Celebrities keep telling us they are much different than the perception we have for them based on their roles in the public.
Unfortunately, this is often the case, but in a negative connotation.
Namely, many of all those fans of Owen Wilson don’t have a clue that their favorite actor is not the best dad out there,
In fact, he is a very poor father figure when it comes to his daughter.
Namely, the 51-year-old actor had three children, each with a different woman, and while he sees his two sons somewhat regularly, he has never met his daughter.
Wilson pays $25k a month in child support, but he even refused to acknowledge her as his own at first.
His two sons are from two previous relationships.
His daughter was born in October 2018, and his ex, Varunie Vongsvirates, had to file a paternity petition in court in May 2018, as Wilson refused to believe that the little girl, named Lyla Aranya Wilson, was his.
In July 2018, the actor said he didn’t want visitation rights since he did not think baby Lyla, despite the incredible resemblance she has of her father, belonged to him.
Therefore, he ordered a DNA test, which proved that Wilson is the father.
This showed that he has a financial responsibility towards her, so the courts ruled that it was time he starts supporting the child.
Now, Wilson pays $25,000 per month to his ex for Layla’s care and expenses and added his daughter to his Screen Actor’s Guild medical insurance.
Moreover, he also had to pay a one-time amount of $70,000, for a night nurse, labor coach, and his ex’s lawyer fees.
Yet, all decisions related to the child are legally made only by her mother.
As of right now, Wilson wants nothing to do with his daughter or his ex.
Vongsvirates and Wilson signed documents agreeing that they would not slander each other online, in interviews, or in public. The mother has full custody, but a few times, she has mentioned that she still wants her daughter to meet her father.
She was asked whether she has a message for her ex, and she admitted:
“You should see your daughter, she’s incredible, you’re really missing out. She looks just like you.”
According to the mom, Layla needs her father and she deserves his time and attention just as much as his two sons, Ford and Finn.
Let’s just hope that Wilson will come around, and give his daughter all the love she deserves from her own dad.
