Who is Crystal Espinal, mother to Tyreek Hill’s kids before Keeta Vaccaro marriage?

Tyreek Hill recently tied the knot with long-time fiancée Keeta Vaccaroand; however, this is not the first time Hill has put a ring on someone. Previously, he was engaged to Crystal Espinal, but did not say “I do” to her.

Tyreek and Crystal were also in a long-term relationship and they have children together. Unfortunately, they did not get married and their relationship ended in a very unpleasant way. Even taking the matter to court.

Tyreek Hill’s kids with Crystal Espinal

Tyreek Hill and Crystal Espinal started dating in 2014, and Hill proposed to Espinal in 2018. Crystal Espinal has three children with Tyreek Hill. Tyreek and Crystal have three children: a son named Zev, who was born in July 2015, and twins Nakeem and Nyla, who were born in July 2019.

The relationship between Tyreek and Crystal had not been smooth. Crystal accused Hill of domestic violence and child abuse. In March 2019, when their 3-year-old son Zev sustained a broken arm, Crystal held Tyreek responsible for this and later he was investigated. Even though Tyreek claimed he would never do that to their son, he loves him.

Crystal disclosed an audio record where Espinal claimed their son had said, “Daddy did it.” She also said Hill punched their son in the arm and used a belt as a form of discipline.

The full audio conversation continued-

Crystal: “He is terrified of you. And you say that he respects you, but it’s not respect.”
Tyreek Hill: “He respects me.”
Crystal: “He is terrified of you.”
Hill: “You need to be terrified of me, too, bitch. That’s why you can’t keep a fucking man.”
Crystal: “He started crying & you were like, ‘Shut up, shut up, stop crying, stop crying.'”
Hill: “Right.”
Crystal: “He kept crying because he was scared. He’s terrified. You grabbed onto him somehow or he fell? 1 of the 2.”
Hill: “I didn’t do anything.”
Crystal: “Then why does he say, ‘Daddy did it.’? Why?”
Hill: “He says Daddy does a lot of things.”
Crystal: “A 3-year-old is not going to lie about what happened to his arm.”

Following their twin’s birth in 2019, Espinal filed a petition with the Johnson County District Court for child support and child supervision. The petition also confirmed the paternity of the twins. Neither Espinal nor Hill publicly exposed photos or information about the twins on social media.

Hill’s legal troubles with Crystal

In December 2014, Crystal accused Tyreek Hill of assaulting her. That time, Crystal was pregnant with their first child, Zev. Reportedly, Hill got furious after he saw some messages on Crystal’s phone and threw her laptop and phone in the hallway. Hill also kicked her out of his apartment while she was wearing a T-shirt and underwear. When she went back to the apartment to wear clothes, Hill punched her in the face and stomach, choked her, and pounded her head on the wall. Later that day, she filed assault charges against Tyreek.
