Michael Jordan

I Am NOT The Father!

Michael Jordan
doesn't need Maury Povich to tell him he's not the daddy, he says he knows it already ... and filed documents today requesting the paternity case filed against him be dismissed.

As TMZ first reported, Pamela Smith filed docs in Fulton County, GA in an attempt to establish the NBA legend as father of her son, Grant Pierce Jay Jordan Reynolds, aka Taj.

Jordan's lawyer filed to have the case dismissed today, saying paternity of the teen had already been established ... and #23 was not the father.

MJ's rep released a statement saying, "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."

The statement continued, "It is unfortunate that well-known figures are the target of these kind of claims. Michael Jordan will vigorously defend himself and his reputation."

Taj posted a video on YouTube declaring MJ is his father. So far ... no update to that clip.

There are so many people on here bashing the mother, bashing the kid and saying Jordan is not the father. It is like those movie review people are paid to flood sites with. Who is paying all of you imbeciles? I say there should definitely be a DNA test. They probably just did a legal assumption of fatherhood to her ex husband, simply because they were married at the time.

FINE: Michael Jordan cleared his name. But what about the innocent child who is heartbroken right now?? What about him??? He is probably humiliated in front of his peers at school. His mother lied to him for over a decade. His dreams of having a father are dead. MJ should do something to help him anyway! Maybe pay his college tuition and be a good role model. He can still be a father figure: look at all the step parents out there, who are not blood related to their step child, but are still wonderful, supportive, loving parents? Step up MJ!

In 1999, a dude in his 20s showed me a photo of his Vietnamese Mom with Tom Selleck. He was born in Vietnam during the war. He was new to USA and didn't know English. His Mom said Selleck was a soldier and his Dad. The dude asked me to help find Selleck. Found Selleck's brother, who said Selleck was never a soldier, but had done some USO shows. The Mom had lied to her own child all those years.
