Paul George’s summer just continues to get worse, and having a Manhattan judge slam him won’t make it any better.
According to the New York Post, Justice Matthew Cooper did everything but call the Pacers star a deadbeat dad during his latest ruling on the paternity case involving Daniela Rajic.
“Even though it is all but certain that [George] is the father of the 5-month-old baby girl at the center of this case,” Justice Matthew Cooper writes, “he has gone to every length imaginable to avoid taking responsibility for his actions.”
George has jumped through legal hoops to delay the case brought in May by his ex-stripper baby mama, Queens native Daniela Rajic.
He first asked to move the case to federal court, and when that bid failed, began a competing proceeding in Florida.
Although, as Cooper notes in the ruling, the couple first had sex at the swank Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami, the baby was conceived in California and born in New York, so the fatherhood question belongs in the Empire State.
Rajic’s lawyer, Raoul Felder, said, “On behalf of our client, we are of course gratified.”
George chose to have unprotected sex with Ms. Rajic, and now he will have to deal with those consequences and her want for a lavish lifestyle, for the next 18 years.
