ATLANTA (AP) -- An Atlanta woman has filed a lawsuit saying basketball Hall of Famer and Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan is the father of her teenage son.

The lawsuit was filed Feb. 6 by Pamela Smith in Fulton County Superior Court. It requests Jordan take a paternity test, pay child support and share medical, dental and hospital costs that are not covered by insurance.

The lawsuit also requests the boy's last name be changed to Jordan, and for a judge to order the Georgia Department of Vital Records to issue him a new birth certificate.

Publicist Estee Portnoy says Jordan has no comment and calls to Smith's home and office were not immediately returned Friday afternoon.

According to court documents, Smith does not have an attorney and a court date is scheduled for March 12.

DOH!!!

This is the screwing he gets for the screwing he got! Michael, Tiger and Obama should get together for a few cocktails to celebrate their success, or lack thereof...

It would appear...

MJ "scored" not just on the court. He's old news. Nothing to see here...move on.

Who cares

Who cares

Stop the Press

Is this really news? Anyone who follows the NBA and the players know what the story is. MJ is lucky this is the only that has come forward.
