Former 100 metres world record holder Asafa Powell appeared before the Family Court in Kingston on Thursday over child support payments.
It is understood that Powell’s former girlfriend, Amita Persaud-Webb, represented by attorney Michelle Thomas, filed papers seeking $25,000 a month for child maintenance.
Powell, however, asked the court to issue an order for a paternity test. He is being represented by attorney Annaliesa Lindsay in the matter.
He will return to court on October 9.
