Michael Jordan‘s wedding to model fiancee Yvette Prieto is set for April 27, according to reports, despite the lawsuit he's facing from Pamela Smith.

The retired NBA star is being sued by Smith, 48, who says she got pregnant after sleeping with him in 1995 when he was still married to Juanita Vanoy.

The alleged indiscretion - if it even took place - hasn’t hindered his plans to wed his Cuban-American bride, with their nuptials now just weeks away.

A lavish ceremony is reportedly planned at Jordan’s mansion on Jupiter island, Fla. His neighbor and friend Tiger Woods is expected to attend.

The mother of Michael Jordan's alleged love child never planned to file a paternity suit against the NBA legend, but the child himself reportedly insisted.

According to TMZ, Pamela Smith had no desire to sue Jordan until her son pleaded with her to make his (alleged) dad admit paternity and pay support.

Pamela Smith is suing Michael for just that, paternity and child support, claiming MJ got her pregnant while he was still married to Juanita Vanoy.

Sources close to Smith, who says Jordan knocked her up in 1995, has always had a good relationship with Michael and doesn't need the money.

NBA legend Michael Jordan has been sued by a woman, Pamela Smith, who claims he fathered her 16-year-old son. She wants a paternity test.

Smith claims she got pregnant after having sex with MJ in 1995 and gave birth to Grant Pierce Jay Jordan Reynolds, a.k.a. Taj Jordan, in 1996. 

Michael Jordan was married to Juanita Vanoy, with whom he has three kids, at the time; MJ and Juanita are divorced, and he is engaged to Yvette Prieto.

Pamela wants a paternity test to prove Jordan's the dad, plus full custody and child support, and for His Airness to pay the teenager's medical expenses.

Court documents do not describe the relationship between Smith and Jordan, but the full court press is clearly on, as Taj also posted this video in December:

In 2008, Lisa Miceli made similar claims against Jordan, however DNA tests proved he was NOT the father and he ended up counter-suing pretty aggressively.

Michael Jordan's new mansion is not small. Or cheap. Or non-awesome.

The NBA legend is putting the finishing touches on a $12.4 million mansion in Jupiter, Fla., inside an exclusive gold community called the Jack Nicklaus’ Bear Club.

Tiger Woods, who also lives in Jupiter, has been known to frequent the facility. It's not the same golf club that recently banned Michael Jordan over his attire.

Those familiar with MJ won't be surprised to learn that the house has a custom-built cigar room / theater, equipped with a unique filter system for the cigar aficionado.

At 28,000 SF, it's double the size of Elin Nordegren's mansion. Baller.

Michael Jordan may have popularized baggy shorts in the NBA, but he was reportedly banned from an exclusive Miami Beach golf club for not putting them on.

His Airness refused to change out of his cargo pants and got the boot. Seriously.

The world is well aware of the fuel that burned inside Michael Jordan on the basketball court. But what about the passion within his teenage heart?

Somehow, a 1980 letter from the NBA legend to high school girlfriend, Laquette Robinson, was obtained and sold at auction, then leaked online.

The text of the letter is rather uninteresting, but the love note was a sensation in large part because it showed a side of Jordan we hadn't seen.

However, the woman-in-question says she has no idea how the letter ever went to auction, and may take legal action against those responsible.

Why? Because she suspects a family member took the letter and sold it to the auction house, and she would never try to capitalize off of MJ.

"It was mine, it was private," Robinson told CNN, saying it was taken "without my knowledge, without my permission, and it really upsets me."

Again, the letter itself is innocuous. But if Laquetta is serious that it was stolen from her and sold off, somebody could be in for a fat lawsuit.

As for how she can prove she wasn't behind the leak? She's got a bunch of other ones like this, she says. Why sell just one for a few grand?
