Jose Reyes' ex-mistress said this week that the Mets infielderled a "double life" for six years, keeping a family at home whilemaintaining a secret life with a mistress and their daughter on the road.
Christina Sanchez told the New York Daily News that she and the couple's7-year-old daughter, Liyah, were Reyes' "road family."
“We’d go to restaurants, go to games, go shopping, that was the life I was living,” Sanchez told the Daily News.“It was a double life, but I wanted him to be a father of our child.”
Reyes and his wife, Katherine Ramirez, who married in 2008, have three daughters.
Sanchez also told the newspaper that many other Mets have families at home and girlfriends on the road. While she didn't reveal names, such stories are hardly uncommon in professional sports.
Sanchez, 31, says her relationship with Reyes ended in late 2015 after the All-Star was arrested in Maui and charged with domestic abuse for allegedly attackinghis wife.Ramirez, however, refused to cooperate with Hawaii prosecutors and the criminal case was dropped.
A judge recently ruled against Sanchez's bid to get her monthly child support payments increased from $11,500 to $41,000. Sanchezhad sought the additional support because the model says she put her singing career on hold while she raised Reyes' child.
