Indiana Pacers Star Paul George is back in the news, this time it’s probably not something he’s wanting to be in the news for!…
According to a post by the NYPost:
A Manhattan judge slammed NBA All-Star Paul George for being a deadbeat dad in a SEARING paternity ruling, Post has learned.
“Even though it is all but certain that [George] is the father of the 5-month-old baby girl at the center of this case,” JUSTICE Matthew Cooper writes, “he has gone to every length imaginable to avoid taking responsibility for his actions.”
George has jumped through LEGAL hoops to delay the case brought by his ex-stripper baby mama, Queens native Daniela Rajic in May.
Even though, as Cooper notes in the racy ruling, the couple first had sex at the swank× Hotel in Miami, the baby was conceived in California and born in× York, so the fatherhood question belongs in the Empire State.He first asked to remove the case to federal court and when that failed brought a competing proceeding in Florida.
Cooper blasts George’s Sunshine State suit because the baller, while ducking paternity in× York, is asking for full custody in× Florida because Rajic is unemployed.
“It is beyond comprehension how [George] could vouch for his skill at CARING for the child while disparaging [Rajic’s] abilities when he has never even seen the child, asked to see the child, or offered to provide for the child’s needs,” Cooper huffs in the 10-page decision.
Cooper also slaps George for missing a court appearance after he broke his leg on the court in August, because the player was still “able to attend press conferences, travel for recreation and ride in his new Ferrari.”
The jurist also reprimanded the athlete’s attorneys from the large national firm Gordon & Rees.
Cooper blames the LAWYERS FOR bringing the failed federal claim with statements that were “complete and utter fabrication.”
The lawyers, C. Anthony Mulrain and× Colwin, tried to move the state court matter to federal court under false pretenses, claiming it was a child support case when× Rajicwas only asking for paternity to be resolved. Cooper called the move “an egregious abuse of court resources” that likely violates the state’s professional conduct code.”
Colwin and Mulrain did not return calls.
Rajic’s lawyer, Felder, said, “On behalf of our client we are of course gratified.”
