The Moneyist: I earned $5 million in my lifetime—now my long-lost son keeps hitting me up for money

Dear Moneyist,

Everyone is pressuring me for money. My success has caused strife, greed from others and sadness for me at every turn. I have been fortunate to become a successful small business owner. My assets exceed over $5 million. One would never know it due to my non-flashy lifestyle (used cars, modest home, etc.).

I fathered a child after one date in my teens. The mother was from out of state. I tried to be responsible and provide what I could at that time. Two years after he was born, I was asked to not contact the mother anymore. She was getting married to someone that would accept my son as his own.
