*NBA All-Star Paul George has put to rest his salacious paternity battle with Daniela Rajic over their 7-month-old daughter, Olivia.
The injured 24-year-old Indiana Pacers player — who earns about $18 million a year — and ex-stripper Rajic on Tuesday reached a “joint parenting agreement” and child-support settlement over Olivia, Page Six is reporting.
George’s attorney Harriet Newman Cohen told the column, “They have reached a settlement with full joint custody and a financial package. They will be raising their daughter together. Paul George had always intended to do the right thing, and he is thrilled to have a daughter. The settlement is generous, the child is going to have a wonderful life, and both parents will be equally involved in bringing her up.”
Rajic’s lawyer Raoul Felder wouldn’t reveal details of the confidential settlement, but added, “If this was baseball, they would say he stepped up to the plate.”
He said that Rajic, who had been living with her family in Queens, would be moving to a new home with Olivia in the New York area that will allow George to make regular visits.
George, who signed a contract extension with the Pacers last year that could be worth more than $90 million, broke his leg in horrific fashion during a Team USA exhibition game in August. But sources said it allowed him to spend time with Olivia.
Last month he posted the above Instagram picture of him kissing her, with the caption, “In love and blessed!!! My baby girl!”
George and Rajic, who met while she was working as a dancer at Tootsie’s Cabaret in Miami in 2013, are now on good terms.
They said in a joint statement Tuesday night, “We are both very grateful for the opportunity to be joint parents to our beautiful daughter Olivia. While we have our separate lives, we are committed to providing her with all the support, nurturing and love she deserves.”
