Former Chicago Bulls basketball legend Michael Jordan faces a paternity suit from a woman who claims her 16-year-old son is his.

Chicago TV station NBC 5 has confirmed that the lawsuit was filed in Fulton County, Ga. by Pamela Smith, who claims she became pregnant after an affair with Jordan in 1995. Niether Smith nore representatives of Micheal Jordan would comment on the suit.

The boy, Grant Pierce Jay Jordan Reynolds, also claims in a YouTube video posted in December that he is Jordan's son. He says he's met Jordan before and wants him to be in his life more.

Smith seeks to retain full custody in the lawsuit, and is pursuing child support, medical expenses and the right to have the boy's legal last name changed to Jordan.

Jordan was married to his wife, Juanita, at the time of the alleged tryst.
