Terricka Cason Cromartie, the wife of NY Jet Cornerback Antonio Cromartie, got herself and her children in a bit of hot water recently when she sent Antonio a text describing a potential committal of suicide. Fox Sports News is reporting Antonio, who was in Miami received the text from Terricka called the police not long after.
“There’s a problem at my house. She’s bleeding. She cut her wrists,” he told the dispatcher.
When no one answered the bell or phone at the house, cops broke down two doors with an ax and sledgehammer, ran upstairs and found Terricka in bed with her two daughters.
Not a drop of blood in sight.
Terricka confessed she had faked the suicide try because she thought Cromartie — who has 10 kids, including eight with seven other women — was “cheating on her.”
“She stated that she had no intention of going through with the act,” says a police report on the May 6, 2011 incident. “She said she was exercising her First Amendment right to free speech and could say whatever she wanted.”
The jealous wife also admitted sending text messages “to the woman she believes is romantically involved with her husband.”
Terricka then was requested to undergo a psychiatric evaluation after the incident, culminating this embarrassing strategy to gain the attention of her husband.
It does strongly seem that Antonio does have a long and storied reputation with infidelity. Terricka has probably been dealing with these stories involving her husband for sometime and they probably do not have the most healthiest of relationships. But one has to ask oneself is it even possible to have a relationship with a man that has 10 kids with 8 different women?
What are your thoughts? Did Terricka cross the line with her suicide note?
