Jet cornerback Antonio Cromartie, legendary for scoring off the field — siring nine kids with eight women in six states — is getting blitzed by ex-fiancÃ©e Rhonda Patterson, who has written a damning memoir about their rocky relationship.
She depicts him as a champ in bed but a cheat who dumped her days before their $200,000 wedding and left her to give birth to his sixth child alone.
“Love, Intercepted: A Tale of Football, Falling and Failing in Love” is her account of their on-and-off relationship, but Patterson never uses Cromartie’s name, referring to him only as “he.”
It goes nameless because the story is bigger than him,” Patterson told The Post. “This is not a book to bash him. It’s meant to help women avoid making the same mistakes I did.”
She doesn’t blame Cromartie, noting he was raised poor by a single mom — a “less-than-ideal environment to learn how to be a man.”
In a romance that started on Facebook in 2005, she says, Cromartie lacked conversational skills, but communicated between the sheets.
“I will give it to the man — he’s talented, well endowed, and . . . it was truly the best sex I’d ever had,” she writes.
“He was one of those lovers who would caress you, stroke your hair . . . look you in the eyes and ask you to have his child. I thought his asking me to bear his child meant he loved me.”
Patterson, a corporate lawyer and former Miss Black North Carolina, says she was blinded by his charm and lifestyle.
She recalls he invited her to a party to celebrate his being drafted by the San Diego Chargers but acted odd. “I received a text message from him explaining that he needed his ‘space’ at the party and that I should leave him alone. That hurt.”
