Of all the “Steve Jobs was a jerk” stories out there, few are as telling as how he allegedly treated his love child, Lisa, and her mom.

According to the New York Post, his girlfriend Chrisann Brennan became pregnant before they broke up in 1977 and, in 1979, Jobs took a paternity test that proved he was the father.

He continued to maintain that he was not her dad, even though he gave her mother, who was a waitress and on welfare, $500 per month in child support.

Now Brennan has written a memoir of her time with him: “[He] changed from adolescent dopey to just plain vicious,” she writes of his rise to success. “... It was at this time that I began to perceive that awesome and awful could be but a hair’s breadth apart.”
