Paul George had an incredible Game 5 for the Indiana Pacers against Miami Heat, going off for 37 points and sinking shots that killed off the Heat and sapped all the enthusiasm that his opponents could muster. But just a day after his momentous game George has been served paternity papers from a former stripper, Daniela Rajic.
The 24-year old Rajic claimed that she met George at a Miami strip club - Tootsie's Cabaret according to The Big Lead - and that the baby girl she gave birth to at the start of May is his. Rajic filed a paternity suit against George in Manhattan Family Court on Wednesday.
Despite the two no longer being together after their relationship only lasted for a few months, George has come out and said that he would definitely be prepared to support the mother and daughter.
“If and when there is legal confirmation that I am the father, I will fully embrace my responsibilities,” the 24-year old PG said in the statement.
A representative for George sent out an email saying, “As Paul has said all along, if and when the legal process confirms that the baby is his, he will fully embrace his responsibilities as a father and provide emotional and financial support to the child. The process has been amicable and we hope it will continue to be until this issue is clarified.”
George and Pacers coach Frank Vogel will want his mind focused on tonights crucial Game 6 in what is an elimination game for Indiana.
