Richard Mason discovered he had been infertile since birth- despite believing he had three sons

A millionaire who recently found out he's not father of his 3 children after 21 years of marriage, has offered reward to unmask the real father of his three boys.

The eldest is 23 and a budding businessman, while the 19-year-old twins are at university.

Richard Mason, co-founder of comparison site moneysupermarket.com, is reportedly planning on writing a book about the experience after raising the boys as his own for about two decades and finding out he had been deceived. Yesterday Mr Mason said the shock of discovering the truth left him contemplating suicide.

Mason learned Kate Mason had lied about the paternity when doctors diagnosed him with cystic fibrosis and told him he had been infertile since birth in 2016. She also refused to have them christened.

It is not known if Mrs Mason's former lover is aware he has three sons from the on-off relationship.

Mrs Mason was not required to name her children's biological dad during the court case and she did not reveal if he knew he was their father.

The Tribe acquired Kevin Plawecki from the Mets and sent pitcher Walker Lockett and infielder Sam Haggerty to NY . Plawecki played for Purdue and was the Big Ten Player of the Year in 2012.

After he quizzed Kate, she sent him a message insisting: 'Of course the boys are yours, no matter what the science might suggest'.

Further DNA tests confirmed his worst fears and Mr Mason began legal action against his wife to claw back money from their divorce settlement, as well as suing her for paternity fraud.

Now, in what is thought to be the first case of its kind, 54-year-old Kate has agreed to repay him £250,000 (R4,5 million) in an out-of-court settlement.

Mr Mason, from Rhos, North Wales, no longer sees two of his sons who have stopped contact.

He told The Mail on Sunday: 'You don't know what's real and what isn't - it's as if I'm living in The Matrix.

Mr Mason, pictured with new wife Emma, said that his life was in pieces when he discovered his sons weren't biologically his.
