Millionaire Finds Out The Sons He'd Raised For 21 Years Aren't His

Mum pays ex-husband £250,000 after he discovered three sons weren't actually his

Mum pays ex-husband £250,000 after he discovered three sons weren't actually his

After initial denials, she admitted an on-off affair with a colleague during their 20-year marriage, but refused to name him and said they always used contraception.

A millionaire businessman has described how he found out in the most "brutal" way that his three children were not his own on the day that he had cystic fibrosis diagnosed.

The co-founder of price comparison site MoneySupermarket.com had been a doting father to the boys.

It was only in 2016, nearly ten years after they split up, that doctors told him he had cystic fibrosis.

He has twin sons, aged 19, and another son, 23, who did not give a sample for the DNA test.

A court has ordered Mrs. Mason to pay him £250,000 following an extraordinary legal case that has allowed her to keep the identity of the real father a secret. Mr Mason recalls saying: 'You must have got the diagnosis wrong because I've got three sons'.

Despite Kate's insistence on giving all three boys Jewish middle names - even though neither of them followed the faith - and refusal to have them christened, he had no idea he was living a lie.

The case came to light when Mr Mason launched a legal bid to claw back some of the £4 million his wife received in their divorce settlement, as well as suing her for paternity fraud.

"Someone says to you, "All that you know and everything you thought to be solid and true is not real, and never did exist".

But the consultant told Mr Mason that the only father with cystic fibrosis he had ever known later discovered he had been duped by his cheating partner.

"I still see what the boys are doing on Facebook and it's heart-wrenching because we saw the graduation of the eldest on there, but I wasn't invited. In it he will offer a financial reward to anyone who can identify the real father", his new wife, Emma, told The Sun.
