Alexandra Davis requested a judge to drop the lawsuit, but she still wants Jones to take a DNA test to legally prove he’s her father.
“Alexandra has just decided that she wants to go ahead and proceed with parentage and DNA testing,” Davis’ lawyer Jay Gray, stated. Gray added, “She wants to remove any doubts that Jerry’s her father.”
If you recall, Alexandra filed the lawsuit back in March. She alleged that Jones reached a settlement with her mother, Cynthia Davis, back in 1998. The agreement was that “Jones would support them financially as long as they didn’t publicly identify him as her father,” AP reports.
Alexandra is asking that the court “to find she isn’t legally bound by an agreement between Jones and her mother if she attempted to establish legally that Jones is her father.”
Alexandra was raised in North Dallas and insists Jones met her mother Cynthia in the 1990’s at an American Airlines ticket counter in Little Rock, AR. While working for the airline company as a ticket agent, Davis was “pursued” by Jones amid being separated from her former husband.
Alexandra was born in 1996 and shortly after her birth, her mother and her estranged husband divorced. At the time, it was determined that Davis’ husband was not Alexandra’s father. “During the divorce proceedings, it was determined through genetic testing that Alexandra Davis was not the child of Cynthia Davis’ husband,” court documents state.
After receiving the results, Davis told Jones about Alexandra. But Jones stated he couldn’t have kids and denied being Alexandra’s father. If you recall, Jones has three kids with his wife Gene, and the two have been married since 1963.
Even though he denied fathering Alexandra, the team owner and Davis agreed to a settlement that required her to be paid $375,000. Alexandra was to obtain “certain monthly, annual and special funding” until she turned 21. She was also to receive payments when she turned 24, 26 and 28.
