*Porn star Devon James filed legal papers in Florida Thursday hoping to prove that Tiger Woods is the father of her 9-year-old son.
James, whose real name is Melinda Janette, asked a judge to “establish paternity” after TMZ.com reported Thursday that a 2001 DNA test done on her son proved another man was his father.
The TMZ account is “false,” a source close to the 29-year-old told the New York Daily News. “The DNA test done in 2001 was on a man who is a white guy, a complete white guy. His name is Matt. The test showed he is not the father, and Tiger has never taken a DNA test.”
There was no comment from Woods, who is competing at Pebble Beach, Calif., in the U.S. Open.
James claims she was 19 and working on a Christian charity project in Hawaii when she hooked up with Woods. “She became pregnant, but she decided not to tell Tiger,” the source said.
James claims she told Woods years later about their love child, Austin, when she was working as an escort and allegedly hooked up with him again for a “dirty” threesome, which earned her and the other gal $2,000 a piece.
“She and Tiger both recognized each other,” the source said. Woods “was huge by then; he was married. Devon was afraid he would take her son away.”
James made no mention of Austin in March when she joined dozens of women who claimed to have slept with Tiger. James’ mother, Sandra Brinling, later called her daughter a “pathological liar” who was trying to squeeze Woods for money.
