Michael Jordan is having a rough time as a humble retired basketball legend in love.
He's still planning to get married, though, even in the midst of all this alleged baby mama drama he's got going on tied up in the court system!! We're hearing now that he's not going to sit down and take it, and has filed for the paternity lawsuit to be defenestrated!
"shameless, bad faith attempt to abuse the legal system."
The glaring hole in Pamela Y. Smith's case is that the paternity of the teen was "conclusively established" in divorce filings between Smith and her ex-husband.
Here's what Jordan's statement said:
"Public records show that the paternity of the child was established in a prior case in this same court many years ago and that Michael Jordan is not the father. He also filed a counterclaim seeking sanctions for the false claims made against him. It is unfortunate that well-known figures are the target of these kind of claims. Michael Jordan will vigorously defend himself and his reputation."
With all the fake lawsuits flying around against celebs, none of this comes as a shock to us. The only thing is that in Georgia, it doesn't take much to get a judge to make you take a paternity test, because it's not invasive — just a saliva swab. It's simple and it conclusively clears things up super fast without having to take sides!
Beyond the test, the lady's lawsuit wants him to pay child support, share medical, dental and hospital costs not covered by insurance, to issue a new birth certificate, and to change the 16 year old boy's last name to Jordan.
We'll just have to see if the judge agrees to throw it all out… or make him take the test!
