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.

"She verbally antagonized the guy who hit her." Sounds like his agent is saying she was askin' for it. Gross! Also, who dates a dude who's got a bun in someone else's oven? His new GF needs to get a clue.

Claudia, your entire comment is dumb. No woman deserves to be beat, especially when they are pregnant. Just because she was at a club does not mean she was drinking. Dancing is a form of exercise, and doctors say plenty of exercise is good for the pregnancy. Plus, I say bravo to her for not getting an abortion. If it is true that he wanted her to get an abortion, too bad. She's the one carrying the baby, not him. It's not his choice.

Another barbaric athlete.

The lawyers who keep trotting out the tired old "scorned woman looking to get money" defense are a joke.

Guilty!

Ok....it says she filed a police report back in May and we have heard nothing of this until now. My guess would be that because in the police report she didnt say that Northcutt had anything to do with it. I live in Jacksonville and NOTHING has been said about him being in trouble with the law.

I don't know what happened, but just becase she SAID he had something to do with it doesn't mean he really did. The fact that Northcutt wasnt arrested for this but is so quickly being sued says alot to me....
