Today, Washington Redskins lineman Albert Haynesworth actually has a good reason to be covering his face. Not from pain, but maybe from embarrassment.

Haynesworth is in trouble again. No, it's not with the Dallas Cowboys or any members of the coaching staff, but it is his ex, Stephanie Haynesworth.

Stephanie is asking a Tennessee judge to force Albert to pay their daughter's school tuition, veterinarian bills for the family pet, and other expenses since their divorce in 2008. 

According to Teresa Walker's article, Haynesworth and Stephanie separated due to "irreconcilable difference[s] and inappropriate marital conduct."

Stephanie is expecting an allowance of $6,000 per month in cash to support her everyday living needs and her family. 

Not only does Haynesworth owe money to his ex, but this is not the only legal dilemma Haynesworth has been involved in over the last year in Tennessee. 

A Tennessee man has sued hotshot Haynesworth because he reportedly caused a car crash in December, leaving the man in need of a hip replacement. 

According to, the average hip replacement surgery will cost nearly $33,000, but the man is suing Haynesworth for a whopping $7.5 million. 

Now, many can see why Haynesworth needed such a hefty contract that provided him with $41 million automatically. It is not because of his fancy footwork and hard hitting sacks, but to pay off his legal debts. 

Therefore, Mr Haynesworth, stop being the masked menace in society and be the menace on football field creating fear in every NFL quarterback.
