A Manhattan judge blasted Paul George for his role in an ongoing paternity petition, falling just short of calling the injured All-NBA selection a “deadbeat dad.”
Daniela Rajic first filed the legal matter in Manhattan Supreme Court during the Eastern Conference finals this past May, citing a private paternity test allegedly confirming that NBA player Paul George as the father of her child, her lawyers told the New York Daily News that George had met the baby and paid Rajic’s medical bills.
Here’s what Judge Mathew Cooper writes:
“Even though it is all but certain that George is the father of the 5-month-old baby girl at the center of this case. He has gone to every length imaginable to avoid taking responsibility for his actions.
It is beyond comprehension how George could vouch for his skill at caring for the child while disparaging Rajic’s abilities when he has never even seen the child, asked to see the child, or offered to provide for the child’s needs.”
Here’s what Paul George’s attorney C. Anthony Mulrain said:”
“Paul is a good kid and he’s far away from being a deadbeat dad. What deadbeat dads do is run away from their responsibilities. George is trying to embrace them.”
