Paternity suit dropped against Michael Jordan

An Atlanta woman who says basketball legend Michael Jordan fathered her 16-year-old son has dropped her paternity suit against him.

Pamela Smith, 48, filed a paternity suit against Jordan last month seeking child support, news that we are sure shocked his legion of fans. Jordan, 50, denied he was the father and also has filed a counterclaim seeking sanctions against Smith for making false claims, according to a report by Reuters. According to Jordan's lawyers, Smith acknowledged in a previous divorce proceeding that her now-ex husband is the father of her child.

Smith's attorney said she voluntarily dismissed the case "without prejudice," which means she can re-file it later. Michael Jordan's attorneys said there has been no settlement or money paid to Smith. Recently, Smith asked a Georgia court to force Jordan to submit to a DNA test to prove whether he is the father.

Now, let's breathe a collective sigh of relief!
