Crystal Espinal and Tyreek Hill

Crystal and Tyreek almost immediately started a romantic relationship, but it was just a few months into their romance when the problems started emerging. Crystal was pregnant when Tyreek came on to her; he came into possession of some messages on her phone and laptop, which he then threw away in the hallway and asked Crystal to leave the apartment.

At the moment when the incident occurred, she was just in her t-shirt and underwear and wanted to get into the room to get dressed, when Tyreek allegedly hit her in the stomach and face, continuing to hit and choke her. Crystal managed to call the police, and Tyreek was arrested and subsequently sentenced to three years of probation, and to enter an anger management program, and undergo a domestic-abuse evaluation. Luckily the whole situation didn’t affect her pregnancy, as Crystal gave birth to their son Zev in mid- 2015.

Since then, Crystal and Tyreek managed to overcome their problems and reconciled, becoming engaged in 2018. The couple has since entered another legal battle, as Crystal accused Tyreek of breaking their son’s arm, and they separated again. Though she gave birth to twins in 2019, Tyreek asked for a paternity test which was presumably positive, as they are apparently fighting for custody of their children.
