Actor Mr. T (pictured), whose actual name is Laurence Tureaud, was reportedly sued by an alleged illegitimate son, Alexander Taylor, for abandonment and emotional scarring that supposedly caused him to join a gang, reports RadarOnline.
The lawsuit against Mr. T was filed last June. Taylor, who is 25 years old, is reportedly Mr. T and Vanessa Taylor’s child. Instead of providing love and shelter, Taylor claimed that the actor and former star of the ’80s hit TV show “The A Team,” “neglected and abused” him during his childhood.
The court documents state that Taylor spent quite a bit of time with his dad, with the trademarked jewelry-clad Mr. T often taking him to preschool. “At the time, Alexander was unaware that his father was famous; he was just a proud little boy…. Then all of a sudden, Mr. T walked out of Alexander’s life and never looked back,” the legal complaint states.
