UPDATE: Gael Garcia Bernal Splits from Girlfriend, Demands DNA Test for Son

Grosby Group

It looks like our boy Gael Garcia Bernal may be embroiled in some seriously scandalous baby mama drama. Tv y Novelas is reporting that Bernal, 31, is not only splitting from his on-again, off-again girlfriend Dolores Fonzi, 31, but also demanding a DNA test to find out whether or not the couple's baby, Lazaro (born Jan. 8, 2009), is actually his.

Nope, it's not the latest episode of Jerry Springer, it's Garcia Bernal's life. Sources close to the actor say that he is very sad that his relationship with Fonzi didn't work out, and that the Argentinean actress has returned to her homeland with no intention of reuniting with Bernal back in Europe.

As soon as the couple decided to seperate, rumors that both Bernal and Fonzi would file legal custody papers started to float around—but now sources close to the situation say that Bernal has asked Fonzi for a DNA test to prove that Lazaro is actually his child. Apparently, around the time that he hooked up with Fonzi she was also dating Luis Ortega, son of the singer Palito Ortega, but Bernal believed her when she insisted that the child she was carrying was his.

However, this story should be taken with a grain of salt, as other sources close to the actor have claimed the reports are false. "It's completely untrue," the source told people.com, adding that the actor and his girlfriend, "are happy together and they love their son. This is totally made up." A rep for Bernal confirmed that the break up and paternity rumors are false, while a rep for Fonzi refused to comment.

Who do you believe?
