*UPDATED* Where do we start with the latest foolywangery of NFL baller Antonio Cromartie? For starters...the New York Jet baller just welcomed his 10th child, Jagger, recently. Yes....10th. This is his and his
(second) wife's second child. Deets inside on the reality show all eight of his baby mamas want to nab, plus what they say about how he's taking care of his umpteen kids....
Remember Terricka Cason (pictured above) from that E! reality show "Candy Girls" about video chicks/groupies? She was a single mother at the time, but has since "gotten her come-up" and has become the wife of the multi-state woman fertilizer Antonio Cromartie. They now have 2 kids together (in addition to Terricka's oldest), a daughter named Jurzie (sigh) & their new son Jagger.
28-year-old Antonio now has 10 kids total (including four 3-year-olds) with 8 women in 6 different states: California, Texas, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and New Jersey. Christmas with all the half-siblings is going to get real interesting.
Before we continue, yes, this is the same Antonio who had mad difficulty remembering all his kids' names (even forgot one) in an HBO Sports special back in 2010:
He later claimed the producers of the show made him "deliberately pause" in between each child as he listed the names. Anywho...
Antonio just signed a new $35 million contract with the Jets, and reportedly pays each of his baby mamas $3500 a month, except for one. And his oldest chid is only 7.
Apparently that $58,000+ yearly child support aint cuttin' it for these chicks, because most (if not all) have stated they are interested in shooting a reality show about their "modern family." Why? Because they believe we all need to know they are not catty and actually do get along and they have strong friendships where they help each other through hardships of the situation. What is this...a "Sister Wives" spinoff to include baby mamas or some ish?
The NY Post reports:
The single women can use the extra money to help raise their kids, but they also think it’s important “to document their journey,” the source said. “They want Antonio’s support.”
His fifth baby mama, an L.A. hotel employee named Ryan Ross, has his 4-year-old son Tyler Jae and said:
“We’re not catty women. We have a close, tight-knit friendship and understand what each other’s going through. We reach out to share news about the kids, to talk, to vent,” she said.
As for Cromartie, she said, “We co-exist for the sake of my son.”
Many of the baby mamas run into each other at Anotnio's house when they bring their kids over for daddy visits. But not all think he's a supberb daddy, especially not his first baby mama Rosemita.
“He’s supposedly a role model, but he’s not doing what he should be doing as a father, or as a man,” said mom Rosemita Pierre, of Tallahassee, Fla.
Cromartie defies a court order that allows her to speak with her son three times a week, she charged.
“They don’t answer the phone,” said Pierre, who’s called the cops in Randolph, NJ, to knock on Cromartie’s door. “It’s a hurtful situation — like he’s trying to erase me.”
By the way, Antonio almost married another one of his baby mamas, a corporate lawyer named Rhonda Patterson who is based in L.A., but he called it off a week before the nuptials. Likely because he had gotten a few other chicks pregnant at the same time Patterson was.
Here's to hoping this foolery doesn't find its way to TV. And congrats to the couple on their second child together.
*UPDATE* Terricka tweeted today that she and Antonio have been married for 4 years and their son, Jagger, is almost 1 now. She also says that she is Antonio's first and only wife, disputing the NY Post report that this is his second marriage.
