Man Finds Out His Son Is Actually His Uncle Because His Grandad Slept With His Girlfriend
A man has opened up about the devastating moment he discovered his son is actually his uncle.
While some people's family trees can be confusing, it's nothing compared to TikTok user @stacks1400 who discovered his grandfather was sleeping his with girlfriend.
The bloke, whose real name is Samir Simpson-Bey, explained in a video on the social media site how he had to stay with his grandad during a period of time when he was doing it tough.
It was when his girlfriend stepped into the shower that he uncovered years' worth of explicit messages and photos on between the older family member and his partner on her phone.
Samir explained to Newsweek that he confronted both his girlfriend and his grandad about the affair and left the home.
He said: "I have mixed emotions about it now. Loyalty is rare."
Mr Simpson-Bey added that while the knowledge was a difficult burden to bare, he did say he would raise his uncle as if it were his son.
He alluded to the idea this isn't the first time the grandfather has been deceptive with his family.
He said in a video: "Can't believe I expected more from a man that had a whole other family around the corner from my granny house."
Simpson-Bey struggled to hold back tears as he told the world about his bizarre family tree revelation. People were shocked and asked every question under the sun about what happened and how he found out.
But they also offered their sympathies towards the guy who was obviously dealing with a lot.
One person wrote in the TikTok comments section: "I was confused, and now I understand. I want to go back to being confused."
Another added: "I would say love your son regardless. Definitely easier said than done."
A third said: "I'm so sorry. There are so many family secrets. Back in the day people would take the secrets to the grave. Praying for you during this time."
The video Samir uploaded to TikTok has gone absolutely viral and has been watched 11.7 million times. He said people's words of advice and sympathies have kept him going during this difficult time.
