Michael Jordan stayed winning when he was on the basketball court, and it has carried over to the court room, too. A judge has ordered the woman that falsely accused Air Jordan of fathering her now 17-year old struggle rapper son about $10,000, the cost of the NBA legend’s legal bills.
Pamela Smith’s paternity case was dismissed, leaving many to a speculate a financial settlement was made. However, it looks like she was looking for a payday, which has now backfired.
TMZ broke the story … Pamela Smith filed a paternity suit against Jordan, claiming he was the father of her 17-year-old kid. She demanded a DNA test, full custody and child support. Jordan called B.S. — and even asked the court to bitch slap Smith for wasting his time.
On July 19th, Jordan got his wish when a judge hammered Pamela … and here’s why — The judge says Pamela FAILED to mention that paternity was established way back in 2003 — and M.J.’s NOT the daddy.
The judge called Pamela’s bogus claim one big publicity stunt, pointing out she hired a publicist before even getting a lawyer … and then dragged Michael through the mud.
The judge ordered Pamela to pay Jordan’s legal bills — $9,704.13. Actually, it sounds like she got off cheap.
That’s about 60 pairs of Air Jordan 3s, not including tax.
Michael Jordan wins, again.
