I destroyed my entire family for only £80 after buying a DNA kit for a laugh’


By Kayode Sanni-Arewa

A has been left heartbroken after a £80 DNA kit exposed his mum as a cheater – causing a rift throughout his entire family. He explained how he jumped aboard the “bandwagon” and bought testing kits for himself and his dad following the recent “craze” in them.

However, he never expected his results to turn their lives upside down. The 19-year-old said: “We got our results back a few days ago and I went into the DNA relatives section to check out my matches. At the top it listed my dad as only sharing 29.2 per cent DNA with me and being predicted to be a half-brother, which is impossible.

This didn't make sense to me since we also shared a paternal haplogroup and we just look so alike, so he was definitely my .”

The teen later learned he shares 24.6 per cent DNA with his cousin – also predicting her to be his half-sister – as cousins usually shared around 12 per cent.

He added: “I couldn't think of a genetic relationship that would explain what I was seeing and I had doubts in the accuracy of the percentages.

“The shared percentages are extremely accurate and highly unlikely to be false.

“The only realistic explanation for what I was seeing was that my uncle, my cousin's father and my dad's brother, is my father.
