Washington Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth is being sued by a pregnant woman who claims that he is the father of her unborn baby and that he is refusing to support her financially.
The New York Post reports that Silvia Mena, described as a “Brooklyn exotic dancer,” is nearly four months pregnant and claims in papers to be filed in Brooklyn Supreme Court that Haynesworth has refused to have any contact with her after learning she was pregnant in February.
“Haynesworth has abandoned the pregnant Silvia Mena,” the court papers say. “He has refused to provide any emotional or financial support of Silvia Mena or his unborn child.”
Her lawyer, Salvatore Strazzullo, told the Post, “This man is worth millions. She has had to apply for Medicaid to take care of her pregnancy.”
