The former fiancé of the suspended President of the Kansas City Chief Wide, Tyreek Hill, filed a petition in a Kansas court to prove that he is the father of her newborn twins and to determine child benefit amounts.
Hill and his former partner Crystal Espinal had recently been in the news when he was investigated by the Kansas Department of Children and Families for possible child abuse, battery or neglect, of their three-year-old son, whose arm was broken during an March incident at Hill & # 39; s house.
Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe announced in April that he would not file charges against Hill, but would return days later when audio appeared in which Hill apparently threatened Espinal. At the beginning of June, Howe & # 39; s office acknowledged that the reopened investigation was no longer active.
Espinal was pregnant during much of that ordeal, but has since then given birth to twins, who, according to a court The Kansas City Star, live with Espinal and carry her last name.
The purpose of the petition was to determine the paternity of the Respondent (Hill & # 39; s) of the minor children, to grant the Defendant all the rights, privileges, duties and obligations that the father / child relationship & # 39;
Tyreek Hill and Crystal Espinal (left) have a three-year-old son, who is reportedly temporarily taken out of custody after two incidents at their home, involving a young person.
In addition, the petition was filed & # 39; to establish custody and residence of minor children, to establish an appropriate timetable for parenthood and to establish appropriate childcare assistance. & # 39;
The submission goes on to state that the two & # 39; are not married, have never been married and do not intend to & # 39 ;.
Espinal requires full detention and Hill pays child benefit.
Hill has previously had problems with the law.
In 2015, he pleaded guilty to domestic assault and battery strangulation after an 2014 incident with Espinal while the two had gone to the state of Oklahoma. She was pregnant with their son at that time.
As he entered his plea, Hill told a judge that he & # 39; had done something that I should not have done & # 39; and that & # 39; I had let my feelings take control of me & # 39 ;, according to the ESPN report.
Hill was kicked off the team in Oklahoma State and ended up in West Alabama. When they drafted Hill in 2016, the Chiefs explained that he was following counseling.
Following the investigation into child abuse, the Chiefs announced at the end of April that Hill was excluded from team activities.
Hill may be subject to discipline in accordance with the NFL's personal conduct policy, although there is currently no criminal investigation into the case.
In the part of the recording just released, played by 610 KCSP radio, Hill heard Cyrstal Espinal say he didn't touch you in 2014.
& # 39; You ruined my life and I lied to me in 2014, & # 39; Hill said to Espinal. & # 39; I'm still not over that. I didn't touch you in 2014.
& # 39; You lied to me in 2014. If you want to rewind that evening, we can rewind that evening. You were in my house. And did I pick you up and throw you? Not really. I picked you up and put you out my door and then you left. & # 39;
Dan Graziano from ESPN reported that NFL investigators have already heard the full recording and are included in determining the possible discipline that Hill should be imposed.
Kansas City station KCTV released the other 11 minutes of the audio recording at the end of April, which Hill and Espinal were assumed to be at Dubai International Airport.
The television station said it received the audio from & # 39; someone who is concerned about the well-being of the couple's child & # 39 ;.
The broadcast of the original audio urged the Johnson County District Attorney & # 39; s Office to look a second time at a potential criminal case involving injuries to the couple's three-year-old son.
When the police responded to their house earlier, there were signs that a crime had been committed against the child, but the prosecution said it would not have been able to prove who did it.
In the 11-minute audio file, Espinal Hill heard the boy say, & # 39; Dad did it & # 39 ;, referring to the child's arm injury.
Hill denies any role in what happened to the child's arm by adding: & # 39; He says Dad does a lot of things. & # 39;
& # 39; A three-year-old will not lie about what happened to his arm, & # 39; says Espinal, adding that the boy is & # 39; terrified of you & # 39 ;, says Espinal.
Hill heard Espinal say: & # 39; You must also be terrified of me, b ****. & # 39;
Espinal later says, referring to the boy: & # 39; He kept saying, & # 39; Dad hits me, & what you do when he starts crying. What are you doing? You let him open his arms and you hit him in the chest. If he gets into trouble, you take the belt out. & # 39;
