Michael Jordan Dismisses Paternity Suit Allegations

Sports icon Michael Jordan has asked a U.S. judge to dismiss a paternity suit filed against him by a woman in Georgia, insisting the father of her teenage son has already been identified - and it's not him.

The basketball icon was hit with legal action by Pamela Smith last month, amid claims her son Grant was the product of a fling she had with Jordan in 1995. She demanded the retired athlete take a DNA test to prove his paternity and requested child support and medical expenses.

However, Jordan is fighting the accusations and his lawyer filed a motion to dismiss the case on Monday, according to TMZ.com.

A statement released by the retired sportsman's representative reads: "Public records show that the paternity of the child was established in a prior case in this same court many years ago and that Michael Jordan is not the father.

"It is unfortunate that well-known figures are the target of these kind of claims. Michael Jordan will vigorously defend himself and his reputation."
