Alexandra Davis has asked a judge to drop the case, 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 do blood and DNA testing,” Davis’ attorney, Jay Gray, said. Gray added, “She wanted to clear all doubts that Jerry was her father.”
If you recall, Alexandra filed the lawsuit in March. She alleges that Jones reached an agreement with her mother, Cynthia Davis, in 1998. The agreement was “Jones will support them financially as long as they do not publicly identify him as her father”. AP’s report.
Alexandra is asking the court to “find her not legally bound by an agreement between Jones and her mother if she tries to legally establish that Jones is her father.”
Alexandra grew up in North Dallas and claims Jones met her mother Cynthia in the 1990s at an American Airlines ticketing counter in Little Rock, AR. While working for the airline company as a ticket salesman, Davis was “pursued” by Jones while she was separating from her ex-husband.
Alexandra was born in 1996 and not long after giving 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 process, it was determined through genetic testing that Alexandra Davis was not the child of her husband Cynthia Davis,” the court documents read.
After receiving the results, Davis told Jones about Alexandra. But Jones says he can’t have children and denies being a father to Alexandra. If you recall, Jones had three children with his wife Gene, and the two have been married since 1963.
Although he denied being Alexandra’s father, the team owner and Davis agreed to a settlement that required her to pay $375,000. Alexandra must receive “some monthly, yearly and special grants” until she turns 21. She will also receive payments when she turns 24, 26 and 28.
