Cardinal Sin? NFL Star Hit with Paternity Suit!

10/26/2007 9:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A former Raiderette cheerleader says Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, Jr. is the father of her unborn child -- and she's filed suit!

According to the court documents obtained by TMZ, Angela Nazario claims she and Fitzgerald had a sexual relationship which resulted in Nazario's pregnancy. She says she is due in January. While Fitzgerald cops to hooking up with Nazario, he is asking that a DNA paternity test be taken after the child is born. Eddie Murphy, is that you?

Nazario is seeking child support from Fitzgerald, which he says he'll provide, if he's determined to be the father. A source close to Nazario says he has asked her to "hide" out in a small Arizona town, and asked her to have an abortion. Fitzgerald also allegedly tried to bribe her with offers of houses and cars, and when she declined, he told her "I don't need this all over the news like Matt Leinart." Oops.

Calls to Fitzgerald's attorney were not immediately returned.

Wonder who is scamming who on this. I believe there is a prohibition concerning the NFL's cheerleaders that they are not allowed to date the team's players. Kind of like the former Miss Winstons on the NASCAR circuit.
I feel he's right demanding a DNA test. However, if it is found that he's the father then the right thing to do is to settle and offer support to the child. But if he's not then he should sue her for slander.
Some comments are right, there are too many women ready to have sex with the famous and rich so they can reap the rewards. It's a sad comment on the current situation.

Raiders and the Cardinals at it again. Anyway, if you play someday you're gonna pay. She must've had her back field in motion. And he was getting some good penatration through the tailback. Wish them both the best. Someone is gonna set for at least 18 years. Very expensive lesson to use a condom.

Democrats are evil    

A 38 year old cheerleader. Isn't that special? Single and pregnant. Simply marvelous. Is it a wonder our world isn't more screwed up than it is. Another unwanted child being raised by parents who resent that they even exist. Our society has completely abandoned Gods principles and unwanted children will soon grow up to be very angry adults. Having a good mother and father is becoming a rarity. Regardless of who is the father, the right thing to do is give this child up for adoption. But fat chance, this bitch is obviously out for the money. But they will both get theirs. Selfish people have their own private wing in Hell when they die. It's a shame we can't put people in prison for being stupid parents.

What's with the 'he wants a DNA test' put down? Why the hell shouldn't he want a DNA test - Sylvester Stallone sure is glad he asked for one way back when. We all know who the mother is, but if my son was in the same situation, I'd be urging him to have paternity determined by DNA testing too. Nothing wrong about that at all. Wake up guys, don't put yourselves down by baggine these men who are tricked into being fathers. Women know how to NOT get pregnant. Now all you boys need to do is learn the same thing yourselves. Hopefully the male pill isn't too far off.
