Silvia Mena, whom the Post claims is a "Salma Hayek look-alike," is reportedly preparing to file legal papers in the Brooklyn Supreme Court that will claim Haynesworth impregnated her, abandoned her and which will demand upwards of $10 million to help cover what would presumably be medical costs and punitive damages.
She claims in the documents that after learning about the pregnancy, Haynesworth promised to "emotionally and financially support Silvia." But, "after making such promises ... Haynesworth has abandoned the pregnant Silvia Mena ... He has refused to provide any emotional or financial support of Silvia Mena or his unborn child."Her lawyer -- Salvatore Strazzullo -- told the Post that he would be filing the papers in court on Wednesday. He also claims that Mena has had to apply for Medicaid to take care of her medical bills.
The timeline for this ordeal -- Mena, a 25-year-old exotic dancer in Brooklyn, claims they met in Miami and that Haynesworth romanced her at the Super Bowl before inviting her to his house in Tennessee -- is a bit odd, though, in that it's not like they dated for several years.
Or even several months. In fact, it would seem that they (according to Mena) met in late 2009 in Miami and then hung out again there during the Super Bowl in February of 2010. Shortly after that, Mena claims she told Haynesworth about the pregnancy and he left her high and dry.
It's obviously a he-said/she-said thing that'll end up happening, and in a situation involving a high-profile athlete with a not-so-sterling off-the-field reputation, it wouldn't be surprising to see this go away quickly while involving some sort of settlement.
