NBA Star Anthony Edwards Denies Model’s Claim He Paid Her to Abort His Baby
Minnesota Timberwolves star Anthony Edwards has been accused by model Jeanine of paying her to get an abortion after she became pregnant with his child. Robel, who goes by the Instagram handle @jeaninerobel_, posted a series of screenshots of text messages allegedly between her and Edwards on her Instagram story on Saturday, December 16, 2023. In the messages, Edwards appears to offer Jeanine $10,000 to terminate the pregnancy and threatens to sue her if she goes public with the news. Robel also claims that Edwards blocked her on social media and stopped communicating with her after she refused to accept his offer.
Robel, who has over 500,000 followers on Instagram, captioned the screenshots with the following message: “I’m sorry but I can’t keep this a secret anymore. I’m pregnant with Anthony Edwards’ baby and he wants me to get an abortion. He offered me money and said he would sue me if I told anyone. He blocked me on everything and won’t answer my calls. I don’t know what to do. I’m scared and alone. Please help me.”
How did Edwards respond?
Edwards, who is 21 years old and the first overall pick in the 2020 NBA draft, released a statement on Sunday, December 17, 2023, through his agent and lawyer, denying Jeanine Robel’ allegations and claiming that he never had a relationship with her. He also said that he is taking legal action against Jeanine for defamation and extortion. Here is his statement in full:
“I am aware of the false and malicious allegations made by Jeanine Robel on social media. These allegations are completely untrue and fabricated. I have never had any kind of relationship with Jeanine Robel, let alone gotten her pregnant. I have never met her in person, nor have I ever exchanged any messages with her. The screenshots she posted are fake and doctored.
She is trying to extort me for money and fame by lying about me and my character. I will not tolerate this kind of slander and harassment. I have instructed my legal team to pursue all available remedies against Jeanine for defamation and extortion. I hope that the truth will come out and that she will be held accountable for her actions. I appreciate the support of my family, friends, fans, and the Timberwolves organization during this difficult time.”
