A Mississippi woman is claiming that slain NFL player Steve McNair is the father of her 17-year-old daughter. Clover Lee, the woman in question, wants her daughter to be made an heir to McNair’s estate. In court documents filed on Friday(October 16th), Clover and her attorney, David Pitre of Gulfport, Miss., said in a statement:
“We expect that questions of paternity and heirship will soon be conclusively answered by DNA testing, which is currently being conducted.”
Clover Lee is asking the court for back child support and her daughter’s “rightful share” of the McNair estate. McNair’s estate is worth $19.6 million.
Steve McNair, who died tragically in July of this year, did not leave a will. As such, his widow Mechelle McNair is entitled to 40 percent of the net value of the estate. Mechelle’s sons Trenton, 6, and Tyler, 11, and Steve’s sons from previous relationships, Steve McNair Jr., 17, and Steven O’Brian Koran McNair, 15, are listed as heirs.
