Mistress Files Paternity Action Against Tiger

6/17/2010 6:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned porn star Devon James has just filed a paternity action against Tiger Woods.

0617_woods_doc_launch_ex

Alleged mistress #15 filed legal docs in Manatee County, Florida, asking a judge to determine the paternity of Austin Brinling, her 9-year-old son.  James filed the action under her legal name, Melinda Jannette.  The respondent on the petition is Elderick [sic] Woods.

According to documents attached to the petition and obtained by TMZ, the legal action is designed to "establish paternity, parental responsibility, time-sharing, and/or child support of a minor child or children."  The document goes on:  "This means that you are trying to legally establish who is the father of the child."

As we first reported, James' mother (who currently has custody of the boy) claims a DNA test was performed in 2002 and showed another man was the daddy.

James does not believe her mother really has any DNA results and her rep tells us she wants to force Tiger to submit to DNA testing.

We shot video of James at the courthouse, talking about her legal move.  It will be posted shortly.

Yea - why is she waiting until now to come forward? Her mom has her kid and she is a porn star. Ya think she slept with anyone else? LOL. Could be anyones kid. Tiger has money. How do you tell your kid you slept with sooo many men you don't know who their father is? Awful........

Has anyone raised the question that since this woman does not have money, perhaps this whole lawsuit is being financed by Rachel to further separate Tiger and Elin with help from her favorite attorney, Gloria?

She doesn't even have custody of this child she claims to need child support for, she using this kid to try and get paid. The child is 9 years old why wait this long?

These bimbos are absolutely crazy . . . it must be the water!! Question though -- why are you calling this woman a "mistress"? When she and Tiger dated Tiger was very single and not married to Elin. Technically only the bimbos he messed around with 'after' he and Elin were married should be called "mistress."

If it turns out that he's not the baby's father, is anyone going to apologize to him? Probably not.

FOR EVERYONE AT TMZ !!!!!! I AM NOT ABLE TO REVIEL MY IDENTIY FOR PERSONAL REASONS. TIGER WOODS IS NOT THE FATHER I KNOW THIS WOMAN AND I KNEW HER WHEN SHE BECAME PREGNANT.SHE WAS AN ESCORT THEN AND THE FATHER IS THE OTHER MAN THAT WAS PREVIOUSLY MENTIONED.HE IS IN PRISON.I OPENED THE RESULTS OF THE PATERNITY TEST MYSELF AS HE WAS MY BOYFRIEND AT THE TIME.99.6% POSITIVE. SHE HAS NO SOUL AND WILL SURELY BURN IN HELL FOR DOING THIS TO HER OWN CHILD AND MR WOODS FAMILY AS WELL.IT IS NO WONDER HER MOTHER HAS HER SON...MR WOODS SHOULD SUE HER FOR SHE KNOWS THE TRUTH.

....this is NOT tiger son...The father is a half black,half latino federal inmate,Devon james...or whatever the prosititute calls herself know,because there was a dna test done in 2002 which I saw the results for,even if she was to high to take notice.....its a real shame when someone will drag thier own kid through the mud

AFFA    

For Henry Hill

I personally don't think that Tiger likes the black chicks so much. I mean the only one i know of him dating was Tyra Banks for a few months if that long. Let have the white girls, if he wants them. He may not have them if he didn't have so much money. Plus the white girls are so much less drama. Can you imagin what it would have been like if his wife was black! Phew i think he still got off lucky. Bang away Tiger by the way he should start bangin them again his game suck as of late.
