Well this shouldn’t come as a complete shocker to anyone. Brittany Norwood, the woman that is suing Arian Foster for trying to force her into having an abortion, is now claiming that Foster is not a “Monster”.
According to recordings that were attained by TMZ, Norwood states in her conversation with Foster:
I never once said that you told me to get an abortion.
I’m not going to sit here and be like okay with — those papers said, ‘harassment,’ like ‘in fear.’ I was never in fear of my life around you. Like, I didn’t f*cking need a restraining order.
You never harassed me. Like, I will tell him that verbatim. Like, as I have told him that, and that something in here needs to be f*cking changed because it’s not fair, because — and I said that. I was like Arian’s not a monster.
Like, I’m sorry that those papers … because I was told that they weren’t going to go anywhere. He said, you know, this is just to get the ball rolling, and then if we settle outside of court, we settle outside of court and it never goes public.
Like, I love you and you’re still the father of my child … You think I’m going to let anybody like desecrate your name, especially if my baby has Foster tagged to it? Come on.”
When TMZ reached out to her about the recordings, she claims she doesn’t remember the conversation, saying:
I don’t care what the world thinks of me, at the end of the day, I’m educated, I work hard to make a life for my son, be a role model, and [my son's] super woman.
The truth will always come out. At the end of the day, Arian knows the truth and I know the truth. It’s none of the world’s business anymore.”
I’ll get to my thoughts on this in a second.
Sean Pendergast from Sports Radio 610 and the Houston Press, summed all of this up nicely by simply saying:
Norwood appears to be backpedaling on everything her lawsuit claims, making it sound as though her lawyer chose to pile on these additional allegations, likely in order get traction and movement on things like child support. In the process, Norwood throws her lawyer under the bus and backs over him a couple times for good measure…
Now I don’t go around suing people or anything. But I do have the common sense to know that we live in 2014, and technology is pretty amazing. So I probably wouldn’t be spewing word vomit, when I’m talking to someone that I am currently suing.
It just doesn’t seem like the smartest thing in the world, because you know, it can be recorded by just downloading a simple app on your smartphone.
Here’s a few other things I would/wouldn’t do, if I was suing a high profile athlete:
- Delete all of my social media accounts. Especially pics of me dressed as a Gold Digger for Halloween. (Maybe that’s just what she wears on the weekends. No one really knows at this point)
- I wouldn’t call TMZ and tell them that I am suing a high profile athlete and regurgitate some sob story to them. It’s TMZ for crying out loud. Don’t they pay people for info? I could be wrong about that. But if that is the case, you’re pretty much getting paid so they can perform R Kelly sex moves on your character. Have you seen their show? That clown-like voice narrative between every cut, coupled with the room full of guys that tuck their hair behind their ears, more times than Mitch Krammer from Dazed and Confused.
- Hire a high profile lawyer. I hear Foster has money. So getting a good lawyer/coach wouldn’t be a bad idea.
It’s all very baffling to me.
