After the conversation starts on Reddit, fans begin to shed light on Deon Derrico’s oldest son, Derron while also clarifying the oldest daughter, Darian Derrico.

  • Darrion is their oldest daughter. The one that was rejected by NYU. Derron is Deon’s adopted son who he adopted before he met Karen. They are estranged because Deon fraudulently took out loans and credit cards in Derron’s name that were never paid back.”
  • “I am beginning to wonder if it was another ‘Eric’ type situation.. meaning Deon met this somewhat vulnerable young man who had no family and took him in like he did Eric and did that pseudo adoption thing and then stole his identity.”
  • “That’s pretty much what happened. His name was Jasper. They met while Deon was a bus driver and became close. Deon adopted him, and Jasper changed his name to a D name, Derron. It’s very weird. Not sure what his obsession is with having kids and adopting adults but he creeps me out.”

Derron Derrico Still Holds A Grudge With Deon Derrico

Someone else references that Deon Derrico adopted Jasper aka, Derron, before meeting Karen. However, recently circuits brought up another son, Juan, that no one knows about. In 2014, Deon was charged with fraud relating to real estate but was cleared. But during the investigation, Derron, 22, at the time, was included in the review and certainly held a grudge that his adoptive father had taken out student loans he didn’t need. Furthermore, Derron alleges fraud was at play. Another person gives Doubling Down With The Derricos fans an idea of Derron’s suspected age.

  • “The eldest kid is like 32 going on 33 so highly unlike that is Karen’s child (she would’ve been 11 when he was born).”
  • Another person agrees, “That’s what I thought too. But: it’s not my mess of a family; so I am not positive. I sat 14 to 17 kids. Because to me it’s clear they have 14. I am not sure if Eric or the oldest adopted count as their kid. I could make a case. yes. I could make a case no.. And then Carter; that’s highly sensitive, it would be so disrespectful of me to even go there. But Back to Darrian-I am 95% sure she’s the oldest bio kid of those two lovable lunnies.”

Yes I will definitely continue to watch if the show continues, it will be interesting to see how they navigate the divorce and all those kid’s they both say were born without help yeah right if anyone believes that they are brain dead maybe a couple sets of twins or maybe even some triplets but no way all those multiples were conceived naturally blow that smoke up someone else’s butt
