Xiao's teacher, surnamed Chen, told Jiangxi Morning Daily the father remained in contact with the school but refused to pick up the boy.

Chen later stopped by the man's home but discovered it was empty.

Police contacted Xiao's grandfather and uncle, who both declined to pick him up, according to reports.

The boy remained at the school for 5 days until his biological mother picked him up this week.

Users on China's social media platform Weibo expressed outrage at the news.

Some offered to adopt the boy. One person wrote, "Other people's children are pampered like babies, but [he] has to face the cruelty of the adult world."

Maury Povich, 83, announced his retirement after 31 seasons, Deadline reports. The Maury Povich Show launched in 1991. The name was shortened to Maury in the 1990s.

Povich is best known for providing free paternity tests to guests, before dramatically advising them, "You Are (or Are Not) the Father!"

"Six years ago when I was ready to retire, my NBCUniversal family asked me to continue the show," Povich tells Deadline.

"Even though I told them I was ready for assisted living, out of loyalty to NBCUniversal and my more than 100 staff and crew members, Tracie Wilson and I agreed to one more deal. I'm so proud of my relationship with NBCUniversal and all those who worked on the Maury show but as I occasionally tell my guests on Maury, 'Enough, already!'"

Tracie Wilson, EVP, NBCUniversal Syndication Studios, added, "Maury and I decided two years ago that this season would be the farewell season for the show, and while his retirement is bittersweet, we are so happy for him to be able to spend more time on the golf course. Maury is a television icon, a pop culture legend and we couldn't be more proud to have been a part of his incredible career."

A DNA test has removed all doubt that Tristan Thompson is the father of Houston fitness trainer Maralee Nichols' baby boy.

Tristan immediately took responsibility for his promiscuous behavior after receiving the test results.

In an Instagram post, he confirmed he fathered the boy -- born on December 1.

"Today paternity test results reveal that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols," he wrote. The 30-year-old NBA star apologized to his long-suffering baby mama, Khloe Kardashian, 37.

"You don't deserve this," he told Khloe, who looked unbothered as she left a Kardashian family Christmas photo shoot last month.

"Today paternity test results reveal that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols. I take full responsibility for my actions.

"Now that paternity has been established, I look forward to amicably raising our son. I sincerely apologize to everyone I've hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publicly and privately."

Tristan is the father of Khloe's only child, a 3-year-old daughter named True Thompson. Khloe is pictured leaving her daughter's dance class with BFF Malika Haqq and her son, Ace.

Nichols, 31, filed for child support after moving from Houston to California, where she gave birth.

Her attorney felt vindicated. "There was never any doubt that Tristan Thompson was the father of Maralee Nichols' baby," attorney Harvey Englander told DailyMail.com in a statement.

"Tristan made numerous false and defamatory statements and declarations about Maralee over the past few months, and she is taking his contrite statement today in the context of all of those statements."

The baby makes three children by three women for the promiscuous athlete. Tristan fathered a son, Prince, with his ex-girlfriend and Instagram model, Jordan Craig, in 2016.

A Texas judge has dismissed a paternity lawsuit filed by Tristan Thompson against Maralee Nichols -- which he filed in response to her lawsuit against him in California.

A source told Us Weekly magazine that both Thompson, 30, and Nichols, 31, testified via a virtual hearing on Wednesday, Dec. 15. Page Six reported that the case was sealed online after the Sacramento Kings star sought a gag order against Nichols.

Nichols claims she gave birth to Thompson's son in December 2021 following a torrid 5-month relationship with the NBA star.

"Regardless of whether any act of conception occurred in Texas that could have led to the conception of the child, [Thompson and Nichols allegedly] had a lengthy relationship spanning multiple states," Us Weekly's source said.

However, Thompson, through his attorneys, disputes the timeline. Thompson claims he had sexual intercourse with Nichols twice on his birthday -- March 13 -- in a Houston hotel room.

He asked the court to move Nichols' suit from California to Houston, where she owns property.

But the judge dismissed his suit and said the case should be heard in California where Nichols allegedly birthed the child and where she currently resides.

Thompson has demanded a paternity test, but Nichols has yet to comply. She filed for child support earlier this year, before the baby was allegedly born.

Congratulations are in store for retired rapper Shad Moss, formerly known as Bow Wow.

A DNA test has confirmed that the reality TV star is the father of a baby boy that he publicly denied on social media.

On Friday, a family court judge confirmed Shad is the father of Stone Kamin, who was born in 2020 to Instagram model Alexis Sky, 34.

A paternity test was ordered by the Fulton County (Georgia) court after Shad denied he was Stone's father.

After a 60-day conference via Zoom, the family court division was satisfied that Shad was indeed Stone's father and the baby would be removed from the state's welfare rolls.

The court also declared that little Stone would "be known as Stone Moss."

"It is the judgment of this court that the child of the parties, Stone Kamin, born in 2020, is hereby declared the legitimate son of respondent, Shad Moss, capable of inheriting from the respondent in the same manner as if born in wedlock."

The court also granted Shad, joint custody and weekend visitation rights to the infant.

Despite all that, Shad still took to social media to deny fathering Stone, and claimed he only had one legitimate child, a daughter named Shai, by his former girlfriend Joie Chavis.

He had nothing nice to say about IG model Alexis, the mother of his youngest child.

He said, "this shit is trash! Stick to your day job... wait u don't have 1 damn. How u live in [A]Lanta and cant get a job. They handing them s*** out like stem checks [sic]".

But he wasn't always so heartless toward his flesh and blood.

After Stone was born last April, Shad shared a sweet photo of the infant with his big sister, Shai, on his Instagram Stories. He captioned the photo with a king and heart emoji.

Shad was equally bitter toward his ex-girlfriend Kiyomi Leslie, who was rumored to have aborted his third child.

The ex-couple were arrested by Atlanta police after a vicious fight in their apartment following the Super Bowl in 2019.

Kiyomi, 30, has since moved on. In March, the Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta star welcomed a baby with NFL player Justin Hardy.

Rapper Future Hendrix has run out of excuses and time. A Georgia judge ordered him to take a DNA test to determine if he fathered Instagram model Eliza Seraphin's daughter, Reign.

Bossip reports the judge ordered Future to undergo DNA testing within the month or face penalties.

The father of 8 or 9 was also ordered to submit his income and other financial documents to the court within the next 10 days or face possible sanctions.

Seraphin told the court she served Future with the paternity suit three times and the last contact was 45 days ago.

Meanwhile, the 36-year-old rapper is busy traveling the world with his latest sexual conquest, Steve Harvey's stepdaughter Lori Harvey.

Seraphin believes Future has earned over $19 million in 2019, and she wants her cut for their daughter.

In his response to the court, Future accused Seraphin of calling their 9-month-old daughter Reign a "check baby."

Future's lawyers defined a "check baby" as urban slang for conceiving a child for the sole purpose of profiting financially by extorting money from a wealthy sperm donor.

Additionally, the 36-year-old rapper alleges that Eliza took fertility pills to ensure she would get pregnant.

Court documents obtained by TMZ shows that Future spoke with a friend of Eliza's, who confessed that Eliza researched the total amount of child support he pays to his other baby mamas.

In a social media post on Wednesday, Seraphin denied calling her daughter a "check baby."

One of rapper Future's baby mamas has accused him of attempting to make one of his paternity suits go away by paying her hush money.

Cindy Renae Parker filed papers in a Texas court in October, seeking to have the promiscuous rapper take a DNA test to prove he fathered her baby son Legend.

The 36-year-old hip-hop star, real name Nayvadius Wilburn, has refused to acknowledge the child, who was born in July 2019.

In a recent Instagram post, Parker suggested Future contacted her to have her quit talking publicly about the paternity case.

She first posted a quote, which read: "Do it. Because your kids deserve a mother they can brag about."

In the accompanying caption, Parker wrote, "I know one day Legend will be proud I fought for him & didn't accept 'hush money' to keep him hidden."

Parker has since deleted the post, but she left the results of a DNA test indicating her son is related to another of Future's alleged kids online.

Parker and Florida resident Eliza Seraphin (pictured), who is also suing the rapper over paternity of her baby girl Reign, have become allies. The ladies had genetic testing done on their children to determine if they are half siblings.

"DNA testing was done to determine siblingship of the alleged siblings," read the medical document. "Based on testing results obtained from analyzes of the DNA test listed, the probability of half-siblingship is 99.999996%.

Testing further determined with a high degree of certainty that the children were fathered by the same man.

Alongside the results, Parker vowed to keep Eliza and Reign in her son's life: "Legend can be avoided. Even the court system can be avoided," she wrote. "However, one thing that is for sure, is charity starts at the home and family is everything, regardless of the circumstances."

Future, who is reportedly dating live-in model Lori Harvey, insists he only fathered six kids with five different women, including his five-year-old son, also named Future, with ex-fiancee Ciara.
