Pamela Smith, mother of Grant Pierce Jay—the kid with a YouTube account who said he was Michael Jordan's illegitimate son—has dropped her paternity suit against Michael Jordan. According to TMZ, Smith dropped the case at her attorney's urging.

Pamela's attorney Randy Kessler tells TMZ ... she dropped the case on his advice that "dismissal at this time, without prejudice, is in her son’s best interests."

The suit was dropped without Jordan ever submitting to a DNA test, so I'll guess we'll never find out if he is indeed Grant's father. Grant did get a lot of Twitter followers out of the ordeal, though, so this wasn't a total waste of time.
