Records in Eddy Arnold Paternity Suit Ordered Sealed

The case of a California man who claims to be the son of the late Country Music Hall of Fame member Eddy Arnold took another turn Monday (Jan. 5) when a judge sealed records in the case. The paternity suit brought by Christopher Tanner was ordered sealed by Davidson County judge Randy Kennedy in Nashville. All future filings in the case will therefore remain unavailable for public viewing, as will the entire file. Tanner’s mother, Arlene Tanner-Glynn, had claimed a romantic relationship with the singer. Arnold’s relatives have said he denied fathering the 48-year-old Tanner.
