Malone refused to accept that he was the father of all three of these kids, settling paternity suits where he was exempt from acknowledging he was the father.
He never made any attempts to enter his kids’ lives either, at least until much later. He started to build relationships with Cheryl and Daryl when they were both 17, but he made no effort whatsoever to contact Demetrius. However, that hasn’t affected Bell at all.
