(CBS) In the midst of the season’s most important stretch, Pacers wing Paul George can’t prevent the distractions from swirling around him.

Daniela Rajic, a former stripper, has filed a paternity petition charging that George is the father of her 4-week-old daughter, according to the New York Daily News. Rajic reportedly met George in Florida last summer, when they started a relationship.

The Daily News reported that a representative for George said, “As Paul has said all along, if and when the legal process confirms that the baby is his, he will fully embrace his responsibilities as a father and provide emotional and financial support to the child.”

George has found himself in the center of plenty of off-court discussion this season. Private photos of him were leaked late in the season, and he was rumored to have been the victim of a catfish scheme.

The Pacers trail the Heat, 3-2, in the Eastern Conference Finals. Game 6 is Friday in Miami.
