DNA test clears Tiger

Florida - Shamed golfer Tiger Woods can rest easy after learning a paternity suit filed against him by porn star Devon James has no merit.

A DNA test conducted in 2002 has already proved another man is the father of her nine-year-old son.

According to the AceShowbiz website, James filed legal documents in Manatee County, Florida earlier this month, asking a judge to determine the paternity of her son, Austin. The adult star, real name Melinda Brinling, alleged Woods had fathered her child after a reported fling in 2001.

She went public with the sensational claims on US news show "Extra", telling the programme that she kept her pregnancy and the birth of her son a secret from Woods, but decided to reveal all about the sportsman's son following his 2009 cheating scandal.

James insists Woods knew all about young Austin, because she told him the news after they reconnected when his wife Elin Nordegren was expecting her first child with the golf star.

She wanted to force Woods to submit to DNA testing as part of the paternity suit, but the TMZ website has obtained documents proving a man named Pele Watkins is 99.99 percent the biological father of Austin.

James has previously denied knowing about the existence of the 2002 test.

    The thought that Tiger had unprotected sex with a porn star who doesn't even really know who the father of the child is, is quite horrifying.

    A publicity stunt by the porn star, It's quite shameful how they are still attacking this guy after he has owned up and getting help for his problem, he is still just a human being with feelings after all.
