Bizarre Twist in Roethlisberger Assault Case

7/21/2009 11:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ben RoethlisbergerSources connected to the Ben Roethlisberger sexual assault case claim the psychiatric care the accuser says she's under has nothing to do with Ben .... it has to do with a relationship she had with a man who never existed.

Andrea McNulty has sued Roethlisberger, the Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl champ, claiming he sexually assaulted her in July 2008. Sources tell us Roethlisberger and McNulty had a sexual liaison at the time but Ben insists it was purely consensual. We're told the two knew each other because Ben had stayed at Harrah's in Lake Tahoe over the last several years for golf tournaments -- and she worked at the hotel.

Sources connected with the case tell us a former co-worker of McNulty's at Harrah's came forward with this incredible story -- that around the time McNulty hooked up with Roethlisberger, she was allegedly involved with a married man. The man's wife, we're told, created an email account, posing as a U.S. soldier in Iraq. The wife began corresponding with McNulty to gain information. We're told the former co-worker has said McNulty fell in love with the fictitious soldier and began telling people she was engaged to him. When the wife stopped the correspondence, McNulty then began telling people the soldier was killed in action.

We're told McNulty told at least one co-worker she began seeing a psychiatrist because of the phantom soldier.

We tried repeatedly getting in touch with McNulty. So far we have been unable to reach her.

Andrea McNulty is trying to copy the groupie Katelyn Faber who blackmailed Kobe Bryant after targeting him and having sex with him in his hotel room. I'm sure she was trying to get pregnant and secure a huge payday.

What does the married man's wife sending her fake email correspondance have to do with her being sexually assaulted by someone else. This is why woman don't report. One has noting to do with the other. Jail him and sue him.

Another mentally unstable woman crying assault after consentual sex - just like the Kobe case.

Yes she had an affair with a married man, but that's at least as much his fault as hers. If she believed the wife's fictitious soldier emails I really feel for her. I know it would really mess me up if I befriended someone in the military, had a supposed romantic relationship, then learned it was a hoax. This is not so different than the mother who drove a 13yr old girl to suicide pretending to be a cute boy then deriding her. I feel for her.

Driving drunk in South Beach, picking up unknown chicks from hotels/bars/airports/stadiums, gambling fast amounts of cash, getting in bar fights just a few stupid stunts that should go by the wayside when you become a high profile "professional" athlete. Doesn't the NFL give theses guys some kind of book of who and what you steer clear of? This will be high priced tuition for Big Ben in what to avoid, welcome to life as a star QB Ben...... grow up.
