Newlywed Tyreek Hill Faces Two Paternity Lawsuits

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill is facing two separate lawsuits from women who claim he is the father of their children born in 2023. Brittany Lackner and Kimberly Baker are both demanding more child support than the $2,500 per month Hill currently pays them. Hill, an All-Pro NFL player earning $30 million annually, is accused of not adequately providing for the children he allegedly conceived with Lackner and Baker. Both lawsuits are ongoing in Broward County, Florida.

Lackner gave birth to her son, Soul Corazon Hill, in February 2023 and alleged that a prenatal paternity test proved Hill was the father. Despite Hill voluntarily paying child support, Lackner considers the amount inadequate given his substantial salary. In a separate lawsuit, Baker claimed Hill showed “utter and abject unconcern” for her six-month-old daughter, Trae Love Hill. She also insists that $2,500 per month is insufficient to cover the child’s expenses.

Hill has filed a dueling paternity petition in Kansas, expressing his willingness to perform parental duties and proposing joint custody arrangements. Hill was traded to the Dolphins in March 2022 and signed a four-year, $120 million extension, making him the NFL’s highest-paid receiver. He currently pays $13,500 in child support for three children from a previous relationship with Crystal Espinal.

Hill has not publicly addressed the lawsuits, and neither has his wife, Keeta Vaccaro. The couple recently married in a courthouse ceremony in Texas. Hill’s future in the NFL remains uncertain, as he expressed plans to retire at the end of his current contract in 2025.
