Actor Eddie Murphy, Citigroup CEO Richard Parsons, former budget director Peter Richard Orszag and even former American Senate John Edwards have ever been involved in great love child scandals.
Rev. Jesse Jackson
Jesse Jackson, an American civil rights activist and Baptist minister, was involved in a big scandal when the news of his illegitimate 20-month-old daughter broke in 2001.
He then decided to take a respite from the public eye as well as said he loved this child very much and was responsible for her emotional and financial support since she was born.
Karin Stanford, mother of Jesse Jackson’s daughter, told that Jesse was concerned about her daughter just like any father would be, he checked on her, he came to visit her and he played with her.
Jesse Jackson paid $4,000 a month in child support for his illegitimate daughter
Though former Spice Girl Melanie Brown claimed Eddie Murphy father her newborn daughter, the talented actor fiercely denied the allegation by stating he didn’t know the child till a blood test was done. Two months later, the DNA testing proved Eddie's paternity.
The actor finally admitted his illegitimate child
In 2009, Richard Parsons, CEO of Citigroup, tried his best not only to maintain the financial giant afloat during the national economic crisis but also solve the problem of his private life when the father of three grown children had a love affair with model-philanthropist MacDella Cooper and the result of this relationship was a child.

Peter Richard Orszag
Peter Orszag, the former director of the Office of Management and Budget, dated Claire Milonas, daughter of a Greek shipping magnate, until the spring of 2009. Before their separation, Claire was pregnant and Orszag said he would marry her, but the couple broke up. She gave birth to their child just six weeks before Orszag announced his engagement to ABC News correspondent Bianna Golodryga.
In November 2009, Claire gave birth to a beautiful and healthy baby girl
John Edwards, former American Senate, denied fathering daughter of former campaign videographer Rielle Hunter. He even claimed, “I am and have been willing to take any test necessary to establish the fact that I am not the father of any baby, and I am truly hopeful that a test will be done so this fact can be definitively established." Unfortunately, John was biological father of this daughter after the DNA test was done.
To cover his tracks, John felt sorry when he denied his daughter and expected she would forgive him
