Michael Jordan Hit with Paternity Lawsuit

Basketball legend Michael Jordan has been hit with a paternity suit in the midst of planning his wedding with fiance Yvette Prieto.

A Georgia woman by the name of Pamela Smith claims the former Chicago Bulls star is the father of her 16-year-old son, Taj, this according to TMZ.

Smith filed a paternity lawsuit on Feb. 6, the same day Jordan announced his wedding date.

The lawsuit, filed in Fulton County, Ga., claims Smith became pregnant with Jordan’s baby back in 1995.

Smith allegedly gave birth in June of the following year to Grant Pierce Jay Jordan Reynolds, known as Taj Jordan. At the time Taj was born, Jordan was still married to ex wife Juanita Vanoy.

Smith is now demanding that Jordan take a paternity test and pay child support and her son’s medical bills. She also wants the judge to make “Jordan” Taj’s legal last name.

The teenager has taken to Twitter and  YouTube to tell the world how he feels about his famous father.

“If you’ve been hearing rumors that I am Michael Jordan’s son… it’s true. 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,” Taj Jordan said on YouTube.
