Michael Jordan Wants Paternity Suit Dismissed
The woman, Pamela Smith, recently filed a paternity suit against Jordan, however his attorney says in a document filed with the court that the paternity was "conclusively established" in a 2003 divorce court filing between Smith and her then-husband Glenville G. Reynolds, according to the New York Post.
Jordan spokeswoman Estee Portnoy released a statement to The Associated Press that said, "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."
