In a legal battle with a 26-year-old woman who says the billionaire is her biological father, a judge has ordered Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys, to submit to a paternity test, according to a report from ESPN.
Alexandra Davis, who claims Jones is her biological father, filed a paternity lawsuit against him way back in March. A Texas judge issued the order for genetic testing after Davis previously alleged in a separate lawsuit she was conceived from a relationship Jones had with her mother in the mid-1990s.
A lawyer for Jones admitted that the Cowboys owner has paid out millions to Davis and her mom, Cynthia Spencer Davis. Jones’ lawyer, Don Jack, told ESPN.com that he has regularly given money to the two Davis women on Jones’ behalf since Alexandra’s birth on Dec. 16, 1996.
“On numerous occasions, I have made payments on behalf of Mr. Jones to Cindy and Alex Davis,” Jack said.
He also noted that he gave Cynthia Davis a lump sum payment of $375,000 in 1995 and also revealed that Jones gave Cynthia Davis “monthly payments for child support which ultimately totaled over $2 million.”
Jerry is also said to have set up two trusts to help pay for Alexandra Davis’ upbringing, as those trusts have paid out more than $1.2 million over the past 25 years. According to ESPN, Alexandra Davis is expected to get two more payments from the trusts.
Aside from this paternity, Jones also made headlines over a controversial 1957 photo where he was spotted in that was taken outside a high school where a group of white students appeared to be blocking a group of Black students from entering the school. Jones said he showed up to see what was going on and not to participate in the mob.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
