Tyreke and Crystal first met while college students at Oklahoma State University. They started dating back in June 2014.
On December 12th, 2014, Hill was arrested on complaints of assault of his then 20-year-old pregnant girlfriend, Crystal Espinal. According to the police report, Espinal stated the two got into an argument over a text message and he allegedly threw her around, choked and punched her in the face and punched her in the stomach. Hill eventually pleaded guilty to domestic assault and battery by strangulation and was sentenced to three years of probation, an anger-management course, a year-long batterer’s program.
After the arrest and guilty plea, Espinal eventually gave birth to their baby boy named Zev on July 10th, 2015. After completing three years of probation, charity work in his local community, and completion of anger management class, Tyreke’s case was officially expunged.
In September 2018, Hill and Espinal finally got engaged.
Crystal was born in Dante Texas. She graduated from Oklahoma State University in 2017.
Tyreek Hill is currently playing wide receiver for the NFL’s Kansas City Chiefs. He attended Garden City Community College, Oklahoma State University, and the University of West Alabama.
