Pamela Smith is suing former Chicago Bulls star Michael Jordan, claiming that he is the father of her 16-year-old son, Taj, according to TMZ. A paternity lawsuit was filed on February 6, which was the same day that news came out that Jordan and fiancee Yvette Prieto chose April 27th as their wedding day.
The lawsuit was filed in Fulton County, Georgia. It claims that Smith became pregnant with Jordan’s baby in 1995. The baby was born the following year in June and named Grant Pierce Jay Jordan Reynolds, but is known as Taj Jordan. When Taj was born, Jordan was still married to now ex-wife Juanita Vanoy.
Smith wants Jordan to take a paternity test and pay child support and the medical bills of her son. She is also asking the judge to make Jordan Taj’s legal last name. Taj has posted videos on YouTube and made comments on Twitter about the situation.
“If you’ve been hearing rumors that I am Michael Jordan’s son… it’s true,” Taj Jordan said in a video posted on YouTube.
“The reason I am making this video is because I feel like you guys should know, and I feel like he should be more in my life about it.”
