Earlier this month, a 25-year-old woman named Alexandra Davis sued Jerry Jones, alleging that the Dallas Cowboys owner paid her mother hundreds of thousands of dollars in 1996 to hide that he was the girl's biological father.
On Monday, Jones asked a judge to dismiss the paternity lawsuit filed by Davis. His lawyer claims that Davis is trying to extort Jones for money.
Two days later, Davis' lawyers, Andrew A. Bergman and Jay K. Gray, fired back at Jones. They said Jones "maliciously accused his own daughter of extortion."
"Even more distasteful is that Mr. Jones has stooped so low as to attempt to tie Alexandra's lawsuit into his other daughter's, Charlotte Jones, divorce to have it lost among his many scandals," they said in a statement, via ESPN's Don Van Natta Jr.
Additionally, they said Jones has "consequently traumatized" Davis.
"After years of anguish, embarrassment, feelings of abandonment, and now faced with a potentially fatal illness to her mother, Alexandra wants to be legally acknowledged," Bergman and Gray wrote. "She merely wants to have her father listed on her birth certificate and be free from hiding who she is."
Jones' lawyers have not yet responded to that claim.
