Dover, NH (AHN) - Rocker/hunter Ted Nugent is ordered to pay child support to a woman he had a brief affair with in 1995.
Nugent will $3,500.00 a month to Karen Gutowski, who is the mother of the now 10-year old boy.
According to the Foster's Daily Democrat Newspaper in New Hampshire, Nugent was originally served with papers regarding the lawsuit while playing a show with ZZ Top at the Meadowbrook Amphitheater.
Gutowski will have sole custodial rights to the child, but no visitation rights for Nugent have been ordered as of yet.
Oddly enough, on Nugent's own website, it states the guitarist was named "Father of The Year". He has been married to his wife, Shemane, since 1989. they have four children together.

Put not your faith in men (or women).
Say it isn't so Nuge
Teeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed....you gotta wrap that rascal!!
He should refuse to pay such a riduclous amount.
What child needs $3500 a month in support?
I'd tell to judge to lock me up so I can collect my three hots and a cot.
Judges only have the power you give to them....
He would have been much better off if she had simply yanked him and cranked him without waking him up and thanked him.
There goes any good impression I had about him.
I just saw him in Texas at Sean Hannity's live radio show. I wonder when he found out about this son and if his wife knew about it. She is a very pretty women. Why someone cheats I do not understand. But this is a dissapointment since I kind of liked Ted. But no matter, ever since The Bushes let me down when dealing with the Terri Schiavo situation I have come to learn not to think so highly of anyone anymore.
I am suprised he doesnt have 50 cases like this. Of course maybe he does but kept them out of the news.
How about he keep the thing in his pants where it belongs.
He's a married man.
A reference to Creem magazine?
Something is amiss there. It's only June of 2005. Either:
1. the boy is only 9, not 10;
2. the affair was in 1994; or
3. the boy was born very, very prematurely.
Even if the kid were conceived on the very first day of 1995, he couldn't be 10 yet unless his gestation period were less than six months ...
Sorry, sometimes nitpicking takes over my brain.
he shouldn't have put something in that woman...
Excuse me, but refusing to pay child support no matter how high is not lawful and is wrong. The amount in only high cause it is based on how much Ted makes. So, the $3500 is probably not that much considering how much the guy makes a year. I don't see him hurting to hand over that much. And his child does deserve to have the same lifestyle his kids in his marriage do.
Ted has never done any drugs and he doesn't booze.But he has openly addressed his addiction to women and sex.From what I know this is the only case to come out in the last 15 years regarding him and his addiction.
good point, but I'm guessing however old the child is there was a DNA test done and confirmed he is the father.
I think it means the child was born in 1995 and the mother and him had sex in 1994.Something like that.
You owe me a new keyboard!
I would say that he must have been in doubt, which is why he whipped it out, and as you can imaging, a free for all must have ensued.
a rock star having an affair? no way!
If I'm going to be spammed on every thread, I at least want a longer whazzit out of it.
I wonder why she waited 10 years to ask for help?
>>And his child does deserve to have the same lifestyle his kids in his marriage do
This is the biggest myth on earth.
If I was a millionaire, I would buy a house for myself and my wife. We would live in it after kids. The worth and value of the house isn't related to kids (when you make that much money that is).
Children would benefit from MY choices on how I spend MY money. IT's not their money. That's the issue, who decides how the money is spent. Rich kids benefit from how their PARENTS decide to spend the money.
No kid needs $3500 a month to live on.
And what if I'm super rich but a tight wad and spend very little? Some judge is going to say I have to pay $3500 a month when I may not even spend taht in a given month?
Well, than he is a saint than. No drugs and no booze, wow! I am impressed! To bad he can't keep him D*ck in his pants. I'm sure if I was his wife I'd be having my husband tested for STD's since his only addiction is sleeping with other women.
Geeeeez Ted, next time get a hooker AND a pack of condoms
Apparently she didn't. Ted has had this case going since 2003 and in the late 90s was made aware of the child. I am wondering if he is gonna push for some kind of custody of his son.
This is sad. It's incredibly selfish to birth children in bastardry and give no thought to their lives.
imaging = imagine
Ted Nugent and his wife have appeared on TV shows and talked about how much in love they are and how to forgive, make a marriage work, etc. Ted acknowledged wild days back in his rock days and way before his marriage.
I don't know if his wife was aware of this affair when they appeared on the TV shows, including Sean Hannity's. This was within the last year.
Regardless, I wish them the best. Ted Nugent is a REAL American with real, true beliefs and from hearing him talk, a Constitutionalist. What's more, he recorded some damn good rock. I hope things go well for him and his marriage. It is rare to have a rock star/Hollyweird/entertainment personality with right thinking beliefs. Ted Nugent is one of a very rare breed.
No, you get real. Yes, children benefit from their parents lifestyle, but why shouldn't this illegitimate child benefir from it as well. SOrry, i think $3500 for Ted is pocket change and I see no problem with that amount. If mend don't want to be paying that much in child support or any high amount I got news for them, don't share your sperm with someone you don't want to have kids with. Otherwise, get used to shoveling out the dollars. That is how that is solved!
If he was responsible for this young boy's birth...then he is responsible to help financially. That is the bottom line. Like him or not. The children cannot suffer cause dad's don't want to pay for their actions.
Yes, they specifically discussed it.
Well, he should try and get to know this child. If he hasn't up intil now and it is clear he hasn't since no visitation is ordered for him at this time. I think that is sad. Thing is, this child is 10. If he hasn't tried to be involved up till now it really isn't fair to the child for him to file a full visitation suit and go for the max. I think his best route is to slowly get to know this child and involve him with his family. And than maybe over time he can visit more often and feel more confortable with his dad. I would hope that Ted would do this. If he doesn't what a putz!
Conservative family values.....
"I'd tell to judge to lock me up so I can collect my three hots and a cot. Judges only have the power you give to them...."
Never spent much time in domestic court before, have you?
A real America takes care of all their kids and is involved with them.
If he doesn't want to pay, then he should have never slept with her.
I agree with you in principle, but in reality, Ted got away CHEAP. I make 52k, ex-wife makes 40k and I pay $910 a month.
Welcome to Amerika, land of the free...
My professor in family law has a cousin who plays for the MN. Twins. He had a child out of wedlock and paid child support for 12 years. He has since married another and landed a major, multi-million dollar contract. When the mama heard about his contract she proceeded to take him back to court to increase the child support payments. Her request was so outlandish that the judge ordered DNA tests since they were never married and the amount was so high. Well, lo and behold...the boy wasn't his.
This gold-diggin' rag managed to destroy a few peoples lives for the sake of the almighty dollar.
The Nuge should've kept it in his pants but ANY woman that gets pregnant these days without being married first, [and even back 10 years ago when this affair took place] is looking for a husband or a bundle of money. Especially when the man is famous.
Do you have children?
Of course not. What's your point?
What i guess Ted was supposed to be Perfect ?
It's possible he has some good points. We all make mistakes.
