Brittany Jackson on Albert Haynesworth’s accusations: ‘Absurd’

After former Tennessee football player Albert Haynesworth sent out a series of tweets alleging former Vols women’s basketball player and girlfriend Brittany Jackson of physically abusing him and using racial slurs toward him, Jackson has responded, and with a shocking detail.

In a statement given to The Knoxville News Sentinel, Jackson said that she is “saddened and humiliated” by the allegations, and then let it be known that she and Haynesworth had a child together during their relationship, the 7th child of the 2008 NFL Defensive Player of the Year.

“(I)t is critically important to our child that albert (sic) begins to focus on being a good and supportive father. This is a very difficult time for me and our child … Shockingly enough finding out I am the mother of Alberts 7th child, I do not feel I need to stoop to make public his true conduct. As for the domestic accusations, I can not comment at this time due to current litigations but the truth always surfaces.

Accusations of me being racially biased are absurd. Come on albert we lived together for over 2 years and have a beautiful biracial baby that I love more than anything in this world!”

Haynesworth has been accused by Jackson of not paying child support payments.
