Earlier this year, NBA player Paul George was the latest sports star to have been found to have attempted to get his pregnant partner to have an abortion.

Reports surfaced last year that NBA player J.J. Redick and his then-pregnant ex-girlfriend, model Vanessa Lopez, had an odd legal contract that called for her to have an abortion. Reddick would then pay her to pretend to stay in a relationship.

paulgeorgeThem, according to multiple online reports, Paul George of the Pacers, attempted to get his girlfriend Daniela, a 7-month pregnant model, to have an abortion. Fortunately, she’s refused his efforts to get her to have an abortion of her baby girl.

Now, Daniela is filing a paternity lawsuit against him. From the London Daily Mail:

Daniela Rajic, 24, gave birth to daughter Olivia on May 1, and on Wednesday she filed a paternity suit against George in Manhattan Family Court.

George, 24, and Rajic were reportedly an item for a short time last summer.

Although Rajic now lives in New York, at the time the pair met she worked as a stripper at Tootsie’s Cabaret in Miami, reports the New York Post.

‘Paul and Daniela saw each other a number of times over the course of a few months in Miami last summer. She became pregnant, and their daughter was born on May 1.

‘She has already undertaken a paternity test, and there’s no question he is the father. The court is still expected to order an official DNA test,’ a source told the Post.



George, who is currently focused on trying to defeat NBA champions the Miami Heat, was forced to deny rumors back in February that he had offered Rajic $1million to abort the child.

‘If and when there is legal confirmation that I am the father, I will fully embrace my responsibilities,’ he said in a statement at that time.
