Cowboys owner Jerry Jones fielded a question Monday about the paternity lawsuit, tying him to a 25-year-old woman named Alexandria Davis. When asked about Davis claiming that the 79-year-old businessman is her biological father, Jones response was short.

“That is personal,” Jones said. “That is personal,” via the Dallas Morning News' David Moore.

Davis grew up in the North Texas area; filing a suit that alleges her birth was as a result of a relationship Jerry Jones had with her mother, Cynthia, in the mid-90s. Per documents filed to the court. Davis' mother reached a settlement with Dallas' owner that he would support them financially as long as they didn't publicly identify him as her father. It's claimed that Davis was an infant when this agreement was reached.

A hearing for the case is scheduled to take place on March 31. Alexandra Davis' lawyers continue to assert that the suit is not motivated by money. But rather, not being prohibited from stating who her real father is.

Cynthia Davis' ex-husband reportedly did not have to pay child support after their divorce; because testing determined he was not the father.
