Relationships aren’t always as clean and simple as we’d like them to be. It doesn’t take much to ruin one, no matter how careful we try to be. However, there are clearly some people who have no regards for the consequences at all.
TikTok user @StackS1400, real name Samir Simpson-Bey, posted a video with some shocking news. He had recently discovered that his son was actually his uncle. Apparently, his grandfather was the child’s biological dad.
“Found out my son was really my uncle,” the TikTok user shared. “My granddad was f***ing my (girlfriend) the whole time we (were) staying with him.” According to Simpson-Bey, this was not the first time his grandfather had been infidel. Apparently, the older man used to have “a whole other family” living beside his grandmother’s when Simpson-Bey was younger.
The video garnered questions from viewers and the TikTok user took the time to answer them. The common question was how he discovered the relationship. Simpson-Bey explained that they had started living with his grandfather after the younger man “fell on hard times”. He hadn’t known anything was wrong, until one day, when he was using his girlfriend’s phone, a message popped up from his grandfather. When he checked the phone, the TikTok user discovered that his grandfather and his girlfriend had been exchanging messages, pictures and explicit material for several years.
The discovery came as a shock, but he felt he should have seen it coming. According to Simpson-Bey, his grandfather has had relationships with his family members’ girlfriends before. In an interview with Daily Dot, he said his reaction to finding out was, “Wow, my grandfather has done it again.” Simpson also shared that his grandfather and father have not had a relationship since his father was a teenager.
The TikTok user said he would not be doing a paternity test; he doesn’t see a need to. Although initially, he had stated he still wanted to connect with his ‘son’, Simpson-Bey has changed his mind. “I have several other children,” he shared.
While his grandfather and girlfriend are definitely in the wrong, the child can’t help who his real parents are. Hopefully, Simpson-Bey can look past that. After all, no child should have to bear the sins of their parents.
