Well damn the results are finally in, drum roll please………Michael Jordan You ARE NOT the FATHER of Pamela Smith’s son Taj.
A woman who filed a false paternity suit against Michael Jordan has been fined for lying about the NBA star fathering her child, according to new reports.
A judge ordered Pamela Smith to pay Jordan’s legal bills after he asked the court to penalise Smith for making the false claims.
The judge handed down the ruling on July 19, stating Smith knew the 17-year-old wasn’t Jordan’s when filing the suit earlier this year, reports TMZ.
On July 19th, Jordan got his wish when a judge hammered Pamela … and here’s why – The judge says Pamela FAILED to mention that paternity was established way back in 2003 — and M.J.’s NOT the daddy.
The judge called Pamela’s bogus claim one big publicity stunt, pointing out she hired a publicist before even getting a lawyer … and then dragged Michael through the mud.
The judge ordered Pamela to pay Jordan’s legal bills – $9,704.13. Actually, it sounds like she got off cheap.
Jordan remains one of the most recognized sports figures in the world nearly 10 years after his retirement from the NBA and is considered by many to be the greatest basketball player of all time.
He was a 14-time NBA all-star, won six championships with the Chicago Bulls and was named the finals MVP six times.
In 2010, the NBA Board of Governors unanimously approved Jordan’s purchase of the Bobcats, making him the first former NBA player ever to become the majority owner of a league franchise.
This is not the first time he has been the subject of a paternity suit – in 1991, his former lover Karla Knafel claimed the star was the father of her child, but a DNA test proved that this was not the case.
