SMH. This guy sounds like a total d-bag. A woman is suing her balling out of control ex who promised her $300K to terminate their pregnancy then failed to pay up.
Via NYDailyNews reports:
The former girlfriend of a Levi Strauss heir is suing him, alleging that he promised her $300,000 to abort their child – but stiffed her on any payment.
Christina A. Helm, 45, filed a complaint against Daniel S. Haas in Superior Court Friday, alleging that Haas’ family held an unnatural amount of influence over him and, when Helm fell pregnant outside of marriage, told Haas to “fix” the problem.
According to the complaint, Haas had agreed to pay Helm $300,000 within 24 hours of proving to him that she terminated her pregnancy between Sept. 7, 2012, and Sept. 14, 2012.
This was only after she slapped him with a paternity litigation to prove that the heir to the Levi Strauss jeans fortune was in fact the father, Courthouse News reports.
The complaint goes on to say that Haas was only worried about his public image, and the media firestorm that could ensue after it was revealed that he had fathered a child out of wedlock.
“Haas’ personal predicament pushed him to the point where he would do and say anything to end his relationship with plaintiff, cause plaintiff’s pregnancy to be terminated, and silence the whole affair from the public,” the complaint reads.
Helm says in the complaint that she never would have had the abortion had she known Haas wouldn’t stick to his end of the bargain, and seeks $307,500 in damages, in addition to punitive damages for breach of contract and emotional distress.
We can’t believe this woman — in her forties — allowed her ex to talk her into this mess! He needs to come off that paper!
