ESPN has been teasing us with a Michael Jordan documentary. During the fleet of NBA games on Christmas, we finally got a sneak peek of the documentary. The Last Dance teaser trailer dropped and it was a pleasant surprise. The trailer covers some of the fascinating internal dynamics between Jordan and teammates Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman. The Last Dance takes a detailed look at Jordan and his meteoric rise to fame throughout the 90s when he was playing for the Chicago Bulls. The documentary is being pushed back to some time in 2020, but whenever it comes out it is guaranteed to get tons of attention!
Pamela Y. Smith shook the media back in 2013 after she came forth and filed a paternity suit against former NBA legend Michael Jordan. Smith claimed he was the father of her 17-year-old son at the time. She demanded a DNA test, full custody and child support. Of course the courts did not work in her favor behind the accusations against the former NBA player. The paternity suit was dismissed alleging that Michael Jordan fathered her son, Grant Pierce Jordan Reynolds. Pamela Y. Smith was fined by an Atlanta court and accused of making false claims against the NBA Hall of Famer. For the first time in years she is finally speaking out about what happened with her prior relationship with Michael Jordan and the case.
On Wednesday, March 21, Pamela Y. Smith opened up to me about the entire experience.
How did you and Michael Jordan meet?
“We met in the late 1980’s ( full story on how we met is in the Book)”
Did Michael Jordan ever agree to the paternity test?
“The civil case was based on a Georgia statue and law, when it comes to a child being born, before birth automatically the parents through marriage is said to be the father. (not the biological father).”
Why do you feel he has been avoiding the paternity test?
“He avoided the test based on Money not the GA statue.”
How does your son feel about what has happened with the case thus far?
“My son felt Michael should have spoken up or at least acknowledged the relationship existed.”
Does your son want a relationship with Michael Jordan?
What are you in hopes of gaining from this case? Do you simply just want Michael Jordan to acknowledge his son?
“The book is about repairing the lie. Michael stated he did not have a relationship with me prior to his first marriage.”
How has this entire experience affected your life and your son’s life?
“It affects us based on the lie told but not the truth. In the end its his loss for not having a relationship with his son.”
Do you feel that due to Michael Jordan’s status that they are mistreating you with the handling of this case?
“Yes, because of his money and status, people assume he has power. So they would do anything for money even if it lies or damages the other person. That’s why in my book you can read the truth and see the proof. That’s the glory in it……”
“My book is my Memoir of the Love, Sex, and Power of my relationship with one of the Greatest Of All Time Basketball stars Michael J. Jordan. I believe we shared the journey of real love and friendship. A love that would last forever, yet never seen.” -Pamela Y. Smith
Pamela Y. Smith simply wants Michael Jordan to stop pretending the relationship never existed and to face the truth about his alleged son. In her new book Smith tells it all about her relationship with the NBA legend. You can get your copy of the book by clicking HERE.
I must admit her son looks just like Michael Jordan so hopefully he will just come forth and take the test and lay this matter to rest.
