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.

He's a much classier guy than that. . .
All guys hook up, especially rich NFL stars but I HIGHLY doubt any of this is true, the bribing and the abortion request etc

I had put White and Black pro sports players. I blame TMZ, YO! They're trying to smear my good reputation. ;-D

hehe Actually, I don't follow sports at all (other than men's diving; Mmm... Speedos!). I just know al the major league sports stereotypes of players running around on their wives and girlfriends and having multiple children w/ multiple women. Of course, there's a *hint* of truth to that stereotype. But thanks for setting me, err-- straight.

Every man should have a DNA test for all childern born before accepting the words of a woman. DNA tests for paternity has shown that over 40% of all babies tested since 2000 have shown the wrong man was identified as the father. In America, lying and concealing multiple sexual partners by women have proven just how out of control both men and women are sexually. Men don't be the fool you have been before DNA testing existed, women are no more honorable than men.

Just wondering again...    

First?

Seriously---How is she asking for child support and the baby hasn't even arrived? Sounds to me like she heard the "cha-ching" of the cash register ring before they had a chance to get naked. This baby is going to be nothing to her but a meal ticket and free pass into the "15 minutes of fame" club. Tell Chris Crocker we said hello...

If you are not ready for the responsibility of being a parent, and ready to handle it on your own, maybe sex isn't the thing for you.

Seriously....38 years old and knocked up? You would think she would know how to avoid pregnancy @ this point. As for him lots of $$ and hittin' it unprotected? That's crazy too!!

Wrap it up or abstain...it's not rocket science!!

30. Re: "5. What an ass. I can't believe it when men tell women to get abortions. At least he didn't threaten her or anything like that.

I bet you can believe it whenever women decide, on their own, to have the fetus killed and either don't tell the father about the pregnancy or if she informs [the F A T H E R] has an abortion even though the father wants to have the child.

Men can't win in this feminazi culture.

ITS her body Bozo! He had the option to wrap it up...Although I am suspect of her motivations. She is 37 and he is 24. He has made it known that he does not want to be a father. After the check what else can she expect????

Yes it's her body and using that argument she knows her body can get impregnated when she has unprotected sex so does that mean that she wanted to become pregnant.

Yes it's her body but a fetus is the product of two people so why does only one have any rights as to whether to kill the child or let it live and raise it?

If you want women only to have 100% decision making then also take away 100% of the responsibility of the man if he does not want the child.

That's equality, that's what you feminazis want, right. No, what you want is advantages over men disguised as "equality".

Matt Leinart, Larry Fitzgerald...yes, the Arizona Cardinals can score. Unfortunately for them (or perhaps fitting, given the Cardinals' decades-long history of ineptitude), it all comes off the field.
