It’s 1st and 10 children for Jets’ Cromartie

NY Post:  Fix the scoreboard: Now it’s 10 kids from eight women in six states.  Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie, 27, recently had his second child with  wife Terricka, making 10 — one short of a football squad.  Their baby boy, Jagger, joins sister Jurzie — and eight half-siblings from  Cromartie baby mamas across the country.
But the happy occasion is mixed with turmoil. His far-flung fatherhood has  intrigued a TV production company that wants to create a reality show about the  clan “trying to co-exist as a modern family,” a source told The Post.  Most of the moms want to do the show, but “Cro” says no.
The baby mamas he left behind have banded together so their kids can bond  with their brothers and sisters in California, Texas, Florida, Georgia, North  Carolina and New Jersey.
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.”
Cromartie has deflected the plan, blocking any filming of his offspring.  It’s not the kind of spotlight sought by Cromartie, who famously fumbled the  names of his brood on HBO’s “Hard Knocks” in 2010 — and even forgot to count one  kid.
Once busy playing the field, the fertile footballer has angered his first  baby mama by wresting custody of their son, Alonzo, now 7.  “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.”
Pierre, who gets no child support from Cromartie, favors the TV show because  she wants her son to know all his half-siblings.  So does Ryan Ross, a hotel employee in Los Angeles, who met Cromartie at a  San Diego nightclub, dated him about six months, and delivered his fifth child,  son Tyler Jae, now 4.
Ross first encountered another Cromartie baby mama when she brought newborn  Tyler to visit the former-San Diego Charger at his apartment. She ran into  Latoya Burley, of Houston, Texas, who was there visiting with daughter Deyjah,  her first of two with Cromartie.  They hit it off. Ross now stays in touch with several other Cro baby  mamas.
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.”
Cromartie visits LA several months a year and spends time with T.J., she  said, but he’s absentee once the Jet football season kicks off.
“I love it,” Ross said of the proposed TV show. “Our kids need to know who  their siblings are. It’s bigger than our past with Antonio. It’s about our  children.”
Cromartie — who signed a four-year, $32 million contract last fallpays  more than $3,500 a month to each baby mama, except Pierre.
He was sacked as a womanizer and cad by Rhonda Patterson, a corporate lawyer  and ex-Miss Black North Carolina. She wrote a memoir, “Love, Intercepted,” telling how Cromartie wooed her, then canceled their wedding a week before the  event and dumped her six months pregnant.  Soon after, she learned Cromartie wed Terricka Cason, a model with a child  from a prior relationship.
Patterson, whose daughter, London, 3, “is the joy of my life,’’ wants no more  to do with the jilting Jet. “That chapter for me has completely closed — talking  about Antonio, thinking about Antonio, even caring what’s going on in his  personal life,” she said.
But, she added, “I wish him the best. Any time a baby is born, it’s a  blessing.”
Yes, a blessing all these babies were born instead of aborted.  Too bad they all won’t know their father as a child should.  Kind of hard to establish a relationship with that many children spread out all across the country.

  1. Well, I rest my case, on the Trayvon comments in previous comments posted. Examples that they can’t help themselves in doing what they dois based in fact.
    Most are immoral and have no restraint. This is why they are right or wrongly discriminated against in America.
    Not all can be catigorized this way, many have broken ranks from the vicious welfare mentality of the black plantation and the black slave masters like Jesse Jackson and Al sharpton and the like.
    More power to the real freed black conservatives.

  2. Absent a marriage license, what makes this any different than polygamy?

    • I was JUST thinking of polygamy, but was trying to think if I would sound bad for saying this: why does the government crack down on polygamists where at least the father provides for the women and children, but ignores ones who have illegitimate kids strewn all over the country?! How does abandonment and irresponsibility put a stamp of morality on the situation?!

  3. wanton cads and criminals only get away with what they’re able…
    rules ,social convemtions and laws are for ‘losers’…not for them.
    Lawlessness always escalates…you’ll hear more about this person.

  4. Your right about that…

  5. I couldn’t even get through the entire article.
