The roles have been reversed for Chicago Bears legend Brian Urlacher. The linebacker is now the one getting sacked. The mother of his son is suing him for $125M.
Tyna Karageorge, 45, says Urlacher is tried to smear her name to win custody of their child. According to Yahoo Sports, Karageorge says the retired NFL player partnered with a Chicago Tribune reporter to portray her as “a bad Mother, unfit and a killer,” after her husband committed suicide.
In her lawsuit, she told police that she and her husband were arguing on the night of his death. That's when he pulled a gun from her purse and shot himself in the head. She claims Urlacher is using his death to paint her negatively.
Urlacher and Karageorge had joint custody of their 12-year-old son, but Urlacher has maintained temporary custody since Ryan Karageorge’s death, the Tribune reports.
Urlacher’s attorney Donald Schiller sent this response:
The lawsuit is “essentially a reiteration of the same false statements, twisting of facts and quotes out of context that she has claimed and filed in court proceedings all during this case, Schiller told the Tribune. “None were found to have merit.”
