Has Mark Hamill of Star Wars fame joined the dark side? One woman claims he has.
Maegan Chen, former girlfriend of Mark Hamill’s son Nathan (age 37), says the Hamill family pressured her to get an abortion after she revealed she was pregnant with Nathan’s baby, with Hamill claiming his son “is not ready to be a father.” Chen is suing to establish paternity and to collect child support for the baby, a girl who is due to be born on Halloween, according to the New York Post.
Chen reportedly met Nathan through Tinder. Three months after their first date, she discovered she was pregnant. According to Chen, Nathan immediately began insisting she abort the baby. At one point, Chen says she complied, reportedly taking two abortion pills. When the pills did not work, Chen alleges Nathan increasingly demanded an abortion. In a series of texts, Nathan allegedly told Chen, “If you keep it, we won’t hang out anymore,” and “No money from a trust fund and no money from my parents. And you could be paying me child support if I have custody.”
But according to Chen, it wasn’t just Nathan who insisted she abort the baby – Mark and his wife Marilou also pressured her, she says. “Mark Hamill told me that I shouldn’t bring a child into the world that nobody wants,” Chen told The Post. Chen also claims that when she visited the Hamills in London, Marilou set up an appointment for Chen, for an abortion consultation. “I thought I was going to get an ultrasound of the baby, not a referral for an abortion,” explains Chen. “Nobody ever asked me what I wanted. I felt really pressured from them to get rid of the baby.”
Chen refused to abort, returned to the US, and ended her relationship with Nathan. In an email from an account which The Post claims is linked to Mark Hamill, Marilou allegedly told Chen, “Meagan, you blew it. I don’t want you to think this is a money making endeavour because you will be extremely disappointed.”
According to The Post, the Hamill family has declined to comment at this time.
