About an hour before the start of the 2019 NFL Draft, jaw-dropping news surfaced about an audio recording that aired on a local TV station in which the star wide receiver’s fiancée accused him of abusing their 3-year-old son.
KCTV in Kansas City aired part of an 11-minute audio file in which Espinal tells Hill that when asked about an injury to the child’s arm, the boy replied: “Daddy did it.”
Hill denies any role in what happened to the child’s arm, adding: “He says Daddy does a lot of things.”
Espinal then says, “A 3-year-old is not going to lie about what happened to his arm.”
“Daddy did it,” Espinal says, paraphrasing the boy. “He is terrified of you.”
Hill responds, according to the recording: “You need to be terrified of me, too, b—-.”
Following the draft, the Kansas City Chiefs announced that Tyreek Hill had been barred indefinitely from all team activities.
On Friday, the team finally sent out a soft statement about the newest developments that was eerily similar to what their GM stated just hours before:
The franchise was already reeling from having to let Kareem Hunt go, and now they are faced with having to cut Tyreek Hill some months later.
