Amityville Horror director sues ex-wife after she duped him into believing daughter was his for 17 years

A filmaker is suing his ex-wife for allegedly duping him into believing for 17 years that a child was his daughter.

Andrew Douglas, who directed the 2005 remake of The Amityville Horror, is demanding back hundreds of thousands of pounds in child support.

He says Ameena Meer asked him to marry her after claiming she was having his baby. But the real father, according to the lawsuit, was another Briton she had been cheating on him with.


Law suit: Andrew Douglas is suing his ex-wife Ameena Meer for allegedly duping him into believing for 17 years that a child was his daughter

Mr Douglas, who began his career in Lord Snowdon’s photographic studio, says in the lawsuit that he met Miss Meer in London in 1989.

She had commissioned him to take photographs of Salman Rushdie for a magazine interview she had organised with the writer.

Over the next three years the couple ‘had infrequent sexual relations’ when they met up in London, according to papers filed at Manhattan Supreme Court.

Once pregnant, Miss Meer said she didn’t want a baby born out of wedlock because ‘it would cause great shame and disgrace to her parents, who were practising Muslims’.

The writer moved to London and married Mr Douglas in August 1992. But the couple split months after Sasha Douglas was born and Miss Meer took their daughter back to her New York home.

In the court documents, Mr Douglas says he had little contact with Sasha until her tenth birthday and felt depressed about failing as a father.

Miss Meer, who has had two more daughters with her second husband, allegedly told the director that ‘a price tag was attached’ if he wanted to play any part in the girl’s life.


Dispute: Novelist Ameena Meer said she had never knowingly lied to her former husband

He said he paid nearly £450,000 in child support and tuition fees, gave Miss Meer £17,000 when she fell behind with her rent and handed out a further £6,500 for a new bathroom.

Mr Douglas’s relationship with Sasha is said to have improved after he moved to California but he said he became suspicious last summer when she asked him about his blood type.

Tests showed it was incompatible with the 17-year-old’s. Miss Meer allegedly brushed off his concerns, telling him in a telephone call last September:

‘If you’re not Sasha’s father, it must be immaculate conception.’ A DNA test taken later that month revealed that it was virtually impossible for Mr Douglas to have been the father.

‘The probability of paternity is zero per cent,’ the genetic report concluded, said the suit.

The court file says the biological parent is ‘a British man who, unbeknownst to plaintiff at the time, was involved in a sexual relationship’ with Miss Meer.

The real father refused to marry her and so ‘knowingly and with malice’ she told Mr Douglas the baby was his.

The legal papers say Mr Douglas still loves the girl he believed to be his daughter, but wants his former wife to pay back the child support and pay compensation for emotional damages.

A friend of the filmmaker told the New York Post that Mr Douglas was ‘a stand-up guy’ who ‘took Ameena at her word 17 years ago’.

He said Miss Meer has now banned Mr Douglas from seeing Sasha. Miss Meer told the newspaper that she had never knowingly lied to her ex-husband.

‘Of course I didn’t lie. I obviously didn’t think that he wasn’t her father,’ she said. ‘If he wants to be her father, he should provide for her. Isn’t that what’s fair?’

She said the lawsuit was ‘a terrible thing for him to do to his daughter’.

After working for Lord Snowdon, Mr Douglas became a magazine photographer for Esquire and The Face and then a director of music videos and commercials before going into movie-making.

His 2003 documentary, Searching for the Wrong-Eyed Jesus, won a Royal Television Society award.

Always get a paternity test. Always.

Never assume the child is yours. Never.

I don't know what British law is on this. In Kalifornia, if a man is married to a woman on the day she gives birth, he is legally the father, period. She may have lied to get him to marry her, but his paternal obligations to the baby may be established permanently. He doesn't appear to have a case against the biological father, either. She wasn't married to him while she was out screwing the other guy, so he can't claim alienation of affection.

Bitch screwed him, and not in a good way, either.

I read somewhere that for around 10-15% of people their father is someone different than who they think it is.

Both sexes cheat, but tricking a guy into raising another man's child....that's beyond fucked up.

That is something that needs to be fixed here....if you ain't the biological daddy then you should not have to support the kid.

I read a journal article from a hospital in the midwest that did a paternity test on every baby born there for a year, only disclosing the results if the mother consented. It was MUCH higher than 10% weren't the claimed father. I think it was 30%.

A British study showed 25% of children born into a marriage did not belong to the husband.

That takes one cold bitch to trick her husband or bf into raising another man's child for 18+ years and never telling him.

Probably the same type of bitch that would shoot her husband in his sleep if she ever thought he was cheating on her.

+1 and he's an idiot for not having a DNA test too, if that was available 17 years ago?

Hard to tell if that data set is a regional anomaly. I'm sure in the hood where they breed like feral dogs on the street and go on Maury Povich accusing an entire herd of men for paternity the incidence is high. If they're suburban nuclear families that were married before impregnation, I'd expect the incidence to be much lower.

Thank you Steve.

Florida is similar, but will let you off the hook with proof that the kid really isn't yours. My ex and I split up, she met some guy a couple years later and had a kid. When the divorce was filed I had to provide the brith certificate naming the actual father along with affadavits stating that I wasn't. Otherwise, children "of the marriage" become the husband's responsibility.
