Report: Nerlens Noel and baby momma in legal pissing match


Some people don’t think TMZ is actually journalism. I on the other hand, enjoy reading daily articles about how my favorite athletes and rappers are neglectful fathers and husbands (at least according to these reports) outside of their respective elements.

It’s been a while since DeSean Jackson‘s antics were Philadelphia’s problem, and I had to pass along a TMZ report of Jackson throwing gang signs with hip-hop mogul “Nipsey Hussle”, so we were due for a juicy TMZ story linking a Philadelphia athlete to off the field issues.

Enter, as they dubbed him “76ers star”, Nerlens Noel.

It’s a nasty fight between Nerlens and a woman named Jamie — who claims the 20-year-old signed an affidavit in May 2013 (one week after the child was born) admitting he is the father.  She claims the two remained close after the pregnancy.
  
In legal docs, obtained by TMZ Sports, Jamie claims Nerlens agreed to pay $10k per month in child support — and did for 3 months — but suddenly cut her off and hasn’t paid a dime since. 

Jamie filed a lawsuit against Nerlens hoping the judge would force him to pay up — but he fired back with legal docs of his own claiming he’s not convinced he’s the real father. 

In fact, in Noel’s legal docs he writes, “[He] does not have sufficient knowledge of information to know whether [Jamie] engaged in sexual relations with other men during the times pertinent to this case.”

Next comes the big plot-twist. You’ll be shocked by this one.

Jamie denies that claim.

The end result of this story is that Noel has requested that a DNA test is performed prior to him making any other payments, and the former couple will be back in court within the next few weeks.

So I guess that when the Sixers have Noel hanging out with Andrew Wiggins, he isn’t giving him tips about how to be a father.
