PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Eagles defensive lineman Fletcher Cox is being sued for alienation of affection.
The Charlotte Observer reports North Carolina man Joshua Jefford says Cox seduced his wife and filed a lawsuit on November 22nd.
Jeffords says that he discovered text and Snapchat messages between his wife and Cox. The message included conversation surrounding the two having children together, as well as explicit photos.
Cox, 26, signed a six-year contract worth $102 million last year. The star defensive tackle has 5.5 sacks in nine games with the Eagles this season.
Jeffords, who says Cox met and seduced his wife when she was on a work trip to Pennsylvania in April, is seeking at least $50,000 in damages for “substantial emotional distress.”
