Steven Soderbergh Facing Paternity Suit
An Australian woman who claims he fathered her baby is suing him for child support
Steven Soderbergh is being sued for child support by an Australian woman who claims the filmmaker fathered her baby daughter.
According to the suit filed Wednesday in NYC, Frances Lawrencina Anderson says Soderbergh (who has been wed to TV personality/novelist Jules Asner since 2003) helped pay medical expenses during Anderson's pregnancy.
Documents, obtained by the Associated Press, also state that a DNA test proved he was the father of the girl, who was born in August.
Anderson lives in Sydney, where Soderbergh directed his play "Tot Mom"(which ran from December 2009 to February 2010).
Soderbergh's lawyer declined to comment.
