Reports recently surfaced that Antonio Cromartie’s wife feigned a suicide attempt last year because she thought her husband was cheating. In the early morning of May 6, 2011, the Jets’ cornerback’s eighth baby mama, Terricka Cason Cromartie, sent her husband text messages stating “God forgive me, I don’t want to die. What have I done?” as well as “I cut my wrists. I took those pills.”
The father of ten, then in Miami, Florida, called New Jersey police at 2:43 a.m. and told the operator “There’s a problem at my house. She’s bleeding. She cut her wrists.”
The cops knocked down the door and found a pregnant Terricka in bed with her two kids, apparently alright. The New York Post cited a police report which said “She stated that she had no intention of going through with the act…She said she was exercising her First Amendment right to free speech and could say whatever she wanted.”
The entire ploy was an attempt to dissuade her husband from cheating, however police insisted she have a psychiatric check up, at which point “she became ‘belligerent, uncooperative, irrational and argumentative'” the newspaper reported.
On May 20, Terrick retorted, tweeting “The Devil is Busy as always …. Believe non of what u hear & only half of what you see.. Good morning hope every1 has a blessed day.”
