Washington Redskins defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth is being sued for supposedly abandoning Silvia Mena, a stripper from Brooklyn whom he allegedly impregnated. Mena claims that Haynesworth dumped her and refused to talk to her after he learned that she was pregnant in February.
To say I’m surprised would be a lie. Haynesworth has already showed us his selfish, “all about me” attitude on the football field this year by skipping out on his team’s OTAs. If Haynesworth can’t manage to be there for his teammates, why would we expect him to be there for his pregnant ex-girlfriend?
Now I understand that the questions will circulate whether it’s actually his child and whether he said he’d support her as well as other things. But it’s not like Haynesworth is hurting for money — he just signed a $100 million contract in 2009. Are you really telling me that he can’t afford to take an ex-girlfriend to the doctor? Something just isn’t right about this story.
If Mena wins her lawsuit against Haynesworth, he could potentially owe her $10 million. Wouldn’t it just have been smarter to take the woman to the doctor and get a paternity test when the child is born? If it’s not his, he has no financial obligation. If it is, then maybe they could have worked out a better deal. I guess we are going to have to wait for all the details to unfold but Haynesworth looks like he might be getting screwed on this one.
