Who are Eian's parents?

Well, Eian was born to Chimara P. Smith, and LeVar. His parents met around 1979 and had a one-night stand.

Chimara got pregnant but decided to keep her pregnancy from LeVar.

LeVar only came to know about Eian and that he became a father only after Chimara informed him about his birth when Eian was three.

LeVar then asked for a DNA test to confirm that he was, indeed, his son. 

His father then asked the court to legally declare that Eian was his baby in the 1983 paternity suit. 

Not only this, but he asked for joint custody as well. He also wanted to pay child support amounting to $600 every month.

Back in 1984, his mother gained custody of him. He was living with his mother but also visiting his father.

In June 1985, shocking news surfaced where Chimara accused LeVar of kidnapping her son.

Apparently, the artist kidnapped Eian, who was just four years old then. 

Eian went on two weeks of vacation with his father, and according to an agreement, LeVar was to return the kids as soon as the vacation ended. 

However, Chimara confronted that LeVar neither returned her son nor called her to inform her about the change of plan. 

While on the other side, LeVar's agent claimed that the lady called LeVar and said to take their child as she could not handle him.
