had done, it show dat she got pregnant when we were not having sex and she is not truthful.
She said: Him say that I must give him another chance but I don't know. People say that the child look like him, a just him have doubts.
He said: The child don't look anything like me. The baby is the dead stamp of her mother. She is the one who wants us to get back together but she said that she is presently seeing someone else. I guess the relationship depends on the DNA test.
