A lounge singer is suing basketball hero Michael Jordan, alleging he backed out of a promise to pay her $5 million for keeping their sex trysts secret. Karla Knafel claims she had a three-year affair with Jordan and says the former Chicago Bulls legend offered to pay for her silence when she fell pregnant in 1991. According to the lawsuit, Jordan has already paid the singer $250,000 for "her mental pain and anguish arising from their romantic relationship." Last month, Jordan filed a lawsuit against Knafel, alleging he was the subject of a blackmail plot to extort money from him.
