What does one do when his/her father denies being the father of the child? What does the person in question do when the father continues to deny it in spite of a positive paternity DNA test? This is what happened with Lisa Brennan-Jobs whose father, the Apple co-founder Steve Jobs had refused to accept that he is the father of the child borne by Chrisann Brennan.
Thirty-nine-year-old Lisa Brennan-Jobs is a reputed American writer who gained the love of her father only after she was 9 years old. So what is their story and how did the reconciliation process take place? Let us find out!
Lisa Brennan birth, age, early fatherless life
Lisa Brennan-Jobs was born as Lisa Nicole Brennan on 17 May 1978 in All One Farm commune outside of Portland, Oregon, the USA. Her mother is Chrisann Brennan who was the first girlfriend of Steve Jobs.
The two had met at Homestead High School in Cupertino, California in the year 1972 and for 5 years they had dated but it was a rollercoaster ride for both the lovers.
Just as Apple was about to take off, the couple moved into a house along with their friend Daniel Kottke. Chrisann became pregnant and claimed that Steve was the father of this unborn child. But Steve refused to take it and Chrisann left the house.
In 1978, she moved to the All One Farm commune for her delivery. Steve Jobs came only 3 days after the child was born. The couple named the child as Lisa. But Steve publicly denied that he was the father of the child. An upset mother slapped a legal case of Steve Jobs.
The DNA paternity test proved that he indeed was the father of the child. Steve was to pay $ 385 per month for the child’s maintenance which he did. He increased to $ 500 per month when he became a billionaire with the launch of Apple and its success.
Similarly, Steve continued to maintain that he was not the father of the child stating that the test may be right only in 94.1% of the cases. He said at that time:
“28% of the male population of the United States could be the father.”
In spite of being fatherless for all practical purposes, Lisa and Chrisann continued with their life and Lisa studied at The Nueva School.
