KUALA LUMPUR - Bosnian Ervin Ahbabovic will withdraw his "sperm abuse" suit against his ex-girlfriend if he is allowed to see their son.
The 41-year-old business development consultant claimed he was forced to take legal action after the 29-year-old woman, who he considered his life partner, treated him like a "gigolo".
"I was so hurt and angry when she told me, 'I just needed you to be my gigolo so that I can have a beautiful child. You are no longer needed," he said, adding Melanie (not her real name) said it some two months after he was chased out of the house.
"When I finally met her in February and tried convince her to reconciliation, she made this statement that I could not take and has been haunting me even until today," he told a press conference here on Thursday.
However, the Malaysian Permanent Resident holder said he was willing to withdraw the case if she agreed to sit with him and talk it out.
"I wish to reconcile with her. If not, she should at least allow me to see our boy. I have not seen him for six months," he said, as he broke down in tears.
He added that the boy is currently living with his ex-girlfriend's parents.
Ahbabovic said he would hang out near the house and shops Melanie's parents frequented in the hope of seeing his son.
"But I could not. They never take him out and do not go to the shops as often now. Life is meaningless without them (his ex girlfriend and baby)," he said.
He said Melanie wanted his genes because children of mixed marriages were more intelligent and beautiful.
Ahbabovic said he and Melanie were very much in love at the beginning but the relationship was hampered by their cultural differences and his financial status.
"She is intelligent, capable, highly-educated, pretty and a good writer," he said, when asked why he fell for her.
