    The pair had sex after he gave her a ride home from a bar where he says she told people she was a college student.

    Crysta became pregnant as a result of their encounter; their daughter is now 16.

    Barnes says he won full custody of the girl because her mother had been allowing her to post sexually explicit videos on TikTok.

    He also alleges the mother allowed a ‘revolving door of men’ to sleep over in their home which confused the girl.
