Brian McKnight regrets fathering his three oldest children before marrying his current wife, Dr. Leilani Malia Mendoza.

McKnight fathered two sons, Brian Jr. and Niko, by his first wife, Julia. He also had a daughter, Briana, by another woman while still married to Julia.

In an Instagram video earlier this week, McKnight described his three adult children as “pure evil.”

“I wanna big up my man right here. He gets it,” the singer said in response to a follower who defended McKnight publicly disowning his children.

“In order to live a life that you love, you have to get rid of the evil and the negativity—even if that evil and negativity is related [to you],” McKnight said.

Another Instagram user asked McKnight how his biological daughter, Briana, feels about him referring to Mendoza’s daughter, Julia, as his “one and only daughter.”

“She feels great,” he responded. “See, Julia understands the scripture Exodus 20:12, where it says, and I quote, ‘Honor thy father and thy mother that thy days be long upon the land.’ See, she honors us, and in turn, we honor her because she knows how proud of her we are.”

McKnight replied that his oldest children “are a product of sin.”

“I didn’t raise them their mothers did,” he said.

“Know the whole story before quoting the bible” he added before writing, “Take your inaccurate negativity off my page and try being happy.”

After losing a son in infancy, McKnight and Mendoza welcomed son, Brian Kainoa Makoa Jr. He also adopted her 2 children.

McKnight, who named his eldest son Brian McKnight Jr., legally changed his name to Brian Kainoa Makoa McKnight Sr. to match his youngest son’s name.
