A U-S court has ruled that cricket star Imran Khan is the father of a five year child.
The ruling came from a Los Angeles court after ex-girlfriend Sita White filed a lawsuit claiming Khan's paternity over her daughter Tyrian-Jade.
White says Khan should apologise to the Pakistani people for misleading them during his election campaign that he had no children before he married Jemima Goldsmith.
A Los Angeles court on Wednesday said Imran Khan wasn't playing cricket and added it was time he owned up to being the father of Tyrian-Jade White.
The former Pakistani cricket star has denied fathering the five-year-old American girl with British heiress Sita White who now lives in L-A.
But the court went with the daughter of Lord "Gordy" White - and gave Khan the official stamp of father.
The ruling came after Khan failed to respond to a paternity suit and a request to take a bloodtest.
"Yes, I'm just very happy that this judgement was entered. This is an important day for my child and I think that Mr Khan should make an apology to the people in Pakistan for running his campaign on a lie. I think it's time for him to take responsibility for his child and I'm just extremely happy and I'm glad I have my lawyers working for me."

White's high-profile attorney, Gloria Allred, was also at the court.
She condemned Khan for putting political gain before fatherhood.
"Power money and high office should always be less important than a child's emotional and financial wellbeing. It's not cricket for a father to deny his child in order to gain political office. And we're happy that this case became an issue in his campaign to become prime minister and we think that the Pakistani people sent him an important message when they refused to elect him prime minister of Pakistan while the issue of paternity remained unresolved. The judgement of the court entered today clearly establishes Imran Khan as Tyrian's father. We hope that one day he'll open up his heart to his little girl and give her the love respect and support that every daughter deserves to receive from her parent. And this is a copy of the judgement that the court signed, the judgement of paternity."

In 1995, Imran Khan had a glamorous wedding to billionaire financier Jimmy Goldsmith's daughter Jemima in London.
Khan later made an unsuccessful attempt to enter Pakistan's political scene - some believe his bid was bankrolled by Goldsmith.
To add a twist to the story Sita White once stepped out with Dodi Fayed who's now linked with Britain's Princess Diana.
However she said that was all in the past now.
"I'd prefer not to comment on that right now."

At least Tyrian-Jade has a father now, but it is unlikely that Imran Khan will ever recognise her.
