John McAfee children: How many kids did he really have?
TECH mogul John McAfee has been found dead in a Spanish jail cell hours after a judge ordered he be extradited to the United States for tax evasion.
The 75-year-old cyber-security pioneer and founder of McAfee Associations allegedly took his own life in prison in Barcelona on June 23, 2021, his lawyer has said.
How many children did John McAfee claim to have?
John McAfee has claimed to have fathered around 47 children.
In July 2021, this number increased to 49, accounting for two children McAfee had before going to jail and did not know about.
In a 2019 interview with the Sun, McAfee said his kids were aged between 16 and 47.
McAfee admitted: "It's very difficult to keep track of [them]. Almost all of them were illegitimate.
"[But] I keep in touch with every one… I take care of all of them financially."
McAfee also has at least three stepchildren – his widow, Janice Dyson, has three teenage children herself.
The couple first met back in 2012 after McAfee had been deported from Guatemala. He picked Janice up at a Miami Beach cafe and hired her as an escort for the night.
At the time, McAfee was on the run from murder accusations in Belize where they believed he had murdered his 54-year-old neighbor Gregory Faull.
The two got married in 2013 and resided in Lexington, Tennessee.
Janice was an escort when they met and the couple told 20/20 back in 2017 that McAfee had saved her from a violent pimp after years of sex trafficking.
Of his stepchildren, McAfee had said they were being well cared for.
“They're being watched by my people,” he said.
What has he said about his children?
In a 2020 Twitter thread, McAfee elaborated on his situation as a family man, stating he had 61 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren along with his “47” children.
“These numbers might have been much smaller… Had DNA testing been around while I was growing up,” one tweet read.
Despite having given a specific number when speaking about his children, McAfee admitted when replying to a Twitter user that the figure was the “best guess given the information that I have”.
In the same Twitter thread, further information was revealed about his offspring.
Responding to someone asking how many children in Australia he had, McAfee said “2”.
The babies had been born to 41 different “baby mamas””, he said, and he had been married five times.
