Indiana Pacers Paul George Face Custody Battle Lawsuit


Indiana Pacers forward Paul George is facing custody issues over a two-month-old girl he allegedly fathered with a former stripper. Daniela Rajic is seeking sole custody of the child, claiming the NBA player is too busy playing basketball to be a parent.

The two parties met in Miami where she was a dancer at Tootsie’s Cabaret. Rajic claims George is the father but a father is not listed on the child’s birth certificate.

The former stripper claims George is too busy to care for the child due to his professional obligations along with the fact that he lives in Indianapolis and she in Middle Village, Queens.

The case has moved from a state level to a federal court. Rajic is seeking an unspecified amount of child support along with a court-ordered paternity test.

George’s camp has said he is still waiting on legal confirmation that he is the father. If the child is his, he has said he will embrace his responsibilities.
