Paul George is in some hot water after reportedly getting a Miami stripper named Daniela pregnant and then offering to pay her $1 million to terminate the pregnancy.
Rumors circulating online said the Indiana Pacers star had an affair with a stripper named Daniela who used to work at a Miami gentlemen’s club called Tootsies. The news, if true, is even more devastating to Paul George given that he’s been in a relationship with Callie Rivers, daughter of Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers.
Reports say that Daniela decided against the idea of terminating and is now happy and healthy carrying a baby girl
Though nothing has been confirmed, users online found some clues to the affair between Paul George and Daniela. It appears the two may have met at yacht party over the summer, when Instagram user @gogetta posted a photo of the party that included both George and Daniela. @_srbijanka.

If it’s true, then it appears Paul George tried to exchange a $1 million payoff for 18 years of child support. Not that he can’t afford it, however. The 24-year-old forward signed a contract extension before the year that guarantees him between $80 million and $90 million, and could be worth more if he reaches an escalator clause.
The contract also came with the praise of Pacers team brass.
“I think he’s going to be one of the top players in the league. Right now, he’s in the top 15 or 20 players in the league. Do we think he can be a first-teamer? We do, and if he is, then we both benefit from that,” said team president Larry Bird after the contract was finalized.
There is still no confirmation that Paul George got the stripper named Daniela pregnant, and certainly nothing to prove that he offered her $1 million to abort, but whether true or not the news is likely an unwelcome distraction for the 6-foot-7 forward and his team. George and the Pacers own the best record in the Eastern Conference and are among a small group with realistic hopes at an NBA title this season.
