My evil ex got a DNA test WRONG to try and get sole custody of our daughter

A DAD has opened up about how his twisted ex tried to fob him off with a fake DNA test to claim their daughter wasn’t his.

Michael Brown, 45, said ex-partner Laura Jackson emailed him the wrong results nine months after the birth of their three-year-old daughter.

They appeared to be from a professional genetics company, along with a message from Ms Jackson – formerly Ms French – which read: “Michael, you have no rights to her.

“It has been proven that you are not her father.”

The report, which has since been proven false, found a 99.9996 percent probability that another man, “Callum Jack,” was the father of Michael’s child.

But Michael, from Basingstoke, Hants, had never heard of him – and having already faced a grueling legal battle over joint custody of his daughter, he sensed something was wrong.

“I didn’t believe it,” he told Sun Online.

“There was a tiny chance it was true, but I just thought I’ve got to fight it now.

“I thought I had to tell my kids that they might not have a little sister anymore.”

He added, “My heart sank — I knew from that moment I wouldn’t be able to see my daughter.”

The alleged DNA report appeared to be signed by three PhD professors and contained no reference to Michael on the form.

And the father-of-six, who had been in a “tumultuous” on-off relationship with wife Jackson, 31, for about two years, had no reason to believe his ex ever had a relationship with the other man listed.

He explained: “I did a little more research and found that it was simply a DNA report that you can order online.

“You just tell them ‘I want those names in there,’ and then an hour later you get a report.

“It’s really disgusting. I was shocked that she would do that.”

After making the shocking discovery, Michael brought the matter up in family court.

He then had to undergo a court-approved DNA test.

After submitting his swabs and eagerly awaiting the results, it was determined that Michael had a 99.999 percent chance of being his daughter’s paternal father.

Ms Jackson pleaded guilty to two counts of committing an act or series of acts with intent to pervert the course of public justice – namely, making a false statement in a police interview and making a false statement under oath.

The mother-of-three was sentenced to 12 months in prison at Winchester Crown Court in February this year – three years after she gave Michael the fake results.

‘EMOTION & HEART PAIN’

“That was a relief,” Michael said.

“My wife had just found out she was pregnant with twins when this fake report was presented to us.

“The price was time, emotion and heartache.”

The remarried father now lives at home with his “happy and healthy” daughter, who is adjusting to life away from her mother again.

But Michael is concerned that others in his position may receive similar incorrect results – and not realize they have been duped.

“I was shocked when the penny dropped that you could actually just buy a fake report and fill in the details of the names and results you want,” he said.

“I just thought it’s so easy for people. It looks convincing. I thought, oh my god, there could be a lot of them out there.

“There could be a lot of people affected who don’t know.”

A Hampshire Police spokesman said: “We have been investigating an allegation of perverting the course of justice after a report was made in August 2019.

“A 30-year-old woman took part in a voluntary police interview in April 2021.

“Laura Jackson, 30, was later charged with two counts of committing an act or series of acts with intent to pervert the course of public justice.”

Did you get a questionable DNA result?

If you have received a DNA result that you believe is incorrect, you have the right to challenge the results.

If you use the results as evidence in court, you must use an accredited testing laboratory. Otherwise the results will not be accepted.

If you suspect illegal activity, you can also contact the police by dialing 101.

The state-accredited test centers are:
