Lauren Lake, the TV Judge Who Sang Back-Up for P. Diddy & Mary J. Blige, Presides over Lauren Lake’s Paternity Court

Ric Speaks with Judge Lauren Lake About Her Unusual Path to the
Courtroom and the Emotional Cases She Oversees in 

Lauren Lake’s Paternity Court, Now in its Sixth Season 

It’s safe to say Lauren Lake isn’t quite like other TV courtroom judges. Yes, she earned her law degree at Wayne State University in Detroit and she’s a member of the New York, New Jersey and Michigan bars with concentrations in family, criminal and entertainment law. But this judge is a former professional singer, songwriter and producer who sang back-up for multi-platinum artists such as Jay-Z, Mary J. Blige, P. Diddy, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg. She’s also an interior design expert who hosted HGTV’s Spice Up My Kitchen for six seasons and was the HGTV Showdown Champion for two consecutive years.

Now, Lauren can be seen each day on the nationally syndicated daytime TV series Lauren Lake’s Paternity Court, which recently began its sixth season. In the two-time Emmy-nominated® series, Judge Lauren uses her sharp wit and strong opinions – as well as DNA test results — to preside over highly emotional paternity cases that often lead to life-changing consequences and new beginnings.

Lauren Lake is a highly sought-after speaker and lecturer, a best-selling author (2009’s Girl, Let Me Tell You), and a strong advocate for women’s empowerment, having founded the Women in Entertainment Empowerment Network. Speak with Lauren about her unusual path to the courtroom, her thoughts on gender equality issues and the #MeToo movement, and what viewers can expect in the new season of Lauren Lake’s Paternity Court.
