Inside Barry Williams Relationship with Elizabeth Kennedy, His Then-Girlfriend of Seven Years
Barry Williams, who is best known for his role as Greg Brady on the television series "The Brady Bunch," is embroiled in a scandal involving his then-girlfriend of seven years and their child.
In a 2015 interview with Extra, Elizabeth Kennedy opened up about her poor relationship with Williams. The former couple shares one child — daughter Samantha.
"I don't think that there's any project in the world that would be worth missing out on the first three years of Sammi's life."

Kennedy and Williams met in 2006. "It was a fairy tale romance initially," she recalled. However, Williams suddenly changed.
"When we split in March of 2013, a different side of him emerged," Kennedy said.
When she got pregnant with Samantha, Williams was taken aback, she revealed.
"I was just so overjoyed when I found out I was pregnant I didn't care if he was in the picture now," said Kennedy.

According to reports, Williams made statements at the time saying he believed Kennedy got pregnant intentionally.
Speaking about the claims, Kennedy explained:
"That's an interesting theory, but no, I mean I don't think that any woman actually thinks that that plan works and that's not what happened."
Since Samantha was born pre-maturely, Kennedy was faced with a huge debt for medical bills. Because of that debt, she and her little girl ended up destitute. At that point, Kennedy decided to turn to the courts.

Williams spent most of his time in Missouri, where he is working on his reality show "A Very Barry Branson." But Kennedy did not believe it was a good excuse for him not to see their daughter.
"I don't care what show he's doing out there," she said. "I don't think that there's any project in the world that would be worth missing out on the first three years of Sammi's life."
Kennedy added, "He's not making good choices when it comes to Samantha and I really feel like at some point he's gonna have to answer to her for that."
Meanwhile, in an interview with The Huffington Post, Williams denied Kennedy's claims.
"It's a funny thing how you get built up and people want to take you down and that kind of thing," he said. "It's not about custody. It's about child support."
A source close to Williams revealed to Inside Edition that his ex's claims are rubbish, adding that it was Kennedy who won't let the actor see Samantha.
