Musician Claiming To Have Fathered Over 550 Kids Through Sperm Donation Has Been Slapped With A Law Suit

A Dutch musician, Jonathan Jacob Meijer, 41, has misled hundreds of women all over the world and may have fathered nearly 550 children, according to the Donorkind Foundation, which is suing him.
Mr. Meijer, from The Hague, Netherlands, was blacklisted in 2017 after the Dutch Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology warned he had fathered 102 children via ten different clinics in the Netherlands.
But he continued to donate abroad, in Denmark and Ukraine, and offered his services through websites and social media, according to the Dutch news website AD.
Eva, the Dutch woman at the center of the court case, had a child with Mr. Meijer in 2018 and said it made her feel ‘sick to her stomach’ that he had fathered so many children.
She said, ‘If I had known he had already fathered more than 100 children, I would never have chosen him.
‘If I think about the consequences this could have for my child, I am sick to my stomach.
‘Many mothers have told him he needs to stop, but nothing helps.” So going to court is the only option I have to protect my child.’
Eva and the Donorkind Foundation want to stop Mr. Meijer from donating and find out exactly which clinics he has donated sperm to.
They have accused Mr. Meijer of ‘lying’ to hundreds of women about the number of children he has fathered.
Eva also wants all his sperm still in storage to be destroyed, unless it has been reserved for a woman who already has one of his children.
Tie van der Meer, the foundation’s chairman, said: ‘We are taking action against this man because the national government is doing nothing.
‘He has a global reach via the internet, and he does business with large, international sperm banks.’
Donorkind’s lawyer, Mark de Hek, said: ‘This behavior is dangerous for the mental well-being and health of donor children. By preferring his reproductive urges, the donor is acting unlawfully.
‘In addition, he violates the agreements with the clinics and with the prospective parents because they trusted his promise that he would father a maximum of 25 children.’ Ian is facing court in a bid to get him to stop his ‘obsessive’ sperm donation amid claims he has fathered hundreds of children around the world.
