Is Jason Whittle True a 'Secret Son' of the Actor Patrick Swayze?
Many Sources have revealed that Jason Whittle is the only son of the late actor, Patrick Swayze. However, it's shocking to know an unveiled secret of the Hollywood celebrity. It has been reported that Jason is the consequence of a one-night stand that Patrick had with Bonnie Kay, who was then underage when he was 20 in the early 70s. While Bonnie has gone through cancer already, she was able to tell Patrick that they'd have a son together.
At first, Jason was not considered to be the progeny of the famous actor. Yet to prove otherwise, he did take a DNA test. Patrick's wife, Lisa Niemi, says Patrick had no son, and the allegations were fraudulent. Unfortunately, Swayze passed away from cancer in 2009 and left the entire $40 million worth to his Wife, Niemi.
Is Jason Whittle married? If Yes, then, Who is his Wife?
The former athlete tied the knot with his wife named Natalie Whittle. However, he has not disclosed their wedding date. During their marriage, it has been reported that he has six children with Natalie. But, their details, including names and DOB, are behind the curtains.
Though Whittle was a great football player, he never appeared publicly. Besides, he is not active on social media platforms, including Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. Most probably, he doesn't want to create a mess being publicly available. It looks like he prefers a low-key life. So, all the personal information of the athlete is under wraps.
Maybe, the 45-year-old Jason has a simple delightful life along with his family. However, it has been obtained that he put the surname of Bonnie's mom, his maternal grandmother named Lebetta Whittle.
