Michael Jordan Denies Paternity Suit Payoff


Days after filing a lawsuit trying to force Michael Jordan to take a paternity test to prove he was the father of her sixteen year old son, Pamela Y. Smith withdrew her suit leaving many to believe there had been a payoff [click here if you missed that].

Michael Jordan's spokesperson says there's been no such thing...

Estee Portnoy confirmed on Monday that Pamela Smith dropped her suit and said there was no settlement or money paid, calling the suit without merit.

Pamela's attorney Randall Kessler also released a statement regarding the dismissal.
"Ex-Girlfriend of Michael Jordan, Ms. Pamela Smith authorized a dismissal of the current suit against Mr. Jordan. She began this case without an attorney, did her best to file what she believed to be a legally appropriate case. She then hired our firm. Our firm reviewed the legal posture of the case, the history of the case, the filed pleadings and the relevant law. Ms. Smith has relied on our advice, has carefully considered the pro’s and cons of continuing the case and has determined that dismissal at this time, without prejudice, is what is in her son’s best interests."

ex-girlfriend? wasn't he married at the time? what happened to morals? she know she took the paternity test 16 years ago. She just kept lying to her son and he called her on it but she passed on his and her public humiliation

In my best Maury voice.. "Michael in the case of 16 year old Taj, you are not the father"!

1:25, Are you implying that only married people have morals? And that non-husband and non-wives are irrelevant in relationships that aren't recognized as "marriage" by the state? I'm just curious because I only ever see people on this blog bring up "morals" when it comes to marriages. It's funny, 'cause morals are swept under the rug when pre-marital sex, abortions, out of wedlock children, etc. are topics of discussion.

There is NO WAY she didn't get paid. The soon to be new wife did not want this hanging over their heads during the upcoming nuptials.

@1:35 PM - i think what's she was implying is that married couples have an obligation under GOD to uphold the vows they've taken in HIS presence. Single people dont have that obligation, making them more immoral in God's eyes

The young man looks like his mother. So he probably does not resemble either man, Ms. Smiths' ex-husband or MJ. Look at their picture up top, he looks enough like his mother to NOT resemble anyone else (maybe an uncle).

I really don't think MJ is the father nor would an opportunist wait 15 years to cash in. He ain't pay this brawd.

Also Who ever heard of a lawyer doing shit for free!! She got paid. Trust me.

Of course she got paid and of course the muthafuggas would act like it was all on the up & up. Next topic..

For some of you internet attorneys, she did not get paid, her ex-husband was going to file an suit against her in court, because she has admitted to defrauding him in the divorce, therefore, she had to drop suit. She will have to wait until he makes 18 to file another suit against Michael. She put herself in the mist of this, by going to the public and filing suit. In Atlanta, you can serve jail time for defrauding someone in a paternity case. She was clearly advised to wait until he was of age and he can follow with his own suit against Michael, if he so chooses to.

So single people are "immoral", but married people aren't? Weren't married people single before they got married though? You religious folks are hilarious.

1:42, I'm actually married. I just don't understand why most married people feel the need to shun or act arrogant towards unmarried individuals.

Anonymous said...

She got paid because MJ's people did not make any type of statement saying that he was not the father. So yeah she got paid and probably had to sign some type of confidentiality agreement stating that she would never speak on the matter again or she would have to pay MJ. But I wonder if the boy had to sign to cause when he hits 18 he can talk about whatever he wants. Mom is setting it up now so if something should happen to MJ her son can collect some of that air jordan money too.

Yall some idiots with this whole "you should have been married before you have kids" BS... RWS - why dont you block these trolls. WTF

word is she didn't get paid, she was already paid by him. what she wanted was a phone call from him to her son personally acknowledging him. once he did that she dropped the suit.

But Pecola's mother completely ignored her feelings of pain and instead continued the comforting of her white "daughter". you are doing could give you more girls than splashing money around. The church wedding is wedding in the present of God.

I think she got paid off..the boy resembles Michael more than his real sons. If Michael did not father the child then he would have wanted to take the test just to prove that it was nonsense. IF YOU BELIEVE FOR A SECOND THAT SHE DID NOT GET PAID OFF YOU ARE A FOOL. The end.

What about people who get married at City Hall?

Marriage is more than just a "religious" thing- it is a LEGAL bond between two people that gives them rights that single people who live together do not have.

1. Legally married people have the right to inherit from one another with no will;
2. Any children born within the bonds of marriage are LEGALLY considered the product of both parents-no "baby daddy" has to sign the birth certificate;
3. Legally married people cannot be barred from hospital rooms or from making important decisions about the health care/treatment of their spouse. I have seen 70 year old people have no one who can legally make medical decisions for them because they have no LEGAL spouse and/or do not have children. Of course their parents/siblings are deceased. The live-in girl/boyfriend has NO LEGAL RIGHTS unless the sick person makes their partner their health proxy.

So there are great benefits to being LEGALLY married. Hopefully the people made good choices and their marriages are happy ones-there is such a thing you know :)

well if the father paid 16 yrs old child support for another man kid i want every dime back and my name removed from the birth certificate... but see she doesnt want that.. and you cant make a man take a dna and pay back child support if you already established in court your ex husband was the father.

3:55, Marriage is actually a LEGAL bond between two people and the government. It's a European doctrine that has been imposed on the Western world. You see how easy it is to get married? Date, propose, buy a ring, exchange vows, sign marriage license. But it's even harder and more costly to get out of a marriage. Marriage serves no financial or sexual perks to men, period. Only women, like you, obsess over it because you know that you and your children will benefit solely from your husband. How is that equal or even legal?

She probably been getting paid wanted more he said no she put the the story out he gave her more money to shut her up. Off topic he the hoe she don't owe the wife fidelity. Another example of marriage not working

Anonymous said...

@4:05-if you don't think men benefit from marriage you are crazy! If marriage is a "European doctrine" as you say, who do you think created this doctrine? MEN of course!
And European white men do not create ANYTHING that does not benefit them!

I do not obsess over marriage-in fact I am a single woman who has no children who lives alone and takes care of herself 110%. The reason I am not married is because of men who think like you do.

And until I meet a man with whom I can be equally yolked, that I love and that loves me, and who will be a partner and a friend to me, I will not marry.

And of course we will have a beautiful CHURCH wedding!

There are too many "fairy tales" involved with conditioning for marriage. Since these idealistic views are apparently needed to convince people to marry, we have to assume that most people would not do it!

The current concept of marriage....the "for the rest of your life" concept, was developed when the lifespan was a lot shorter, and women were forced into dependency by social mores.

I think marriages can be successful if each party balances the emotional aspects with the practical aspects.

Marriage has always been a financial arrangement, which is why little girls were taught those fairy tales. The fact that they were becoming someone else's property made life miserable once the wedding gown was put into storage, but the cold hard facts were hidden from them just as long as possible.

Women still look for the "one", the "soul mate", and many other constructs that can't possibly be maintained in a sane world, so they give up too much when entering the marriage, only to find out that their man is still...a man, who doesn't have the hormonal background conducive to a monogamous relationship.

These are hard lessons but women are no longer as financially dependent on men as they once were. Marriage now fails because one of the parties refuses to be owned anymore!

If men don't benefit from marriage, why are gay men breaking down the courthouse doors all over the world for the right to marry?

Anonymous said...

4:45, One of the men in gay relationships is also the "woman", that's why.

Anonymous said...

It's NO point in arguing or even trying to talk to Americans about marriage. ALL of us have been CONDITIONED into thinking that marriage is the only way that people can be in relationships. Majority of us marry due to peer pressure and the illusion that a marriage will magically make everything perfect. Majority of us also stay in lackluster marriages to save face and to simply be able too say, "I'm married". A marriage doesn't stop cheating, bankruptcies, foreclosures, insecurities, etc.

Men do too. Most men want the woman who helps them to feel whole and makes everything all right. It's called Friendship --something absent from a lot of relationships. And it's possible b/c with love ALL things are. I'm not a sugar coated idealist, I have witnessed miraculous things and events from the power of simple faith and focused belief.

Most people get exactly what they BELIEVE they will get out of life.

@5:12, A person should be "whole" and "complete" within themselves. Why would you allow another human to have the power to make you feel complete? What happens when said person is no longer able to do that? Then you're broken, right? Like someone said, marriage has been fed to women as a fairytale illusion and this is why women get hurt the most. Stop giving men jurisdiction over you in your entirety.

@5:28, Clearly I live in America if I'm speaking on America. And what faulty point are you attempting to make? The objective of my comment was to insinuate that talking to most Americans about marriage is pointless. Marriage is a social construction and half the time it fails, yet we as "Americans" marry the most out of all other countries and we're the most "religious". It's irony and comical hypocrisy at its finest. You're welcome. Peace.

Thanks. I felt the ex-husband was going to take her to court, especially if he was ordered to pay child support for a kid that's not his.

My thing is even if her son does file a suit against Michael himself and it's proven that Mike IS the father, then the ex-husband should still be allowed to sue her for fraud.

I believe he is Mike's kid and Mike knows it too. The fact that he didn't submit a DNA test to knock this bullshit out if he truly believed he wasn't PROVED IT TO ME.

That kid resembles him big time.

Is there a pic of her ex-husband anywhere? Fucking tramp, I swear.

@5:47 your pseudo intellectual gibberish comes across as you being lonely, desperate, and miserable and mad because nobody wants your ass. Marriage is what God gave human beings to raise families in with love. All of this baby mama, out of wedlock, no strings attached business is new to the past 30 years. Maybe you'll find someone who wants your ugly ass someday-but then again PROBABLY NOT

Anonymous said...

@7:25 why is she a tramp? Is Michael a tramp? Both of them laid down with each other and made a baby, so why are you blaming her and calling her names. If anything Michael is the one to blame for taking off his pants knowing he had a wife and kids at home. Shame on you.

@2:38 Thank you for bringing the facts to the table. It was also stated in the documents that the boy's biological father is her ex-husband and it was DETERMINED the day the boy was born. So your real baby daddy is a multi BILLIONAIRE but instead of you going forth with it from day one, you wait almost two decades later to mention it? Why can't people see that this woman is shady? Even if she was paid to go away her stories have been too inconsistent for her to withstand a trial anyway. It was probably in the best interest of them both that she just drop it. And why does the attorney mention her as his EX girlfriend? She effed him while he was married, had a baby then waited 16 years later to pin it on him. That DOES not spell out girlfriend (or even EX). I don't know why some people think that having sex with a person automatically makes them your BF/GF. That's not the way it works. Especially when you're effin a married individual. Sex is just sex- it does NOT constitute a relationship.

=======================================

I feel she's a tramp, because she got pregnant while ENGAGED to her ex-husband. She knew there was a chance the kid might not be his and went through with the marriage anyway. She's a deceiving, conniving WHORE.

Shit, MJ's a slut too. Please don't get it twisted. I ain't got no love for that man either, but I always picture myself being a dude and finding out that a kid I thought was mine for years isn't, I would be major fucking pissed.

I probably wouldn't abandon the kid though, because that's just ME and it wouldn't be the child's fault, but I would have no relationship for the whore of a mother and would make her life fucking miserable.
