Ex-L.A. Lakers and New York Knicks player Jeremy Tyler is reportedly experiencing quite a bit of drama from the mother of his 10-month-old son and former longtime girlfriend, Sukey Rowan.
The miffed mom is being accused by Tyler of not only punching their baby boy but kicking his 9-month pregnant sister in the belly after the pair got into a heated altercation earlier this month, TMZ reports.
The 23-year-old, 6’10” power forward, who is on the verge of signing a deal to play in China, reportedly went to an L.A. court to request an order of protection from Rowan.
The friction reportedly began when Rowan arrived at Tyler’s mother’s home demanding to see her son before she was actually expected to be there. Tyler told the celeb site, “I brought [the child] outside and she swung at me and tried to hit me while I was holding our son,” Tyler contends. “At one point she missed me and hit our son.”
The young baller continued to recount his story stating, “My sister tried to get between us, and she kicked my sister, who is nine months pregnant, in the stomach.”
Tyler’s alleged fears are that Rowan, who is English, will transport their child to Great Britain. Tyler also claims that his ex’s unstable moods, violent temper and mental issues is not a nurturing environment for a child to be raised in at all.
Tyler was reportedly granted a temporary restraining order against Rowan and the court document also prevents her from leaving these shores with their baby.
