The 2 continued their relationship and, two years later, the lady became pregnant again. This time, she said, she told Mr. Walker she desired to have the kid. But Mr. Walker didn’t, and again made the case that the time was not right. The connection ended on Sept. 16, 2011, in line with her paternity suit. Her son was born the next May.
In an interview, a friend who lived in Atlanta on the time described consoling the lady through her morning sickness before her abortion and supporting her afterward. Years later, when the lady was pregnant again, she disclosed in phone and in-person conversations that Mr. Walker had asked her to finish the pregnancy but she was adamant that she wouldn’t, in line with the friend.
Mr. Walker also appears to have been involved with two other women around this time. In an interview within the December 2011 issue of Playboy magazine, he identified Julie Blanchard, who’s now his wife, as his fiancée. And in January 2012, Myka Dean, then a shareholder along together with her mother in Mr. Walker’s company Renaissance Man, in line with financial records, filed a police report in Irving, Texas, wherein she said that for 20 years she had been in an “on-off-on-off” relationship with Mr. Walker. (Ms. Dean, who died in 2019, told the police that Mr. Walker threatened her after she told him that she wanted to this point other people. Mr. Walker denied the allegation through a spokeswoman in April.)
The lady interviewed by The Times said Mr. Walker never physically abused her.
In April 2013, the lady filed for child support in Manhattan when she was a graduate student at Columbia University and “struggling to make ends meet,” in line with a press release from her lawyer on the time. Mr. Walker was initially ordered to make payments, first of $2,500 a month and later of $3,500 a month. The ultimate order of kid support was not issued until July 2014, in line with court records. Mr. Walker has made his payments on time, the lady said.
Mr. Warnock has also been involved in a toddler custody dispute. His ex-wife sued in April to regulate the terms of their agreement and increase payments to account for the income he earns as a senator and as lead pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta. A spokeswoman for the Warnock campaign declined to comment for this text.
