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.
Last year, the sprinter tied the knot with Canadian model, Alyshia Miller, with whom he shares a son, Amieke.
