Houston Texans star Arian Foster has initiated a countersuit against a pregnant college student he claims has launched a "calculated scheme" to extort money from the running back, TMZ reported Tuesday.
According to TMZ, Foster’s lawsuit argues that "Norwood has engaged in a campaign to impugn the character and reputation of [Arian] with the intent to extort monies from him." The suit further is pursuing unspecified damages, in addition for Norwood to pay his legal costs.
Brittany Norwood, a senior at the University of Houston, told TV station KHOU last week that she did not realize Foster, 27, is married with a daughter when the two had sex last summer during Texans training camp. Norwood also claims the pair spent a week together in California, while Foster recovered from back surgery, and sent photos of them together to TMZ.
However, an audio clip TMZ obtained includes a woman Foster alleges to be Norwood, saying "I never once said that you told me to get an abortion" and "I was never in fear of my life around you."
