The Dallas Cowboys have had one interesting offseason, but the team itself has nothing on what Jerry Jones is going through off the field. Alexandra Davis recently came out to claim that she is the biological daughter of the Cowboys owner.
According to ESPN, “Jerry Jones has paid nearly $3 million to the woman who says she is his biological daughter, including her full tuition at SMU and a $70,000 Range Rover on her 16th birthday.”
“Jerry Jones has paid nearly $3 million to the woman who says she is his biological daughter, including her full tuition at SMU and a $70,000 Range Rover on her 16th birthday, and to her mother, according to the Little Rock, Arkansas, lawyer who delivered the payments on behalf of the Dallas Cowboys owner.
Lawyer Don Jack told ESPN that he made regular payments on Jones’ behalf to Alexandra Davis, the 25-year-old Congressional aide who filed a paternity lawsuit against Jones on March 3, and her mother, Cynthia Spencer Davis, whom Jones met in 1995 when she was a ticket counter agent for American Airlines in Arkansas.
“On numerous occasions I have made payments on behalf of Mr. Jones to Cindy and Alex Davis,” Jack said in a statement. A longtime friend of Jones, Jack said he struck an agreement on Jones’ behalf with Spencer Davis in 1995, paying her $375,000 and providing “for monthly payments for child support which ultimately totaled over $2 million.”
Jones has not acknowledged that Davis is his biological daughter. Asked why he used the term “child support” in his statement, Jack said, “I used the term child support because that’s what the agreement calls it.” Asked if the “child support” payments indicate that Jones is Davis’ father, Jack paused for five seconds before saying, “I am not going to answer that one. My statement speaks for itself.”
The Cowboys’ owner has a team of lawyers who claim Jones made, “monthly payments for child support which ultimately totaled over $2 million,” per ESPN.
Jones and his team of lawyers claim that Alexandra is looking to extort him, but she is singing a different tune as she just wants to prove that he is her father.
“Her lawyer, Andrew A. Bergman, has said repeatedly that she is not seeking money and that, after years of being shunned by Jones, his client wants only to be able to put his name on her birth certificate.
“I would challenge Jerry Jones to put up any evidence that anyone demanded any money, period. It’s a shame that Jerry Jones wants to further damage his own daughter by now claiming she is extorting him. I challenge them to put up any evidence that supports either one of these defamatory and false claims.”
Despite the payments, Jones continues to deny any relation with Alexandra Davis.
A simple paternity test would solve this entire issue, but it appears Jones does not want that to happen.
