Indiana Pacers Paul George is back in the news. First, there was a rumor going around that contended he had an inappropriate relationship with a teammate’s girlfriend, which led to the team’s lackluster play in the final weeks of the season. There is no information to conclude that as fact, but what is actual fact that a paternity suit was filed today on behalf of a former stripper that alleges the star NBA forward is the father of her newborn daughter that she gave birth to on May 1st. The lawsuit wants Paul George to take a court ordered DNA test and acknowledge the child as his daughter. The woman’s lawyer claims that he has already saw the little girl and has voluntarily paid for medical expenses. George’s rep says,
“if and when the legal process confirms that the baby is his, he will fully embrace his responsibilities as a father and provide emotional and financial support to the child.”-George’s rep
The timing is great considering Paul George just had the biggest game of his career and the Indiana Pacers have an elimination game tonight to stay alive against the Miami Heat in the NBA playoffs. No pressure!
