DeVawn Moreno had affair with Israel Houghton when the latter was married to Meleasa Houghton. Their son’s names are Kingston Houghton and Khristian Houghton.
In 2016, the Texas State Attorney Child Support Division stated that Kingston was four years old and Khristian was two.
The Texas State Attorney General’s Child Support Division sued the singer for alleged child support issues. The state wanted Houghton come up with his tax returns, checking and savings accounts statements, 401K info, proof of health insurance coverage and income history so that the court could estimate how much he possibly owed.

As per the entertainment website, representatives for the state’s highest law enforcement office appeared in Harris County Family Court in Texas for a child support hearing, known as “Title IV-D”. Houghton was, however, not present.
