New York: Michael Jordan has been sued by a woman, who has alleged that the basketball legend is the father of her teenage son, according to new lawsuit charges.

The suit filed in Fulton County, Georgia, claims that Pamela Smith got pregnant with Jordan’s son after a 1995 tryst and her son Grant Pierce Jay Jordan Reynolds — aka Taj — was born in June 1996, the New York Post reported.

In December, Taj posted a video claiming that the Chicago Bulls star is his father.

He said that if people have been hearing any rumours about Jordan on Twitter, Instagram, MediaTakeout, they are true.

He felt that people should know and that Jordan should be more in his life.

Taj claims that Jordan knows that he is his son and he has met him.

At the time of the alleged fling, Jordan was married to Juanita Vanoy.

Smith also charged that she wants to retain full custody but now wants child support as well as medical expenses for her son; she is also pushing to make Jordan Taj’s legal last name.
