In another post, @NamanyaRender wrote the child is four years old now and Jane won a child support case against the tech millionaire.

She allegedly said that the millionaire left his bank statement on the nightstand in his hotel room and she saw it while cleaning.

"I wanted a baby so bad and I thought it would be better if I had a baby with a rich man" - she allegedly said.

The tweep added in his thread that Jane has allegedly started several businesses with her newfound fortune and retains custody of the child - whom she allegedly named after the millionaire.

The story sparked quite the reactions - some were horrified over the possibility of having their sperm stolen while others simply dubbed it fake news.

Briefly.co.za took a look at the facts and determined whether the story was true or false.

Truthorfiction.com confirmed that the story was indeed fake news.

The website stated:

"One was that it was shared as a screenshot of a purported article, without a link to any news stories. Another was that a cursory Google search led to stories primarily published outside the United States, when the hotel cleaner child support hustle supposedly occurred in Las Vegas."
