Wealthy Ugandan socialite, Zari Hassan, has once again been attacked by her ex-husband’s relative, King Lawrence, who has now come out to demand that she take her daughter Tiffah for DNA tests to determine the paternity of the baby.

King Lawrence has filed a suit through Web Advocates & Solicitors — a commercial and immigration specialist law firm in Uganda, says Uganda’s Howwe.biz.

The suit seeks to compel Diamond’s partner, Zari Hassan, to take her daughter (Tiffah) for up to three DNA tests to establish the child’s true paternity.

According to a letter addressed to Zari, the firm claims their client, King Lawrence, believes there is a possibility that he sired the child.

“It has come to our client’s attention that you (Zari) have unilaterally decided to offer the paternity of the infant (Tiffah) to one Nasibu Abdul Juma, alias Diamond Platnumz, without considering his (King) strong interests or in fact a real possibility that the child could be his.”

“You have also denied him the slightest access to the child,” reads the letter in part.

The letter adds: “We therefore write to officially request your cooperation in this matter so that our client’s fears that a child that could actually be his is not nurtured, groomed and raised by another man with a completely different culture. Our client needs to put this to rest, in any event.”

King Lawrence’s advocates even shared suggestions for the venues they would want the DNA tests be conducted. He (King) has also offered to foot the cost of the exercise.

“Our client therefore suggests that three paternity tests are run. One in Uganda, one in South Africa and the last in the United States of America so that our client is either confirmed or completely excluded from being the infant’s biological father.

King undertakes to meet all associated costs involved in this process.”

Ivan Ssemwanga’s cousin concludes the letter by saying if Zari will not agree to their demands they would be forced to take further action.

“We believe that this kind request shall be treated with the urgency it deserves but should you not cooperate within seven (7) working days from the date of the receipt of this letter; our instructions are that we take further steps to address our clients.”

King had recently made public his doubts about Tiffah’s paternity by insinuating, through images, that Zari’s ex-husband, Ivan, could be her biological father.
