New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie is having a rough year.

Last month, Cromartie was in the news because his seven baby mamas wanted to film a reality show centering around their 10 kids with the football player. But Cromartie quickly shut that down.

Now there are reports that his wife Terricka Cason who is seven months pregnant with their second child together and his 11th allegedly faked a suicide attempt, the New York Post reports. Cason, who was on the E! reality show Candy Girls that centered around video models, allegedly believes her husband is cheating on her so she took drastic measures to make him feel bad about it.

Cason sent her husband texts that said,” “God forgive me, I don’t want to die. What have I done?” and “I cut my wrists. I took those pills.” Cromartie quickly called the New Jersey police to report that his wife tried to commit suicide.

He allegedly called the Randolph Township, NJ police department at 2:43 a.m and told the dispatcher, “There’s a problem at my house. She’s bleeding. She cut her wrists.”

The cops rang the door bell and called her on the phone but when she didn’t respond they broke down the front door with an ax and sledgehammer. They found Carson in bed with her two daughters.

The New York Post reports:

Terricka confessed she had faked the suicide try because she thought Cromartie — who has 10 kids, including eight with seven other women — was “cheating on her.”

“She stated that she had no intention of going through with the act,” says a police report on the May 6, 2011 incident. “She said she was exercising her First Amendment right to free speech and could say whatever she wanted.”

The jealous wife also admitted sending text messages “to the woman she believes is romantically involved with her husband.”

She apparently tried to scare off her would-be rival, “telling her that both she [Terricka] and her husband have [word redacted] even though they do not,” the report says.

Officers told Terricka she had to undergo a psychiatric evaluation at a local hospital. Terricka objected, saying that a paid driver was coming to take to her to the airport to go to Miami, and that she would be in her sister’s wedding that weekend.

But cops insisted she was “in need of involuntary commitment.” She became “belligerent, uncooperative, irrational and argumentative.”

She said she had no one to watch her kids, but finally agreed to be hauled off. The state’s child-protection agency took temporary care of her daughters, one from a prior relationship and one with Cromartie.
