Woman Ordered To Pay Michael Jordan Legal Fees in Paternity Case
Laquetta Theus, one of two Atlanta women in recent months to claim that Michael Jordan fathered her child, has had her lawsuit tossed out and was ordered to pay the basketball legend $6000 in legal fees.
The 30-year-old filed a paternity suit in August of 2013 claiming that Jordan was the father of her 3-year-old daughter. A previous paternity test, however proved that Hubert Henderson Jr. was the father of Theus’ child. Theus alleged that Hubert Henderson was an alias used by Jordan. Her case was dismissed earlier this month.
According to John Mayour, Jordan’s Atlanta attorney, a Fulton County judge order Theus to pay Jordan’s legal fees totaling $6,510.61.
Earlier this year another Atlanta area woman, Pamela Smith, filed a paternity suit against Jordan seeking child support for her teenage son. Smith later dropped her suit and was counter-sued by Jordan. Smith was ordered to pay $9,704.13 to Jordan to cover his legal fees.
