ABORTION IN THE NEWS
NBA STAR JJ REDICK HAD BIZARRE ABORTION CONTRACT WITH EX GIRLFRIEND
It's one of the most bizarre contracts ever connected to the NBA and leaked out recently after being kept secret since 2007 when JJ Redick's model superstar girlfriend, Vanessa Lopez, became pregnant.
Redick is no stranger to contracts, having been with the NBA for several years, but this one seems weird and outlandish to most. By signing the contract, Lopez agreed to abort their child, and in exchange Redick would stay in the "relationship" with her for one year... or, if the relationship ended, Redick would pay Lopez $25,000.
The contract further required Lopez to provide proof of both the pregnancy and the abortion, including providing access for Redick to her medical records.
Redick and Lopez signed the contract on September 13, 2007, when she was about four months pregnant and went immediately to the abortion clinic. Lopez completed her end of the deal, but the stipulation for the relationship to continue was promptly ended.
On September 27 Lopez called the police to file a complaint about threatening phone calls from Redick's younger brother.
Supposedly Lopez was later counseled for post abortion syndrome and stress caused by the relationship.
