And the drama continues with the woman claiming her teenaged son’s father is Michael Jordan. Pamela Smith, the mother of Michael Jordan’s alleged 16 year old son and Micheal (or his reps) just showed up at court today to pursue the paternity case.
Both Pamela and Michael/his reps were due at the Fulton County Courthouse in Atlanta at 2p ET today to pursue the paternity case Pamela has brought in regards to her 16-year-old son.
Pamela has retained famed family attorney, Randy Kessler, whose name is synonymous with several high profile cases of divorce, paternity, custody, and domestic disputes. And despite Michael seeking to dismiss all charges last week, and accusing Pamela of lying, Kessler is confident that today’s proceedings will not result in the dismissal that Jordan is seeking.
Kessler tells us that Jordan simply needs to take the paternity test to resolve the dispute. And he said in a statement on Monday:
“We are honored to have been asked to represent Ms. Smith who has been unable to resolve this matter herself. The vicious statements made in Mr. Jordan’s legal documents will be responded to in her own forthcoming pleadings, but at this time Ms. Smith wants to be clear. Her former husband Mr. Reynolds has not been involved in her child’s life since the divorce in 2005, has never paid support for the child and has shown no interest in the child.
And Pam’s lawyer also struck back at Jordan’s team for accusing her of keeping the child from her ex-husband:
“The claims by Respondent’s counsel that ‘It is troubling that Smith now inflicts measurable harm upon her son while seeking to deprive her son’s father Reynolds, of the rights and privileges of joint legal custody’ are completely unfounded and meant only to disparage her. Our client feels that Mr. Jordan had numerous opportunities to resolve this matter by having a simple conversation with her. If he claims he is not the father, a simple $300 saliva test could likely resolve the issue instead of further court or public involvement.”
Hopefully Maury shows up today too….
