Just two days after extended audiotape between Crystal Espinal and Tyreek Hill went public, Espinal was in court filing a paternity action against Hill.

According to Jon Parton, who is the Kansas Editor for Courthouse News Service, Espinal “seeks to determine paternity of twins born this month.”

Additionally, the court petition states that the couple, who have long been reported as engaged, “are not married, never have been married, and do not intend to be married.”

It’s unclear if the recent release of that full audio recording is in any way related to the action Espinal took today in court.

What we do know without a shadow of doubt is that Hill, who was being secretly recorded by Espinal, never admitted to hurting his three-year-old son, that he says Espinal lied about the 2014 incident, and that he seemed to regret ever getting deep into a relationship with her.

You ruined my life and you lied on me in 2014, bro,” Hill said of the incident that got him kicked off Oklahoma State’s football team. “My life is supposed to be a whole lot easier right now … 2014 wasn’t supposed to happen. None of that [expletive]. But I broke my son’s arm? Come on, let’s be real, bro.”

Given the court filing on Thursday, it would seem that Espinal is not sure if Hill is the father of the twins she gave birth to this month. It also seems like Hill and Espinal may be separating.

A complicated situation continues to stay that way, and all the while, Hill awaits potential discipline from the NFL over the claims she made that he broke their son’s arm.
