Cowboys owner Jerry Jones ‘already paid nearly $ 3 million to the woman, 25, who sued him for paternity’

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has already paid nearly $ 3 million to the woman who filed a paternity suit against him on March 3, including a $ 70,000 Range Rover for her $ 33,000 ‘Sweet 16’ party nine years ago, according to a lawyer in Arkansas who says he facilitated the transactions.

Jones’ alleged payments to the plaintiff, 25-year-old Alexandra Davis, also included full tuition at Southern Methodist University, Little Rock attorney Don Jack told ESPN on Thursday.

“On several occasions I have made payments on behalf of Mr. Jones to Cindy and Alex Davis,” Jack said in a statement referring to the plaintiff and her mother, Cynthia Davis Spencer.

Jones, a 79-year-old married father of three, has not confirmed or denied that he is Davis’ father. Davis’ 16th birthday party, however, was shown in the reality TV show ‘Big Rich Texas’, which featured footage of her receiving a new, white Range Rover.

Jones’ attorneys accused Davis of extortion while she moved to have her lawsuit dismissed in a case earlier this week.

Davis claimed in her lawsuit that when she was 1, Jones agreed to pay her mother $ 375,000 in exchange for their silence about Davis’ lineage. The case alleges that Jones organized two trust funds for Davis in Arkansas, where Davis Spencer lived and worked for American Airlines at the time. Jones and Spencer Davis reportedly had an affair in the mid-1990s.

Jack, a longtime friend of Jones’, confirmed that he reached an agreement on behalf of the billionaire in 1995 to pay Spencer Davis $ 375,000, adding that the monthly child support ‘eventually amounted to over $ 2 million.’

In the case on March 3, Davis asked the Dallas County court to rule that Jones’ agreement with her mother could not be enforced in Texas and to confirm that he is, in fact, her father. Her lawyer, Andrew A. Bergman, has maintained that Davis is not seeking money but instead wants to be recognized as his daughter after being ignored for years.

However, Jack claims that Davis and her mother sought $ 20 million from Jones in a letter she shared with the Arkansas attorney at a steakhouse in Dallas ‘three or four’ years ago.

“At that meeting, Alex read to me a personal letter she had written to Jerry Jones, in which she expressed her dissatisfaction with what she had received and sought $ 20 million,” Jack told ESPN. ‘She said that if this amount was paid, she would not bother Mr. Jones again and would keep their relationship confidential. ‘

The letter has not been reviewed or otherwise confirmed by ESPN.

“Let’s see the letter,” Bergman told ESPN on Thursday. ‘And let’s see the evidence that more money was paid in addition to those agreements. And I want to ask why? Does Jerry say money is a substitute for being a father? Do the millions make him a good father, and do they turn my client into a blackmailer? Do not forget that the money was conditional on her being silent. ‘

Jones 'application from Monday states that he was only sued after rejecting Davis' request to 'enter into an agreement' to 'assure that he would not be publicly or privately identified' as her father.

Jones spokesman Jim Wilkinson declined to comment when asked by ESPN if the Cowboys owner is Davis’ father. Both Jack and Wilkinson also declined to release a copy of the deal, which they say has resulted in $ 1.3 million in payments to Davis and her mother over the past 25 years, and calls for future payments when she turns 26 and 28. .

Davis, who works as an aide to US Congressman Ronny Jackson (Republican-Texas), has declined to comment publicly on the matter.

Jack claims that Davis and Spencer Davis would occasionally ask for more money from Jones, which is why the Cowboys owner exceeded the amount he agreed to pay in the trust agreement by nearly $ 1 million.

These profits included Davis’ $ 33,000 ‘Sweet 16’ party, which aired on ‘Big Rich Texas’ as well as the Range Rover, and nearly $ 50,000 on a few vacations.

‘Facts clearly show that millions of dollars have been paid,’ said Wilkinson, ‘and on top of that, a $ 20 million attempt was made. I think it speaks for itself in terms of motives. ‘

Wilkinson also accused Bergman of demanding money from Davis to settle the case.

“If you want this to just disappear, it’s going to cost you Zeke or Dak money,” Bergman reportedly told Jones’ attorney Levi A. McCathern, Wilkinson told ESPN.

‘Zeke and Dak’ refers to the Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott and quarterback Dak Prescott, who are the team’s two highest paid players.

“There was never a discussion about a non-monetary resolution,” Wilkinson told ESPN. ‘Money was always part of the deal.’

Bergman denied the claim to ESPN.

“It’s completely false – and they know it – that I’ve ever demanded money on Alex’s behalf,” Bergman said. ‘They said,’ What does she want? ‘ And I said she would establish parenting and Jerry can do it in collaboration or not.

“Levi said Jerry would not do it because of Mama Gene,” Bergman continued, referring to Jones’ wife of 59 years, Eugenia. “Levi said Jerry said Alex will never be part of our family in a picture when we raise money for the Salvation Army. That’s the truth.”

Wilkinson denied that McCathern ever said that to Bergman.

“Now they’ve changed their story again,” Wilkinson said. “First of all, it was not about money. Now it’s about money. And now they stand on three sides of a two-sided case. They are everywhere on the map here. Choose a story and keep going. This is clownish. ‘
