So Now Brittany Norwood Allegedly Says Her Entire Lawsuit Is Embellished

This time a week ago, we were all just beginning to digest the Arian Foster "baby mama" story.

At the beginning of the day last Monday, Arian Foster was (as far as we knew) a happily married father of two young children who was rehabbing a back injury, anxious to wash the taste of a lost 2013 as a running back for the Houston Texans out of his mouth.

By the end of the day last Monday, most of that statement was still true. All except the "happily married" part. Also, the number of children he is father to, we found out, would be changing sometime in June.

As it turns out, Foster had been in a relationship with a young woman named Brittany Norwood who was pregnant with Foster's baby, and on top of that, she had filed a lawsuit that claims Foster and his brother, Abdul, had been "harassing" Norwood about getting an abortion. Norwood's attorney claimed Foster had been engaged in a pattern of "outrageous behavior" since finding out about the pregnancy.

These are all the things Brittany Norwood was alleging. Until she decided not to allege them anymore.
