Nerlens Noel Pays $10k in Child Support, But Not Sure If He’s The Father


Nerlens Noel says his knee is 100 percent

Nerlens Noel hasn’t played in a minute in the NBA, but he is already dealing with NBA off the court style issues. Noel didn’t wrap up and had a baby by a woman who he had no intention of being with. Then because he either didn’t have the proper legal advice or just was trying to do the right thing, he signed paperwork acknowledging that he was the father of the child.

He was paying the woman $10k a month in child support, but suddenly stopped because he says he isn’t sure he is the father (good reason if true). TMZ Sports fills in the rest of the blanks.

It’s a nasty fight between Nerlens and a woman named Jamie — who claims the 20-year-old signed an affidavit in May 2013 (one week after the child was born) admitting he is the father. She claims the two remained close after the pregnancy.

In legal docs, obtained by TMZ Sports, Jamie claims Nerlens agreed to pay $10k per month in child support — and did for 3 months — but suddenly cut her off and hasn’t paid a dime since.

Jamie filed a lawsuit against Nerlens hoping the judge would force him to pay up — but he fired back with legal docs of his own claiming he’s not convinced he’s the real father.

In fact, in Noel’s legal docs he writes, “[He] does not have sufficient knowledge of information to know whether [Jamie] engaged in sexual relations with other men during the times pertinent to this case.”

Noel wants a DNA test now to settle the matter before giving her any more money. I am not a paternity expert, but I have watched a lot of Maury and I don’t know, from the picture below I am leaning toward saying Noel being the Pappy.

What do you think?

  1. The DNA test will p[rove its him. He’s the daddy and not only show he pay up, but he should marry her. That would be the right thing to do. Eventhough they have to set aside their differences, its whats best for the child. The last thing we need in our community is another fatherless child.

  2. They once told me: “only someone who went through this situation (unwanted pregnancy) knows how it is.”

    Now I know it is true…marrying the mother, if they don’t share affinities or desire to be together, is a huge mistake.

    I aggree that this is far from an ideal situation, but Nerlens can do the best possible to be present and support the child the best he can.

    Wishing him good luck and also wishing that he does what’s right and best for the child.
