Where are Cynthia Davis and Alex Davis Now?
In March 2022, Alexandra “Alex” Davis filed a lawsuit against Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. According to the documents submitted by Alex, Cynthia and he had apparently been in a relationship in the mid-1990s, leading to Alex’s conception. Cynthia and Jerry had reportedly reached a settlement according to which he would financially provide for the mother and daughter if they did not reveal the identity of Alex’s father. At the time of the alleged relationship, they both were married to other people. While Cynthia was estranged from her husband, Jerry had been married to Eugenia Jones for almost 30 years.
During Cynthia’s divorce proceedings, it was revealed that her husband was not Alex’s biological father. Hence, she approached Jerry and told him that he was a father. Apparently, he had told Cynthia that he could not have children; he asked her to keep Alex’s paternity under wraps and even provided her help for her divorce proceedings. Twenty-five years later, Alex, now a congressional aide, wanted to know if she could legally claim Jerry as her father without any consequences. In April 2022, she dropped the lawsuit and decided to go ahead with DNA and parentage testing.
