Caddy Cops To Cumming On Cue

From the Associated Press :

Miami — A former caddie for LPGA golfer Jackie Gallagher-Smith is suing her, saying she seduced him in order to get pregnant.

Gary Robinson says Gallagher-Smith, who is married, used him as “an unwitting sperm donor.” He is suing for an unspecified sum, claiming fraud and intentional infliction of emotional distress. No hearing date has been set for the suit, filed in circuit court this week in West Palm Beach.

A message for Gallagher-Smith’s attorney, Edwin Belz, was not immediately returned.

Earlier, he told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel that the suit was, “an attempt at extortion.”

The suit says Gallagher-Smith, 37, gave birth last month, but Florida law says a child born into a marriage is deemed to be a result of the marriage. A DNA test can’t be forced and Robinson has no legal claim to the child, said Cathy Lively, Robinson’s attorney.

Robinson said he has been affected professionally. He is currently out of work as a caddie and is pursuing a career as a professional golfer.

“The likelihood that I will ever get another caddying job, especially in the LPGA, is very, very unlikely,” he said.

He’s probably right, though a lucrative new career as a gigolo beckons.
