Biography

American news figure who was the focus of a heart breaking debate between two sets of parents when it was learned that Hardee Memorial Hospital had wrongly switched Kimberly Twigg with Arlena Mays at birth. She was raised by the Mays family. When Arlena died of heart disease at age nine, the hospital error was discovered. Regina Twiggs, 54, and Ernest Twiggs, 53, waged a five-year legal battle to get Kimberly back, but a judge awarded her to Mays and his second wife, Darlena, whom he wed after Barbara died of cancer.

Kimberly hit the news again when she ran away to live with the Twigg family. Finding a stressful relationship with the Twiggs, she went to court on 8/02/1993 to legally sever relations with her biological parents.

At the age of 21, she received a $5 million award stemming from the legal settlement with the hospital.

Just before Valentine's day, (2/08/1997), she married aspiring actor Jeremy Weeks, 19, after a whirlwind six-month romance and Kimberly three months pregnant. Her dad, Robert May, gave her away. The Twiggs were not invited or told of her plans. The couple had a son, Devon, born in 1997. April 1999 found her the highlight of news again as an impending investigation was prompted by Florida Dept. of Children removed their son Devon from their home to foster care. She had been charged with neglect and physical abuse. The complaint was filed by her biological sister, Irisa Twigg Roylance. Irisa claims to have seen Kimberly strike Devon, leave him in his crib for hours alone covered with feces. Kimberly's troubles increased in June 1999 when her husband was granted a temporary injunction against her for "protection against domestic violence." Weeks claims that he has been yelled at, slapped, hit and menaced with a knife. She is currently receiving counseling thru the Fl. Dept. of Children, she and her attorney hope to rejoin them into a family.
