Marjorie De Sousa Demands DNA Test, Julián Gil Reacts

Julián Gil and Marjorie de Sousa continue their ongoing feud and this time the stakes just got higher. The telenovela actress has asked for a paternity test, not to prove that Gil is the father because she has no doubt of that, but according to Univision Entretenimiento, it's to make it clear that Julián is the father of Matías. He has already reacted to the news on social media writing: "I am surprised by this decision. There will be a time where I'll be able to talk about this with all of you, for now I can assure you that in my hear there's no doubt that Matías is my son and I am willing to do the test when they ask me to."

Gil and De Sousa have been involved in an ugly legal battle over child support. The DNA test comes on the heels of the former's lawyers asking the judge to lower the percentage Gil has to pay out from 20% to 4%. Recently, Marjorie's team slammed Julián for not paying his part.  "Since March he has not given absolutely anything," she said in an "Hoy" interview. Since [the baby] was born he has only given 16,000 Mexican pesos [$900 dollars], six diaper packages, two cans of milk, two bottles of water, that's all he's given the baby. Starting in April he has not given anything."

Marjorie's team also added: "He has also not wanted to see the baby, he asked the visits to be canceled until the 14th, I think he's at the beach, he's on vacation and he hasn't seen his son either." The latter seemed like an attempt to tarnish Julián Gil's image in the public eye as he had previously stated he had talked to the judge and excused himself from the visitations due to work in the U.S.

Earlier in the year Julián Gil won a battle after asking to see his son. A judge ruled that the actor could see Matias only an hour a week. "All I have asked for is to be able to see him," he told "Dando Candela." "If at this moment they only allow me to see him for an hour, that is what I will do. In all this process what I am fighting for is the rights of my son. I don't think a father should be limited to seeing their child unless they are a delinquent where a father represents a danger to the child, but if they are not a danger, the healthiest thing is to have a normal relationship."

After weeks of rumors, Marjorie de Sousa confirmed in April she had split from Julián Gil. "The relationship with Julián Gil has come to an end," she said in the statement. "There have been many versions, including statements from my team that were never offered. Nobody has said anything about the situation, for respect to my son, the public who I work for and because we are public figures that are exposed to personal situations like this that are not enjoyable to share and that at times one can judge without knowing." "There's a legal process from both sides, even though from my part I looked for an amicable and personal dialogue, that was not the case from the other party and that is why my team of attorneys will take care of everything, along with the Mexican law, that is where my son was born. They will decide how things go from now on."
