Anytime someone tells you it isn’t about money, it is always about money.
I imagine that Davis and her mom have already blown through the $3 million and with only two more lump payments left they decided to strike now before anything could happen to Jerry Jones. Jones is 79 years old and those two lump sums won’t be enough to afford Davis the type of lifestyle she is accustomed to living at least according to Jones’ lawyer.
Davis wants to be an HEIR to the Throne, so she gets paid the same way Jerry Jones’ kids that he acknowledges will after he passes away or she wants him to pay her a lot of money now to go away if you believe Jones side of the story.
Jerry Jones has paid nearly $3 million to the woman who says she is his biological daughter, including her full tuition at SMU and a $70,000 Range Rover on her 16th birthday, and to her mother, according to the Little Rock, Arkansas, lawyer who delivered the payments on behalf of the Dallas Cowboys owner.
Lawyer Don Jack told ESPN that he made regular payments on Jones’ behalf to Alexandra Davis, the 25-year-old congressional aide who filed a paternity lawsuit against Jones on March 3, and her mother, Cynthia Spencer Davis, whom Jones met in 1995 when she was a ticket-counter agent for American Airlines in Arkansas.
Through her attorney, Davis has asked a court to revoke the agreement struck by her mother when she was 1 and for Jones to be declared her father. Her lawyer, Andrew A. Bergman, has said repeatedly that she is not seeking money and that, after years of being shunned by Jones, his client wants only to be able to put his name on her birth certificate.
But Jack said he got a far different impression of Davis’ motives when he met with her and her mother for dinner at a Dallas steakhouse several years ago.
“In that meeting, Alex read to me a personal letter she had drafted to Jerry Jones in which she expressed her dissatisfaction with what she had received and sought $20 million,” Jack said. “She stated that if that amount was paid, she would not bother Mr. Jones again and would keep their relationship confidential.”
Jack told ESPN that periodic requests from Davis and her mother for money and other expenses exceeded the amount that Jones agreed to pay in the trust agreement by nearly $1 million over the years.
Those additional expenses include $33,000 for Davis’ “Sweet 16” birthday party, which was featured on the reality TV show “Big Rich Texas.” In addition, Jones paid “all of Alex’s education expenses,” including four years at SMU and one year at a private high school, Wilkinson said. Jones also paid $24,000 for Davis to take a trip abroad after she graduated from college and $25,000 for Davis and her mother to take a Christmas vacation in Paris, Wilkinson said.
“The facts clearly show that millions of dollars have been paid,” Wilkinson said, “and on top of that, a $20 million shakedown attempt was made. I think this speaks for itself as to the motives.”
It is clear that Jones believes this woman is his daughter because of all the money he has paid out.
Now, that the information is public it will be interesting to see if he cuts her off or not. Word is Jerry told her she will never ever be in a family picture.
