*Washington Redskins star Albert Haynesworth says he was “blindsided” by the $10 million lawsuit filed against him by a Brooklyn stripper.
Haynesworth, one of the NFL’s highest paid defensive players, admitted sleeping with 25-year-old Silvia Mena, but claims he used a condom.
Mena, currently four months along, is accusing him of “abandoning” her after finding out that she was pregnant. In court documents, Mena says she hooked up with Haynesworth during Super Bowl week and began dating afterward.
TMZ.com is citing a source who claims Haynesworth is “adamant that he used protection,” and that he never carried on a relationship with Mena after their Super Bowl week encounter.
“Our source also tells us Haynesworth has said he will ‘absolutely’ take responsibility if the woman can prove the child is his,” TMZ reported.
