“Scandalous love triangles and scandalous results today on Maury,” host Maury Povich said ahead of the segment.
Lil Nas X tells Ashley he didn’t think Ariza was the real father of her child. A paternity test and a lie-detector test follow. Ashley darts from the studio after the paternity test revealed Ariza is not the father of her son.

The parody aired on the Maury show’s official YouTube channel, with some viewers not realising it was a joke.
The show confirmed it was in fact a parody, with a card reading, “The ‘Montero’ segment is a collaboration between Lil Nas X and The Maury Show for entertainment purposes. The storyline is loosely based on the music video, ‘That’s What I Want’ by Lil Nas X.”
