Say What?: Antonio Cromartie Wife Fakes Suicide Because Of Jealousy, Defends First Amendment Right

The baby-daddy tales of New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie are well documented, but for a man who's fathered 10 children by eight different women this latest story may take the cake.

According to the New York Post, Cromartie's wife, Terricka Cason Cromartie, who's pregnant with the couples second child, faked a suicide on May 6 to get the attention of her husband, who she suspected of cheating on her. Terricka sent two text messages to Cromartie in the middle of the night saying, "God forgive me, I don’t want to die. What have I done? I cut my wrists. I took those pills."

Fearing the worst, Cromartie called the police, who broke down two doors with an axe and found Terricka in bed with the two children completely fine.

More on this story after the jump...

"She stated that she had no intention of going through with the act," says a police report on the May 6, 2011 incident. "She said she was exercising her First Amendment right to free speech and could say whatever she wanted."

The jealous wife also admitted sending text messages "to the woman she believes is romantically involved with her husband."

It seems no matter where Cromartie goes, drama follows him and this latest story is just another one to add to the list.

How can anybody question HBO's desire to again follow the Jets' training camp for Hard Knocks?
