MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A man who fathered 23 children with 17 different women in Shelby County now has three more children across the river in Forrest City, Arkansas.

Three women in Forrest City went to court asking for child support from 50-year-old Terry Turnage. He didn't show up.

"That's too many baby mommas," said Forrest City resident Darlene Jackson, who calls men like Turnage "sperm donors."

Jackson says the father of her surviving triplets never paid his due.

"He was a ho," she added.

People in Forrest City know Turnage as an apparent serial womanizer. In his Facebook photos, he wears flashy, large jewelry, holds pricey liquor, and stands in front of expensive cars.

Turnage has a Memphis address, but no one answered the door when WMC Action News 5's Janice Broach knocked.

Tanya Lockhart, who lives in Forrest City, has some advice for women.

"Be careful who you deal with. Make sure when you get involved with a man, they will take care of their responsibilities."
