      Young people especially those in sports and entertainment need to be told that young love rarely lasts. There are so many other potential lovers to meet in the course of their work. I feel he was manipulated by the woman since he had a child with her. This happens. So what if they had a child, they weren't married. This man had his life ahead of him in pro sports. What hood rat chick argued and bickered with him to the point of weakness and not realizing his career was the most important thing right now. That 's not living. Those demons caused them both to die and throw it all away. So sad.
