ATLANTA (WXIA) -- An Atlanta woman filed a paternity suit on February 8 in Fulton County, claiming that basketball superstar Michael Jordan is the father of her 16-year-old son.

In the lawsuit, Pamela Smith claims the boy was born in June 1996.

Smith wants a paternity test to prove that her son is Jordan's. She also is asking the boy's last name be legally changed to Jordan.

She's asking for child support based upon Georgia support guidelines, along with expenses for medical, dental and hospital care not included in her own health insurance.

When asked about the lawsuit, Jordan's representative responded with a "no comment."
