Albert Haynesworth claims his baby mama assaulted him and called him the N-word on numerous occasions and the ex-NFL superstar says he has witnesses to prove it.
The former NFL defensive tackle claims that his ex, former WNBA player Brittany Jackson, not only "called me unthinkable names, she has been extremely violent," and he took to his Twitter account and aired her out in a series of lengthy tweets entitled "The Ugly Truth About Brittany."
Within them, Haynesworth said that he has called police on Jackson upwards of 10 times over the course of their tumultuous two-year relationship.
"I have witnesses and bruises," he said, "but me for some reason still tried to protect her by not sending her to jail because I didn't want to ruin her so called career and name."
Take a look at Haynesworth's full explanation.
TMZ Sports reported that Jackson accused Haynesworth of skipping out on child support for their son, Ayden, Wednesday, prompting the former NFL star to return fire via Twitter. The website also obtained a police report stemming from a January incident in which Haynesworth accused Jackson of kicking him in the groin twice following an argument. However, Haynesworth never filed charges.
Here's a look at the two together during a happier time back in December 2015.
Haynesworth notoriously signed a $100 million contract with the NFL's Washington franchise in 2009, but only played two seasons with the team before ending his NFL career in 2011. NFL.com referred to that contract and Haynesworth as being "the gold standard of horrific free-agent signings."
