(Jamaica Observer) Olympian Asafa Powell has requested a paternity test for his daughter.

This development comes after he was hauled before the courts this morning, on a request from his ex Amita Persaud Webb that he pay a monthly sum of $40,000 in maintenance towards the child.

According to a well placed OBSERVER ONLINE source, Powell and Persaud Webb had an informal arrangement where Powell should have been paying $25,000 in maintenance each month, but the former sprinting sensation did not honour that commitment.

The source said as a result, Persaud Webb decided to get a formal agreement through the courts for $40,000, but Powell threw a spoke in the wheel when he disputed paternity.

Subsequently, the arrangement of $25,000 remains in place until the paternity dispute is settled.

Powell has two other children, both boys, and Persaud Webb recently gave birth to a baby girl.
