Brian McKnight
Soul star Brian McKnight has been told to hand over more than $340,000 to a woman who has won a ruling naming the singer the father of her teenage son.

McKnight never filed documents addressing her claim, so the judge has ruled him the father, according to TMZ.com.

"My main goal while constructing my album was to create a different kind of soul album," the Philadelphia native explains. "I wanted to capture diverse sounds that I once jammed to on the radio when I was a kid." T...
