Ex-wife now taking shots, legal action vs. Haynesworth
They keep piling on Albert Haynesworth.
Yes, they sure do. But we’ve found even more reasons for Haynesworth to show up at training camp for the Washington Redskins in a little more than a month. There is someone else coming after him for money – his ex-wife Stephanie wants what should legally be hers.
Unable to meet his obligations on the field for the Redskins – Haynesworth skipped mandatory minicamp earlier this month – he allegedly hasn’t met his obligations off the field either. This comes as no surprise, not with a Tennessee bank suing Haynesworth for defaulting on a $2.38 million loan and a New York stripper coming after him for million after he allegedly got her pregnant and promised to take care of her. Oh yeah, then there is the Tennessee man suing Haynesworth for a wreck he alleges Haynesworth caused in his Ferrari that left him partially paralyzed. Corey Edmonson is going after Haynesworth for multiple millions of dollars.
Haynesworth’s divorce was finalized in January, according to the Associated Press, and Stephanie Haynesworth did not receive alimony or a pay off in the settlement. Per the report, her attorney filed a petition on Monday to change the outcome as well as the “parenting plan” for their two kids.
“He thinks he's above everything,” Stephanie Haynesworth told the AP. “He feels like he's entitled. He's narcissistic. It's very frustrating to go to someone constantly and ask them repetitively to do the things they're already supposed to be doing.”
If Haynesworth, who has been paid $32 million by the Redskins in the last 16 months or so, had simply fulfilled his duties as a football player, he wouldn’t have quite the microscope on him. But his failure to live up to that contract has made him a marked man and with the mounting off-field distractions, he’s not going to be attractive for any other team. Remember, this is the player who stomped on Andre Gurode’s face. Trouble just seems to have a way of following Haynesworth.
You have to wonder if a man with pockets as deep as Daniel Snyder is capable of buyer’s remorse. We’re betting he is. In this instance.
