A radio host claiming to be the son of William Shatner is suing the ‘Star Trek’ actor for $170 million and demands he take a DNA test.
The 59 year old has demanded William to have a DNA test, stop saying he isn’t his dad and the lawsuit claims the actor ”admitted he was the plaintiff’s father”, according to New York Post’s Page Six column.
Peter claims in the lawsuit, filed in Florida, that William’s comment came when they met on the set of police drama TV series ‘T.J. Hooker’, but shortly afterwards a representative for the star contacted him and said he was ”totally denying paternity at this point”.
He alleges the rep also told him: ”Don’t go public … [as it] could be horrendous for [William].”
Peter added to the publication: ”I am William Shatner’s son, and I just wish he would acknowledge me.”
But a rep for William insisted: ”Mr. Shatner has three lovely daughters, but no sons … Mr. Shatner is aware of the lawsuit, but there’s nothing there because he isn’t his father.”
