Former stripper Daniela Rajic filed a paternity suit against Paul George on Wednesday claiming that the Indiana Pacers baller is the father of a child to whom she gave birth on May 1, Page Six reports.
If this story sounds familiar, it’s because it’s a follow-up to an item that became public in February. You may recall that George addressed the rumor by saying that if it turned out that he was the father of the child, he would step up and handle business.
Now it looks like Rajic is trying to force his hand.
The New York Post’s Page Six says Rajic filed the suit in Manhattan Family Court. She and George met in Miami and dated last summer while she was supposedly working as a stripper at Tootsie’s Cabaret. Rajic has moved back to New York to be with her family while she raises her newborn daughter.
As previously explained in an LBS post, George was dating Doc Rivers’ daughter, Callie, earlier this year. I’m sure this whole thing made for some uncomfortable conversations between them.
Whatever is going with George off the court didn’t seem to bother him in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Miami Heat. He scored 37 points on 15-of-28 shooting and had six steals and six assists. He really took over late in the game, proving that he was pretty focused and mentally strong.
Here’s a photo Rajic posted to Instagram when she was pregnant:
At least George has good taste.
