Paul George had a huge game for the Pacers last night. He scored 37 points against the Heat in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals, including 21 points in the fourth quarter, and helped his team avoid elimination by leading the Pacers to a 93-90 win over Miami. But despite that, something tells us that he's probably not feeling all that great this morning.
Late last night, Page Six reported that Daniela Rajic—the 24-year-old former stripper who was allegedly pregnant with George's child—gave birth to a baby girl named Olivia earlier this month. And further, they also reported that Rajic just filed a paternity suit against George in New York City on Wednesday. According to Page Six, she relocated to NYC to be closer to her family after the birth of the baby and now wants George to undergo an official DNA test to prove that he is, in fact, the father of her newborn child.
Page Six reached out to George's camp late yesterday and received a brief statement regarding the matter.
"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," a rep for George said. "The process has been amicable and we hope it will continue to be until this issue is clarified."
It's good to hear that George and Rajic are "amicable" right now. But could this paternity suit have hit at a worse time for the Pacers star? Stay tuned for more details about the suit moving forward.
