The plaintiff in the case, Ashton Wittington, described by the New York Post as a "fashion blogger," gave birth to Ashton Arthur Wittington 18 months ago, the newspaper reported Monday, noting Edwards, 29, was also sued for child support in 2010 by "America's Top Model " contestant Nik Pace after she gave birth to Braylon Edwards Jr., now 3.
Wittington's lawyer, Lauren Mallin, said, "We expect Mr. Edwards to provide appropriate support for his child."
Edwards played for the Jets until his release two years ago, and was waived by the Seattle Seahawks last week. He returns to the Jets in Monday night's game against Tennessee.
