Devon James' Alleged Baby Daddy: I Didn't Give DNA

7/14/2010 7:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tiger Woods says Devon James' paternity claim against him should be dropped because another guy was already determined to be the father -- but that other guy says he never even took a DNA test.

As we previously reported, documents filed back in 2002 show there is a 99.9% chance that Pele Watkins is the father of James' 9-year-old son.

But in a letter dated August 1, 2009 -- and obtained by TMZ -- Watkins, writing from prison, tells James he never took a DNA test. At one point he wrote, "They will never get DNA from me."

He closes the letter, "I never took a DNA test but tell your mom I will fight her for messing wit [sic] me in jail."

We're told Devon will file the letter with the court in response to Tiger's motion to dismiss.

Don't they take DNA from all inmates? As well, isn't said DNA available for paternity testing so that monies earned while in prison can go towards the care of a child?

Dude is seriously confused. I don't think he'd remember if he got DNA tested or not.

Who cares who the dad is. Just raise the boy and quit making drama.

Is Gloria Allred paying the expenses through all this for Devon since she is alleged to have no money.
The timing is great - just when Tiger is due to play in another tourney.

Tiger has bought off more people in this world than you can imagine. He surely can buy off a DNA test result or have one falsified with help and $$$$.

Carmen, "The media has reported" and we all know that the "media" is very reliable when it comes to stories such as this.

I'm a paralegal and I also degreed in hand writing analysis. You'll notice that not only is the width of the letters differ in the p.s. and in the body of the letter (the body is a thicker ink, while the p.s. a different pen is used), but, just on sight without even doing a mapping of the strokes, I've counted 25 letters in the p.s. that don't match in the ones in the body of the letter. I hope they hire a analysis for that. She's a fraud. However, why doesn't Tiger just take a test to disprove it once and for all. It's an obvious, just get it over with and quash the rumors.

Hey genius, they took your DNA when you went to prison. How could there be a reprt that says there is 99.9% chance that he is the father if he never took a DNA test?

Oh wow, doesn't baby daddy sound like a real piece of work hm?! They will never get DNA from me? They took it when he went to jail, all those arrested now have to give DNA, fingerprints and palm prints!! What's that with threatening the grandma of the kid too hm - doesn't sound safe around any of them!!
Perhaps baby daddy thinks the test is hard, when in reality one hair, one tiny drop of saliva is enough lol!!
