Michael Jordan, one of the most celebrated athletes in sports history has been hit with a paternity suit. According to TMZ, Pamela Smith had a fling with the NBA legend back in 1995 which resulted in the birth of Grant Pierce Jay Jordan Reynolds in June 1996 while the Chicago Bulls were putting the finishing touches on the Seattle Sonics in the NBA finals.
In December 2012, Taj posted a video claiming Jordan is his father.
“I have some exclusive, exclusive information I feel like everybody should know. If you’ve been hearing any rumors on Twitter, Instagram, MediaTakeout, any of that…it’s true,” Taj proclaims. I feel like ya’ll should know and I feel like he should be more in my life about it, too.” “I’m his son. I’ve met him.” “I want him to be more in my life.”
Smith charges in the suit, filed on Feb. 6 in Fulton County, Ga, that she wants to retain full custody but also now wants child support as well as medical expenses for her son. Smith is also pushing to make Jordan Taj’s legal last name.
