Arian Foster is being sued by a pregnant woman who claims that the NFL star impregnated her and then got his brother to pressure her into having an abortion.
TMZ reported that they have the court documents regarding the woman’s case against Foster. The woman in question is Brittany Norwood, a 20-year-old University of Houston student, and she is currently 17 weeks pregnant with the Houston Texans running back’s child.
The documents were filed in Texas, and they also allege that after she informed the married Foster of her pregnancy he “constantly harassed [her] to get an abortion for the child.”
They then added that Arian “used family members to additionally harass [her] to get an abortion.” It’s believed that Foster’s brother was the one who tried to talk her into the decision.
Brittany, whose child is due in June, claims in her lawsuit that Arian’s brother approached her and explained, “If you love [Arian] so much you would get an abortion.”
Brittany also told KHOU 11 News in Houston, “He’s like, ‘You can’t have this, you can’t have this kid, like, we cannot bring a child into this, like, think about my kids.'”
“I truly fell in love with this person,” she admitted, before revealing that their relationship began in the summer of 2013, and that they were first intimate at Hotel ZaZa. This is where Foster was staying during training camp.
One of the text messages that Foster sent to Brittany read, “You just can’t bring a life into this world under these circumstances. It’s not fair to anyone. It’s not just about you.”
Brittany continued, “I’m 20, I’m scared, I’m another single mom,” before she sent the following message to Foster, “I just want you to love and want the exact same life for my son that I do.”
She has already gained a DNA test that shows there’s a 99.9% probability that Foster is the father of her child.
Brittany has filed the lawsuit because she was Arian to provide her with child support, and she wants to place a restraining order against him so that he stops trying to force her into an abortion.
She’s also asking Foster to provide her with compensation because of the emotional distress that she has gone through.
Brittany’s attorney, Douglas York, remarked, “We want his conduct to stop. We want him to communicate effectively and we want the harassment to end.” Foster is yet to comment on the matter.
