  • Former wrestler Stan Lane has proven through DNA testing that he was not Lauren Boebert’s father.
  • Lane said her reputation was “significantly tarnished” when Boebert’s mother made the claim in the 1980s.

A former wrestler believed to be the father of Rep Lauren Boebert has said being linked to her has “significantly” tarnished his “good reputation”.

Boebert’s mother, Shawn Roberts Bentz, claimed for years that retired professional wrestler Stan Lane, with whom she had a fling in the 1980s, was the MP’s father.

However, Lane took two DNA tests which proved he was not related to her and told The Daily Beast that “this situation and the many false allegations made against me over the years have been stressful for me and my family. family”.

“I feel like my good name has been significantly tarnished. Me and other close members of my inner circle have also been dragged into this,” he told The Daily Beast in a statement.

He added to The Daily Beast that he hopes the media will stop following him.

“I’ve also been followed by the news media so they can get the inside scoop on this,” he told The Daily Beast. “I ask that I be taken out of this equation since a conclusive result has been given to both parties.”

Lane, 69, took his first paternity test in 1990 after Bentz claimed he was Boebert’s father and tried to get him child support.

Although the results proved he was not genetically related to Boebert, news later emerged that a lab worker performing the paternity test had interfered with an NFL player’s sample. unrelated who had also taken a paternity test, the Daily Beast reported.

This cast doubt on the validity of Lane’s test results.

So last month, Lane agreed to another paternity test and gave Boebert the physical copy of the DNA sample to clear any doubts, the Daily Beast reported.

In a statement sent to The Daily Beast, Lane said: “The results came back on May 11, 2023. They concluded that I had a 0.0% chance of being the biological father.”

Boebert told The Daily Beast that the results were accurate and good enough to fix the problem.

“It was a bit like you, that’s it, OK!” she said to the exit. “He was wrongfully attacked, and he doesn’t deserve this.”

Lane said he accepted Boebert’s apology on his and his mother’s behalf for the decades of accusations and told The Daily Beast: “If she continues to search for her biological father, I hope she will find the answers she was looking for.”

Representatives for Boebert and an associate of Lane did not immediately respond to Insider’s requests for comment sent outside of normal business hours.
