I can understand why Michael Jordan would want the case dismissed. Even if he is the father of the Oral Sex Teacher’s son, it has been 16 years.
If she wanted to legitimatized the paternity or ask for money, why did she wait so long? According to reports, it was her son, up and coming rapper Taj that pushed for her to take it to court, while others believe it is more about money to help her get out of some financial troubles.
Whatever the case, Jordan and his legal team wants it to stop.
Jordan’s lawyer John Mayoue said in the document filed Monday in Fulton County Superior Court that the six-time NBA champion is not the father of Pamela Y. Smith’s son. Jordan accused her of making false claims against him.
Jordan, 50, released a statement to The Associated Press on Monday through his publicist Estee Portnoy saying, “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.”
Jordan’s response to Smith’s Feb. 6 lawsuit said her suit is a “shameless, bad faith attempt to abuse the legal system.”
The simplest way to get this all over with, is just take the paternity test or if there is already a paternity test on file, to bring it to the surface. The other way to go on Maury, which is what I would vote for.
Until then it is a he said/she said type of case, where no one knows, who is telling the truth.
