That Redick Story

Like a lot of you, we saw the JJ Redick hit on Deadspin which suggested that the former Duke star had a contract with a former girlfriend regarding an abortion. We didn't link to it because first, it's Deadspin, which is hit or miss when it comes to credibility.

Secondly, if it had been true, it's their business, not ours. Presumably there would be a privacy clause in any such agreement. It's not like we haven't taken shots at people over the years. We periodically get letters from Leitaos and Penders telling us just what they think. But something like what Deadspin alleges is pretty personal.

As it turns out, though, Redick responded via Twitter and emphatically denied the story:

  • I'd like to respond to the outrageous, false and malicious media reports regarding a prior relationship between myself and V Lopez in 2007-
  • Ms Lopez was not and has never been pregnant with a child fathered by me.
  • And Ms. Lopez did not and has never terminated a pregnancy of a child fathered by me.
  • Continued attention to these lies is severely damaging to myself and my family. Thank you.

That seems like a reasonable request. Among other things, members of Redick's family periodically visit this site. There was a thread on the board but it's since been locked.
