Alaskan Bush People’s star, Bear Brown, is seeking joint custody of her newborn son with ex-boyfriend Raiven Adams, if a DNA test proves he is the father, the Sun may reveal exclusive.
Raiven Adams, 22, welcomed her son, River Anthony, on March 9, 2020 and raised him alone, as Bear Brown, 31, was not present at birth and has yet to meet him.
In judicial documents obtained exclusively from The Sun, Bear, whose real name is Solomon, filed a complaint to establish paternity on March 12.
The Alaskan Bush People star wrote in the court filing: “If Solomon is, in fact, the biological father of the child, legal and physical custody, the visit and all related matters should be determined.
If Bear Brown is the father, he argued that it is “in the best interest of the minor child that Solomon obtains joint legal custody” and “shared physical custody” of River.
He demands that he, Raiven and River undergo a genetic DNA test to confirm that he is the father. Raiven has not yet responded to the request.
The complaint came after the Sun reported exclusively that the star of reality had filed a petition for restoration of paternity on March 12.
But Bear Brown claimed the petition was a “court error”.
He wrote on Instagram: “I’m not trying to unlearn as River’s father, I’m trying to establish myself as her father, so I can have equal rights as a parent!
“When my petition was filed there was a mistake in the order, it should have said that I am trying to establish myself as River’s father! NOT to establish myself!” Raiven Adams has been in the hospital every day since his son was born, as he was born several weeks prematurely.
Raiven Adams filed a restraining order against Bear Brown in February, accusing him of showing “erratic” and “abusive” behavior. He dropped the restraining order three days before the birth of his son.
Despite the paternity claim, Bear Brown claimed in social media that he was the baby’s father. He claimed he was informed of River’s birth only days later.
But Raiven Adams responded by stating that he “mentally abused her for months” and that she tried to contact him during labor and after the birth. Raiven sent text messages where she told him, “Call me.
Bear Brown also claimed he didn’t see River because she wants to protect him in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. He wrote on social media, “Hey, everybody! I just wanted to let you know that I’d be with River if I could, but with everything going on with this virus, it would just put him in danger!
But Raiven vowed to “keep his son away” from Bear, as he urged fans to see his side. She wrote on Instagram in March: “Too many people talk after hearing only part of the story.
“Judging a situation without being present and knowing the real facts ruins lives and relationships, so it’s better to know the whole story before you attack someone and make false accusations.
