Terry Turnage, the Memphis man we mentioned recently for fathering 26 children by as many as 20 women in two states, was charged Tuesday in Forrest City for failure to pay support for an Arkansas child. He'll have a court date later. From that news account:

Miesha Davis, 23, mother of their 2-year-old, says Turnage was ordered to pay her $60 a week for the child, but so far she hasn’t seen a dime.

After some investigating into his personal life, Davis found out why.

“It got to me when he said, ‘You’re my Forrest City girlfriend.’ I was like, ‘Your girlfriend in Forrest City?’ I was like, ‘How many girlfriends you got somewhere else?’”

Turnage reportedly divides his time between Memphis and Forrest City because of his work in the club business.

He told a Memphis judge he was broke, but reportedly flaunts a lavish lifestyle around town and on Facebook.

He flashes wads of money, puts his name on luxury cars and after a recent big birthday bash at his club bragged about having a $250 bottle of Hennessy. He said 700 people turned out for the two-day event.

Smoking Gun has more on Turnage's complicated family affairs. The video includes interviews with a couple of Forrest City mothers.
