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.
