Not even hitting his first home run recently can save New York Mets' Bartolo Colon from this.
According to the New York Post, Colon has a secret family. Colon has two kids with this family, while he has four children with his actual public family. The secret family is now suing Colon for being a deadbeat father and not paying child support.
According to the New York Post, Colon has an 8-year-old son and a 7-year-old daughter with a woman named Alexandra Santos. The right-hander has never publicly acknowledged his second family, though his wife Rosanna says she is aware of the situation and the lawsuit.
“I can’t talk about that,” Rosanna tole the Post in Spanish, confirming that she was aware of the details. “This is personal and not something I want to talk about.”
Colon and Rosanna have four sons, and Bartolo has spoken about them on many occasions. The couple has been together since childhood and married for 21 years. Colon has earned more than $100 million in his MLB career, and Santos claims he is a deadbeat dad who does not pay child support and is not involved in the lives of her two children in any way.
A lot of athletes have secret families, but not many are good at hiding it. Colon now joins this list.
