Comedian Reveals Sam Kinison’s Secret Daughter

Sam Kinison

A comedian and former friend of late comic Sam Kinison revealed Thursday that Kinison was actually the biological father of his own daughter. Carl La Bove revealed the information when he filed a petition to invalidate a child support agreement, now nearly 13 years old, for which he owes almost $188,000.

As a result of his failure to make payments, La Bove has no driver’s license or passport. According to La Bove’s allegations, Sam Kinison had an affair with La Bove’s wife (now ex-wife) during the 1980s.

“I learned to forgive [Sam Kinison] for his actions,” La Bove said in a statement to the press. La Bove opened for Kinison at gigs for several years before the comedian died in 1992.

A hearing on La Bove's petition is scheduled for March 29. La Bove’s DNA testing shows that there is no possibility whatsoever the young lady in question, now 21, is his biological child. Additional tests were completed using DNA from one of Kinison’s brothers, showing that the girl has a 99.8% chance of being related to him.

Two Companies Analyze DNA

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Internet, Misc. Tech, Science,

DNAWant to trace the missing limbs on your family tree? GeneTree, launched this week in beta, offers DNA Test Kits so you can do just that. It has access to records from the Sorenson Molecular Genealogy Foundation which holds over 100,000 samples worldwide. After its research,  the company claims to have a database of 6 million people. For a fee starting at $99.00, GeneTree will send you some mouthwash to swirl, spit, and send back. You can then wait for the rich relatives to claim you on your profile page.

The newly established Ancestry also offers those services, and is building its database from scratch. They have taken profiles of 50,000 individuals and hope to see results in about 6 months. You can then compare your DNA results with others through the site. With a variety of tests available, the service’s cheek swab will set you back at a price beginning at $149.00.

While DNA testing will not tell you everything you need to know, it may lead to information such as names and addresses of those who are related to you. At least you will know if you absolutely have to attend the next family reunion.
