Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is being sued by a 25-year-old woman claiming to be his biological daughter.
Alexandra Davis, 25, filed a lawsuit against Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones in Dallas County, claiming that he and her mother had a relationship in the 1990s.
In the suit, Davis alleges that Jones paid her mother hundreds of thousands of dollars to not publicly reveal that the Cowboys owner was her father.
The story was first reported by the Dallas Morning News.

Jones denied he was Davis’ biological father in settlement documents, per ESPN. However, the lawsuit states that Jones paid Davis’ mother $375,000 “in exchange for confidentiality” and that a friend and Arkansas lawyer set up two trusts in the name of the mother and child, according to a copy of the lawsuit obtained by ESPN.
Davis is seeking a court to find that she is no longer legally bound to the agreement if she were to try and legally establish that Jones is indeed her father.
Additionally, Davis wants the court to deem those settlement agreements are “unenforceable” in the state of Texas.
The court temporarily sealed the lawsuit on Wednesday, March 9. A hearing is scheduled for March 31.
