Offensive linemen in the NFL tend to be unsung heroes, buying quarterbacks time in the pocket and creating daylight for rushers without even hardcore football fans knowing their names.
Well, now, people are getting to know Donald Penn's name...but for all the wrong reasons.
TMZ Sports, as spotted on BlackSportsOnline, is reporting that the Oakland Raiders offensive lineman allegedly got a former Bad Girls Club cast member, Camilla Poindexter, pregnant, despite being married with three kids. This past March, Poindexter had a daughter and Penn's wife, Dominique Penn, believes the child is his.
Needless to say, she's irate.
"My husband cheated on me with this hood rat," Dominique posted under the Raiders lineman's Instagram account, as reported by TMZ. "She knew he was married from jump!! He knew that he was married! They did this to my family! You don't get brownie points for f**king a married man for a check thinking he was gonna leave his wife!"
She added, "He has 4 kids now (paternity test pending) to worry about."
Despite the mess that her husband has allegedly gotten himself into — dragging her into it in the process — Dominique vows to stand by her man.
"I uplifted him and I told him as his friend, we're gonna get through this!!!" she said, as reported by TMZ. "As a result to all you h**s out there, never think for one second a man will never come crawling back to his wife. In most cases like mine, THE WIFE ALWAYS WINS."
What a mess.
Sources close to Poindexter say her having a child with Penn wasn't a money-grabbing attempt, despite the 33-year-old lineman having made $47 million during his NFL career.
