ATLANTA — A lawyer for a woman who says Michael Jordan fathered her teenage son is attacking the basketball hall of famer’s allegation that her ex-husband has been established as boy’s dad.

Pamela Smith last month sued Jordan and asked that he take a paternity test and pay child support. Jordan has said he’s not the father and filed motion to have her lawsuit dismissed.

A lawyer for Jordan said in a court filing last week that Smith’s divorce filings established her ex-husband as the teen’s father. The response also accused Smith of trying to get child support from more than one person.

Smith’s lawyer, Randy Kessler, says the ex-husband hasn’t paid child support and hasn’t been involved in the teen’s life.

A hearing is scheduled for Tuesday.
