Arian Foster


... You're a LYING Extortionist

1/21/2014 8:08 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Arian Foster is SUING the woman pregnant with his child for defamation -- claiming she's been LYING about him in public in a diabolical scheme to shake him down for a fortune ... TMZ Sports has learned.

The Houston Texans running back filed the suit in Texas ... saying Brittany Norwood's claims that Arian and his brother tried to strong-arm her into aborting the child are nothing more than a "calculated scheme" to extort the NFL star.

In the suit, Arian says he has PROOF to back up his claims ... including text messages AND a legal recording of a conversation he had with Brittany in which she ADMITS her allegations are false.

During the recorded conversation, which was obtained by TMZ Sports, a woman Foster claims to be Norwood says, "I never once said that you told me to get an abortion" and "I was never in fear of my life around you."

Foster says in his lawsuit, "Norwood has engaged in a campaign to impugn the character and reputation of [Arian] with the intent to extort monies from him."

Foster is asking the judge for unspecified damages -- and he wants Brittany to pay his legal costs -- for dragging his reputation through the mud. 

We broke the story ... Norwood -- who's 18 weeks pregnant -- fired the first shot, suing Arian for child support and a restraining order.

18 weeks? Too early for all this drama. These guys need to be careful who they sleep with. I cant feel too bad for them when they sleep with any and every Looney Tune.

I believe from what distorted info & the only info we have so far is this woman heard jackpot sounds in her head! She not only bedded an athlete (which is 1 goal of many young women nowadys) & not just any athlete... a stupid 1! And I dont mean uneducated stupid but nothing can touch me stupid. Some learn after 1 time but others...working on baby mama #3, 4, 5, 6... As mothers (black, white, latino, etc., we tell are sons to wrap it up, ALWAYS! Some listen, some dont but when the get $$$$$$$$ & every hot chick they can imagine they lose their friggin' minds! This is his fault!! She just jumped on the 1st opportunity to riches she got. There will ALWAYS be women like her & dumb men like him when you think with the wrong head!!

Yeah, cause requesting child support is completely unreasonable....I usually roll my eyes when people say this, but TMZ writers are idiots. It can take months to get parenting plans and child support figured out, why would she wait until THEIR baby is born to even start the proceedings? Oh, and to be clear, she is gross for sleeping with a married man in the first place.

That's funny because if he wins the lawsuit, she will use his own child support $ to pay his legal fees. Lol
