Judge orders DNA testing in Dirk Nowitzki's petition to seek custody of child

Judge orders DNA testing in Dirk Nowitzki's petition to seek custody of child

From Staff Reports


A Dallas family court judge on Friday ordered pregnancy and DNA testing in the case involving Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki and his ex-girlfriend Cristal Taylor.

"We know the first one has to happen," said Associate Judge Randall Grubbs during a brief hearing in a state district court in Dallas County. "The other one may be moot."

Medical records show Taylor, who is now being held in a Missouri jail awaiting a parole-violation hearing, was pregnant, but the judge said he wanted his own test.

Grubbs then ordered the proceedings sealed, and attorneys said they could not comment.

In a petition filed last month, Nowitzki is seeking sole custody of Taylor's yet-to-be-born child if tests prove he is the father.

Taylor, 38, has said the Mavericks star, 31, is the father and that she seeks no monetary gain from their relationship.

Taylor was arrested May 6 at Nowitzki's Preston Hollow home. She was taken to Dallas County jail and later transferred to Beaumont to face a 2006 felony theft charge. In late June, she posted bail and was extradited to Missouri to face a 2001 probation violation on felony forgery and stealing.

Nowitzki's custody petition seeks "to establish the parent-child relationship between Petitioner and the child ... in the event that it is determined that Petitioner is the biological father of the child."

It continues: “Petitioner [Nowitzki] requests that genetic testing be ordered in accordance with chapter 160 of the Texas family code upon birth of the child.”

Later, it states: "In the event that it is determined that Petitioner is the biological father of the child, the best interest of the child ... will be served by the appointment of the Petitioner as sole managing conservator."

Taylor told the Dallas Morning News in late May that she was "very pregnant, about maybe four to 4 1/2 weeks." But a day later, told reporters that she was closer to seven weeks pregnant.

Staff writer Laurence Iliff contributed to this report.

Wait, isn't Dirk a German National? How can he proclaim Texas law without invoking immigration statutes to help him with his problem. Reason why I'm saying is that I had a good friend who entered the U.S. with a work visa and was later embroiled in a costody dispute for his child with his girlfriend and immigration was all over the guy. You know what? It's Dallas, who cares. I'm sure Cuban is doing everything to ensure his boy has the best legal team money can buy. AAHH, if pro basket ball were the same. Cubes would have a ring for each finger in his hands.
