NFL Star Accused of Barbaric Hit On Pregnant GF -- REDIRECT

8/26/2008 8:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A shocking lawsuit just filed ... a woman claims the father of her unborn baby -- an NFL star -- conspired to brutally beat her up.

Sharri Henry alleges last May, when she was four months pregnant, Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Dennis Northcutt got his cousin to "maliciously assault, beat, strike and batter Plaintiff, her face and head with great force and violence ... causing severe and permanent disfigurement to her face."

We've confirmed Henry filed a report with the LAPD for the incident that allegedly went down outside Falcon Club in Hollywood on May 17.

In the lawsuit filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, Henry alleges battery and conspiracy to commit assault. She's seeking unspecified damages.

BTW, Northcutt just inked a $17 million contract with his team.

UPDATE: IT JUST GOT CRAZIER. Northcutt's sports agent, Jerome Stanley, told TMZ, "This was nothing but a desperate shakedown by a jilted ex-girlfriend who is claiming to be pregnant with his child." Stanley says Henry is upset because Northcutt dumped her for another girl. As for the assault, Stanley says, "She verbally antagonized the guy who hit her." He says Northcutt knew nothing about the attack until after it happened.

Henry's lawyer, Loyst P. Fletcher, just gave TMZ the following statement: "Mr. Northcutt and his entourage, which included his current girlfriend, were apparently angry that Miss Henry refused to abort a child that she believed he fathered. Words were exchanged and a member of that entourage, whom we believe is Mr. Northcutt's cousin, viciously attacked Miss Henry." She's now 7 months pregnant.

by the way, no one endorses what this guy allegedly did, but as usual the baby Hitlers will somehow find a way to blame it on Obama, Jesse and Al, and the entire black race nonetheless.

The Emcee, "Rev Fatburger" is not an actual person. It's a creature who couldn't post sensibly under any single name. It gets most of its jollies insulting other posters and impostering them. Don't waste you time on it.

That said, I want to hear more of the actual facts of the case. I think it's unreasonable to try to force a woman to have an abortion even if you don't want her to have the child. There are ways of preventing pregnancies after all. If it isn't his, he should just wait until the baby is born and then demand a blood test. Wouldn't be the first time a woman claimed that a famous man fathered her child in hopes of a regular payday. (I know somebody said he wasn't famous but compared to many, he is rich and famous.) On the other hand, you can't go around beating people up no matter the provocation. Sounds like there may be enough blame to go around.
