[Blind Gossip] There may be an investigation soon into an odd relationship between a notable adult man and a child.
The adult man says that the teenage boy who has been living with him is his son.
What the… ?
Dad is a single man, nearly 40, never married… and this is the first time he has ever mentioned having a child.
How did this “son” happen?
I can’t find the paperwork on this one for either adoption or fostering.
Nor is the child related to him.
Basically, there is no “legal” reason for the child to be in his home.
Can an adult – even one who is prominent – take in a minor and simply proclaim himself the “parent” of the child?
Is this like Bruce Wayne taking in the young Dick Grayson as his ward so they can become the dynamic duo of Batman and Robin?
In addition, the adult man in this story has a history of alcohol abuse. And he’s a politician.
Both of those conditions seem to make a person more prone to lying.
And that’s no joke.
We can’t say for sure that there is something nefarious going on. Perhaps everyone is on the up and up and and there is simply some paperwork glitch that is being worked out.
However, for the time being, something is odd here.
And a little creepy.
Holy moly, Caped Crusader! We need to solve this mystery! To The Batmobile!

[Optional] What do you think is really going on here?
Easy peasy. Gaetz produces the adoption papers and this problem goes away.
Oh damn until this moment I really thought Matt Gaetz was married with other kids. Okay that’s totally weird and fishy!
I’m not sure why people aren’t asking about the kid’s legal status here. We’re just supposed to believe that a 12 year old CHILD legally immigrated from Cuba in 2014 and has been living with someone with no guardianship of him? I haven’t even been able to get kinship guardianship of my cousin’s children in foster care in a different state because florida DCFS doesn’t want to place them out of state. There’s no way he’s just living with MG under the table.
Matt Gaetz. I just don’t see the problem. The boy lived with him since age 12 and continues to do so. He is the brother of ex-girlfriend. I think it’s admirable of MG to continue offering a stable home environment to the boy while Nestor continued his schooling and adapting to America. The fact that MG and the girlfriend broke up is irrevelant. He did a good thing – if he was a Democrat, he would be held up as a poster boy of how everyone should treat immigrants. Just saying….
This is def. Matt Gaetz. I can’t believe this guy is in office.
For those who don’t know or remember: Matt Gaetz is the ONLY person who voted no on the anti-human trafficking bill. His reasoning is very suspect. He doesn’t want law enforcement to collaborate w/ anti-trafficking groups. One has to wonder “why?”
I know of two cases where an adult man raised a young man not related to him. In one case, it was the son of his ex-live-in girlfriend. In another case it was a gay man, who took a 14-year-old hustler off streets and into his home. The young man is grown now, and doing well in life. In neither instance was it sexual.
So I will not jump to conclusions here.
How is this different to Sia adopting 18 year olds?
He’s helping a kid get a start in the US. Get your minds out of the gutter.
Matt Getz and Nestor his “son” and ex girlfriend s younger brother.
Matt Gaetz. Is he about to become yet another GOP Hastert, Foley or Graham?
Totally being used as a political tool
Ridiculous claims to be a 39 yr old father to a 19 yr old Cuban.

Matt Goetz and his 19 year old cuban lover, I mean “son.” I am sure it is a way to get him into the country through a loophole. It is very strange.
Rep. Matt Gaetz, (R-Florida). Very strange, indeed.
Matt Gaetz. R-FL
[Optional] I’ve got a dirty mind so not gonna comment…
well Matt Gaetz is 38 and said he has a 19yo son named Nestor. He is a Republican so I’m sure they will go after him next.
still your president…
Rep Gaetz and his so called Cuban “son”.
op- not sure, but it does appear weird and suspicious.
Good ole Matt Gaetz. Im a FL resident and I promise, we hate him too.
Matt Gaetz and Nestor Galban.
He just used Nestor to try to make Cedric Richmond look bad.
It didn’t work.
He has a Cuban son named Nestor.
ALWAYS GUESSING says
Matt Gaetz. He is the brother of his ex-girlfriend who he was living with at the time. Then the boys father died while they were all living together. After they broke up, the young man stayed so as not to have to move and change schools. He is now going off to college. Nothing dirty going on no matter how salacious you’d like to believe.
Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz lives with (now) 19 year old Cuban Immigrant, Nestor, who started living with him at age 12.
Matt Gaetz R-Florida
I’m sure he tells his family whatever they need to hear to be able to ignore the obvious
FL rep Matt Gaetz. Probably gay and picked up the young man when he was working as a Capitol page.
It’s Matt Gaetz and Nestor, whom he considers his son. At the age of 12, Nestor arrived from Cuba legally after his mother died from cancer. Matt was dating Nestor’s older sister at the time, and they all lived together. Nestor continued to live with Matt after Matt & his girlfriend broke up. Nestor is now 19. I don’t think anything inappropriate is going on, especially after Matt has gone public with this.

I have no idea what’s going on there but it is very strange indeed
Politican: Matt Gaetz
Not sure what’s going on. I hope the kid isn’t being taken advantage of.

Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz and “son” Nestor.
Though the situation would seem obvious, it may actually be innocent. He took in the boy at 12 – not sure even a Florida Republican could be that twisted 🙁
Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz suddenly has a son. He’s had the son since he was age 12. now age 19. It wouldn’t surprise me if there is something fishy going on.
It seems a bit odd. Why hadn’t he said anything about in the previous 6 years?
Optnl: Ummm, nothing that is fit to print.

Matt Gaetz is a creep.

Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz and his “son”/helper Nestor
Matt Gaetz and his “son”. Definitely something weird going on there…
He groomed this boy.
I how these suspicions were reported to whatever the relevant official child department, where they live.
Matt Gaetz, Florida. It seemed odd to me when I first read about it.
I’ve never heard of a politician hiding their kids to such an extent, although I can imagine the lack of a legal relationship would raise questions. That said, a politician of Gaetz’s stature would have the means to at least become the legal guardian. I’d guess things aren’t quite what they appear.
Matt Gaetz… Foul human being.
Politician: Matt Gaetz
I think what’s really going on is either he’s maneuvering to prove he’s not one of Those Repubs or he’s certainly called Daddy without it being fatherly
Drunk-Driving Supervillain (and elected politician, thanks Florida) Matt Gaetz
Ummmm…he needed a POC young person to parade around?
Matt Gaetz was in the news about having a “son” aged 19, who is the brother of his ex girlfriend and an immigrant from Cuba.
I don’t know who this is, hopefully the paperwork will show up.
But this wouldn’t be the first time a celebrity back channeled an illegal adoption. Happened with a very well known actress twice who went through a notorious Russian “baby broker'”- Galina something. In one of her adoptions an Asian country shut the doors to western adoptions for a while .
I hope this adoption is legit but money and power can weasel it’s way around the law leaving broken hearts in it’s wake.
I hope the kid wasn’t trafficked but it’s looking super hinky.

You know darn well that’s his boy toy.

Matt Gaetz and his “son”.
There are lots of fellow politicians speaking up for him taking in that teen in a spirit of kindness, so even though he’s done and said terrible things, it’d be nice if he had a nurturing side. But what a horrible example he’s setting for that kid.
Shouldn’t he have some sort of legal guardianship on paper though?

Who knows what the hell is going on. So now he’s a creeper in addition to being an *?

Matt Gaetz and Nestor. Is there a legal reason they should be investigated?
I dread to think what’s actually going on. I imagine it’s something awful.

Most likely his underage lover.
Matt Gaetz, Rep. from Florida.
He’s trying to make a point but I personally don’t trust anything he says because it’s usually hyperbole.
Matt Gaetz and his “son” Nestor.
I really do hope they investigate this “father/son” relationship, because as I recently saw someone say online, “just because someone calls you daddy doesn’t make you their father!”
Totally something off about this story!

Acknowledge that he is raising a child of color.
This is the Matt Gaetz thing, apparently he once told another politician he “enjoys being the Batman to his Robin”.
Well, definitely Matt Gaetz. Also, the blind doesn’t mention, but he claims he’s been “raising” the teen for 6 years 🤨
