NFL Star Tyreek Hill Faces Lawsuit Over Tackling Instagram Model In His Backyard

NFL wide receiver Tyreek Hill stands accused of breaking a woman's leg during a backyard football lesson back in May 2023.

NFL wide receiver Tyreek Hill, known as the “Cheetah” for his prowess on the field, is facing legal trouble as he stands accused of breaking a woman’s leg during a backyard football lesson back in late May of 2023, according to TMZ Sports.

Model, actress, and influencer Sophie Hall claims that Hill retaliated with “crushing force” after she successfully held her ground during practice drills at his Florida mansion. The alleged incident left Hall in need of reconstructive surgery and months of physiotherapy.

The lawsuit, filed in Broward County, accuses Hill of battery, assault, and negligence. Hall contends that the NFL superstar became “enraged” and forcefully shoved her, resulting in severe fractures to her leg. The complaint states, “Unfortunately, after getting ‘humiliated’ in front of friends and family when he was knocked backward during a friendly football lesson by his friend Sophie Hall, Tyreek became enraged.”

Hill, who had an exceptional 2023 NFL season, finishing with leading receiving yards and touchdowns, now faces legal challenges off the field. The complaint details Hill’s alleged flirtatious messages to Hall following her enrollment of her 10-year-old son in the Tyreek Hill Football Camp.

Hall asserts that Hill, refusing to believe her height, flew her to Florida and invited her to his luxurious mansion. The suit claims that Hill invited Hall to participate in offensive drills in an attempt to showcase his skills. The situation reportedly escalated when Hill, allegedly embarrassed by the encounter, became angry.

The lawsuit contends that Hill’s aggressive behavior resulted in significant injuries to Hall, who sustained a right leg fracture requiring surgery. Despite Hill downplaying the severity of the injury initially, Hall was diagnosed with a fracture that necessitated ongoing medical treatment.

The complaint also alludes to Hill’s history of “violent and aggressive behavior towards women” without providing specific details.

According to Daily Mail, this adds to a series of controversies surrounding Hill, including being kicked off the Oklahoma State team in 2015 for alleged domestic violence. In 2019, he faced suspension over child abuse allegations. Paternity suits followed, and Hill signed a record-breaking deal with the Miami Dolphins in 2022. Off-field incidents include an alleged assault caught on CCTV in June 2023 and paternity claims from former flames. Hill’s tumultuous personal life includes a brief marriage and a house fire in January 2023.

Despite Hill’s history of legal issues, the Dolphins have not commented on the recent allegations. Hill, without legal representation listed, has not responded, and Hall and her attorneys remain silent on the matter. The unfolding legal proceedings shed light on the NFL star’s off-field challenges.
