J. J. Redick, newly acquired shooting guard for the Los Angeles Clippers, is making headlines for something other than his skills on the court.
According to reports, the 29-year-old NBA baller entered into an “abortion contract” with his now ex-girlfriend Vanessa Lopez, in which he offered to maintain a relationship with her for a year or pay her $25,000 in exchange for an abortion of a pregnancy that she claimed was his.
The 2007 agreement was leaked online and focused on the fact that the couple had ended a previous relationship they shared when Lopez, supposedly one of retired NBA star Shaquille O’Neal’s mistresses, claimed she was pregnant and Redick was the father.
Redick denied that the child Lopez was carrying belonged to him but agreed to attempt to start a “social and/or dating relationship” with Lopez for a year once the pregnancy had been confirmed by his doctors and terminated.
All we can say is wow! I’ll even bet that several other celebrities have agreements like this in place!
