Surprise! Arian Foster is being sued. I’m hoping you already knew that. After, looking at some before and after photos of the alleged mistress Brittany Norwood, I decided to do some digging of my own. I’m fortunate enough to work with a network of attorney’s that advertise with me through my day job [Yeah, I'm calling you guys my side piece.], so I reached out to a few to see what info I could get on the family and civil case.
This might come as a complete shocker to most, but Brittany Norwood is all about the dollars and not so much concerned with the well being of her unborn child.
Here’s what we know:
- Brittany Norwood is 20 year’s old.
- She’s scared that she’s going to be another single mother.
- Norwood had no idea that Foster was married.
- Norwood spent time in with Foster in California while he was rehabbing his back.
- Norwood claims that she started having sex with Foster last summer.
- Norwood claims that she is 17 weeks pregnant.
- She was constantly harassed by Arian Foster and Abdul Foster (Arian’s brother) to have an abortion.
- She’s claiming emotional distress from the harassment.
- Norwood is claiming that the DNA test is a 99.99% match that Arian Foster is the father of the child.
- Foster’s attorney is saying that this is a ploy so that Norwood can get a reality TV show.
Now that all of that is out of the way, let’s get down to what matters here. According to court documents the original petition was filed on December 5, 2013. Norwood states that she had a paternity test done showing that Foster is the father. There are three kinds of paternity test before a baby is born per Americanpregnancy.org:
- Non-Invasive Prenatal Paternity (NIPP):Unlike amniocentesis or CVS, a non-invasive prenatal paternity test that does not require invasive methods. A blood sample is collected from the mother and alleged father. The baby’s DNA is found in the mother’s bloodstream. The test is accurate and can provide a definitive result at over 99.99% levels. It is amazing tat paternity can be determined using a small quantity of DNA which can be as little as is found in a single cell.
- Amniocentesis: This test is performed in the second trimester, anywhere from the 14th-20th weeks of pregnancy. During this procedure, the doctor uses ultrasound to guide a thin needle into your uterus, through your abdomen. The needle draws out a small amount of amniotic fluid, which is tested. Risks include a small chance of harming the baby and miscarriage. Other side effects may include cramping, leaking of amniotic fluid, and vaginal bleeding. A doctor’s consent is needed to do this procedure for paternity testing.
- Chronic Villus Sampling (CVS): This test consists of a thin needle or tube which a doctor inserts from the vagina, through the cervix, guided by an ultrasound, to obtain chorionic villi. Chorionic villi are little finger-like pieces of tissue attached to the wall of the uterus. The chorionic villi and the fetus come from the same fertilized egg, and have the same genetic makeup. This testing can be done earlier in pregnancy from the 10th-13th weeks. A doctor’s consent is needed to do this procedure for paternity testing.
Hmm… So she would need to either have some of Foster’s blood, or put the child’s life at risk, to find out if Foster is indeed the father of her unborn child. I’d like to think that Arian Foster is a lot smarter than to just give her a sample of blood. Per my source that deals with criminal and family law, most doctors try to stay away from doing any kind of invasive procedures that may harm an unborn child. So, unless Norwood hit up a witch doctor in Beaumont, TX, she had a tough time finding a doctor to do this procedure.
She is also claiming that she is being harassed by Foster and his brother. The last time I checked (whether you believe in it or not), it’s not against the law to ask a partner to get an abortion. So how is that going to stand up in court?
Norwood is also claiming emotional distress. So Norwood needs to prove that Arian Foster has caused her so much emotional stress, that she has got physically ill from a text message or two from him, telling her that she should get an abortion. This has to be beyond morning sickness.
There is also, two separate matters here that I’ve have not addressed. Civil law and Family law. Norwood’s attorney, Douglas York, is trying to combine two separate courts. Civil and Family law are two completely separate systems in Texas. It’s almost like mixing oil and water. It’s not going to stick.
As far as family goes, the judge can’t order Foster to start paying child support on an unborn child. There are too many variables that can occur between now and the time the child is born. Worst case scenario a miscarriage.
What TMZ and KHOU are not going to tell you, is that temporary restraining orders are pretty common in family law.
Here’s the deal, Foster more than likely cheated on his wife. But, there’s no reason for this case to be tying up the court system at this moment. There’s a reason that Norwood went public with this info. I really doubt that it’s because that she is frightened to be a single mother. Look at her face now and look at it back in November. That doesn’t look like your everyday allergic reaction from a bee sting.
I think it’s pretty obvious Douglas York and Brittany Norwood have no clue what they are doing (York doesn’t even have a website for crying out loud).
By the way, York and Norwood (if you’re reading this), I’m not even an Arian Foster fan. At this moment in time, Arian Foster’s lawsuit shouldn’t be held up in court. A baby needs to be born.
