Thumbnail image for cristal-taylor.jpgAccording to papers filed last week, Dallas Mavericks' star Dirk Nowitzki is seeking sole custody of his ex-girlfriend's unborn baby if he is proven to be the father.

The recently incarcerated Cristal Taylor was served with the document, which identifies the parties as "D.N." and "C.T." Taylor was jailed on a theft of services charge on May 6, which ignited a flurry of speculation as to the nature of her relationship with Nowitzki.
The Dallas Morning News was granted access to Taylor's medical records, which revealed a positive pregnancy test upon being booked.

Nowitzki has returned to his native Germany since the basketball season ended and has been mostly mum on the situation, acknowledging only that he's going through a difficult time in his personal life.

Multiple Dallas Mavericks sources said Thursday that people within the organization cautioned Dirk Nowitzki about his relationship with a woman who was arrested at the star forward's home Wednesday morning.

"It's pretty obvious that I'm going through a tough time in my personal life right now," Nowitzki, 30, said after practice Thursday. "Like I always have, I want to kind of keep my private life private.

"I really am not at the stage where I can talk about it yet and feel comfortable talking about it. I'm more than happy to answer basketball questions, but I think at this point, I just can't talk about it."

Taylor, 37, remained jailed Thursday night in Dallas County jail with bail set at $20,000 on the theft of services charge and no bail allowed on the probation violation. She could face an extradition hearing in the coming days.

Two local TV stations, KTVT (Channel 11) and WFAA (Channel 8), cited unidentified sources in reporting Thursday that Taylor had been engaged to Nowitzki and is pregnant with his child. Sources who spoke to The News did not, or could not, confirm her pregnancy.
