This is what would be the considered the walking definition of petty.
Christina Sanchez was denied an increase in child support (from 11k to 41k), so she decided to give the NY Daily News an exclusive interview on her affair with Jose Reyes and taking credit for his slow start to season.
Reyes’ ex-girlfriend Christina Sanchez says the struggling third baseman’s on-the-field problems are due to a guilty conscience over the six-year affair he had with her and over their 7-year-old daughter Liyah, whom she says, he abandoned.
According to Sanchez, who’s suing Reyes for a significant increase in child support, she and her daughter were Reyes’ “road family” while he raised a separate family back home during his tenure with the Mets, the Miami Marlins and the Toronto Blue Jays.
“We’d go to restaurants, go to games, go shopping, that was the life I was living,” Sanchez told the Daily News.
Sanchez claims that a lot of Reyes’ teammates had wives at home and girlfriends on the road, but she wouldn’t name names. The up-and-coming singer even says that she met her daughter’s godmother, who remains a friend, when that woman was dating one of Reyes’ teammates.
“I knew once I stopped having sex with Jose he’d stop seeing our daughter,” she lamented. “I knew it! I didn’t want to be his mistress the rest of my life. I couldn’t do that.”
Sanchez believes Reyes’ struggles on the field — where he has just three hits in his 38 at-bats, has struck 11 times and was benched for the start of Thursday night’s game for Bronx product T.J. Rivera — might go away if he steps up to the plate and gets involved in his daughter’s life again.
“I think so,” she said. “When you’re a father you’re going to have something in the back of your mind bugging you. You have to be broken inside to shun your own flesh and blood. If he does the right thing… we all make mistakes, I apologize to his wife, I as a woman want to apologize to another woman for what I did. But he hurt both of us.”
Snitching on the teammates was a little much, now their wives are probably going to be hitting them up as well.
