Michael Jordan is used to winning in the game of basketball, and it appears that his good luck has trickled over into a life situation. The a paternity test brought on by a woman claiming that Jordan is the father of her 16-year-old son, has been thrown out, TMZ reports. Pamela Smith, the woman accusing Jordan of fathering her son, filed paperwork in Georgia to have the case dismissed. Her request was granted “without prejudice,” which gives her the opportunity to re-file, if she likes. While Smith has yet to release details behind the decision to have the case dismissed, it may point to a settlement reached between both parties. Not long after the story was announced, Jordan denied being the father of Grant Pierce Jay Jordan Reynolds, who goes by the name Taj, and aspires to be a rapper. “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,” Jordan’s spokeswoman, Estee Portnoy, said. “He also filed a counterclaim seeking sanctions for the false claims made against him. It is unfortunate that well-known figures are the target of these kind of claims. Michael Jordan will vigorously defend himself and his reputation.” According to the lawsuit, Smith demanded that Jordan take a paternity test immediately, driving the belief that she was confident in the paternity results. She claims to have met the basketball star in the late ’80s. Jordan, and his ex-wife, Juanita, divorced in 2006, after reaching a $168 million divorce settlement. He is currently engaged to Cuban model, Yvette Prieto.
