Michael Jordan Facing a Paternity Lawsuit

A woman who claims that Michael Jordan fathered her child in the mid-1990s has filed suit, and is seeking a paternity test to prove it. Per TMZ: “Pamela Smith claims in her paternity suit — filed February 6 in Fulton County, GA — she became pregnant after having sex with Jordan in 1995. Pamela gave birth to Grant Pierce Jay Jordan Reynolds — aka Taj — in June 1996. Jordan was married to Juanita Vanoy at the time he allegedly had sex with Smith. Pamela says in her legal docs she welcomes a paternity test to prove Jordan’s the dad. She wants full custody and child support. She also wants Jordan to pay the kid’s medical expenses. Pamela also wants the judge to make Jordan the boy’s legal last name. The docs do not describe any alleged relationship between Smith and Jordan. ‘Taj’ posted a YouTube video (below) in December declaring that Jordan’s his daddy.”

  • shutup

    Turns out even his sperm have that competitive streak…

  • shocked

    Omg this is a first. A black dude with multiple children by multiple women, with at least one out of wedlock. This isn’t Jordan’s first paternity suit. He actually doged a bullet before thisbone.

    If true, this means everything on WorldStarHipHop is true without a doubt

    There should be a faint birthmark near this kid’s hair line that reads “23″.

    C’mon now. No one who believes they have Michael Jordan’s baby waits this long to get a paternity test. NO ONE.

    ^ random racism alert.

    Not named in the paternity suit: Horace Grant, Paul Pierce, Jerry “Ice” Reynolds and others whose names did not make the cut on the kid’s birth certificate.

    does he wear baggy jeans?

  • robb

    one said he said: “just call me taj”. they asked why, he said: “why not?”


    Unlikely as it may sound by the way it’s presented here, this appears to be a legitimate claim, given the young man’s physical resemblance to Jordan and the various photographs circulating of Jordan with the boy’s mother dating back to the time of his conception and the photograph of Jordan with the boy from a few years ago. It may eventually be proven false by DNA testing, but for now it looks to be true.

    Hopefully this lady takes His Airness to Maury for a paternity test, maybe just maybe MJ will give us a clip like this..

    Oh yea like there’s no truth to that. Stop being so sensitive.

  • Chukaz

    She’s seeking child support after 17 years? That’s BS. If he owes her child support for those 17 years he didn’t know he was the father, doesn’t she owe him visitation and sh*t? This is almost as bad as when that one dude was suing LeBron because he claimed LeBron was his son.

    Stop being so racist.

  • jack

    Stop your bros from making and abandoning babies all over the place. Give them condoms, talk to them about Plan B, encourage them to marry Shaniqua before she gives birth to Taj.

  • jack

    Did you see the kid? No way he didn’t know he was the father. He looks more like MJ than the other two sons by far.

  • Ugh

    And that was even more racist. Wow. That’s right, it’s Random Black Man’s job to be held accountable and responsible for Other Random Black Man’s actions. It’s like living in the 1950s in here most of the time.

  • Ugh

    Which would be the motivation for the lawsuit – “I named my kid Jordan, now he LOOKS like Jordan, if this goes to a jury I’m winning, even if the blood test fails!”
    Also, the dude on YouTube using the name Michael Jordan commented no this video and it’s hilarious!

    Funny. I am responsible for my “bros” but you are strictly and individual. That racist logic is classic.
