A potential successor to the Dalai Lama can be sued for child support by a former nun who has been ruled by a Canadian court.

Vikki Hui Xin Han, who now lives in British Columbia, has claimed she became pregnant after Ogyen Trinley Dorje sexually assaulted her in a convent in New York in 2017.

It later evolved into an online “marital relationship” in which he sent her over $ 700,000 following a provincial Supreme Court ruling.

Han is allowed to add support from the spouses to her maintenance suit against Dorje, known to his millions of followers as His Holiness.

Dorje was identified as a child in 1992 as the 17th incarnation of the Karmapa Lama, the head of one of the four main schools of Tibetan Buddhism.

Dorje, however, denies any relationship with Han, but admits that she sent her money “for the benefit of the child whom the applicant said was his daughter,” according to the verdict.

As reported by The Times, none of the allegations have been proven in court.

According to the verdict, Dorje fled China-controlled Tibet to the Dalai Lama’s grounds in India at the age of 14. He still lives in India.

He is one of the two applicants for his title.
