For the second time in recent months, an Atlanta woman has claimed that NBA star Michael Jordan was the father of her child. It is also the second time that the suit has been tossed out and the accuser made to pay thousands of dollars in legal fees for Jordan.
Laquetta Theus, the 30-year-old mother of a 3-year-old girl, filed a paternity suit back in August, claiming that Jordan had fathered her child, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. However, a previous test showed that it was clearly another man who was the father of the child and her suit was dismissed earlier this month.
A county judge ordered the woman to pay the star’s legal fees, which totaled more than $6,500.
Just a few months earlier, a woman named Pamela Smith filed a similar paternity suit demanding child support for a teenage son. Smith eventually dropped the suit, but Jordan sued her back, and she was ordered to pay almost $10,000 in legal fees.
