Monique Exposito Confessed That She Stepped Out On Hubby Alex Bastin
The woman who said she gave birth to NFLer Reggie Bush’s out of wedlock child admitted she cheated during her marriage to estranged husband Alex Bastin – but still wants him to take responsibility for the baby, BOSSIP has learned.
Monique Exposito filed her answer in her divorce case from Bastin earlier this month, where she revealed that she told her husband that Bush, not him, was the father of her baby, born on Super Bowl Sunday.
The mom of two – who is representing herself in the divorce case – revealed that although she cheated on Bastin, that doesn’t absolve him from taking care of the boy, Preston Alexander Exposito. In his petition, Bastin asked not to have to take any legal, parental or financial responsibility for the baby. However, Exposito objected to that provision but didn’t explain why in the court papers.
Bastin filed for divorce in January, claiming the marriage became “irretrievably broken” when Exposito got pregnant with Bush’s alleged son, Preston. The Miami cocktail waitress, 34, agreed and said she’d soon submit DNA results that show who Preston’s daddy really is.
“I will show the results to the courts at the appropriate time,” Exposito wrote in her divorce response, which was obtained by BOSSIP.
But a source with knowledge of the situation told BOSSIP that their marriage was one of convenience, and Frenchman Bastin paid Exposito $30,000, gave her a car as well as a monthly allowance for the union which would ensure he could stay in the United States. We’re told Bastin has since moved on with another woman.
As part of her answer, Exposito agreed not to go after Bastin for alimony, and also green-lighted a deal where they split their assets and debts down the middle.
Preston is allegedly the result of a tryst between Bush and Exposito. But Bush’s wife, Lilit, isn’t letting the alleged affair get in between her and her man: she recently announced on Instagram that she’s pregnant with her third child.
