Urlacher accused of portraying son's mother as a murderer.
Chicago Bears legend Brian Urlacher is being sued for $125 million by Tyna Robertson, the mother of his 12-year-old son, according to a report by TMZ Sports.
Not $1.25 million. Not $12.5 million. $125 million.
What did Urlacher do to warrant such a lawsuit? According to Robertson, Urlacher, his lawyers and a Chicago Tribune reporter attempted to convince officials that she was responsible for the 2016 death of her husband, Ryan Karageorge, who died from a gun shot wound to the head.
According to reports, Tyna Robertson had told police she and Ryan had been arguing on the night of the fatal shooting and at one point, he reached for a pistol in her purse and shot himself. Last April, Larry Yellen of Fox 32 in Chicago reported the medical examiner in the case ruled Karageorge's death a suicide.
In the $125 million lawsuit against Urlacher, Tyna Robertson claims that he, along with his lawyers and a reporter for the Chicago Tribune, set forth a plot to convince officials and the public that the shooting was NOT a suicide, but rather Tyna murdered Ryan. Robertson also alleges that Urlacher was the mastermind behind it all in an effort to gain full custody of their son.
According to court documents (filed in Illinois) obtained by TMZ, she wants $25 million in compensatory damages and an additional $100 million in punitive damages.
