“Bronwyn is a pathological manipulator, an absolute danger to everybody she comes in contact with,” claims Brett about the mother of his 5-year-old daughter.

Brett claims that four or five months after their daughter, Bella, was born, several of his friends told him that Bronwyn was posting pictures on social media calling Brett the father of her child. He claims he contacted Bronwyn immediately and took a DNA test – but that it wasn’t until his fourth test, when the little girl was 3 years old, that it was confirmed that he’s her father.

“I kept asking her to see my daughter. She kept giving me excuse after excuse,” Brett claims. “After weeks of talking, she just quit talking to me, just disappeared. I found out that she had moved out of state, and she was intentionally keeping my daughter’s whereabouts from me.”

That’s when Brett says he went to court to get custody rights. He claims that Bronwyn denied subpoenas and lied to law enforcement, which Bronwyn denies, and he was given physical custody.

“The first time I met my daughter was with a half-dozen sheriffs,” Brett says, recalling the day the sheriffs helped him gain physical custody of the child. “I couldn’t believe the most terrifying moment in my life was made by a 4-year-old child.”
