A Kansas City radio station aired Tuesday the full 11-minute audio of an argument between Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill and his girlfriend.
The audio, aired by 610 AM KCSP, contained comments made by both Hill and his fiancee, Crystal Espinal, during an argument in an airport earlier this year. Much of the audio from that incident had already been aired by a Kansas City TV station in April.
According to the Kansas City Star, the previously unreleased audio that aired Tuesday involved the couple arguing about a 2014 incident between the two. Hill pleaded guilty to domestic abuse at the time and was dismissed from the Oklahoma State football team.
“That 2014 (expletive), that’s old,” Hill said. “That’s a lie too. On me, that’s a lie.”
Espinal: “But you sitting here calling me a b— and everything else —”
Hill: “But that’s what you is, bro. You (expletive) ruined my life. You lied on me in 2014.”
Espinal: “How did I lie about —”
Hill: “I didn’t touch you in 2014. And put that on everything I love, bro. That’s the real truth.”
Hill is banned from the team’s training facility as the Kansas Department of Children and Families investigates possible child abuse, battery or neglect stemming from an incident in March in which the couple’s 3-year-old son suffered a broken arm. A source told Yahoo Sports in late June the agency is still looking into the matter. The NFL initially said it would wait for the agency to finish before the league would begin investigating, but Hill and his legal team met with league investigators June 26.
Yahoo Sports reports that eight-hour meeting was “positive” for Hill and the Chiefs hope to have him back for the start of training camp.
The radio station played the portion of audio that already aired in April, before Hill and Espinal returned to the 2014 incident.
Hill: “That makes me really mad, bro. You ruined my life in 2015, bro. And if you want to rewind that night, we can rewind that night, too. You was in my house, and did I pick you up and slam you? Hell no. I picked you up and put you out my door and after that you left. And on my son, you did that, bro. And then when we were in the courtroom, you want to sit up there and (expletive) cry on the stand, ‘He hit me. He hit me’ Man, come on, bro.”
Espinal: “Then where did the bruises come from, Tyreek?”
Hill: “Did I hit you?”
Espinal: “Where did the bruises come from?”
Hill: “Did I hit you though?”
Espinal: “I’m asking you, where did the bruises come from?”
Hill: “Did I hit you? Did I hit you though? Did I hit you? Tell the truth. Tell me the truth in my eyes right now.”
Espinal: “No, you’re not thinking about what had happened. We’re not thinking about that. Right now the issue is (name bleeped).”
Hill: “No, we’re going to handle both of these issues right now, while it’s on my chest. Because (expletive) is still hurt over that, bro.”
According to Yahoo Sports, both the NFL and the Chiefs have heard the full recording of the argument. Hill had previously sent a four-page letter to the NFL denying allegations made in the recording, and Hill apologized for the “b—” slur.
Hill has not been fined by the Chiefs or the NFL, and there is currently no criminal investigation into the incident involving the couple’s son.
