NFL Star Antonio Cromartie

We're Foreclosing on Your Home

4/21/2012 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

NY Jets
superstar Antonio Cromartie -- the dude with 10 kids (and 2 on the way) -- is in danger of losing the house he bought with his mom back in 2006 ... right AFTER he became a multi-millionaire ... TMZ has learned.

Cromartie is being sued by the Bank of NY ... for allegedly blowing off $105,381 in missed mortgage payments on an 864 sq. foot home he bought in his hometown of Tallahassee, Florida in November '06.

According to Zillow.com, Cromartie bought the house for $135k. Docs show he co-signed on the loan with his mom right after he was selected in the 1st round of the 2006 NFL Draft  ... and they locked in on a ridiculously high 9.7% interest rate.

Bank of NY claims Antonio stopped making payments in 2010 ... and now it wants a judge to force the Pro Bowler to hand over the keys to the property AND make good on his mortgage payments ... plus interest.

We're guessing the bank is aware of the MASSIVE contract he signed with the Jets last year ... 4-years, $32 million ... which probably isn't that much considering he's got 12 mouths to feed ... plus baby mamas.

Calls to Cromartie's reps have not been returned.

(edit) Overrated=overpopulated . Pisses me off so incredibly a lot when I read how people stupid and irresponsible people are. We (well those who would work.. lazy/stupid/.. people would still earn less and have lower standard, no system can make everyone wealthy) could all live like kings, with huge backyards, houses on the beach for everyone practically, high standard if only the population would at least halve or more. People stop procreating like coachroaches FFS.

Over 70% of blacks are born out of wedlock, this is a very disturbing statistic considering blacks make up only 13% of the population. This clown seems to be doing his part to keep things that way

This poor moron is DOOMED. 12 Babies, baby mamas, no brains, and a "career" in the NFL. He'll either end up dead or in prison when he realizes what he has done to his life. And his mom will be homeless too!

My God, this man needs his head examined (the one between his shoulders). Twelve kids and all of those women who will want substantial payments? He's also the type that will get messed up in a car crash and see his income drop to zero. So many dumb athletes, but this guy is right up there at the top of the list.

Who Knew    

A fool and his money. He will file for bankruptcy 1 year after he is out of the league. Bet his payments on his 10 cars are up to date.

Before any of these moronic athletes or entertainers sign a big contract they should be chemically castrated. This particular moron will be flat broke in 10 years and the taxpayers will be paying for all his bastardized children.

"Wikipedia - Cromartie has fathered ten children with eight women living in six states. In March 2010, the Jets provided Cromartie with a $500,000 advance so he could make outstanding child support payments." Sorry, but this part of the black culture doesn't impress me. He'll make $100Million paying football, be bankrupt one year after retirement, and we'll be on the hook for his children's welfare.

This dude has no frigging brains. His **** must be a radar, seeking women ready to breed and bare his kid. OMG,so many guys in sports think they have rights to reproduce and not pay for it. Maybe they need some training in sex, and how to wrap it.
