It seems Nathaniel Smith did not have much time to enjoy his new found fame.
The Dayton father of 27 who appeared on Friday’s episode of “Divorce Court” was booked into Montgomery County Jail Sunday at 2:45 a.m., according to jail record.
Dayton police arrested Smith on a failure to appear warrant related to a Montgomery County juvenile court division case.
Details about that case were not immediately available. We are working to get more information.
Smith, a local poet and performer who goes by the stage names of Brave Nate, FlexLuthor and Hustle Simmons, shocked the audience on Divorce Court after being asked about the number of children he has fathered.
“Your honor, I’ve got 12 sons and 15 daughters. I have 27 all together,” Smith said.
The 39-year-old was on the reality court show with his 23-year-old wife Jasmine Cotton.
Cotton accused Smith of adultery and preying on younger women.
“He thinks this is a game. He is trying to make y’all laugh. It’s not about this. It is about my kids and the 27 kids he keep making and leaving,” a tearful Cotton said on the show. “It is not fair that he do this to women. I am young and I know y’all asked me why I got married. I loved him, but at the end of the day I am not going to keep playing games with him.”
Smith denied accusations that he does not take care of his children.
We contacted him via Facebook messaging Friday, but Smith said he would contact this reporter when he became available. He never called.
