If you are still concerned — which you probably aren’t — whether or not you knocked up a girl at the Megadeth and Motorhead concert at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago, the search for the baby daddy is off.
It turns out the Craigslist Missed Connections post was fake and the woman responsible for the joke came forward. (RELATED: Baby mama seeks father on Craigslist after Motorhead concert hookup)
The women, who wished to be referred to as “Crash” to protect her job, admitted that she was 23 years old — not 28 as the post states — and is a resident of Kansas, not Chicago, according to FuseTV.
“I’m going to make this easy for you: It was a joke. I’m really, really sorry. I didn’t mean to trick you,” Crash told the site.
What started as a result of insomnia from new medication, Crash says she filled her time by reading through the Missed Connections section of Craigslist. After finding the posts “funny,” she decided to create a missed connection of her own.
Since she has never been to a Megadeth or Motorhead concert before, the Kansas chef admitted that she “was just trying to find something that looked like it had happened long enough ago that someone could by now know that they were pregnant from it.”
She received more than 200 emails in response to the post, including emails from concerned men thinking they fathered a child.
“I’m pretty sure there were people banging at that concert, by the way, based on email responses from a few terrified concertgoers who thought that they had impregnated me. I may not be pregnant, but someone is,” Crash said.
While this could have been the greatest episode of Jerry Springer ever, unfortunately, no head-banging, metal-loving baby is on the way — at least not that we know of.
