Clayton Echard breaks silence on paternity test

The alleged mother will take her part on October 2. The results will take approximately a week to determine if Clayton is or is not the father.
At the bottom of the post, Clayton said, “This is the timeline. The truth will always set you free.”
The back and forth and allegations
Clayton Echard has continued to deny that he was ever even intimate with the woman who filed the court documents. According to her, they shared one night together before he told her he wasn’t ready for a relationship. They met while she was trying to find some real estate.
