World News: Porn Star's 'Love Child With Tiger Woods'

A porn star who insists she had an affair with disgraced golfer Tiger Woods has reportedly claimed he is the father of her nine-year-old son.

Married Woods, set to play in the US Open starting this week, only returned to competition in April after leaving the sport amid numerous revelations of infidelity.

Adult film actress Devon James, 29, has reportedly said she and the world-famous sportsman had a secret love child - before Woods wed Swedish model Elin Nordegren.

RadarOnline said the porn star's son Austin T James - whose middle initial is allegedly a tribute to the golfer - was born in 2001.

Despite James' claims, Woods has not taken or been asked to undergo a paternity test, the website added.

However, TMZ.com now reports that a DNA test in 2002 indicates the father is probably another man.

The porn star "was 19 at the time, and she was attending a Christian school programme" when she first met Woods, the New York Daily News quoted an unnamed source as saying.

"They immediately started a relationship. She became pregnant, but she decided not to tell Tiger," the source continued.

Despite the lack of a DNA test, the source said James "knows he is the father of her son because he is the only African-American man she dated at that time".

James also alleged in March that the golfer paid her and another woman $2,000 (1,359) each for a "two-girl party" in 2006.

The porn star then showed Woods pictures of her child and told him he was the father, according to the source.

"(Woods) didn't want to meet the boy, but he did send her gifts for the child," the source added.

But James' mother Sandra Brinling has dismissed the love child claims, reportedly saying her daughter is a "pathological liar".

Woods walked away from golf after a car crash near his Florida home in November, 2009, which spurred a bevy of women - including James - to declare he had slept with them.

Alleged mistress Theresa Rogers alleged in December that she had Woods' baby in 2004 and negotiated a multimillion-dollar settlement to keep it secret.
